“While we still see very few integrators in the grand scheme of things offering full managed access, almost all of the partners I work with have a customer that they think would be perfectly suited to being a managed access customer. However, I would say half of them talk about this being a long-term strategic goal for the company.”

Feenics’ newest representative Nancy Abou Eid and Director of Sales Brian Matthews will be attending. Feenics is looking to grow our international footprint and partner with select companies in the Middle East.
Ottawa, Can., November 19, 2018—Feenics Inc., an award-winning provider of the access control as a service (ACaaS) Keep by Feenics cloud-hosted platform, continues to expand its reach globally, adding an office and representative in Beirut, Lebanon.
Nancy Abou Eid, who holds a Master’s Degree in Computer Science and a Bachelor’s Degree in Software Engineering will lead the new Middle East location in Beirut and target additional growing areas including Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
Abou Eid was one of the first employees of Feenics and an architect of the original Keep by Feenics solution. Her focus will be on educating value-added resellers, consultants and users on the advantages of the scalability, flexibility and advanced security available in the cloud-based ACaaS solution. With the addition of this office, Feenics now has an established presence in North America, Latin America and the Middle East.
“I’m excited to be an integral part of the Feenics team again,” Abou Eid said. “The Keep solution has progressed dramatically since the company’s start up in 2010, as has acceptance of the cloud for safe and secure access control management. It’s where the future is going and the Middle East region is receptive and open to the advantages of cloud computing.”
Moving Forward With Keep By Feenics
If you’re an existing Feenics customer then it’s likely you’ve heard the terms “V2” or “V3”, so what’s the difference and why should you care?
“V2” is the second iteration of the Keep by Feenics Platform (we don’t talk about V1) which uses a SQL back end and provides the user access through a Microsoft Silverlight web application… typically through a web browser. If you’re logging into your Keep by Feenics Solution by typing “myname.feenicshosting.com” into a browser, this article was written for you.
So why does Feenics want you to move to their latest “V3” platform? During the architecting of this platform we made the strategic choice of moving to a NoSQL database called MongoDB, this was primarily due to its efficiency and scalability. We also decided to make not just one, but three user interfaces that allow users to choose between Web, Windows, or a Mobile experience. Our team is also hard at work expanding and developing new Integrations as we evolve with our customers.
Those GUIs, Integrations, along with a number features are the sizzle that your sales rep would love to demonstrate to you…. and for some of our more technical users, there are a few things our Engineers would hope you can appreciate.
The V3 platform has been architected to offer a superior cloud product by leveraging Amazon Web Services. Using their robust and proven infrastructure Feenics provides near infinite scalability, crucial data encryption, and is able to deploy servers to bolster load balancers in a matter of seconds. Feenics has also invested considerably in our V3 RESTful API which unifies all applications, integrations, and custom projects. This makes life much better for all consumers of the platform.
