Honeywell Solution Integrates Physical, Logical Access Control
LAS VEGAS — Among the hotbed of activity at Honeywell’s hefty ASIS booth, the company eagerly raised the curtain on SmartPlus™, an IT and security convergence platform engineered to manage and authenticate user credentials within a single solution.
As a modular solution, powered by Novell Identity Manager, SmartPlus expands as the security needs of an organization grow. As members of the Honeywell team explained to SSI, by converging physical security and IT applications, SmartPlus increases security, improves business processes and maximizes workflow efficiencies.
The complete solution is composed of four components: a graphical editor and Web-based interface for real-time data management; a Web-based badging and enrollment application with multiple biometric plug-ins; an element with 300 real-time connectors for seamless communication with third-party applications; and a real-time XML interface between the SmartPlus Identity Manager and Pro-Watch® to ensure data is continuously updated and synchronized across the organization.
“Honeywell’s SmartPlus solution allows our customers to expand their security policies by helping them manage additional facilities, personnel and resources that have not been conducive to access control or facility security in the past,” said Vineet Nargolwala, director of marketing for access systems, Honeywell Systems Group.
