An Internet of Things (IoT) company, Brivo Labs, has been recognised by Gartner as one of the ‘Cool Vendors in Identity and Access Management’ in their 2014 report. Brivo Labs are leaders in Social Access Management, a newly-emerging market segment, and one of only three companies that were recognised by Gartner.
Gartner uses key technology areas in order to identify a ‘Cool Vendor’ that are proven to be innovative and published in a series of research reports. According to Gartner, “Innovations in identity and access management (IAM) are being driven by contextual access control based on social identity, identity development kits that can be connected to the Internet of Things functionality, and identity intelligence derived from Big Data.”
Summer 2013 saw Brivo Labs launch not just themselves but also their Rändivoo solution that is a visitor management system which uses Salesforce.com to authenticate a visitor’s identity and provide them access to a secured space. Since then, Brivo Labs have developed a further five innovative applications that connect virtual communities with physical devices and spaces, including OKDoor, glassware that integrates with the SAM API platform and provides remote door access control using Google Glass, and connects Google Glass to physical access management.
Lee Odess, VP of Marketing for Brivo Systems, and General Manager of Brivo Labs, said: “Brivo Labs is incredibly honoured to be recognised by such a well-respected and notable organisation as Gartner. As we approach our one year anniversary, it means so much to us to be named as a ‘Cool Vendor’. We look forward to creating more ‘cool’ technologies in the years ahead to further extend social access management in the IoT space.”
