Openpath was awarded an Excellence of the Year award for access control by Info Security PG for its work innovating the industry.
Culver City, CA – February 19 2019 – Openpath, a leader in workplace technology and security, today announced that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, named Openpath Access a winner in the 2019 Global Excellence Awards in the access control category. Openpath Access is an innovative and adaptive product that provides the ability to unlock building doors using only your smartphone, all without taking it out of your pocket. The prestigious Global Excellence Award recognizes cybersecurity and information technology vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions, and services that are helping set the bar higher in all areas of security and technologies.
“After founding EdgeCast Networks, a global content delivery network that grew to over 1,000 employees in ten years, we found that traditional access control was a major pain point during this period of rapid expansion. We developed the Openpath Access hardware and software to deliver a seamless entry experience and build a smarter security system for the modern workplace,” said Alex Kazerani, Openpath’s co-founder and CEO. “We are honored to be recognized by Info Security Products Guide for our mobile-first, patented solution that is bringing convenience to both employees and administrators.” With a 94% mobile adoption rate for its access control system, Openpath is the first company to do mobile access right with its hands-free mobile entry solution. This is an unheard of accomplishment in an industry with low mobile adoption rates. In creating a mobile security solution that employees actually want to use, Openpath inherently protects against the shortcomings of easily lost or stolen badges, pins and key cards with its secure, convenient mobile solution.
“We are proud to be recognized as an industry leader by Info Security Products Guide,” said James Segil, co-founder and President of Openpath. “Our team of experts in enterprise technology and security built the most secure, cloud-based access system that combines the personalization of mobile security with the cost savings of cloud technology. We believe this recognition from Info Security Products Guide further validates our commitment to our customers and their security needs as we continue to provide dynamic and secure access control.”
