Under a strategic partnership, Codebench Inc. and Brivo Systems are integrating its products to create a HSPD-12-compliant Web-connected access control system they say will be an industry first, Codebench announces.
Codebench’s PIVCheck software suite, an end-to-end card validation, authentication and registration solution for the federal government’s HSPD-12 compliance, now integrates with Brivo Systems’ standalone access control systems, OnSite SE and XE.
Pairing the PIVCheck solution with Brivo’s access control appliances will save customers time in the card registration process and provide the capability to validate card-holder credentials on a real-time and ongoing basis as required by FIPS-201.
“Our technology partnership with Brivo Systems is unique because it’s the first with a Web-connected access control system solutions provider,” says Geri Castaldo, Codebench CEO. “By working together, we’re able to ensure that clients can access the PIVCheck software suite without disrupting or voiding the warranty on their Brivo Systems solution. For Codebench, this also enables us to further our penetration into the federal government, utility, airport and property management markets.”
This integration supports homeland security initiatives through better screening and management of individuals seeking physical access to federally-controlled government facilities.
Brivo Systems also announced it would serve as a reseller of Codebench’s PIVCheck software suite.
“Codebench has demonstrated a sophisticated understanding of customer requirements in the government market and has built innovative products to meet those needs,” says John Szczygiel, executive vice president at Brivo. “We are pleased to partner with Codebench to provide this capability for our array of government and private sector clients who must meet federal regulations for personnel identity verification.”
The PIVCheck software suite provides a transition to HSPD-12 or FIPS-201 compliance by leveraging a facility’s physical access control system for card validation, authentication and registration.
The software uses three-factor identification to determine the cardholder’s unique identifying data and biometric information, and verifies the validity of the card by checking with the appropriate X.509 certification authority or other entity, such as the TSA hot list.
