Lenel and AlertEnterprise formed an alliance to resell AlertEnterprise’s physical identity and access management (PIAM) software to support an advanced PIAM and compliance solution. Lenel is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.

The AlertEnterprise suite of security convergence software delivers a comprehensive IT, operational technology and physical security solution. Its certified interface to the OnGuard system will offer predictive risk analytics, compliance and advanced insider threat management capabilities.

“Leveraging the new interface between the OnGuard system and AlertEnterprise’s Guardian software, customers can now manage identities for employees, contractors, vendors and visitors across multiple systems such as HR, IT, Security and SCADA — helping to ensure policy enforcement, continuity and more,” said Ron Virden, managing director, electronic access solutions, Lenel.

According to Jasvir Gill, founder and CEO of AlertEnterprise, “Another unique dimension of our solution is that it offers enhanced mechanisms to help thwart unauthorized access; for example, it will alert on unauthorized configuration changes to an access control server designed to protect against validation of fake badges.”

AlertEnterprise has PIAM, physical security information management (PSIM) and compliance validation solutions that complement OnGuard’s enterprise security management platform.

“Lenel and AlertEnterprise share the same view that enterprise solutions should be out-of-the-box and highly configurable, rather than require custom development with expensive deployment and ongoing maintenance,” Virden said. “We look forward to working together with AlertEnterprise on future solutions that deliver added value to our mutual customers.”
