ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions adds cloud management capability to Incedo

THE INCEDO access management solution from ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions is created for businesses on the move requiring a flexible security solution which grows with the company. Now, security managers using an Incedo Business Cloud solution can work remotely while maintaining complete control over a given building’s access points.

Incedo connects security software and hardware within a single, seamless platform. To accommodate the change and disruption common with modern business life, Incedo enables scaling up or down on demand. The Incedo Business Cloud management solution keeps security and facility managers in control of their premises from wherever they might happen to be.

Incedo Business Cloud solves many of the pressing daily challenges involved with access management. Managers no longer need to be on-site to handle day-to-day security. Incedo Business Cloud operates securely 24/7 from any PC with an Internet connection. Installing the system is easy with no complex integrations needed. Software updates are regular and automatic, with real-time reports and analytics available.

Incedo Business Cloud works ‘out of the box’ via a cost-efficient subscription service. No more waiting around for engineer call-outs. On-boarding is fast and hassle-free. What’s more, security managers can feel confident about confidentiality: business and user data are safeguarded with an Information Security Management System certified to ISO/IEC 27001.

According to the Wireless Access Control Report 2021, over one third of companies now use cloud-based management to power their access control. That percentate is likely to grow in the years ahead as working practices become even more mobile and the notion of being ‘at work’ describes a state of being rather than a specific place. Indeed, another recent report finds 78% of IT decision-makers anticipate growing their reliance on cloud solutions going forward.

Streamlined processes

A cloud solution makes access management easier and more convenient, helping companies to design security administration processes which are streamlined, location-independent and efficient. For any size of organisation, switching to Incedo Business Cloud implements this powerful access control with no high up-front costs and ongoing cost-effectiveness.

“A cloud software solution makes budgeting more predictable for facility and security managers,” stated Stephanie Ordan, vice-president of digital and access solutions at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEA. “It removes the need to hire additional in-house IT support and maintenance teams. You know ahead of time how much resource to allocate and can scale infrastructure up or down quickly. The business benefits of ‘managing access rights from anywhere’ drive a greater demand for cloud solutions within security and beyond.”

Ordan continued: “Survey data shows that the way companies manage access control will continue to be a mixed picture, with both locally hosted and off-site cloud solutions for Access Control-as-a-Service. This is why, when launching our Incedo ecosystem, we wanted to give users the choice.”

Migration between Incedo’s local and cloud management options is always seamless in any direction, in fact, ensuring total flexibility for any business.

Efficient access

Incedo Business Cloud makes access control more efficient for everyone, from installers to end users. A modular platform-based approach makes both procurement and operation simpler. Managers choose the security hardware and credentials they need together with the appropriate management system.

ASSA ABLOY’s wireless digital locks and wired ASSA ABLOY wall readers secure the doors. A choice of card and token credentials – or mobile keys on a smart phone – helps end users enjoy safe and convenient access to, and movement around, the premises.

New Incedo-enabled hardware from ASSA ABLOY and third party providers will continue to be made available within the evolving Incedo ecosystem. Security professionals can add doors or locations and switch between local and cloud management as often as required. Incedo guarantees flexibility and scalability in every direction to meet security needs today and into the future.

“This latest enhancement of our Incedo solution turns comprehensive, real-time, remote access management into a reality,” concluded Ordan. “Incedo will keep premises secure and filter access intelligently in order to manage the ever-changing movement of people across multiple sites. Today’s businesses are not static so there’s no reason why their security should be.”
