Reporting, Compliance and Audits

One of the key requirements in the Financial vertical is the ability to demonstrate compliance. BluSKY makes it easy to do this with flexible and automated reporting that can be sent to any distribution list on any schedule. Additionally, custom reports can be created through BluCARE Professional Services and made available through the BluSKY interface. Audits are also made easier through BluSKY distributed administration where multiple people can audit portions of the physical security system at any time. The BluSKY Web-Cloud interface lets you audit from anywhere and provides complete system documentation and access to the portion of the system a person has been given permissions.
