Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
Brivo Labs, an Internet of Things company leading the way in the emerging Social Access Management market today announced its recognition by Gartner in the 2014 report as one of the “Cool Vendors in Identity and Access Management.”
Brivo Labs was one of only three companies to be recognized in Gartner’s report as a “Cool Vendor in Identity and Access Management.” Each year, Gartner identifies “Cool Vendors” in key areas of technology that prove to be the most innovative and publishes a series of research reports. According to Gartner, “Innovations in identity and access management (IAM) are being driven by contextual access control based on social identity, identity development kits that can be connected to the Internet of Things functionality, and identity intelligence derived from big data.”
“Brivo Labs is incredibly honored to be recognized by such a well-respected and notable organization as Gartner. As we approach our one year anniversary of the launch of Brivo Labs, it means so much to us to be named as a ‘Cool Vendor’ and to look back at all we’ve been able to accomplish in such a short amount of time,” said Lee Odess, Vice President of Marketing for Brivo Systems and General Manager of Brivo Labs.
When Brivo Labs first launched in the summer of 2013, they unveiled Rändivoo, a visitor management system and that utilizes Saleforce.com to authenticate a visitor’s identity and provision them access to a secured space. Brivo Labs has since developed 5 additional innovative applications that connect virtual communities with physical spaces and devices.
In December of 2013 Brivo Labs unveiled OKDoor, a glassware that integrates with the SAM API platform to provide remote door access control with Google Glass. Brivo Labs intent with OKDoor was to highlight one of the many capabilities of their SAM API. OKDoor now serves as one of the first integrations that connect Google Glass to physical access management. Odess went on to conclude, “We look forward to creating more ‘cool’ technologies in the years ahead to further extend social access management in the IoT space.”
