Kenton Brothers has the honor and privilege of working with many types of customers including government entities. Recently, a governmental client located in the state of Missouri wanted to expand their access control system. The goal was to deploy it globally across their different physical sites across the state.
You may ask, “What’s a Global Solution?” Think of it like an ecosystem that enables users to knit together an entire security management system & video management system under one, centrally controlled, and distributed network.
This specific customer uses S2, an access control platform that Kenton Brothers supports and installs. This access control application made sense for the customer for many reasons, including the ability to monitor and manage multiple locations centrally. They can quickly build reports that run on a schedule, make security changes immediately that are reflected across the entire system, and build and administer global access levers that grant permissions across the entire organization.
Our S2 based solution took care of a major need for this customer. Previously, they were using a collection of off-line systems. These included mechanical systems with no audit capabilities and individual access control systems with no standardization.
The S2 Global solution allows them to have standardized security across all of their sites. They’ve reduced their liability, upgraded their commercial security, and adopted a centrally managed system. The results? Their business is more efficient, they receive expedited alerts of security issues, and they have the ability to expand their coverage across future sites down the road.
Whether Kenton Brothers’ clients need a standalone system or something as intricate as a global deployment for their business needs, we are able to help and guide our customers down the path that best protects their people, property, and possessions.
