CloudForce is a premier partner program designed to distinguish best-in-class systems integrators whose performance, investment in supporting Feenics’ customers and commitment to promoting cloud-based solutions align with Feenics’ core principles and philosophies.
The access control market in 2019 and 2020 can best be described as strong, but in flux — with changing architectures, changing customer expectations and demands, and changing security integrator roles.
A continuing strong economy, end user desires to do more with their access control systems and increasing interest in new technologies, integrations and models all led to a positive outlook in 2019 and a general feeling of optimism for 2020, with a few notes of caution.
Johnson Controls announced that its flagship access control and event management system, Tyco Software House C-CURE 9000, is supported on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), enabling customers to take advantage of the many benefits of cloud computing with the choice of best-suited service providers.
Security integrators and manufacturers see renewed interest from end users in the features, benefits and use cases access control can provide, and are starting to see an uptick in retrofits and upgrades.
For decades the dominant story in access control has been that it was a victim of its own success: that is, customers were reluctant to change out what was still working — even 15 or 20 years on — and didn’t see the benefit in spending the money to upgrade, even for significantly new or different features.
Feenics Inc., provider of the Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) Keep by Feenics cloud-hosted platform, has been certified as an International Organization for Standardization ISO 9001:2015 company. Feenics underwent an arduous 18-month process to become Quality Management System registered in the Design and Development of Cloud-Based Security Management System Software.
