Quantum Secure, the leading provider of enterprise software to manage and streamline security identities, compliance and events across disparate physical security systems, introduced today the SAFE for Small Airports solution, creating a new and simple way for smaller airports worldwide to implement a comprehensive badging, credentialing and regulatory compliance solution.
Designed specifically for smaller airports and delivered as a pre-configured and commercially out-of-the-box (COTS) solution, SAFE will allow smaller airports to simplify and automate the complex challenges of enrolling an airport worker into their security infrastructure.
All processes surrounding, identity verification, background checks and the issuance of an access credential and administering restricted-area access control becomes streamlined, allowing airports to quickly and easily comply with all mandated audit reporting and compliance requirements (such as those from the TSA and CATSA). SAFE allows for airport-related siloed systems to transform into a centralized identity and credential management tool to automate end-to-end security operations.
“We are extremely excited about the improvements that SAFE has brought to our credentialing and badging process,” said Steven Schultz C.M., Properties Administrator for the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport. “With our small badging staff and large badge population, SAFE has increased our internal efficiency while greatly improving the credential issuing process for our users and tenants.”
As is often the case in smaller airports, the proper verification and provisioning of personnel across their airport identity management infrastructure can be a challenge, fraught with disparate systems, manual processes and ever-changing regulations.
As a result, many physical identity and access management operations are handled manually, leading to costly human errors, a high cost of operations, long on- and off-boarding times for credential holders, failed compliance to regulations and a lower level of overall security.
With the SAFE for Small Airports software solution, smaller airports can:
- Integrate with AAAE Biometric Airport Security Identification Consortium (BASIC) system, helping airports to automate submission of fingerprint-based CHRC and retrieval of STA results from the TSC
- Integrate disparate identity and security data sources including biometric devices and card readers in a single centralized credential management Web-based console
- Provide a sophisticated rules and workflow engine to enable security teams to view, manage and control security events and resources from a single, centralized workstation
- Reduce/eliminate manual data processes and manual data entry errors to ensure no rogue cards/cardholders at the airport
- Automate identity administration and reporting across a single or multiple physical access control systems for centralized auditing and reporting
- Automate TSA (and other country-specific regulations) security checks and reporting requirements
“Smaller airports are often challenged with low budgets to automate security operations and yet they are mandated to be always in compliance with regulatory authorities,” said Ajay Jain, Quantum Secure president and CEO. “With our SAFE for Small Airports solution, we can now help airports to automate credentialing and badging operations, increase adherence to compliance regulations and drive significant operational cost reductions by deploying mostly pre-configured, commercially off the shelf solution.”
