Sterling, Va. (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
RedCloud, the industry's fastest-growing provider of web-based physical access control systems, today announced a strategic agreement with Schneider Electric. RedCloud gives Schneider Electric a greater breadth of cloud and web-based access control solutions that meet customers’ requirements for open integrated security solutions that are IT-friendly, scalable and allow for robust third-party integration.
“Schneider Electric’s mission to lead the charge in efficient and secure building operations is directly in line with RedCloud’s commitment to deliver best-in-class security with the highest levels of scalability and the lowest cost of ownership,” said David Basil, CEO, RedCloud. “We’re honored to be working with such an effective industry leader to expand the availability of web-based access control through Schneider Electric’s established base of customers and branch offices across the country.”
Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management and security, delivers comprehensive solutions for efficiency and security through platforms such as Andover Continuum™, SmartStruxure™ solution and EcoStruxure™ architecture. Through collaborative research and development with RedCloud, Schneider Electric is creating an offer that integrates RedCloud’s cloud-based solution into the EcoStruxure architecture, further joining energy and security capabilities and delivering new opportunities for its customers to secure facilities and reduce energy consumption. For both existing and new customers, midsized or large buildings, this offer will deliver best-in-class security and ease of use, whether in a single building or across multiple locations.
“In addition to larger facilities, the mid-market is a huge opportunity for Schneider Electric, as these customers have significant energy and security needs, but fewer resources to effectively manage their systems,” said Jim Sandelin, senior vice president, Buildings Americas at Schneider Electric. “Cloud-based offerings fit with these customers’ needs today for flexible, cost-effective and expandable security solutions. The addition of RedCloud alongside our existing platforms will allow us to further help customers secure facilities and reduce energy consumption.”
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.
RedCloud and Schneider Electric will be at the ISC West security showcase at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, April 10-12. RedCloud is exhibiting at booth number 2095 and Schneider Electric is exhibiting at booth number 18031, and representatives will be available to discuss the new relationship between RedCloud and Schneider Electric.
RedCloud is a revolutionary access control solution, engineered from the ground up by IT and security veterans to deliver a new standard in performance, integration and efficiency that can only be achieved through convergence. RedCloud’s patented, web-based, physical and virtual appliance platform leverages an open architecture, integrates identity management and video surveillance and achieves the highest level of scalability with the lowest cost of ownership, making RedCloud the logical choice in access control.
