Electrosoft designed, configured and implemented an enterprise-level VMS that interfaces with a variety of facility access control solutions installed within the Department.
To align with the Federal mandates related to strong identity authentication and stricter access control to Federal facilities, the Department was seeking a COTS-based solution for a fully automated turn-key Visitor Management System (VMS) for identifying, authenticating, provisioning and managing smartcard-based visitor access to the Department’s myriad facilities.
Electrosoft designed, configured and implemented an enterprise-level VMS that interfaces with a variety of facility access control solutions installed within the Department. The VMS was designed to meet the requirements of the FICAM Roadmap and Implementation Guidance and enables visitors with FIPS 201 compliant smartcard credentials to request approval through an online portal for upcoming visits to department facilities, and if approved, to have their access pre-provisioned in the local facility access control system. The solution meets the requirements of the FICAM Roadmap and Implementation Guidance and uses standards-based protocols and interfaces to manage and report on building access requests and visits by federal personnel, contractors and visitors.
The VMS solution dramatically streamlines visitor access to the Department’s facilities while improving security through stronger authentication and authorization of visitors. The solution has the potential to significantly lower costs for physical security management through improved automation. The solution also serves as a pilot for the realization of the Department’s long-term vision to become a shared service provider of VMS services throughout the Federal government.
