Vanderbilt International, a global leader providing state-of-the-art security systems, is pleased to announce the latest updates to VCredential, their cloud-based credential management platform that offers users the ability to create and manage Bluetooth credentials independent of the access control platform. Originally launched in September 2020, VCredential was developed in response to the growing trend of virtualization, a shift in the market to touchless door access, and the ever-evolving landscape of added security threats.
School is out for the summer, but as the new school year approaches and students return to the classroom, the need for streamlined security solutions has never been greater. Not only are the typical procedures needed to protect against physical security threats, but the increase of demand for touchless solutions also plays a significant role in educational facilities reopening in a post-covid society. Currently, over 90% of public schools are already using some type of access control and video surveillance system.
Cloud-based access control solutions are able to deliver remote access and instant management to protect the premise. As access control and video management are already key security systems, the shift to an open platform model is only growing. For example, Vanderbilt’s solution allows access to the system from any device, allowing flexibility for staff working remotely. Currently, the majority of Enterprises and many SMBs have either already made or are making the process of shifting resources to the cloud.
