Integrated product Expands Reach of IP-Based Security Management System

WELLESLEY, MA and NEEDHAM, MA – Sept. 14, 2006 — S2 Security Corporation (S2) and EasyLobby, Inc. today announced that they have partnered to provide integrated access control and visitor management capabilities. The product integration, available immediately, combines EasyLobby's industry leading Secure Visitor Management (SVM) software with S2's NetBox IP-based physical access security solution.

The integrated solution streamlines visitor management and provides the highest levels of security management by enabling customers to quickly and easily grant card access to those visitors or employees that require it, without exposing the access control system to unauthorized users. Customers using the integrated solution can control visitor and employee access, track visitor locations, and determine the duration for which a visitor or employee's card access is valid.

"This is what I find really exciting about our open systems strategy," said John L. Moss, CEO of S2 Security Corporation. "Because the S2 NetBox is an open platform, EasyLobby was able to connect their best-of-breed product with ours by using our open, web services API. They were able to do this quickly and easily, and have produced a valuable solution that our customers have been asking for."

EasyLobby SVM supports reception desk security requirements and prints professional quality visitor badges. With EasyLobby, visitors electronically scan their ID, all relevant information is automatically captured in a database, and a professional quality visitor badge is printed immediately. The S2 NetBox is an integrated security management system in a web-based network appliance. Offering access control, alarm monitoring, video management, identity management and other advanced capabilities, the S2 NetBox scales to handle the smallest single facility to global networks of related facilities.

"As more companies replace their outdated paper-based systems with EasyLobby SVM, we are seeing increasing demand for integrated access control and visitor management solutions," said Howard Marson, CEO of EasyLobby. "The partnership with S2 will not only help organizations to keep track of who is in their buildings and why, but will also provide them with a complete, integrated IP-based physical security system."
