Customers with one or more PACS wishing to achieve physical and logical access convergence will benefit from the end-to-end solution provided by MyID, which is delivered as a fully supported COTS product.
(PRWEB) March 27, 2012
Intercede (London Stock Exchange AIM: IGP), the producer of MyID, a world-leader in identity and credential management systems (IDCMS), announced today that it has extended the range of physical access control systems (PACS) supported by MyID following a collaboration with US-based physical access security software specialists Codebench.
Intercede’s MyID solution leads the way in the convergence of physical and logical access control. Integration with Codebench’s IDSync PACS independent middleware increases the number of PACS supported out-of-the-box by MyID to more than 25, including Lenel, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, UTC, Siemens and Software House.
Demonstrating some of MyID’s capabilities, Intercede will be exhibiting at the ISC West event in Las Vegas from Wednesday 28th March until Friday 30th March. Peter Cattaneo and Dr Chris Edwards will also be speaking as part of the ISC Premier Education series, exploring the subjects of PIV cards and NFC-enabled smartphones for identity verification and secure physical and logical access.
Organizations around the world already use Intercede’s MyID software to manage identities, credentials and smart devices for combined physical and logical access. With MyID, the organization’s IT function maintains control of logical access rights, the building managers retain control of physical access rights and the organization benefits from centralized policy and auditing.
Richard Parris, Chairman and CEO of Intercede, commented: “Customers with one or more PACS wishing to achieve physical and logical access convergence will benefit from the end-to-end solution provided by MyID, which is delivered as a fully supported COTS product.
PACS/LACS convergence is a growing market driven by the desire for stronger security combined with standardization initiatives such as PIV and CIV. Intercede’s collaboration with Codebench extends the range of customers who can make use of MyID to solve their access control problems, enabling Intercede to distribute its market-leading MyID software to a wider global market.”
Geri B. Castaldo, CEO of Codebench, added: “Our technology partnership with Intercede strengthens our relationship with the market’s leading identity and credentialing management solution provider.”
