SAFE is a new application suite from Quantum Secure, Inc., of San Jose, California, that enables users to centrally define, document, deploy, and enforce physical security policies across multiple sites and systems. The system consists of three core components. The Physical Security Cardholder Identity and Credentials Manager provides a software layer over physical access control systems. The Physical Access Compliance Regulator provides built-in rules and policies to implement internal controls for complying with regulations like Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II, and European Union privacy laws. The Physical Security Events, Alarms, and Incidents Manager tracks and automatically remediates vulnerable conditions before they affect corporate risk. The applications work together to allow users to establish rules and preferences for integrated systems such as access control, visitor management, surveillance and life safety systems, human resources, and information technologies.
