SFO Airport Uses New Applications from Quantum Secure

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has implemented Quantum (News - Alert) Secure’s SAFE for Aviation solution in order to provide critical security within the Airport. This step proves Quantum Secure’s commitment in expanding footprint in upgrading, managing and automating key critical security areas within the Airport.

With deployment of the SAFE Airport Identity & Credential Management System in 2010, SFO has simplified the management of their entire badging process by automating manual processes related to background checks, access credential issuance, physical access privilege assignment/termination and management of TSA-mandated audit and compliance regulations.

Ajay Jain, President and CEO of Quantum Secure said in a statement,“SAFE for Aviation Suite is the ideal solution for airports of all sizes looking to streamline their security and credentialing operations, ensure compliance with the latest TSA regulations, and future-proof their physical security infrastructure – all while realizing incredible cost reductions.”

SAFE module includes Privilege Management Application that allows users to define credential types and associate these credentials with necessary Privileges & Security checks needs. It also includes Financial Management Application that enables the airport to manage the financial related transactions for contractors, third parties and other operators. SAFE module includes Aviation Mobile Infraction Management that offers complete capability to the user to perform tasks and take actions on their smartphones and tablets. It includes Aviation Visitor Management to manage the complete lifecycle of the visitors, including creation of an audit trail of visits and visitors checking in and fingerprinting schedule management for authorized signatories.

SAFE for Aviation can work with pre-defined policies, workflows and procedures for issuing badge credentials and granting/revoking access to airport facilities. It simplifies adherence to TSA and FAA regulations, audits and security directives, minimizing insider threats and promoting greater operational security. It automates processes for conducting background checks for new airport workers and getting security clearances.
