Identity and Access Management (IAM) system
Increased efficiency and performance while offering top functionality, flexibility, convenience and security
Enter a new world of security
From unlocking the door at home or work, to buying a ticket on the bus, to entering a sold-out stadium, a growing number of places have come to rely on an electronic access management system. This practical and convenient method of authentication or authorization determines who may, for example, gain entry to a building or space, or use a particular service. While an access management system offers numerous advantages – especially to those who use them – many existing systems have unsecure solutions in their access control infrastructure, making them especially vulnerable to attack. In the interest of reducing potential risks, businesses and institutions are readier than ever to migrate from a less secure closed, proprietary legacy system with vendor lock-in, to a newer, more efficient and secure one that is open standard and non-proprietary.
The multi-faceted access management landscape
Nowadays, the market for access management systems is best described as highly fragmented. This is primarily due to the wide range of segments and applications the field covers. The scope ranges from corporate access control in office buildings and governmental institutions, to hotel room or sport events, or loyalty and micropayment schemes, along with many others. Because each segment comes with its own list of security requirements, most access management system solutions are complex, if not impossible, to scale. A further drawback: their security level cannot easily be altered once a solution has been implemented.
Thankfully, we now have ways to change the status quo. With access management solutions that increase a system’s efficiency and performance while offering top functionality, flexibility, convenience and, of course, security.
