A new physical security standard.
Introducing Ticto - visual security wearables.
Introducing Ticto - visual security wearables.
Organizations around the world use static badges to identify employees, contractors and visitors, and to manage access to their facilities. Unfortunately using just badges comes with significant and real security threats. Everyone is familiar with tailgating, badges being passed on, anonymous badges used for contractors and visitors, or even falsified badges.
At Ticto, we developed an additional layer of security that takes those threats away. Aimed at security sensitive areas within your organization; our state-of-the-art visual security wearables allow you to instantly 'see' if people are authorized to be in the area they are in.
When walking into a security sensitive area, a Ticto wearable of an authorized user automatically is being picked up and activated if the user is authorized. Once activated, the Ticto wearable starts showing a Tictogram – an unpredictable and changing visual sequence of colors, synchronous with other legitimate Ticto wearables.
With Ticto you make a clear statement that your organization takes security seriously. Customers, employees, executive management, business partners, contractors and visitors all literally ‘see’ that being present in security sensitive areas of your organization or at your event is only possible for authorized people. There is no better way to create instant security awareness.
Provide your employees, visitors and contractors with an environment that they can verify is safe and secure. At a glance they can see that everybody around them can be trusted. Build trust. Make security visible.
Activating the Ticto wearable can be made dependent on a broad range of criteria. These include presence rights but also compliance with applicable rules such as safety, security, qualifications, credentials, background checks, working hours, contractual obligations and more. Ticto visually demonstrates attribute-based compliance at all times with a clear audit trial.
Access control solutions help to protect your perimeter. But because of tailgating, badges being passed on or even being falsified, you cannot be sure that people are correctly authorized. You also do not know who really is present. With Ticto you focus on controlling authorized presence rather than just control who can open which door.
The Ticto Badgeholder provides an additional layer of security on top of your existing access badges. The Ticto system has been designed as an open system that can easily be integrated with existing Physical Access Control Systems (PACS). Our technology allows validating authorization in an easy and intuitive way. It makes tailgating a thing of the past.
Ticto developed a digital version of the color-of-the-day lapel pin. Ticto Pins provide an innovative solution that addresses the major shortcomings of the traditional lapel pins. When activated a Ticto Pin emits a random color in sync with all other Ticto Pins authorized for that zone. The color will change on all pins at the exact same time at set intervals – for example every 5 minutes.
The color on the Ticto wearable changes in an unpredictable manner thanks to the use of a cryptographic algorithm. This algorithm is contained within the Secure Element of the Ticto wearable. The use of cryptography prevents anyone who does not have a valid Ticto wearable from displaying the same visual sequence.
The intuitive Ticto App can be used to activate and deactivate your Ticto wearable for different locations and zones you are authorized for. Several exciting new features will be added in the near future. The Ticto App is meant especially for events or use of Ticto wearables at remote sites. For office type environments Ticto offers a fixed gateway solution to activate and deactivate its wearables.
The Ticto Dashboard allows managing Ticto wearables, Ticto users, managing locations and zones, managing authorization rules, managing configuration settings, and more. A documented API allows integrating with existing systems and repositories like Active Directory servers, Physical Access Control Systems (PACS), Visitor Management platforms and Identity and Access Management systems.
Office environments become open space areas where employees can freely move around to collaborate and exchange ideas. Yet you want to be able to restrict presence in some areas to a subset of your people, or make presence rights conditional based on time of the day, being accompanied by a specific person, etc. Ticto wearables allow shifting from traditional access control - based on opening doors - to flexible presence control.
As a security services company you protect executives and VIPs, and take care of securing large-scale events. Your non uniformed agents use traditional color of the day lapel pins to instantly recognize their trusted peers. Discover the many benefits of the Ticto Pin, the digital version of what you are using today. Impossible to falsify, identity authorized colleagues also when it dark and from a farther distance, remotely see which agents have an active pin, etc.
Your organization welcomes visitors on a daily basis. Grab that first chance to make a strong first impression. Handing them a Ticto wearable instead of a simple paper or plastic badge will make a clear statement that your organization takes security seriously. Your hosts can activate the wearables of their visitors and optionally can enable a feature that continuously tracks whether the visitors remain close to their hosts.
