Access Management

Why You Need Comprehensive Access Management

The widespread use of technology has led to an equal rise in cybercrime. In recent years, big names like Facebook, Yahoo!, and Equifax have suffered significant breaches, costing millions and jeopardizing the data privacy of their customers. In the wake of these breaches, access management has become a critical part of the cybersecurity infrastructure, combining technology and best practices to keep cybercriminals at bay. As Microsoft’s chief information security officer Bret Arsenault states, “Hackers don’t break-in, they log in.”

Integrating robust access management into your systems allows you to track and control access to your networks and data, preventing catastrophic consequences to your company data and assets. Whether your access management needs are physical or logical, we have a solution to fit your requirements.

Using the certainty that only biometric identification can provide, we authenticate individuals before you let them in. With the award-winning Biometric Engine and our Imageware Credential solution, interfacing to third-party access control systems, you can secure any restricted area or complete buildings to only authorized individuals. If your needs are of the data variety, our simple to use, quick to deploy, Imageware Authenticate can prevent authorized users from accessing your systems and data.

Secure Your Facilities and Your Data

Government agencies and private enterprises in every industry need both secure areas within their facilities as well as strong security for their systems and data. Imageware offers biometrically enabled identity verification and authentication solutions for every application. Whether it’s something as large as a country’s border or as small as a server room, whether you host millions of accounts or only your own data, your security solution doesn’t need to be complicated — just effective.

Access management

By seamlessly integrating with third-party access control solutions, Imageware brings the certainty to identity that only biometrics can offer to physical and logical access security. Using biometrically encoded smart cards, or live cameras, facilities can provide robust security without creating a bottleneck.

How Access Management Works

Access management (AM) is the practice of creating, identifying, authenticating, and managing digital identities. It provides different levels of authorization to these identities, controlling and limiting their access to certain facilities or systems, as well as the ability to perform certain actions based on set policies. This is a cornerstone of security: ensuring individuals have the access they need while protecting locations, systems, data, and applications for access by unauthorized individuals.
