HID Safe helps recovery of aviation travel industry

Austin, Tx (USA)

As airports navigate an uneven return to pre-pandemic operations, many of the largest are using HID Safe for Aviation as a unified physical identity and access management solution for defending against security and safety threats while consolidating, automating, and simplifying associated administrative and regulatory processes.

HID technology is helping major airports around the world enhance safety and security during a period of unprecedented uncertainty about air travel recovery.

One airport, according to HID, is using the web-based HID solution to manage more than 15,000 identities for secure airport access and reduce duplicate data input, enhance customer service, achieve paperless records management, cut costs, and improve efficiency.

A second is managing close to 1,000 badges and has adopted the first cloud-hosted model that enabled it to integrate Safe for Aviation with its existing physical and IT infrastructure and other authoritative systems.

And, a third deployment supports a nationwide initiative to bring two dozen airports into compliance with strict government standards. It includes access policy enforcement through regular audits, and a 360 degree view of issued credentials and their privileges and permissions.

Airports face complex security and safety challenges while trying to support unpredictable passenger volumes and associated staffing and operational requirements. These challenges cannot be solved with standalone access control systems for managing workforce credentialing. HID Safe for Aviation takes the next step by also supporting vendor and visitor onboarding and badging, identity management, and TSA and Covid-19 requirements such as contactless check-ins and visitor screening against internal and external watchlists.

The HID Safe for Aviation offering combines an advanced access manager, badge manager, visitor manager and security reporter with operations analytics to provide complete security across the organisation. It also delivers actionable security insights and reports through real-time machine learning technology that collects and correlates cyber and physical identity data.

HID recently demonstrated the HID Safe at the AAAE Aviation Security Summit in the Lincoln Ballroom of the Double Tree by Hilton Washington DC - Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia. The summit was presented by the American Association of Airport Executives.
