Case Study: The Impact of Cloud Security at The Jones
Cloud-Based System Secures Multiple Retail Locations
The Jones Group looks to Brivo’s cloud
solutions to establish one system and one management
interface for all facilities globally.
The Jones Group Inc. (NYSE: JNY) or “Jones”, is a leading
designer, marketer and wholesaler of branded apparel,
footwear and accessories. Some of its more recognizable
brands include Jones New York, Nine West, Stuart Weitzman,
Anne Klein, among others. The company maintains production,
distribution, and retail facilities worldwide.
“We wanted a remote, web-based system that would enable us
to control multiple locations at once. One of our goals is
to unite all of our brands by creating a strong and secure
global badge, a consistent form of identification throughout
the company,” explained Brian David, Security Manager for
The Jones Group. “Unlike a proprietary system, the
technology in Brivo’s web-based system allows us to minimize
the number of personnel we need devoted to security, and in
turn enables us to be a more efficient and secure company.”
Jones began installing Brivo ACS WebService® in 2008 and now
has cloud-based access control installed in six of its New
York City facilities, a facility in Pennsylvania, and
another in California, among others. Jones utilizes Brivo to
manage approximately 225 doors, a number which will increase
substantially as other buildings are brought online. In New
York City alone, the company relies on Brivo to secure 25
floors in several different buildings. The company has plans
to expand the Brivo access control management system to
include its office facility in White Plains, NY as well as
several distribution centers.

utilizes Brivo ACS WebService to manage access

to as many as the company needs to unify all
employees in all locations under one credential.
||“The Brivo system is extremely convenient and makes
constant access possible,”
David commented. “I recommend Brivo’s technology and
service. Our goal is one

||Installation of Brivo technology has resulted in
substantial savings by minimizing
the number of personnel devoted to security, while enabling
Jones to be a more
efficient and secure company.
||Brivo provides The Jones Group the ability to run multiple
reports to view all
activity in the company’s facilities, and to look for
patterns which may suggest
that something is amiss.
||Jones’ staff utilizes the
system’s alert feature to notify them about
fluctuations, power failures, and other critical events for
which they want immediate information.

integrating video surveillance into their Brivo system.
