RedCloud releases new physical access control platform

RedCloud Security Management Software 3.0 provides a new level of flexibility, ease of use


ASIS International 2011, Orlando, FL – September 19, 2011 – RedCloud, formally known as PlaSec, today announced the general availability of its RedCloud Security Management Software 3.0, the latest release of the industry’s most innovative physical access control system that seamlessly integrates with IT and logical security systems to deliver a new standard in performance, scalability and efficiency.

RedCloud Security Management Software is a 100-percent, browser-based web application that is pre-installed on RedCloud’s all-in-one network appliances, eliminating the need to install individual software licenses on multiple user workstations. In one consolidated screen that is accessible via any web browser, at any time, from anywhere, administrators can view and manage alarms, video surveillance, facility maps and identities, including photo and ID details.

The latest release of RedCloud Security Management Software improves the management of access control policies across complex enterprise environments. Through data partitioning, RedCloud gives administrators the flexibility to configure multiple, unique sub-systems all under the hierarchy of the main system. With enhanced graphical map support, organizations now have real-time visibility of alarms within the floor plan for faster response time. Advanced global input/output ensures efficient threat responses by granting system access to emergency responders and temporarily suspending system access of typical users. RedCloud Security Management Software also provides the capability to quickly delete a large batch of identities, prioritize and color-code individual alarms and pre-define automated procedures for responding to active alarms.

“RedCloud Security Management Software 3.0 now delivers even greater protection, flexibility and control around system configuration and policy enforcement within complex enterprise environments,” said Terry Neely, President and CEO of RedCloud, “We’ve employed a customer- and partner-centric approach to enhance the industry’s only integrated access control system that works in both physical and virtual IT environments.”

RedCloud Security Management Software delivers the ease of use demanded by facility managers and the flexibility required by IT departments and is designed to address the access control needs of organizations across a variety of industries.

RedCloud Security Management Software is available on all of RedCloud’s web-based, access control network appliances, which includes:

• RedCloud Express, an all-in-one network appliance that delivers powerful, plug-and-play protection for small- to medium-sized organizations;

• RedCloud Enterprise, a solid-state access control network appliance that provides enterprises of all sizes with the performance and scalability to secure their facilities; and

• RedCloud Virtual, the industry's first and only VMware Ready access control solution purpose-built for organizations that have migrated their IT infrastructure to a secure, private cloud environment.
