Managing identity and credentialing of employees is a labor-intensive challenge for any enterprise. Making matters even more complex, many companies have multiple access control systems and disparate databases. Quantum Secure has developed SAFE enterprise software to solve these problems. The SAFE suite of software automatically adjusts permission levels for each identity through every type of change, including authority levels, new access systems added to the enterprise or changing compliance regulations.
SAFE makes integration invisible, working with existing security hardware and infrastructure and creating a single web-based database. By connecting physical security operations to IT infrastructure, users can quickly lower operational costs, improve compliance and lower overall risk.
"Historically, companies have installed access control and other security systems that do not provide for centralized management of identity," said Ajay Jain, President and CEO of Quantum Secure. "Managing identities related to IT systems has also been a completely separate operation. This can result in inefficiencies, higher costs and gaps in security and regulatory compliance. Our SAFE policy-driven software provides a holistic approach, combining global identity with compliance and risk management."
Using Quantum Secure's SAFE software to manage identities enterprise-wide can streamline processes such as issuing ID badges, managing disparate databases, reporting across systems, adding new employees, responding to terminations and changing work assignments, and assigning access privileges across multiple physical access control systems.
Additional Modules include:
- Compliance with regulatory policies. Identify and mitigate any compliance concerns automatically. SAFE Compliance Regulator provides centralized enforcement of external regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley.
- Useful analytics and reporting. View your physical security infrastructure as a convenient dashboard. Data updated daily is available in web-ready reports for easy analysis. Metrics include alarms by site, badge allocation by type, and sites and devices that generate the most alarms.
- Simplified visitor management. Pre-register, approve, enroll and manage visitors.
