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 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.
