Identity and Access Management
Granting employees, contractors or partners access to systems usually works based on a username and password combination. Building entrance, physical access and employee identification in general are often separated from IT related types of authentication. Having an IT based access management concept brings the combination of both with a huge advantage of moving away from username, password only mechanisms on the IT side and having only one administrative system to take care of.
Identity card also known as smart-card systems provide strong security on both the physical and the IT side and simplify the process of identifying, revoking and controlling access to all systems and places in a companies environment.
