Mo. school district selects RedCloud for access control

Liberty Public School District deploys company's Enterprise network appliance to provide scalable, web-based access control across 22 buildings


• Flexible, open architecture platform – With the legacy access control solution, Liberty was restricted to system access from a single client workstation in one building. RedCloud’s 100% browser-based web application not only enables the IT and security teams to manage student, faculty, staff and visitor access from any location and a range of mobile devices, but has also provided Principals and Administrators with real-time visibility into activity at their school, ranging from alerts when doors are propped open to lockdowns for bomb threats.

“With a single RedCloud Enterprise network appliance, Liberty has been able to shift from a restricting user access to single, shared workstation to a web-based solution that has provided IT, security and Administrators across 22 buildings with unprecedented visibility and control of their security management operation,” said Buddy Mason, ADS President. “The flexibility of RedCloud’s platform has even allowed Liberty to extend beyond simple access control. For example, RFID readers have been inserted into photocopiers so that faculty can use access cards instead of lengthy account codes for copies.”

“Whether building security is being managed by a physical security team, the IT team – or both – forward-thinking customers such as the Liberty Public School District increasingly recognize the benefits of a converged access control solution that they can easily manage and scale,” said Terry Vellek, RedCloud Vice President of Business Development. “The education market is one of RedCloud’s largest and fastest growing sectors because customers are searching for both the improved security and costs savings that RedCloud’s Security Management Platform delivers.”

RedCloud Enterprise is a web-based, access control network appliance that enables organizations of all sizes to secure their facilities, people and assets at anytime and anywhere from any standard web browserand is exclusively available through a global network of authorized integrators.
