PSIA to Demo Enterprise Security Enhancements to PLAI Spec at ISC West

Two leading physical access control vendors, Johnson Controls and LenelS2, will show their new commercial PLAI specification adapters at the demo.

LAS VEGAS — The Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA) will conduct a demonstration of its PLAI specification during ISC West 2019.

“In past demos we were able to show some exchange of records between PACS [physical access control systems], but this year we will have five vendors, and demonstrate existing employee identity data sets, which can be passed to other systems in the security environment beyond having just a clean start,” says David Bunzel, executive director of the PSIA.

Biometrics, an important component of enterprise physical security systems, will also be featured in the demo. Princeton Identity has previously demonstrated its PLAI adapter, and at ISC West 2019 PSIA will be showing new adapters from EyeLock and IDEMIA.

“Having the ability to transfer employee credential data so that associated biometric identifiers can be constructed and utilized with existing access control systems will be a valuable feature for our customers,” says Consuelo Bangs, senior program manager, IDEMIA Identity & Security USA. “This will save time and money by eliminating redundant record creation.”

Two leading PACS vendors, Johnson Controls and LenelS2, will show their new commercial PLAI adapters at the demo.

“Our enterprise customers have complex environments with high costs for integrations and identity synchronization today, and as a result these customers have been looking for solutions. PLAI provides an effective means to support these industry needs,” says Jason Ouellette, product general manager – access control, Johnson Controls.

One of the critical components is the introduction of an independent commercial PLAI agent by Cruatech of Dublin, Ireland. This agent acts as a central hub to allow interchange between disparate PACS and biometric vendors, according to PSIA.

“The introduction of the Cruatech Agent offers the means to effectively provide solutions to enterprise customers, solving an important problem in the industry — finding a method to have a single trusted source in an enterprise environment,” says Bruno Desrochers of Tech Systems.

The demonstration will be held April 11, 10 a.m., in the Sands Expo Center meeting Room no. 403. For more information or to register, go here.
