“We’re still seeing good solid growth. Everything that we’re seeing from our customers, with regard to their spending, plans and the things they want to do, indicates that they’ve got great roadmaps.”

~ Mike Mathes, Executive VP of Convergint Technologies.

“A client could choose that to get root access to an important server is to be physically present in one of their buildings. This could mean that somebody could tunnel in through a network connection and pretend to be onsite. So by linking the physical and logical access we can say they need to be in that building, in that particular room before they have any access to it. This now creates a whole new level of complexity for the hacker that wants to get in.”
