Civilian Department: Enterprise Physical Access Control System (ePACS) Implementation

Electrosoft designed and implemented the ePACS solution to present a common workflow for access provisioning/de-provisioning for all of the Department’s physical facilities regardless of the specific vendor PACS installed locally.

PROBLEM

The Department was looking for an innovative Enterprise Physical Access Control System (ePACS) solution that makes it possible to centrally manage, control and view access to the Department’s myriad facilities (across the Nation) to authorized staff who possess Department-issued PIV (smart) cards. A special challenge was the fact that the Department utilizes a wide variety of PACS systems from multiple vendors – the interfaces and functionality of these systems are proprietary to each vendor.  

SOLUTION

Electrosoft provided systems engineering, architecture, development, deployment, testing, operations & maintenance and training services necessary to implement a COTS-based, ePACS solution that integrates with local building access control units from multiple vendors.  This solution is scalable to supporting the more than 6,000 facilities of the Department with an easy-to-use dashboard, which provides drill-down visibility, management control and reporting of situational awareness of facility access.

RESULTS/BENEFITS

Electrosoft designed and implemented the ePACS solution to present a common workflow for access provisioning/de-provisioning for all of the Department’s physical facilities regardless of the specific vendor PACS installed locally; automation of many workflow steps leading to more efficient (and less error-prone) processing of access while significantly lowering costs; a role-based privilege model that allows local facility managers to control access to their facility; and strong auditing and reporting functions that enables early detection and management of risky access patterns.
