Hospitals and Healthcare
Today's healthcare facilities - whether small clinics or multi-campus hospitals - are a continuous turnstile as up to thousands of patients, visitors and medical and administrative staff come and go every day. Enforcing access control privileges throughout these open-to-the-public buildings is a challenging job as security administrators must ensure the safety of patients and staff, prevent unauthorized access to prescription medications, ensure the security of expensive medical equipment, and protect patient medical records per HIPAA requirements.
RedCloud enables healthcare system administrators to quickly and cost-effectively manage patient, staff and visitor facility access privileges from any web browser, for anytime, anywhere access without being tied to a dedicated client workstation or paying for software licenses per user. Ensure centralized and real-time management and visibility of public and private control areas including parking lots, emergency rooms, operating rooms, nurseries, administrative offices, pharmacies, hallways, waiting rooms and more - without the cost and administrative burden found with traditional physical access control systems (PACS). RedCloud's revolutionary access control platform is the industry's first and only physical access control system that enables physical and logical security convergence to deliver a new standard in performance, scalability and efficiency.
RedCloud leverages an open architecture and allows hospital security and IT administrators to seamlessly integrate IT and physical security systems, such as Identity Access Management (IAM), Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Physical Security & Information Management (PSIM) and Video Management Systems (VMS), as well as traditional back end databases that store patient records, visitor management, pharmacy and human resources information. Through this integration, RedCloud enables security and IT administrators to provide the highest level of security by correlating physical and logical security event information, monitoring alarms and rapidly responding to unauthorized activities.
RedCloud network appliances are easy to set up and ship pre-installed with a secure, open-source, Linux-based operating system (OS), which significantly reduces the risk of virus attacks, frees administrators from installing Windows security patches and ongoing anti-virus updates and eliminates the cost of operating system licenses and upgrade fees. And unlike proprietary access control systems, RedCloud enables institutions to leverage investments in virtualization, with the only VMware Ready access control solution, and non-proprietary field hardware, including contact smart card, contactless smart card, proximity, magnetic stripe and bar-code.
