Research labs secured with STid Mobile ID

SMART Access & Identity 2024 Access Control & Identity Management

When NTT opened its research centre in Silicon Valley, it was looking for a high-security expert capable of protecting the company’s sensitive data. NTT Research has three labs: Physics and Computing, Cryptography and Information Security, and Medical and Health Information.

STid, Genetec, Splan, Mobotix Dormakaba and Innovati ensure complete security and interoperability through STid’s multiple interfaces and open communication protocols. STid provides a seamless user experience with a system capable of managing enterprise access control, printing, vending machines, visitor management, lockers, cashless restaurants, time and attendance, OEMs, and more.

After a year of testing, the new laboratories had solutions in place to ensure seamless security when they opened. Several solutions were put in place, including the following:

• QR Code Architect readers: Compatible with RFID, NFC and Bluetooth technologies, they offer a simplified identification of employees and visitors. The QR Code module facilitates the management of temporary accesses (offices, parking lots or other infrastructure).

• STid Mobile ID virtual badges: They transform the smartphone into a mobile access key. The access rights are adapted to the user’s profile: employees, visitors, temporary staff.

This new solution saved NTT approximately $250 000, reducing costs by about 30% compared to estimates from a global competitor. The NTT Sunnyvale implementation is a pilot project that will then be rolled out to Washington, DC, and San Francisco, with global mobility options for easy installations at other NTT locations worldwide.

“Sensitive information in data centres and labs requires user-friendly hands-free access solutions and a seamless level of security. We worked with Splan to provide a robust visitor management platform that allows users to scan a QR code with their smartphone for quick access to buildings and other structures. It is also possible to give temporary access to cleaning crews, visitors and other providers without ever sacrificing security,” says Frederick Trujillo, US Operations Manager, STid.

“Businesses are constantly exposed to intrusion threats that can damage their reputation, result in serious financial consequences, and even invade the privacy of their employees,” noted Alex Valadez from Innovati. “We offer a range of technology solutions to improve and streamline internal processes and ensure corporate well-being and security. We have extensive expertise in helping companies integrate instinctive identification solutions to improve their business. We are working with NTT to provide complete autonomy in security management and increase the overall mobility that NTT needs.”
