by Brianna Crandall — September 22, 2017 — U.S.-based AMAG Technology, a provider of access control, video management, visitor and identity management solutions used around the world and part of global integrated security company G4S, has just introduced Symmetry CONNECT, a policy-based identity management platform.
Named “New Product of the Year” by Security Today magazine, Symmetry CONNECT is designed to ensure that only individuals with the agreed approvals and requirements have access to secure areas for the time frame needed, ensuring a company meets compliance requirements.
Symmetry CONNECT automates workflows to streamline key processes involved in managing the diverse identities across an organization. By implementing CONNECT, companies can improve their organization’s internal efficiencies, reduce operating costs and satisfy compliance requirements, says AMAG Technology.
Jeff LeBlanc, AMAG Technology’s vice president, Client Services, stated:
Forget filling out forms, multiple phone calls, multiple e-mails and manual data entry to get approvals for on- and off-boarding of employees and access — that’s where mistakes are made and unauthorized people gain access to secure areas, exposing companies to multiple risks including violating compliance requirements. By converging identity information with physical security, Symmetry CONNECT changes how organizations manage risk and compliance.
Symmetry CONNECT is designed for new and existing Symmetry Access Control software users. CONNECT operates on most PCs, tablets or smartphones, providing quick and easy access to all data. It is available in several formats for North America customers: as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) cloud-hosted solution, hosted by AMAG in a secure monitoring center, or as an on-premise identity management solution installed at the end user’s premise or in their data center. International customers can deploy as an on-premise solution.
AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Security Management Solutions are deployed across a wide variety of market segments from commercial to government, education, healthcare, banking, transportation, utilities and more.
While Symmetry CONNECT can be ideal for any market, the identity management solution will be most beneficial for regulated industries such as financial services, energy, healthcare, and oil and gas, notes the company.
