Expanded access control, video surveillance and cybersecurity features from this security technology company may be the direction of the future

by Brianna Crandall — August 28, 2017 — Genetec Inc., a technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, recently announced its new product lineup to be showcased at ASIS 2017 in Dallas, Texas, September 25-28. Said to be recognized by IHS Markit as the only vendor to achieve top market-share rankings across multiple security and hardware appliance categories in 2016, the company says it will demonstrate how its latest innovations help enterprise, transportation, education, government, and retail customers “Protect the Everyday.”

Security Center 5.7

Genetec will offer early technology demonstrations of Security Center 5.7, the next planned version of its open-architecture, unified security technology that combines access control, video surveillance, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), analytics and communications in one platform.

New capabilities will include expanded cybersecurity and authentication features; unified analytics to provide smarter, more actionable data; individual privacy and advanced data protection; and state-of-the-art graphical reporting.

Andrew Elvish, vice president of Marketing, Genetec, said:

Following a year of cyberattacks, privacy breaches, and shoddily designed equipment making the headlines, it remains our mission to engage and educate IT and security professionals on the issue of cybersecurity. At ASIS this year, Genetec will reiterate the urgency for its integrators and customers to establish trusted best practices to keep people and organizations safe and secure. With this latest version of Security Center, we continue to address these concerns head on by offering unmatched levels of authentication, encryption and authorization.

Security Center Synergis ACaaS

Genetec will also preview its upcoming Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) offering, designed to make access control more convenient and easier to maintain, with extended accessibility. In addition to speedier deployments, this new offering will deliver greater scalability and bring ACaaS to enterprise users, removing the need to invest in extra IT staff, costly on-premises equipment, and time-consuming maintenance requirements.

Expanding Genetec Streamvault appliance offerings

Genetec will unveil new additions to its Streamvault (SV) line of all-in-one, turnkey security infrastructure appliances. Starting this fall, Streamvault will offer a wider selection of enterprise-grade servers, workstations, and storage solutions. These will complement Genetec’s portfolio of all-in-one security appliances and deliver the same performance, convenience and peace of mind as the others, says the company.

Expanded partner ecosystem

Visitors to the Genetec booth will also be able to get demonstrations from its ecosystem of trusted security technology partners including a vast selection of cameras, biometric and access control devices, body-worn cameras, storage, and software solutions.

A global innovator since 1997, Montreal-based Genetec serves enterprise and government organizations via an integrated network of resellers, integrators and consultants in over 80 countries.
