Categories Access Control  |  Biometrics News

MicroStrategy’s enterprise-grade identity and security management platform, Usher is now compatible with multiple leading physical access control systems (PACS) including Datawatch, Honeywell, Lenel, Paxton, S2, and Tyco.

The company has been conducting demonstrations of Usher, including its beacon technology and converged analytics dashboard, and providing a live video feed of an Usher physical access implementation this week at ISC West.

“We are excited to be joining ISC West this year to showcase Usher’s physical and logical identity management and security platform,” said Michael J. Saylor, chairman, president and CEO, MicroStrategy Incorporated. “We will be demonstrating Usher’s mobile-centric solution and sharing exciting news about the availability of built-in integrations with numerous industry-leading physical access control systems.”

An Usher API adapter is also available for custom integrations. The company expects to include built-in integration with additional name-brand PACS partners in the coming months, along with the completion of key PACS certifications.

According to a statement by the company, by leveraging smartphones and tablets, FIPS 140-2 PKI, QR codes, Bluetooth (BLE) and NFC, along with WiFi and cellular communications, Usher is designed to deliver a safe, secure alternative to passwords, passcards, hardware tokens and other legacy approaches to meld physical and logical access and security in one solution that is backed by market-leading analytics.

“We never leave home without our trusted mobile companions, so why not take advantage of their flexibility and horsepower?” added Saylor. “Usher provides a secure, common-use platform to satisfy the needs of both physical and logical access control, including security analytics. The proper enforcement of access privileges is easy and secure, as our growing list of Fortune 1000 Usher customers proves.”

Usher’s incorporation of optional biometric, geo-fencing, telemetry and peer-to-peer verification features enable organizations to implement more sophisticated programs and deliver personalized user experiences.
