Digital access control system
Smart access control through real world identification
When is an access management system needed?
A secure and convenient access control system is needed where access is restricted in the real world. This includes access to company buildings, for example. This can also include access to events such as trade fairs or sporting events, to the open-air swimming pool or leisure park. With modern technologies such as Geofencing, NFC, Bluetooth, etc., cidaas enables you to implement smart access control and modern ticketing.
ADVANTAGES & BENEFITS
Digital access control system
Recognition along the entire user journey
The core element within the digitalization strategy is to recognise the user along the entire journey using an identity. If the user already comes from the digital world, you have the advantage of being able to continue to address him or her and retain his or her loyalty. It is equally important that if you get to know the user in the real world, you will continue to know him/her afterwards. Only as soon as you offer them a reason, i.e. added value, such as through the digital access control system, will you simply get to know them digitally. This allows you to address them in a context-related manner and offer them new added value. The blog article Corner Store 2.0. shows how Real World Identification in retail can look like.

This enables you to achieve a personalized approach through all your channels, more convenience and more security.
Convenient authentication and smart access control
Modern localization technologies such as Geofencing, NFC (Near Field Communication) or Bluetooth enable you to recognize your users in the real world. Such technologies are already offered by most mobile devices like smartphones or wearables. These end devices, but also biometric methods, allow a comfortable Real-World Identification. As soon as the user is identified, it is checked whether he or she has the necessary access rights. If not, cidaas allows you to manage and add the rights and keep them up to date.
Coupled with the IoT device management integrated in cidaas, the entrances and admissions can be controlled.
Secure access through mfa, fraud detection and much more
By identifying, authenticating and authorizing the user with one identity across all channels, the integrated fraud detection can actively detect and report suspicious cases and, if necessary, trigger multi-factor authentication with cidaas’ convenient authentication methods. This gives you more security with excellent user comfort.
Proactive reporting and logging
The Event-Driven Architecture from cidaas enables detailed logging of access, authentication and much more. This is especially important about security and subsequent control. Furthermore, webhooks can be used to proactively inform other systems or persons about events such as new registrations or suspicious behaviour.
