PlaSec changes name to RedCloud

New name and brand identity reflect company’s growth and industry leadership in physical and logical security convergence


ASIS International 2011, Orlando, FL, – September 19, 2011 – PlaSec, an innovative provider of physical access control solutions, has officially changed its name to RedCloud, a bold, new name that combines the urgency and necessity for powerful on-premise security with the performance and efficiency of its proven, private-cloud-ready technology.

The RedCloud brand reflects the power of the company’s revolutionary access control platform, which leverages an open architecture, integrates identity management and video surveillance and seamlessly integrates with IT and logical security systems to deliver a new standard in performance, integration and efficiency that can only be achieved through convergence.

“The new RedCloud brand is a significant milestone in the growth of our company and more clearly aligns with our mission of providing open, secure and scalable integrated access control solutions to organizations of all sizes,” said Terry Neely, President and CEO of RedCloud. “Our platform has been engineered from the ground up by IT and security veterans to achieve the industry’s long-awaited promise of convergence. We invite you to join the RedCloud Revolution.”
The RedCloud Convergence Platform consists of an all-in-one network appliance that runs a secure, open-source, virus-free Linux operating system, includes an embedded OpenLDAP directory that eliminates the need for a separate database server, supports open field hardware from industry-standard manufacturers and is accessible anytime, anywhere through a 100-percent, browser-based web application. Combined, RedCloud’s innovative system architecture and groundbreaking platform allow organizations to achieve the highest level of scalability with the lowest cost of ownership when compared with legacy, client/server-based access control systems, making RedCloud the logical choice in access control.

RedCloud products and solutions are available exclusively through a nationwide network of authorized integrators and are designed to address the access control needs of organizations across a variety of industries. All RedCloud appliances are designed to provide the ease-of-use, out-of-the-box setup and simple installation demanded by facility managers along with the flexibility, integration and efficiency required by IT departments and include:

• 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.

RedCloud is launching its new name and brand identity as an exhibitor at ASIS International 2011, the 57th Annual Seminar and Exhibits event, from September 19-21 in Orlando, Florida, where it will demonstrate its web-based, access control network appliance system and open field hardware integration at Booth 4113.
