Lenel certification allows all types of physical identities to be provisioned into the OnGuard system Quantum Secure, part of HID Global, has received additional factory certifications from Lenel, the company announced recently. Now, Quantum Secure’s SAFE version 4.9 is certified by Lenel for use on OnGuard 7.1 (version 7.1.481) and OnGuard 7.2 (version 7.2.269). Quantum Secure is a participant in Lenel’s OpenAccess Alliance Programme. “Quantum Secure has successfully completed required factory testing at Lenel to validate the functionality of the SAFE physical identity solution to the most recent versions of our OnGuard security management platform,” said Zach Roth, program manager, OpenAccess Alliance Program, Lenel. “This functionality allows end users to seamlessly manage various types of identities and their access privileges administered by OnGuard while automating policy enforcement and monitoring of compliance controls.” Physical identities provisioned into OnGuard system The certification allows all types of physical identities, including employees, visitors, vendors and contractors, to be provisioned into the OnGuard system based on the predefined rules and policies set within SAFE. The SAFE agents listen for data updates and changes in near-real time from an authoritative data source, such as a human resources management system or an integrated database management system. Then, based on the workflows, the SAFE agents broadcast these changes to the OnGuard platform. The SAFE agent leverages the Lenel OnGuard DataConduIT application programming interface to automate security operations, such as identity on boarding, off-boarding, profile changes, termination, rehiring, role-based access, PIN changes, compliance audit reports and analytics. “Our participation in Lenel’s OpenAccess Alliance Programmes enables us to stay current with OnGuard system upgrades, which in turn helps to provide additional value to our end users,” said Vik Ghai, chief technology officer, Quantum Secure. “The certification is a hallmark of quality integration.”

This newest addition to Quantum Secure’s product line analyses identity and security data from systems Quantum Secure, part of HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently announced it continues to establish new benchmarks in PIAM (physical identity and access management) solutions with the introduction of SAFE Predictive Security Software here at ISC West. This newest addition to Quantum Secure’s product line analyses identity and security data from systems 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 Software includes automated, actionable responses which can help reduce costs, reduce insider threat and enhance compliance. SAFE Predictive Security Software to identify risk “SAFE Predictive Security Software is designed to transform security departments into a proactive enterprise resource by identifying potential risk within an organisation and maximising efficiencies specifically related to that risk,” said Ajay Jain, President and CEO, Quantum Secure. “It connects the dots about identities and security systems to make data actionable to initiate preventive action and thwart potential incidents.” Mr. Jain adds that predictive analysis can also identify and forecast which policies are effectively enforced and which are ineffective within the existing security system. As such, SAFE Predictive Security Software comprises two subsets including SAFE Risk Analytics and SAFE Operational Analytics, each for specific security or business stakeholders. SAFE Risk Analytics is a web-based dashboard set that provides interactive views of risk-related Indicators of Compromise* (IOC) across the enterprise. Dashboard sets include Insider Threat, Alarm Analytics, and Risk Summary Dashboards. SAFE Operational Analytics is also a web-based dashboard that provides actionable insights into day-to-day operations including Facility Operations Analytics, Identity and Badge Analytics and Visitor Analytics. Quantum Secure CTO comments “The Security & IT industry is in a period of rapid evolution towards predictive, scalable and identity-centric solutions,” said Vik Ghai, CTO, Quantum Secure. “Quantum Secure is ideally positioned at the center of this evolution to bring complex predictive capabilities in simple actionable dashboards for end users. By incorporating predictive results into day to day operations, security directors will be able to identify hidden patterns, revealing risks or opportunities for staff, system or operational improvements” SAFE Predictive Security Software joins Quantum Secure’s SAFE Security Intelligence Portfolio. The 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.
