Guardian External Workforce extends secure workspace access, health and safety to contingent workers. 

Alert Enterprise Inc. today announced that its Guardian External Workforce is now available for online purchase on SAP® App Center, the digital marketplace for SAP partner offerings. Guardian External Workforce makes security, safety and privacy an integral part of the contingent worker hire-to-retire journey. The platform leverages integration with SAP Fieldglass Contingent Workforce Management to automate and streamline physical identity and workspace access delivering 360 degrees of visibility and integrated worker access management.

“In this time of unprecedented change, the modern workforce is experiencing a seismic shift as organizations increasingly need the flexibility to deploy contingent workers anywhere, at any time,” said Jasvir Gill, CEO of Alert Enterprise. “Guardian External Workforce helps businesses enforce security, safety and privacy for their contingent workers without compromising experience and productivity.”

External workers with physical access to high-security and sensitive areas may pose substantial risk to the enterprise as well as to security and safety compliance if not fully integrated into a physical identity and access management (PIAM) strategy. The cloud-based Guardian External Workforce platform unifies the contingent worker identity lifecycle process across the entire enterprise, closing security gaps. Companies can manage and track individual contingent worker profiles across multiple Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) and work sites, automating physical access for onboarding, transfers, job changes, training and certification validation, and off-boarding tasks.

In addition, available COVID-19 health and safety access governance and intelligence modules help the external workforce re-enter physical locations safely, using self-attestation tools, enhanced analytics and contact tracing features to minimize risks.
