Genetec Unveils Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) Offering

The Software as a Service (SaaS) edition of Security Center Synergis is billed as delivering increased accessibility, convenience and easier maintenance via the Cloud.

MONTRÉAL— Genetec, a leading provider of unified security, public safety, operations and business intelligence solutions, has released its Security Center Synergis Software as a Service (SaaS) edition.

The updated edition offers a turnkey access control solution for easier deployment and maintenance, according to the company. The Synergis SaaS edition removes the need to purchase and install costly on-premises servers and streamlines maintenance, allowing the corporate IT staff to focus on other business-critical projects, according to the company.

The Synergis SaaS edition is expected to be available in November, and will be demonstrated at ASIS 2017 (booth #3147).

Synergis is the access control solution in Genetec Security Center, an open-architecture, IP security platform that combines video surveillance, access control, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), communications and analytics.  All Synergis access control software editions integrate with a wide selection of access control hardware from leading manufacturers.

The new Synergis SaaS edition will give customers the flexibility to adjust their system usage as their needs change, reducing budget requirements for access control capital expenditures, according to the company. Customers will also be able to quickly and efficiently deploy their access control system, and benefit from automated update notifications. Multisite organizations will be able to centrally manage their access control systems more efficiently.

“When we introduced Synergis Cloud Link a few years ago, our forward-looking strategy was to offer a future-proof gateway appliance that is Cloud-ready,” says Derek Arcuri, product marketing manager for access control, Genetec. “Today, we take great pride in announcing Synergis SaaS edition, which will allow customers to leverage all the benefits of Access Control as a Service (ACaaS), as they renew their legacy access control systems, while retaining elements of their existing infrastructure.”
