HID Global, a provider of trusted identity solutions, introduces Quantum Secure SAFE Enterprise, an off-the-shelf addition to its SAFE Physical Identity and Access Management (PIAM) offering that brings together everything organisations need to streamline and centralise management of the entire lifecycle for employee, contractor and visitor identities.
“SAFE Enterprise transforms the security function, enabling collaboration across different departments and teams to address identity management and compliance challenges through a single, centralised platform,” said Julian Lovelock, Vice President of Quantum Secure - Identity & Access Management Solutions (IAMS) with HID Global. “It bundles our core products into the industry’s most comprehensive PIAM solution, while also giving organisations the flexibility to meet identity management needs today and in the future.”
Consistent identity management
SAFE Enterprise enables organisations to manage all of their identity types at a lower cost and without having to purchase separate, stand-alone products. As a centralized platform, it facilitates identity management across the entire lifecycle through on-boarding, badging, access rights management and off-boarding, while also providing compliance and actionable intelligence.
The policy-driven software ensures that consistent identity management processes are applied throughout the enterprise regardless of existing infrastructure and new acquisitions. All identities can be properly vetted and authorised based on role, location and other organisational policies so people have the right access to the right areas and for the right length of time to reduce risks.
Special configuration packages
The new solution consists of four modules and add-ins. Each delivers compliance reporting and auditing functionality and is available in special configuration packages for applications in healthcare, aviation, finance, government, and sports and events. The modules include:
- Badge Manager: Provides a platform to use external identity sources to pre-load identity information, capture badging prerequisites and print badges for employees and contractors.
- Advanced Access Manager: Streamlines central management of the physical access lifecycle for an organization’s employees and contractors.
- Visitor Manager: Securely and quickly manages the entire visitor lifecycle from easy pre-registration to welcoming visitor invitations through rapid check-in and check-out.
- Security Reporter and Operations Analytics: Enables organisations to understand and coordinate all on-boarding, badging, and access and visitor management activities.
The first of many planned add-ins to be offered for SAFE Enterprise is predictive analytics, which transforms security data into critical knowledge and actionable insights called Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) that help organisations take preventive actions against possible threats.
