September 13, 2022

Sentry identity card

Alert Enterprise, has announced a new partnership with Sentry Enterprises to provide SentryCard as part of their cyber-physical identity access management and security solutions.

Redefining Security and Trust

The SentryCard empowers organizations with assured proof-of-identity for employees, while overcoming common privacy and hygiene risks associated with other biometric solutions.

By offering the SentryCard alongside Guardian cyber-physical identity access management software, Alert Enterprise will help organizations to:

  • Prove employees are who they say they are when they access facilities and systems.
    • NON-TRANSFERABLE: once a person’s biometrics are enrolled on the card only that person can ever use the credential.
  • Prove employees are authorized to do what they’re trying to do:
    • ACTIVE POLICY ENFORCEMENT: Guardian AI-powered rules engine automates compliance and enforces policies across facilities and physical access control systems.
  • Enhance existing physical access control infrastructure:
    • NO RIP AND REPLACE: works with existing door hardware and readers.

Yogesh Ailawadi, Senior Vice President of Products and Solution Engineering says at a time when cyber-physical risks are increasing, it’s a win for cyber-physical zero-trust access, “With SentryCard being FIDO2 compliant, we’ll help companies add an extra layer of identity authentication and apply it in a converged cyber-physical approach for IT and physical access.”

The partnership has delivered immediate results with a successful phase one deployment for a Fortune 500 US Financial Services company.

Converged Cyber-Physical and Identity-Focused Security Is

The new partnership continues Alert Enterprise’s aggressive expansion within the cyber-physical security space and comes as research firm MarketsandMarkets forecasts that spending on identity and access management (IAM) will surge to $25.6 billion by 2027, up from an expected $13.4 billion this year.

John Calzaretta, President at Sentry Enterprises says the shared vision of converged cyber-physical security and identity is what’s driving the partnership, “SentryCard was built to address the requirements of IT, OT and
Physical Security access and partnering with Alert Enterprise, the platform leaders in this space will add tremendous value for our customers.”

Alert Enterprise and Sentry Enterprises will provide a live demonstration of SentryCard and Guardian at the Global Security Exchange (GSX) September 12-14, 2022, at the Georgia World Congress Center booth #2625. To book a meeting at the show visit: https://alertenterprise.com/gsx-landing-page/
