Honeywell Teams with Imprivita to Provide Physical/IT Integration
Honeywell is collaborating with Imprivata to offer a complete solution that integrates physical and IT access control to provide greater enterprise security and policy management. The solution combines Honeywell’s Pro-Watch physical access control system with Imprivata’s OneSign Physical/Logical location-based authentication solution.
The combined solution will enable organizations to grant or restrict access to physical locations, IT networks and applications based on an individual’s credentials. The integration of Pro-Watch and OneSign Physical/Logical is easy to deploy and use, and allows security managers to leverage the proven Pro-Watch physical security platform to improve IT security and increase the value of existing Pro-Watch system investments.
“The integration of Pro-Watch and OneSign Physical/Logical lets customers extract greater value from their existing keycard and door readers,” said John Lorenty, president, Honeywell Systems Group.
Pro-Watch is Honeywell’s complete security management platform that integrates access control, intrusion, video surveillance and CCTV into a single system. OneSign Physical/Logical is a component of Imprivata’s OneSign identity and access management platform, which seamlessly integrates single sign-on, user provisioning, physical access control and event reporting to provide one automated employee information access policy managed and enforced within a single administrative framework.
“Until now, physical and logical security systems have existed in separate technology silos. The integration of Pro-Watch and OneSign Physical/Logical facilitates coordinated communication between the two systems to achieve a stronger and more compliant security solution,” said Omar Hussain, president and CEO, Imprivata.
The combined solution is available today through the Honeywell dealer channel. Honeywell will demonstrate the integrated Pro-Watch - OneSign Physical/Logical convergence solution at ASIS International 2007, booth 2313, later this month. For more information, visit www.honeywellintegrated.com.
