Guardian Physical (PIAM)

Guardian Physical is enterprise software that centralizes the administration and management of identities within the enterprise and maintains a close relationship to organizational roles, responsibilities and how they relate to physical access. Combining the decisions to manage the amount of system access with the extent of physical area access improves security, reduces organizational risk and lowers the cost of operations for corporate and enterprise security.

Enterprises today are conditioned to respond to incidents along the lines of their departmental silos. The current approach to handling enterprise security in departmental silos has failed to stem the rising tide of security breaches. Enterprise Guardian - Physical is the industry-leading Identity and Access Management solution that integrates Physical Access Control Systems and Badging with enterprise applications, HR systems and IT directory services like Active Directory and LDAP.

Guardian Physical™ from AlertEnterprise® delivers Physical Identity and Access Management solution that operates across badging systems from multiple vendors to deliver a common console that enforces uniform policies across all facilities, sites and locations regardless of disparate badging systems from multiple vendors.

It uniquely leverage existing Access Control systems by accounting for limits on the number of users a system can support and converting native systems to completely scalable enterprise systems with common provisioning and reporting across systems from multiple vendors.
