Genetec unveils new airport badging solution

Genetec, a leading technology provider of security, intelligence, and operations, has announced its new Genetec Security Centre Airport Badging Solution (ABS) to automate and simplify the process of issuing and administering badges.

The Security Centre Airport Badging Solution provides an industry-first: a simple, out-of-the-box solution for airports that ensures compliance, simplifies the badging process, and lowers the overhead needed to run a badging department. ABS reduces the need to work with multiple different systems and reduces incompatibility issues. This not only minimizes the risk of potential human error that comes with disparate systems and manual processing, but also saving time and increasing efficiency.

“To manage their badging process and employee background checks, some airports have until now had to resort to a variety of single-purpose systems, while others have opted for complex Identity Management System (IDMS) that tend to be better suited for larger airports,” explained David Lenot, Critical Infrastructure Practice Lead at Genetec.

“While both options allow airports to remain compliant with regulations, these solutions present operational inefficiencies. ABS helps reduce human error that can stem from managing multiple disconnected systems and avoids the complexities of large-scale Identity Management Systems.”

ABS streamlines and automates background checks within an airport’s unified physical security platform – Genetec Security Centre.

With a design based on standards set forth by each country’s regulatory bodies and specificities from security background vetting services and clearinghouses, Security Centre ABS helps airports deliver the required information in the correct format to successfully submit and process each employee application, and consistently meet audit and compliance requirements set by authorities such as regular identity verifications via the Rapback process.

All data collected on each badge applicant is compiled and stored within the system. Customized dashboards are included within Security Centre to showcase insights such as real time applicant statuses, and unaccounted for badge percentages so that airport administrators can make more informed decisions, especially when it comes to meeting audit and compliance regulations.
