Identita, The Powered Card provider of cross platform access, authorization and identity management solutions, was selected by one of the largest national airline carriers in the Middle East for the installation and management of one of the largest converged logical-physical identity and access management installations in the world.
Respecting the customer's request for privacy and security, Identita will not release any customer details.
“We were confident that our ‘one card' concept would win over all the shareholders in the project,” said Identita CEO Rocky Stefano.
Converged IAM creates one identity assigned to one credential that encompasses all of an identity's logical and physical access privileges. When one set of privileges changes, whether physical or logical, that alteration triggers automatic, complementary revisions in the other set.
Convergence of physical and logical identities is a nascent, but logical and likely outcome of the implementation of identity and access management systems. A sensible reason for converging identities is that when disconnected logical and physical identities proliferate, it's time-consuming, expensive and inefficient to manage them. That's true for IT, for physical security, for risk managers and business units.
