|The installation of Quantum Secure tech |
in the lab provides students with a clear
understanding of PIAM and its applications
Quantum Secure, part of HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, has announced their sponsorship of the Identity, Credentialing and Access Management (ICAM) Laboratory at Washington D.C.’s Capitol Technology University. As an industry technology partner to the school’s Critical Infrastructures and Cyber Protection Center (CICPC), Quantum Secure’s pioneering predictive analysis solutions and physical identity and access management (PIAM) SAFE solutions are installed throughout the lab for learning and research purposes as well as being a core segment of the lab curriculum.
Hands-on experience and outreach programme
“The value of having a clear understanding of PIAM and how it relates to security operations and risks is incalculable in any size or type of environment and our SAFE product line is designed to deliver that insight,” said Ajay Jain, President and CEO, Quantum Secure. “We are thrilled to be a part of this learning/teaching opportunity to meet the technical and managerial needs of the nation’s homeland security workforce.”
The ICAM Lab offers intensive hands-on experience to develop the academic knowledge and professional skills that will enable students to advance their employment opportunities within the field of Physical Security, Information Assurance, Business and Acquisition Management. Courses for accreditation are offered at both the undergraduate and graduate degree levels and students working in the ICAM Lab will complete all core curricular graduation requirements. Courses for BICSI (Building Industry Consulting Service International) and ESA (Electronic Security Industry Association) accreditation are also offered.
The ICAM Lab also serves as a demonstration and career awareness outreach programme for high school and middle school students and offers internships for students from the Charles Herbert Flowers High School to conduct research activities.
New benchmarks in PIAM solutions
The establishment of the ICAM Lab follows the tenets of the Federal Identity, Credentialing and Access Management construct as well as industry adopted identity and access management (IAM) standards and guidelines.
With its SAFE Predictive Security Software, the latest addition to its SAFE Security Intelligence Portfolio, Quantum Secure continues to set new benchmarks in predictive analysis solutions and PIAM solutions. The SAFE product line analyses identity and security data and applies both operational and risk-based analytics to provide a clear understanding of security operations and risks. To further support analysis, SAFE Predictive Security includes automated, actionable responses which can help reduce costs, reduce insider threat and enhance compliance.
Quantum Secure’s SAFE Security Intelligence Portfolio provides web-based solutions that detail an executive-level, graphical dashboard view of a global physical security infrastructure. In addition to SAFE Predictive Security, the portfolio also includes SAFE Security Reporter 5.0, which provides real-time monitoring and event correlation of physical security activities and a custom report creation wizard.
