Cloud-based access control

November 2019 Access Control & Identity Management

Hattrix is a flexible and scalable security platform that marks a shift toward outsourcing security, similar to other services such as IT, HR, and legal services. Hattrix is now available to the South African market through Elvey.

By adopting one of the three options available under the Hattrix umbrella, customers avoid having to purchase, operate and maintain their own server and software.

Hattrix encompasses a hosted access control solution, a fully managed solution, or a hybrid approach, where end users can employ different access control services to meet their specific needs. This flexibility in offering gives customers the option to match the service to their budget and their specific requirements. It furthermore provides resellers and installers with the ability to increase and control their recurring monthly revenue (RMR). Hattrix is equally suited to enterprise or SMME-type deployments.

Hattrix uses 128-bit AES data encryption and has low bandwidth usage, allowing a migration path from traditional access control to a services platform. It includes an intuitive and secure WebStation which includes animated graphics, and email reporting of live events. This enables end users to remotely control their own security management tasks in real time over the web for a hosted approach, or turn over some or all security responsibilities to a managed service provider (MSP) for a hybrid or fully managed solution.

Hattrix is supported by the EntraPass Web platform and EntraPass Go mobile app, both of which are designed to enhance the user experience by delivering remote and convenient real-time access, to manage common security tasks. These include locking/unlocking doors, managing cards and schedules, requesting reports, viewing live video, and monitoring events by floor plan.

With cloud-based access control hosting, MSPs or security personnel can be located anywhere in the world, with the ability to remotely manage the access control systems on multiple sites.

Hattrix is true ‘plug and play’ connectivity. One simply plugs the system in and communication instantly begins, without the need for a technician to program the central station information into a controller. This results in greatly reduced labour costs, on-site programming time and IT expenses for both the end user and the MSP.

Other benefits of Hattrix include reduced infrastructure expenses; minimised reliance on access control knowledge; and elimination of maintenance inefficiencies. Due to the inherent software functionality, systems can also be updated more regularly. Scheduled backups, audit trails and automated health checks ensure that security best practice is adhered to at all times.
