Airports are busy places, with crew members, passengers and employees constantly roaming the
terminals every day. Ensuring safe and efficient operations requires robust Identity Management
Systems (IDMS) that can handle the complexities (and bustle) of modern airports. The Safe Skies PARAS
report on Airport Guidance for Identity Management Systems (IDMS) sets out essential requirements for
Let’s explore how AlertEnterprise Airport Guardian software not only meets but exceeds these
requirements – making it an ideal solution in the aviation industry
1. Comprehensive Identity Lifecycle Management
AlertEnterprise Airport Guardian goes beyond basic identity management by providing a unified platform that covers the entire lifecycle of an individual’s identity within the airport ecosystem. From onboarding to offboarding, the software offers robust capabilities to manage identities, access privileges and credentials, and ensuring secure and efficient operations through automation.
See how Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) improved the badging process and generated a better customer experience for Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) with a new Identity Management and Credentialing System from AlertEnterprise.
2. Integration and Interoperability
Interoperability is a critical aspect of an effective IDMS, as airports often rely on multiple systems and
databases. AlertEnterprise Airport Guardian offers seamless integration capabilities with various existing
airport systems, including Physical Access Control Systems (PACS), Video Management Systems (VMS)
and HR systems. By integrating these disparate systems, Airport Guardian enables real-time data
synchronization, allowing airports to maintain accurate and up-to-date identity information across their
3. Risk-Based Authentication
AlertEnterprise Airport Guardian incorporates advanced risk assessment algorithms that evaluate
contextual information – like an individual’s role, location and behavior – to determine the appropriate
level of access. By dynamically adapting access controls based on risk levels, Airport Guardian minimizes the potential for unauthorized access, while maintaining smooth operations for legitimate individuals.
4. Biometric Authentication
Biometric authentication plays a crucial role in enhancing security and reducing identity fraud. With its
robust biometric integration capabilities, AlertEnterprise Airport Guardian supports various biometric technologies like fingerprint scanning, facial recognition and iris scanning. This enables airports to
strengthen their access control measures and positively (and precisely) identify individuals.
5. Compliance with Regulatory Standards
Adherence to regulatory standards is imperative in the aviation industry. The PARAS report emphasizes
compliance with relevant standards, such as the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulations and the Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) guidelines. With Airport Guardian, airports can remain compliant while implementing a state-of-the-art IDMS solution.
6. Advanced Analytics and Reporting
AlertEnterprise Airport Guardian offers robust analytics modules that provide actionable insights into
identity-related activities, which helps manage security risks and identify potential threats. Through
comprehensive reporting and visualization tools, airports can monitor key metrics, detect anomalies, and proactively respond to security incidents – ultimately enhancing their overall security posture.
But Wait, There’s More …
We couldn’t stop with just six benefits. Here are a few bonus benefits to deploying AlertEnterprise
Streamlined Identity Verification Processes
By streamlining the identity verification processes, Airport Guardian helps minimize delays and
Enhanced Collaboration and Information Sharing Efficient Operations and Threat Detection.
Airport Guardian enables seamless integration and communication between various
departments, including security, law enforcement, airlines, and airport authorities, to promote
efficient operations and threat detection.
Scalability and Flexibility As airports continue to grow and evolve, the scalability and flexibility of IDMS become crucial.
Airport Guardian is built on a scalable architecture, allowing airports to expand their security infrastructure without compromising system performance. The software can adapt to the unique needs of different airports, accommodating diverse processes and workflows.
