AlertEnterprise, Inc., the physical identity access management and security convergence software firm, announced a partnership with WaveLynx, a secure and interoperable access control solutions firm, offering employee badge in Apple Wallet on iPhone and Apple Watch.
What is the market offering of the employee badge?
The new AE Wallet app integrated with the AlertEnterprise Guardian platform, empowers security teams with end-to-end automation of the entire NFC Wallet mobile credential lifecycle, delivering unmatched governance and a convenient workforce access experience.
Compatible with the WaveLynx multi-tech reader portfolio, the new partnership enables customers to migrate their access technology at the pace that is right for their business.
With employee badge in Apple Wallet, users will be able to simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch to a WaveLynx reader to perform tasks from unlocking office doors and securely printing documents to accessing vending machines and much more – eliminating the added step of opening an app or fumbling to find their physical employee badge.
With Express Mode, users do not need to unlock or even wake up their device to use the badge — they hold their device to a reader. If an iPhone needs to be charged, users can use their device to access their office or amenity areas for up to 5 hours with Power Reserve.
What does this mean for AlertEnterprise and WaveLynx?
AlertEnterprise COO, Ruby Deol says beyond security and user experience, NFC Wallet mobile credentials can have a positive impact on an organization’s ESG initiatives, “Converting to NFC Wallet mobile credentials can significantly reduce an organization’s plastic waste, minimizing the carbon footprint associated with printing and distributing physical badges.”
“That’s a huge win for our customer’s ESG programs. And then you add being more convenient, secure, and cost-effective, that’s security as real business enabler.”
“WaveLynx and AlertEnterprise together present end users a real world solution to an extremely complex problem of identity and access control credentials. Together we solve the problem of validating the identity of an individual in access control instantly, every time they present their employee badge in Apple Wallet. This ensures security and governmental compliance all while enabling seamless access,” said Rob Lydic, President, WaveLynx.
