Quantum Secure today announced the release of the SAFE for Telecom software suite, a physical identity and access management (PIAM) solution designed to streamline the lifecycle of physical identities and automate related processes to protect telecom data centres and other high-risk premises from unauthorised access. SAFE for Telecom also provides strong predictive analysis using data collected from multiple disparate systems to generate actionable intelligence that allows telecom end users to take proactive steps and potentially prevent security risks before they can occur.
SAFE for Telecom collects and analyses data from access control, video surveillance, human resources and other disparate security and non-security systems. The software then applies operational- and risk-based analytics to this data to provide a clear understanding of security operations and risks. Through this predictive analysis, SAFE for Telecom identifies indicators of compromise (IOCs) that could signify that an incident or security risk may be about to occur. Using the actionable intelligence gleaned from this analysis, telecom end users can take proactive steps and potentially prevent an incident or event from happening.
SAFE Asset Manager
SAFE for Telecom also enforces access- and physical security-related compliance with government and other regulations and standards, and provides the capability to demonstrate compliance using a single automated policy and reporting infrastructure. To further streamline visitor and identity management, SAFE for Telecom allows contractors and vendors to self-manage physical access through designated authorised signatories. Another key component of SAFE for Telecom is SAFE Asset Manager, which provides central management, issuance and audit of one or more physical security assets, including metal keys and tokens that have been provisioned to identities that are managed within the SAFE suite.
“Telecom facilities are home to a number of critical and highly valuable assets, and given the sensitive nature of many of these locations, telecom companies need to be able to recognise potential threats as soon as possible. These factors underscore the crucial need for strong physical access and identity management,” said Ajay Jain, President and CEO, Quantum Secure. “SAFE for Telecom addresses both of these needs by creating a holistic, auditable environment that provides actionable intelligence to enable telecom companies to take a more proactive approach to security rather than reacting to events after the fact.”
