A strong signal with converged security
With offices spread across Europe, Asia and North America, and physical security spread across multiple Physical Access Control Systems (PACS), the company deployed Enterprise Guardian Physical cloud software on Microsoft Azure to automate their manual processes for provisioning, de-provisioning, badge office operations, and badge audit of access for employees and contractors.
Additionally, Enterprise Guardian software provided direct integrations with PACS, Active Directory (AD) and other third-party systems to have built-in automated processes for onboarding new hires, terminations and other critical HR actions that would result in potential access changes. Enterprise Guardian’s self-service access request provides embedded processes for checking prerequisite trainings and authentication mapped to corporate AD systems as well as to a single sign-on (SSO) based solution.
