Ticto Badgeholder for Open Offices
- USE CASE -
A financial services organization is leasing an office space in a building where they don’t control the access control system. They were looking for a solution where they have control over the people that enter the offices but without investing in a hard outer perimeter (locks, door controllers and readers). The solution had to be flexible, easy to use and self-manageable.
Since the start of the lease, the company has had a number of cases where people entered the floors without authorization to be there, resulting in a potential security threat.
The financial services organization decided to use Ticto Badgeholders for all employees allowed to work in the leased office space.
They chose for the ‘automatic’ deployment model, whereby the Badgeholder is activated by a gateway when entering the secured space (based on proximity). From then on, the Badgeholder of an authorized user displays a random color in sync with all other Badgeholders authorized for that space. The color changes on all Badgeholders at the exact same time at set intervals. Thanks to the use of cryptography, the next color is truly unpredictable, which makes the solution highly secure. The solution allows anyone to instantly ‘see’ in an intuitive way whether people around them are authorized to be in that space.
solution in numbers
Number of Ticto Badgeholders deployed
All people allowed to work in the secure area received a Ticto Badgeholder. Both activation and deactivation happens automatically based on proximity. The badge holders of authorised users activate once inside, and deactivate as they leave the floor.
Number of secured zones
The Ticto Badgeholders are used to ensure that only authorised persons can enter the leased floor of this financial services organization.
Cost per Badgeholder
In combination with the outer perimeter protection at the entrance of the building, the digital badgeholder delivers a cost effective solution to ensure only authorised persons enter the floor. Investments in door controllers, locks and readers can be avoided.
Time to deploy
Deploying Ticto is extremely simple. One Ticto Gateway connected through PoE at the entrance of the zone you want to protect ; and linking the Ticto Core software up to your PACS. In this case the solution would up and running in 1 day.
Unauthorized persons are instantly visible
Intuitive and flexible way to secure your spaces
Control authorized presence for teams within open space offices, for access to a leased facility where you don’t control the PACS or for temporary space
Can be deployed within days; and quickly moved to other locations as your business moves
Allows combining hard outer perimeter with soft inner security zones
Eliminates the ‘tailgating’ problem
No duplication of data. All users and access rights remain in your existing PACS software, even if there is not PACS infrastructure in the facility you are protecting with Ticto
Ticto Badgeholder is automatically activated when entering the floor and deactivated when leaving
Traditional access control
Investment in PACS infrastructure such as door controllers and door readers in a building not owned by client and a short-term lease.
Does not address known issues like tailgating, expired or falsified badges. People see a badge and assume it is valid.
Impossible to know who was present when. Person may badge but not enter. Other person walks in with you but doesn’t badge.
Changes in the organization come with costly infrastructure changes.
Solution can be deployed quickly with limited infrastructure investment. One Ticto Gateway at each entrance of a zone you want to protect.
Ticto makes tailgating, expired or falsified badges instantly visible to everyone.
Ticto allows for dynamic presence control instead of point-in-time access control. Example: badge holder of visitor automatically expires at visit end time.
Zones can be stood up, changed or removed on the fly as your organization changes or moves to other facilities.
