HID Global

Amid rising concerns about security threats at stadiums and arenas where sports and entertainment events take place, HID Global, a global provider of trusted identity solutions, announced that its Quantum Secure SAFE Sports and Events Access Manager has earned the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) ‘Lab Tested’ designation, awarded to products that undergo the rigours of operational testing in a sports environment.  

Reducing risks by tracking visitors and contractors

The NCS4 designation gives event security managers greater confidence that the product has been validated as effective, helping to increase safety and security at events with large crowds. The SAFE Sports and Events Access Manager solution from HID Global tracks visitors and contractors to reduce risk, accelerate investigations and give better transparency of who is coming and going from a venue.

The National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security assembled a team of subject matter experts from the sports security domain to evaluate the SAFE Sports and Events Access Manager,” said Daniel Ward, Director of Training and Integrated Systems, National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) at the University of Southern Mississippi.

The team evaluated the technology based on stated capabilities, as well as the its ability to integrate and operate in sporting venues. The SAFE Sports and Events Access Manager solution performed at or above the levels considered by the evaluators to fully meet each requirement.

NCS4 works with recognised and respected safety and security experts from professional sports leagues, marathons, high schools and universities.

Event venues are increasingly looking for solutions to their physical access management challenges,” said Julian Lovelock, Vice President of the Quantum Secure segment within HID Global’s IAM Solutions business. “By meeting industry standards for securing stadiums and arenas with trusted identity solutions such as SAFE Software, we are expanding the options for protecting people at events.
