HID to integrate with RedCloud web appliances
HID Global and RedCloud have expanded their partnership, integrating HID's EDGE EVO and VertX EVO networked access control solutions into RedCloud’s line of web-based networked access control appliances.
RedCloud’s appliances include RedCloud Express, RedCloud Enterprise, and RedCloud Virtual. HID’s EDGE EVO product line includes single-door power over Ethernet (PoE) enabled controllers for organizations with an existing IT infrastructure. The VertX EVO portfolio comprises multi-door controllers with downstream interface modules for environments with an existing traditional access system in place and a limited IT infrastructure.
RedCloud will demonstrate the integrated solution at ISC West in Las Vegas, April 10-12.
“Combining HID Global’s latest IP-enabled solutions with RedCloud’s portfolio provides customers a broad set of options for open architecture, web-based access control solutions,” said Eric Widlitz, managing director, identity and access management, Americas, HID Global in a company statement.
“RedCloud is pleased to add a new layer to our partnership with the integration of HID Global’s networked access solutions into our portfolio,” said Kevin Wine, RedCloud’s vice-president of marketing. “As a member of our Open Field Hardware program, HID Global is an industry-leading brand and many integrators and customers will benefit from the freedom of choice and capabilities associated with a joint RedCloud and HID Global solution.”
According to the companies, RedCloud can retrofit to any HID VertX EVO or EDGE EVO installation, enabling HID customers to move to an open, web-based solution.
