HID Global Wins Industry Award in Best Big Data Security Analysis Category for HID SAFE™ Analytics Solution

AUSTIN, Texas, September 27, 2018 – HID Global®, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced that its HID SAFE™ Analytics solution has been recognized by Security Today magazine as the year’s most noteworthy new product for Big Data Security Analysis in 2018.  Separating it from other solutions was its ability to predict and prevent possible security threats based on a risk-based analysis of data that the solution consolidates from multiple physical access device and system logs.

“We are excited to receive this award for a solution that takes customers beyond a purely reactive security stance to one where they can identify and prevent breaches before they occur,” said Julian Lovelock, Vice President, Identity & Access Management Solutions (IAMS) with HID Global. “The critical knowledge and actionable insights our solution delivers give organizations high-value tools for averting security issues.”

The HID SAFE Analytics solution extends the power of an organization’s physical security data beyond traditional reporting to include predictive analytics for assessing risks associated with identities in the system.  Insights derived from these analytics, called Indicators of Compromise, include Expert Indicators, such as tailgating and badge fishing, and Behavioral Indicators, such as erratic movement and unusual timing. Each Indicator of Compromise is given a risk score and HID SAFE Analytics also recommends mitigation responses.
