Red Hawk Fire & Security and RedCloud Unveil Strategic Partnership
Nationwide Agreement Expands Availability of Web-based Enterprise-Grade Building Access Control Solutions
Boca Raton, Fla. – October 25, 2012 – Red Hawk Fire & Security U.S., a leader in fire, life safety and security services with a national footprint of more than 50,000 customers, today announced a strategic partnership with RedCloud, the industry’s fastest growing provider of web-based, physical access control systems.
Unlike legacy, client/server-based access control systems, RedCloud’s 100% browser-based access control systems provide organizations of all sizes with the freedom to manage building access anytime, anywhere from a laptop, desktop or mobile device – without having to install software or maintain separate, stand-alone application and database servers. RedCloud offers a wide range of products including; RedCloud Express for single buildings and small campuses, RedCloud Enterprise for multiple offices, buildings or locations and RedCloud Virtual for organizations running VMware in their IT environment.
“The reasons behind the partnership are clear”, said Mike Snyder, Red Hawk Fire & Security Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that RedCloud’s patented access control platform and its innovative system architecture gives our customers more options and flexibility in finding the solution for their access control needs. Their web-based technology also provides the most affordable expansion capability in the industry and integrates easily with other identity management, visitor management, and video surveillance systems.” Snyder said.
“Organizations no longer have to settle for expensive, outdated, client/server-based access control systems,” said, Dave Basil Chief Executive Officer, RedCloud Security. “Red Hawk’s proven technology expertise, program management and customer service capabilities as a leading national security systems integrator will allow even more organizations to join the RedCloud revolution and experience a new standard in performance, scalability and integration that can only be achieved with our web-based access control and open systems architecture.”
RedCloud’s scalable, enterprise-grade, building access control solutions are available immediately to Red Hawk Fire & Security customers in the commercial, retail, financial services, state and local government, healthcare and education sectors.
RedCloud’s innovative, physical access control solution significantly lowers the barrier to entry for organizations to secure their facilities, people and assets – from a few doors at a single facility to hundreds or thousands of doors across multiple offices and locations – without investing in expensive servers or extensive IT infrastructure, while integrating with reusable, non-proprietary door controllers and card readers from leading manufacturers such as Mercury Security.
