The cost to operate systems in existing silos is expensive and full of risk. Alert Enterprise
delivers a single unifying platform with a dual-focused objective:
Airline employees are used to interacting with a workforce in constant flux, making it harder for permanent employees to question the presence of unfamiliar faces. This leads to situations where malicious insider threats can remain hidden in plain sight. Work environments that employ a large number of contractors and operate “multitenant” operations are always more susceptible to insider attack. An insider can swiftly cause devastation to airport infrastructure, leaving little trace of potential damage until the devastation manifests.
Usually have legitimate user access to the system and willfully extract data or intellectual property
Systems slowly moving outside of reasonable parameters
Small incidents such as theft of IP or customer contact lists in a large volume of access pattern data that are difficult to detect
In 2014, Alert Enterprise participated in a pilot project with the TSA, deploying our converged cyber-physical platform to combat insider threats and deliver a unified threat response. The success of the pilot project revealed the power of real-time integration of cyber and physical security systems for identifying, correlating and mitigating insider threat related activity. Since then, Alert Enterprise has been selected and deployed at CATX and CAT1 airports across the globe.
A common digital identity for people and things is a starting point for provisioning airline system, data, network and physical access. Reduce the time and cost for detecting and resolving risk by automating threat protection across aviation IT, physical and operational systems from one place. AI and machine-learning Identity Intelligence technology automatically baseline identity profiles, allowing it to quickly sort through millions of events to detect behavior anomalies and trends for an effective response to potential malicious behavior and policy violations.
Identity Intelligence technology helps prevent airline insider threats by maintaining a risk profile for the internal and external workforce, tracking access to critical areas within airports and flight operations. Conducting upfront risk analysis reduces risk and cost, eliminates fraud and enhances security
Airlines and airports can reduce the risk with converged security that delivers real-time integration between IT work schedule applications and physical access controls systems. There are three common issues when airports don’t know airline workforce schedules
Alert Enterprise automates the entire onboarding / offboarding process starting with the pre-enrolment risk analysis that provide a high degree of automating for the vetting process.
Next-gen identity access management without a systems overhaul?
