Manage Multiple Access Control Systems with One Card
AMAG Technology, an Allied Universal® Company, announces that its Symmetry CONNECT Identity Management solution now integrates with third-party access control systems, providing more choices for users. Symmetry CONNECT is a policy-based physical identity and access management workflow platform.
Symmetry CONNECT can accomplish in minutes what can take days with multiple emails, phone calls, paper forms and physical signatures — saving time, money and the risk of error. Using Symmetry CONNECT, security operators can manage cardholders and visitors, import access card data and receive transaction data from other access control systems.
For large enterprise users who operate multiple access control systems across an organization, CONNECT streamlines the day-to-day operations and allows users to operate all systems via CONNECT. Employees can use one credential to open doors, rather than carry multiple credentials for different systems or facilities.
“Customers now have a choice; they no longer have to rip and replace their existing system but can manage all of their access control systems using Symmetry CONNECT,” said Jonathan Moore, Vice President of Product Management, AMAG Technology. “Future company mergers and acquisitions are easily managed with CONNECT, which streamlines and simplifies security operations for Enterprise users. This also demonstrates AMAG’s commitment to providing a completely open API for all Symmetry products, encouraging technologies from all industries, including our competitors, to integrate with our Symmetry Security Management System.”
Symmetry CONNECT meets Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA) standards. The PSIA is a consortium of physical security product companies and system integrators who work together to deliver interoperable security products. The PSIA develops open specification standards, such as the PLAI (Physical Logical Access Interoperability) specification. AMAG continuously demonstrates its commitment to providing open solutions by developing products with an open API and by sitting on the PSIA board of directors.
