Creating a Modern Security Management Center Using Genea + Cisco Meraki VMS Integration

Outreach is a fast-expanding Seattle-based company that develops software to help sales teams close deals faster by using machine learning to streamline communication with potential leads. In order to support rapid growth across its three facilities in Seattle, San Francisco and Tampa, Outreach deployed Okta, a workforce identity management solution, and Genea, a cloud-based access control system. These integrated solutions automate and streamline provisioning and deprovisioning of employees and Genea manages employee access rights across the enterprise. However, Outreach knew they still needed to resolve potential piggybacking issues – where a person tags along with another person who is authorized to enter a restricted area.

“The Meraki integration with Genea and Okta has allowed us to implement a comprehensive security solution across all of our facilities. And we only have to use one system, making it easy to manage all of our security needs.”
