Genetec Announces New Access Control as a Service Offering

Security Center Synergis to be available in a Software as a Service (SaaS) edition; will deliver greater accessibility, convenience, and easier maintenance via the cloud

MONTRÉAL, September 18, 2017 - Genetec Inc. (“Genetec"),a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, today announced Security Center Synergis™ SaaS edition. This new edition will offer a turnkey access control solution for easier deployment and maintenance. 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. Synergis SaaS edition is expected to be available in November 2017, 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. Customers will also be able to quickly and efficiently deploy their access control system, and benefit from automated update notifications. Multi-site 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," said Derek Arcuri, Product Marketing Manager for Access Control, Genetec Inc. "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," added Arcuri.
