Openpath and Cisco Meraki Deliver Best-in-Class Cloud-Based Security and Access Control
CULVER CITY, Calif., Feb. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Openpath, a leader in touchless, modern access control and workplace safety automation, today announces a new Video Management System (VMS) partnership integration with Cisco Meraki. Openpath's access control capabilities will be paired with Cisco Meraki's industry-leading cloud-based technology, including smart camera intelligence that delivers data and analytics providing insights that help users make smarter business decisions. Through an all-in-one security platform, designed for both video and access control, integrating security has never been easier.
The enterprise-grade features of both systems offer Cisco's powerful global sales channel and customer base a solution for those who require cloud-first, security technology that can be managed from any location in real time.
"Physical security needs have significantly evolved in the last decade, becoming more and more complex," said Bret Hull, Chief Technology Officer for Cisco Meraki. "Our partnership with Openpath enables our end customers to use two complementary portfolios, rooted in shared beliefs of simplicity and security, helping them better secure and safeguard their infrastructure."
Moving to a cloud-based solution eliminates the costs associated with managing on premise software, and provides additional benefits to users such as:
"The combination of Cisco Meraki and Openpath gives us an easy to access security dashboard from which we can monitor our sites and adjust our access privileges, hours of operation and work groups all remotely. This has come in handy with the latest COVID-19 workplace changes we've implemented," said Andy Phelps, IT Director at the University of Virginia Biocomplexity Institute. "I don't have to hire a bunch of people to manage a complex on-prem system and we can monitor all of our facilities, track arrivals, departures, change permissions and troubleshoot alerts all remotely and in real time."
"It is more important than ever that organizations have flexible and agile platforms that can be quickly adapted to meet the security needs of today and tomorrow. Traditional, on-premise security systems don't make this easy, but our smart, cloud-based technology does," said Alex Kazerani, CEO and Co-Founder of Openpath. "We're thrilled to partner with Cisco Meraki, the industry-leader in cloud-controlled WiFi, routing and security to make the most integrated security platform available for the enterprise and look forward to continuing to build on these innovations to safeguard our joint customers."
