Securing geographically distributed, diverse facilities such as manufacturing operations, sales offices, research and development, and data centers requires advanced technology coupled with ease of deployment. Freedom Enterprise is a next-generation Physical Access Control System (PACS) application platform that leverages an open architecture and integrates a range of security management functions and devices. With Freedom, companies can build integrated access control and video management systems under one centrally managed or distributed network. Freedom expands as the security needs and physical footprint of the organization change, enabling it to build large physical security networks without requiring any additional investment in communication infrastructure.
Organizations of any size can integrate physical security devices such as card readers, ID management, visitor entry, alarm points, and video applications. Video management systems can be easily added to Freedom for a single, unified system. Another unique advantage inherent on the Freedom software platform is an open API for third-party technology partners or the enterprise’s IT department for specialized or custom integrations.
The Freedom platform architecture simplifies PACS deployments, by moving it in harmony with the technology direction that IT has been going for years—a proven direction that organizations have been investing in successfully for some time.
At the infrastructure level, Freedom is IT-centric, meaning that it takes maximum advantage of the capabilities of an organization’s IT infrastructure. That includes not only computing and networking functionality, but also infrastructure management functionality, and network and computer (cyber) security. It can be deployed throughout the enterprise like any other business application that utilizes networked end point devices.
At the application level, Freedom is IT-aligned in support of the customer’s preferred approaches to identity, credential and access management (ICAM), and can be easily integrated to relevant business systems.
