A new generation of visitor management solutions capable of handling many sorts of visitors to a site, including contractors and employees as well as customers, suppliers, and partners, is required by a more hybrid workforce that is not continuously office-based.
Fremont, CA: The workplace has evolved into a dynamic environment that is no longer constrained by a single location or network. Its security perimeter is shifting, and businesses are grappling with how to manage access to it. They must learn how to deal with new security concerns in the workplace, such as how to trust and control visitors, workers, contractors, and vendors, among other things. To build identity management for a protected, secure, and productive workforce, there are three core areas where this method should be implemented:
Secure Visitor Management
Pre-registration and automated check-ins and outs that cut wait times, as well as the opportunity to personalize the visitor experience and security measures while benefiting from automatic policy compliance, are all features of today’s unified physical identity and access management solutions. For instance, these technologies were utilized to welcome visitors back into the workplace during the global pandemic, allowing firms to go paperless with self-service visitor badge kiosks and automate wellness and other screening questionnaires.
Adding multi-factor authentication to a unified physical identity and access management system to improve remote work security does not have to be complicated. It should be quick and simple to set up, as well as intuitive for end-users. Several authentication form factors and methods should be available, allowing the organization to choose the one that best meets its unique security requirements.
Authentication solutions safeguard apps and data by requiring a second verification step, such as a mobile app, to confirm the user’s identity before giving access. Push authentication is convenient because it allows users to safely log in via a mobile app push. This will enable employees to instantly verify and establish their identity before accessing protected applications with a simple swipe of their phones. It takes just as little time to reject a bogus login attempt. Users can easily stop unwanted attempts to access enterprise apps and data with a simple swipe to refuse access.
Credential management systems should be simple to use so that employees and contractors may function safely both within and outside the workplace. Today’s cloud-based physical access credential management services streamline and simplify the badge issuance process for everyone, removing inefficient, manual processes in the process. In addition, organizations have access to specific information regarding issued credentials, such as who has them, what they’re for, why they were credentialed, and how long they’ve been credentialed. The cancellation of credentials is also automatic, lowering the danger of insider threats.
