November 2016 Access Control & Identity Management, Products

S2 Security has released NetBox software Version 4.9. With a new photo ID badging system, version 4.9 makes badge management easier than ever by enhancing the user experience and expanding the ability to collaborate across multiple locations. Additional offerings, including S2 NetBox Virtual Machine and S2 NetBox Offsite Recovery, provide enterprise users with more system configuration options and security.

“Version 4.9 demonstrates our continued commitment to providing integrators and end-users with software updates that make their jobs easier,” said John L. Moss, CEO, S2 Security. “In addition, with S2 NetBox Virtual Machine, we’re giving them more system design options.”

The photo ID badging system is accessible from any location via the web-based S2 NetBox user interface. Within the new, flexible badge workflow, users can easily collaborate across multiple locations to complete badge production. Users can create custom photo ID layouts, adjust person records, capture photos, add photo IDs and print badges. Photo IDs can be captured locally and printed offsite from any networked printer.

S2 Mobile Security Officer 2.0 users can capture photo IDs and review photo requests from iPhone or iPad. Also in Version 4.9, S2 NetBox Virtual Machine enables users to create a custom S2 NetBox system supporting up to 7168 portals on their preferred hardware platform. The S2 NetBox Offsite Recovery feature safeguards system operation by immediately directing S2 Nodes to a secondary S2 NetBox controller in the event of a physical disaster.
