Extending IT Authentication Tools to the Door: Unifying Physical and Digital Identity in the WorkplaceTORONTO, Canada – BioConnect continues to be a leader in the physical security space and seeks to unify the world of physical and digital security through secure identity-based solutions.
Physical security technology has been slow to keep pace with the digital innovation that is rapidly occurring within the enterprise. Access cards and key fobs are still as widely used today as they were 20 years ago. These tokens are easily stolen and replicated providing minimal identity assurance that the person presenting it at the door is its intended owner.
“Enterprises care most about protecting their most valuable assets – their people, data and IP,” Rob Douglas, Chairman and CEO of BioConnect explains. “The physical security systems of yesterday don’t have the intelligence and security that is demanded in today’s workplace.”
Leveraging Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) technology commonly used in digital security to confirm a digital identity, BioConnect explores additional secure cloud services to its platform for enterprises looking to provide an enhanced layer of security to physical access by serving a step-up notification to the requester’s mobile device for door access.
Leveraging Current IT Tools for Step-Up Authentication at the Door: The planned unified solution will allow an enterprise to verify a physical access request in conjunction with market-leading, pre-approved IT MFA solutions, like Duo, for mobile step up authentication across all physical access points.
Next Generation Biometrics at the Door: For areas requiring higher levels of security, BioConnect will provide mobile biometric authentication at the door utilizing the BioConnect ID mobile authenticator. BioConnect also continues to certify and integrate market leading facial recognition and fingerprint biometric readers from Suprema Inc. into the BioConnect platform for physical access security.
Unifying Data Across Physical and Digital Solutions: Data from physical security endpoints will be brought into digital applications like SIEM systems, and existing IT dashboards allowing one single view for all access data.
