AN ADDITIONAL LAYER OF SECURITY FOR SENSITIVE AREAS

Organizations use several physical security controls to protect their outer perimeter (reception, CCTV, badges, turnstiles, etc). But once inside, access badges very often are the only control left. Tailgating, badges being passed on, anonymous badges for contractors and visitors, and even falsified badges pose serious security, compliance or even safety risks. Especially in security sensitive areas you need to be sure that only authorized people are present.

Digital Badgeholder by Ticto

The Ticto Badgeholder introduces a simple yet highly effective new approach called visual authorization. Our technology allows validating authorization in an easy and intuitive way. It leverages your existing access badges but adds an additional layer of security enabling both human and automated validation of authorized presence.

Access badge


  • Tailgating. An intruder follows an authorized person into a different zone without badging in.

  • Expired badges. People see a badge and assume it is valid.

  • Falsified badges. Legacy technologies such as proximity cards are easily copied within seconds.

  • Impossible to know who was present when. Person may badge but not enter. Other person walks in with you but doesn’t badge.

  • Eliminates tailgating

     

  • Expired access is automatically visible to others
     

  • Makes fake badges impossible

     

  • Presence control. Ticto Gateways record actual presence by monitoring who near which Gateway last

 
 
 
Ticto’s innovative use of cryptography to make security visible is truly unique, and is a dramatic improvement over previous authentication and identification technologies.

Applications

 
Office environment kopie.jpg

Office environment

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.

Visitor management

Your organization welcomes visitors on a regular basis. Grab that first chance to make a strong first impression. Handing them a Digital Ticto Badgeholder instead of a simple paper or plastic badge will make a clear statement that your organization takes security seriously. Your hosts can activate the Badgeholder of their visitors and tether them to his/her phone with the Ticto App. When a visitor goes out of range, the host will get a notification and the visitor's Badgeholder will be automatically deactivated.

Research & Development

Research & Development labs form the heart of many organizations. Protecting Intellectual Property (IP) is crucial. While traditional access control provides a base level of security, presence control based on visualizing authorization empowers R&D team members to help protect the organization’s core IP assets in a much more effective way. It eliminates common risks like tailgating or access badges being passed on.

Sensitive manufacturing areas

Many manufacturing processes – regardless whether they are discrete or repetitive – involve large production sites. A myriad of both internal personnel and external parties require access to specific zones within the plant site. How do you ensure granular presence control for sensitive areas without building additional perimeters?

 

Features and benefits

 

Seamless deployment and use

  • Easy integration with your existing open PACS typically requires just a few days.

  • People that require presence in defined sensitive areas slip their existing access badge into a Ticto Badgeholder. The Ticto Badgeholder supports open standards such as Mifare, Mifare Plus and Mifare DESfire EV1 and EV2.

  • Ticto’s solution will instantly be picked up by end users. By simply looking around they can see who belongs and who doesn’t.

Visual display of authorized presence

  • A person authorized to be present in a sensitive area badges at the entrance using existing access control infrastructure.

  • The existing PACS triggers a ‘grant’ event towards Ticto.

  • A Ticto Gateway installed nearby the area entrance enables the right crypto key to be sent to the secure chip in the Ticto Badgeholder. This starts the correct visual sequence.

  • When leaving the sensitive area, the Ticto Gateway detects the person’s exit and stops the visual sequence.

 

Ticto App

The Ticto App further extends the functionality of the badgeholder. This companion app allows employees to flag emergencies, security incidents or suspicious behavior. It also lets security personnel send security push- notifications to employees. Furthermore, the Ticto App allows dynamic biometric authentication before opening doors. It shows the coworkers that are around you, and allows you to tether visitors, thereby enforcing a host/visitor escort policy.

The combination of Ticto Wearables and the Ticto App results in a far better access control experience to both users and security teams, while at the same time improving overall security.

Open, highly secure architecture

  • Cryptographic keys control the unpredictable sequence of colors within an area; colors are always in sync on all Ticto Badgeholders

  • Communications between the Ticto Badgeholder and the Ticto backend infrastructure are encrypted and authenticated in both directions at all times

  • Ticto’s backend software can run as a cloud instance or reside in your data center as an on-premises deployment

Badgeholder charging station

Ticto Badgeholders have a battery life of up to 100 hours of continuous use. A quick and easy way to recharge Badgeholders is by plugging them into a charging Station. You can charge up to 10 Ticto Badgeholders in parallel. You can charge your own Badgeholder via a USB micro-B power adapter as well.

While the Badgeholder is neutral and does not contain any personal information the access & ID badge holds all the credentials often personalized with PII data printed. 

When the access badge slides into the Badgeholder, the internal NFC reader reads a credential from the badge. The badge and Badgeholder merge physically and link logically through backend software. This combined credential now speaks NFC and BLE. It allows for access and presence control.
