Freedom Cloud: Subscription-based freedom cloud ACaaS powers remote access and anywhere operations via Freedom’s intuitive, always-up-to-date, browser-based web administration. Freedom verifies the right people at the right time on any device from anywhere in the world. Hirsch Velocity Cirrus: Cloud-based Hirsch Velocity Cirrus ACaaS allows users to control, manage, maintain, and update their security management system via a fast, web-based user interface anytime, anywhere, on any device. Expense payment options Identiv’s ACaaS solutions offer flexibility, reliability, and convenience to OPEX Identiv’s ACaaS solutions offer flexibility, reliability, and convenience to OPEX and pay-as-you-go customers. Compared with capital expense payment options such as leasing, bank loans, and cash purchases, the pay-as-you-go model is quickly becoming the preferred way to make payments as it allows businesses to stay at the forefront of technology, maintain competitiveness, and prevent obsolete technology from impeding growth. Due to the greater flexibility and cost-efficiency in the ‘phygital’ world it presents to vendors and integrators, this model continues to grow into one of the largest market opportunities post-pandemic. Securing the physical world “We are excited to showcase our products at ISC West and demonstrate how we continually achieve our mission of digitally securing the physical world by delivering innovative, end-to-end security solutions,” said Steven Humphreys, Identiv CEO. “Our new VMS and OPEX solutions allow organisations to take a leading-edge approach to security while being mindful of the customer experience. We look forward to demonstrating the unique capabilities of our product portfolio to ISC West attendees.” To meet with Identiv at ISC West, visit Veronese 2404 (Level 2) on Monday, July 19 or Tuesday, July 20.

Freedom is now available as a cost-effective, always-up-to-date Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) for subscription-based security management and video surveillance through the cloud. About ACaas software Identiv, Inc., a front-runner in digital identification and security, announced the release of Freedom Cloud, the cloud-based Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) offering for the Freedom Access Control solution. Freedom features the industry’s lowest equipment footprint and its cloud, subscription-based service gives organisations the option to pay as they go and only for what they need, equaling less investment and greater cash flow. Features Freedom Cloud empowers users to control, manage, and maintain their physical access control system (PACS) via Freedom’s intuitive browser-based web administration and helps hospitals, government entities, schools, and commercial customers manage all aspects of PACS from anywhere, anytime. Benefits Freedom Cloud transforms Identiv’s feature-rich, cyber-secure Freedom Access Control into a cost-effective, hassle-free ACaaS. ACaaS combines the benefits of Software as a Service (SaaS) with on-premises access control devices, access control hardware remains onsite and software and servers are removed and stored at data centres, making it possible for users to control access remotely and backup and store data securely. Troubleshoot remotely “Your cloud solution should not be weighed down by a heavy, clunky platform; that is why we created the Freedom Encryption Bridge, to literally lighten the hardware load you have to deploy and maintain onsite. By moving the server and infrastructure off-premises, Freedom Cloud boasts the industry’s lowest equipment footprint,” said Steven Humphreys, Identiv CEO. “Cloud-based access control addresses one of the security industry’s biggest pain points: troubleshooting. Social distancing and widely distributed work forces have made the need to troubleshoot remotely and securely critical.” Freedom Cloud and IoT’s collective advantage Combined with Internet of Things (IoT)-driven Freedom Encryption Bridges, Freedom Cloud is flexible Freedom Cloud software is patched, upgraded, and maintained seamlessly with no interruption to daily operations. Combined with Identiv’s lightweight, Internet of Things (IoT)-driven Freedom Encryption Bridges, Freedom Cloud is flexible and scales to meet the needs of even the most complex business, personnel and facility requirements. The easy-to-use, intuitive browser-based access system ensures a seamless transition from an on-premises solution to a cloud-based one — making the software always accessible and always up-to-date. Functions Identiv’s fully interactive video surveillance integration platform for Freedom provides an all-in-one pane of administration for both access control events and live video feed. The Freedom system also offers the ability to create a mobile onboarding email template that can be defined by the administrator, allowing for the sharing of the iOS or Google Play store link, as well as login information for the mobile app, ensuring a smooth mobile enrollment process. Cloud solution pre- and post-pandemic “The benefits of ACaaS are clear — lower upfront costs, direct remote support and assistance, and customisation,” added Mr. Humphreys. “Freedom Cloud keeps our customers at the forefront of technology. Pay-as-you-go preserves their cash and adds to the benefits of our cloud platform without hassles or risks. Cloud solutions are perfect for the uncertainty of the pandemic and post-pandemic era. Making that transition is top-of-mind for security dealers and integrators as they plan to bring an increasingly cloud-first approach to their customers in 2021.” Freedom Mobile software Along with Freedom Cloud, Identiv’s new Freedom Mobile is also available now, allowing frictionless physical access to a door using the native GPS and Bluetooth technology directly from a mobile device, replacing the need for a physical credential.
