Sequr success story
Creating a modern security management center using
Sequr + Cisco Meraki VMS Integration
Outreach is a rapidly growing 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 Sequr a cloud-based access control system. These integrated solutions automate and streamline provisioning and deprovisioning of employees and Sequr 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.
With Sequr’s integration to Cisco Meraki VMS, Outreach now has a comprehensive modern security management center that includes identity management, access control and CCTV cameras. They can easily review the captured video footage to determine any potential piggybacking instances across the enterprise, and link back to the Sequr access logs to verify. Within Sequr, a timestamp is created every time a keycard is used to access a facility, reducing the need to review hours of footage and ensuring that security compliance measures are being met.
“The Meraki integration with Sequr and Okta has allowed us to implement a comprehensive security solution across all of our facilwities. And we only have to use one system, making it easy to manage all of our security needs.”

How Sequr Helped
To address the piggybacking issue, a Cisco Meraki video management solution (VMS) was used to integrate with Sequr’s cloud-based access control platform. Sequr’s ability to link access control logs with captured video enabled Outreach to have deep insight into employee ingress and egress. The access logs in Sequr established a basis for identity, and the video footage obtained with Meraki verified the validity of the logs.
