Quantum Secure, part of HID Global, a provider of secure identity solutions, is building momentum towards making 2016 the best year ever. The company’s SAFE platform now manages 7 million identities worldwide, up from 5.5 million at the beginning of 2016, making Quantum Secure the world’s largest Physical Identity and Access Management (PIAM) software vendor. The increase is from new customers in the social media, Fortune 100, financial, government and real estate vertical markets.
Simplifying physical identity & access management
According to Ajay Jain, President and CEO, Quantum Secure, the company’s ongoing success can be attributed to continued improvements and enhancements to their SAFE software suite that address today’s need for managed physical security. The innovative SAFE solution focuses on automating and simplifying physical identity and access management to identify potential risks and obtain actionable intelligence.
Mr. Jain said, “Our SAFE software brings a whole new slate of tools that can deliver qualitative insight to help organisations create a more sustainable, safe and secure environment. The same data can also contribute to productivity improvements and maximised cost savings throughout the organisation. Together, these advantages are helping drive our business forward.”
Key technology enhancements
- Predictive Analytics: A stronger emphasis on reporting to further understand behavioural anomalies to help detect and mitigate insider threats. New reports and dashboards include suspicious behaviour, erratic movement, exploration, and unusual timing.
- Facility Analytics: The software now combines utilisation plans from HR and real estate systems with real-time access data to provide information on how facilities are actually used.
- Visitor Kiosk: Improving the customer experience is a critical component of the latest upgrades to the Visitor Kiosk. Visitors may now check-in using passbook or wallet invites. Additional functionality for security teams includes workflow support for Outlook-generated meetings; and draft mode for saving meeting information.
- SAFE Agent for HID Mobile Access: The SAFE Agent for HID Mobile Access simplifies identity and credential management by enabling SAFE users to provision and manage mobile credentials.

Continued improvements to SAFE capabilities
In addition to these important enhancements, other upgrades to the SAFE portfolio include increased PIAM functions, platform support, agent and peripheral framework, and VIM capabilities, all of which are geared to improve security effectiveness. Most recently, the SAFE Visitor Management Self-Service kiosk was implemented to allow visitors to check themselves in using a mobile device rather than having to wait at a reception desk.
“Technology exists to add value to an organisation either by increasing revenue or decreasing costs,” added Mr. Jain. “Our continued attention to improving SAFE’s capabilities will help to ensure the value of both.”
