Future-Ready Security for the Modern External Workforce
Today’s external workforce includes many nontraditional work arrangements, including independent contractors, temporary workers, online task contract workers, freelancers, service delivery contract workers, on-call contract workers, subcontractor workers and others. Recent studies estimate that 16.51 to 56.7 million2 U.S. workers work outside traditional employer-employee arrangements. And more than one-third have an external job as a primary or secondary job3.
With unprecedented growth in the gig economy, external workers represent substantial risk if not fully integrated into your enterprise identity and access governance strategy. As part of daily operations, these external workers may be given physical access to high-security and other sensitive areas. Without a unified, converged physical identity lifecycle process from hire-to-retire, the risk to your enterprise is real.

EXTERNAL WORKFORCE IDENTITY AND ACCESS GOVERNANCE
AUTOMATE. STREAMLINE. CONVERGE.
AlertEnterprise Contractor Management software converges IT, OT and physical security applications in an automated approach to external workforce identity and access. Manage contractor identities to reduce system-wide risk by automating processes and policies, starting with pre-verifying background and assessing required certification and training for compliance. Easily turn off access with the controls to grant or deny access in real-time as situations or emergencies evolve.
Managers are automatically notified at the end of contract periods, eliminating the huge threat from terminated contractors carrying active badges for facility access. Self-service portal access allows designated trusted agents to enroll contractor employees remotely for validation prior to arriving on-site.
