Access Control as a Service (ACaaS)

Access Control as a Service (ACaaS)

Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) combines the benefits of Software as a Service (SaaS) with on-premises access control devices. These cloud-based solutions control access remotely and backup and store data securely, providing permanent records of who accessed controlled areas or systems.

Why It Matters to your customers

Many businesses need to keep their facilities or specific areas such as data centers, labs, or vaults, secure with access control solutions. Depending on the application, access control solutions may require that employees enter credentials via ID badge, smart card, RFID tag, or fingerprint or another biometric ID method. Permission can be set by employee or job description, and, once verified, the solution records the times the authorized personnel had access to the restricted area. In regulated industries, access control is imperative for compliance, but any business may choose to protect its facilities, equipment, files, or intellectual property with access control.

Why Access Control as a Service is an Opportunity

Access Control as a Service has a number of advantages over on-premises systems that can help you close deals. ACaaS gives administrators the ability to manage the system and review logs anytime, anywhere, through a web browser. Access Control as a Service also enables management of all facilities in a multilocation business from a central location. Also, it’s easier to add more users and change permissions. Some systems even allow users to use their smartphones to verify their identity access.

ACaaS vendors offer partnership opportunities for integrators, value-added resellers (VARs) and Managed services providers (MSPs), which includes training. If you provide solutions such as point of sale (POS), data collection, or video surveillance, expanding your capabilities to offer ACaaS as a complimentary service can enable you to sell deeper into existing customers—and find new recurring revenue business.
