AlertEnterprise Inc., the physical-logical security convergence software company, announced that its Airport Guardian software has been selected by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) as the new Identity Management and Credentialing System (IMCS) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Airport Guardian cyber-physical security software will be deployed to deliver a new level of converged security, identity and access intelligence, and enhanced customer experience across IT, physical and OT systems. “At LAWA, we work hard to provide a high level of safety, security, and service for our customers, communities, and stakeholders,” said Aura Moore, Deputy Executive Director - CIO of LAX. “We’ve selected AlertEnterprise software as our new Identity Management and Credentialing System for its integrated, configurable, and futureproof design. This new system will enable us to improve security, enhance customer experience, minimise risk, and proactively enforce compliance for many years to come.” Ensuring real-time compliance With Airport Guardian software, LAX will be able to streamline and automate their entire badge lifecycle processWith Airport Guardian software, LAX will be able to streamline and automate their entire badge lifecycle process, from application to badge printing, and access provisioning. By automating core processes with role-based workflow and active policy enforcement, the airport can ensure compliance in real-time, which helps to eliminate costly auditing efforts. The deployment of Airport Guardian software will include a secure, web-based portal that will enable LAX personnel to manage employees, vendors, and visitors across their enterprise landscape. Applicants and Authorised Signatories will be able to start, save, and submit applications, including requesting access to critical areas that require additional approval. Streamline application processes With built-in schedule management, Airport Guardian software will help the LAWA Badge Office streamline application processes and enhance customer experience, including reduced wait times, and application status visibility to applicants and authorised signatories. The aviation content pack features DACS, STA, CHRC, Rap Back, and LMS integrations as part of the Airport Guardian software Airport Guardian software includes an aviation specific content pack comprised of Tenant Management, Incident Management, Asset Governance, built-in airport compliance, industry reporting, badge auditing, and process automation best practices. The aviation content pack features DACS, STA, CHRC, Rap Back, and Learning Management Systems (LMS) integrations as part of the Airport Guardian software. Airport Security Awareness training The Airport Guardian software’s powerful LMS integration feature is designed to assist LAX administration teams in tracking and enforcing mandatory training for personnel including active shooter, Airside Vehicle Operating Permit, and Airport Security Awareness training. “LAX is one of world’s premier and busiest airports, and we are thrilled that they have selected AlertEnterprise as part of their security modernisation and digital transformation,” said Ruby Deol, AlertEnterprise Chief Operating Officer. “Our game-changing approach of converged cyber-physical security is helping to make airports and critical infrastructure around the world more secure while creating a positive workforce and customer experience.”
AlertEnterprise Inc., global physical-logical security convergence software company, has announced its latest evolution in insider threat protection with the launch of its next-generation Identity Intelligence technology, available in the upcoming release of Enterprise Guardian and Enterprise Sentry software (“The system”). Identity Intelligence technology Identity Intelligence technology is designed to dramatically reduce the time and cost for detecting and resolving risk by automating threat protection Identity Intelligence technology is designed to dramatically reduce the time and cost for detecting and resolving risk by automating threat protection, across IT, physical, and operational systems, from one place. Its enhanced machine learning capabilities automatically baseline identity profiles, allowing it to quickly sort through millions of events to detect behavior anomalies and trends for an effective response to potential malicious behavior and policy violations. When evaluating potential threats, the system considers changes in identity behavior such as extended stays in secured areas, increased access attempts outside of regular shift hours, expired badge use, multiple incorrect PIN attempts, and unauthorised remote disconnections. False positives are kept low through powerful AI and the ability to train the system to learn from exception scenarios, helping to reduce the noise and move Security Operation Center (SOC) teams from distraction to action and focus on what matters most. AI-powered threat protection “Today’s increasingly complex networks, with more data, devices, applications, and users accessing networked and physical resources, make it difficult for security teams to detect and prevent insider threats, regardless of whether those breaches are malicious or the result of negligence,” said Ruby Deol, Chief Operations Officer of AlertEnterprise. “With the addition of AI to Identity Intelligence technology organisations can now address these concerns head-on.” The system delivers a clear view of what’s happening across an enterprise, providing context and awareness of correlated events, and empowering SOC personnel to make informed decisions and respond appropriately. Featuring patented risk visualisation, remediation and situational intelligence technology, the system delivers behavioral trends, statistical information, and automatic security policy enforcement. Intelligent security The patented active policy enforcement rules-based engine automatically identifies policy violations and unauthorised access The system's powerful dashboards provide operators with a risk score assigned to individual identity profiles based on access to critical assets, areas, and information, enabling them to conduct a proactive risk analysis before provisioning or removing access. The patented active policy enforcement rules-based engine automatically identifies policy violations and unauthorised access, allowing security managers to proactively monitor, and respond to suspicious behavior, criminal activity, security violations, as well as operational and procedural issues. “The attack surface is continuing to expand, and with the launch of AI-powered Identity Intelligence technology, we’re helping organisations move from a reactive to a proactive posture against insider threat with smarter risk management and identity governance,” said Jasvir Gill, Founder, and CEO of AlertEnterprise Inc. “Today, the world’s most forward-looking and influential CISOs know that security must be part of the process of enterprise digital transformation. We are ensuring that their vision for the intelligent enterprise aligns with intelligent security.” Enterprise Guardian and Enterprise Sentry with AI-powered Identity Intelligence technology is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2019.
