As organizations grow, facility managers face the daunting task of managing multiple facilities and IT systems. Traditionally, facility management personnel used separate credentials to manage physical and logical access, leading to a fragmented approach to enterprise identity and access management. Traditional physical access credentials like plastic ID badges, passwords, and hardware tokens are cumbersome to issue, manage, and revoke. Their continued use results in the increased risk of security breaches and unauthorized facility access.
Usher enables organizations to seamlessly control employee access to warehouses, factories, offices, and other enterprise facilities via centrally-managed digital identity badges. With Usher, users can open doors and other physical entryways via Bluetooth proximity, or by tapping a digital key on their smartphone. Usher provides organizations with highly configurable multi-factor authentication that includes support for push notifications, biometrics, one-time passcodes, face-toface validation, as well as time- and geofencing. The Usher platform is compatible with many existing physical access control systems and can be integrated into existing enterprise mobile applications using APIs.
