S2 Security Partners with Blackboard Transact to Offer Physical Security Management to Education Customers

Strategic Partnership Offers Colleges, Universities and K-12 Institutions Flexible, Scalable Browser-Based Access Control Systems

  

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- S2 Security today announced a strategic technology partnership that will make S2's browser-based security management systems (SMS) available to Blackboard Transact's education customers, including college, university and K-12 institutions. Under the agreement, Blackboard will be incorporating the S2 Security NetBox and Enterprise SMS products into the Blackboard Transact security product suite beginning March 2013.

"Security technology plays a critical role in creating a supportive learning environment," said David Marr, president of Blackboard Transact. "Partnering with S2 will give our clients who have more complex security requirements even more options when reviewing security solutions from Blackboard."

S2's integrated access control and video management systems are extensively used in K-12, school districts, and higher education applications. S2 products are flexible, scalable systems that employ an intuitive, easy-to-learn browser-delivered user interface that can be tailored to meet the requirements of both novice operators and dedicated, expert security teams. Because S2 systems can be operated by authorized users wherever there is a network connection, emergency requirements, such as total facility lockdowns, can be activated instantly either on location or remotely via a wireless device.

"S2's products are popular in education because of their ability to scale, ease of use, and world class customer support," said John L. Moss, CEO, S2 Security. "Collaborating with Blackboard Transact creates new opportunities for us to reach education customers seeking effective, manageable ways to protect students, faculty and staff."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
