As approaches for logical and physical access increasingly draw on similar technologies, CIOs seek efficient methods to consolidate these two environments to save money and enhance security. With the evolution of smartcard technology, enterprises can integrate two security environments — physical and logical access — to provide consolidated management, improved ROI and a total security view.
An individual maliciously obtaining sensitive information by circumventing an online access point or a thief walking into an enterprise and taking laptops illustrate the same alarming issue — a major lapse in enterprise security. And regardless of the means used to infiltrate an organization, the damage can be significant. Traditionally, physical and logical access solutions have been the responsibility of two distinct organizations within a company. And each are often managed by two separate administrators and systems.
Securing multiple access points — wireless, VPN, desktops and facilities, for example — by relying on separate, often incompatible solutions is expensive, inconvenient for end-users and difficult for administrators to manage. Thankfully, advances in smartcard technology for physical and logical access have made convergence affordable and simple to deploy.
In this webcast you will:
- Learn about the changing enterprise authentication environment
- Understand why consolidated physical and logical access can generate a better ROI
- See how consolidated physical and logical access can provide you with a total security view for your organization.
