General informationQuantum Secure provides an out-of-the-box enterprise PIAM (Physical Identity and Access Management) software solution (SAFE) using which security administrators can get a single self-service view of who has (physical) access to where, why, when and how thereby complementing existing security infrastructure of physical access control systems (PACS) and other IT systems such as HR and Logical Identity Management.
Challenges Addressed by Quantum Secure’s SAFE:Typically, PACS (physical access control systems) only provide information about who has access to where and when. But aspects of how and why someone was given access are captured through administrative processes outside of PACSs' remit. Through SAFE, security administrators can maintain and access an audit-able trail associated with all their physical access management processes which otherwise is managed manually over disparate sources such as phone calls and emails. This helps in measuring compliance and identifying (thereby avoiding) any risks such as people who continue to have access to areas which they should not. Additionally, this also helps in automating or streamlining redundant processes such as those around access attestation and role based access provisioning. The cost savings and benefits around risk reduction and compliance assurance are significant in the context of any enterprise hence could be easily validated at an enterprise through a scoping workshop.
Technical PerspectiveThese benefits are achieved using the following inbuilt components of SAFE:
- Framework to integrate with different physical access control systems (PACS) and other IT systems such as HR and Logical Identity Management (IDM) systems. Currently, SAFE integrates with over 90 such systems and this library (of connectors) is growing as Quantum Secure continues to work with new PACS at new customer organizations around the world.
- Policy/ Workflow Engine to enable workflows around various physical access management processes which are otherwise managed manually or over disparate systems and processes in an enterprise.
Quantum Secure’s SAFE is applicable for all organisations with a focus cost effective risk management and compliance assurance. Therefore aspects like size, scale, standardization (or disparity) of PACS do not matter. Currently, SAFE is live at over 150 organisations globally including major banks, oil and gas companies, transport authorities, airports and IT services providers in Europe.
