The Vector Flow Physical Workforce Identity system incorporates a unique, automated rapid configuration function that is based upon data-driven AI algorithms. This intelligent software analyses your existing systems and data and continually audits them to discover business processes and rules and continues to improve them over time.

The AI-driven configuration and rules engine built into the Vector Flow Physical Workforce Identity system learns and adapts to your organizational changes to keep your access policies up to date – automatically!

Vector Flow Physical Workforce Identity employs intelligent algorithms to monitor, analyze and place rules and limitations on access, including:

Who has access to restricted areas

What they have access to

Where they have access at various locations

When and how long they require access

Why they have access based on title and seniority

This helps to streamline on-boarding and offboarding processes while unifying identities and access credentials across multiple facilities and locations.

Additional benefits of Vector Flow Physical Workforce Identity include:

  • Perpetual audits for improved security
  • Mobile capabilities and experience to employees and partners
  • Automation of access provisioning
  • Self-service and unification of access policies
  • AI / machine learning based recommendations
  • Personal privacy compliance including right to be forgotten and informed

Built into the Vector Flow Physical Workforce Identity system, intelligent data-driven AI algorithms provides real-time recommendations to end-users for tasks such as:

  • New hire access assignment
  • Request for access
  • Approval for requested access
  • Termination of access
  • Access audits and compliance to regulations

Within the Vector Flow Physical Workforce Identity system, an AI-based Identity risk engine runs continuously in the background to detect access anomalies, too many unused access profiles, ghost accounts, terminated identities still active, compliance to regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, and HIPAA, risky cardholder behavior, and more. Continuous enforcement of security policies and physical access privileges improve overall organizational safety and security – automatically!

The Vector Flow Physical Workforce Identity system include simple-to-use design tools for end users to add, change, and modify their user interface, workflows, and rules without programming.

Applications in the Physical Workforce Identity Suite

Each of the four primary applications in the Physical Workforce Identity Suite supports powerful business objectives, improving physical security systems and operations to reduce risk and deliver faster, better outcomes. The Vector Flow Physical Workforce Identity Suite is comprised of four primary enterprise software applications:

Intelligently Grant Right Physical Access

Physical Identity and Access Manager (PIAM)

This AI-driven application uses intelligent algorithms to streamline and automate workforce identity on/off boarding processes including their physical access provisioning in appropriate physical access control systems. This application ensures right access is given to the right identity at all times by applying roles and approval rules logic. It eliminates many of the risks involved with granting unfettered 24/7 access. Working in tandem with HR systems, PIAM creates a system of record for all enterprise identities and related physical access within physical security. Employees, contractors, traveling salespeople, and visitors can all be handled appropriately, and the system ensures that applicable policies are consistently and accurately enforced.

Always ON Security & Audits

Compliance & Audit Manager (CAM)

Staying compliant with physical access audits requires a lot of effort. Frequent changes including people changing jobs or being promoted, changes in reporting structure, working on special projects, and joining, vacationing, or leaving the organization, among others, often creates an audit headache.

The Vector Flow Intelligent Compliance and Audit Manager automates all tasks that enforce and prove compliance to keep your organization “audit ready.” Reports related to monthly, quarterly and annual area owner and manager access audits and validations are always ready for the defined period. Recommendation Engine reduces the audit burden on managers by making it very easy to review and certify access by person and by area. Vector Flow expedites compliance with internal controls as well as global government regulations including: CCPA, FISMA, GDPR, HIPAA, SOX, SOC 2 Audit, and more.

Enable Employees with Instant Self-service

Self-Service Access Manager (SAM)

This application empowers users to request or approve / grant physical access to any corporate door resources at anytime, anywhere. SAM provides identity insights and risks so that approver could make an informed decision before granting physical access. The intelligent in-built AI based recommendation engine calculates this in real-time and prompts the approver to take quick decisions. SAM can speed up the whole process of access request, assignments and revocation using your desktop or phone at your convenience including ability to delegate tasks to someone else in the organization. SAM reduces customer service costs and boosts productivity.

View Insider Threats and Take Appropriate Action

ID Risk Dashboard

90% of insider threats go undetected – often for months or years. Physical Security operations teams find it very challenging to monitor insider threat activity such as suspicious behavior, card sharing/cloning, impossible travel, tailgating, access outliers, etc. While organizations want to proactively identify insider threats, knowing what and where to look for across the vast amount of data is a challenge. Vector Flow ID Risk Dashboard leverages experience from security practitioners, investigators, and 3,000+ real cases of insider threats. Next, we applied deep learning techniques to eliminate the need to create complex correlation rules – so you simply view insider threats across your physical security infrastructure, automate responses including real-time information sharing with Cybersecurity teams.

Vector Flow ID Risk Dashboard promotes good decision making for the entire security organization. It accomplishes this by simplifying details, listing key risk indicators with simple visuals to communicate the most essential ID risk profiles, highlighting which controls are working and which are redundant. An executive of Vector Flow dashboard explained the advantages of the Vector Flow ID Risk dashboard:

“Before we had the Vector Flow ID Risk dashboard, everything was important, and we tried to protect all assets with middle-of-the-road controls. As a result, we were spread too thin in some critical areas, such as data centers, executive protection, etc. At the same time, we were going overboard with cumbersome security controls in other, less critical areas. ID Risk dashboard helped us focus our efforts and our investments. It helped us pick our battles, in line with our company’s risk appetite. As a result, we are now better protected than before, while our operations run much more smoothly.”

Emergency / Pandemic Access Management

Emergency Access Manager (EAM)

In case of an emergency, whether it’s a COVID-19 or similar other outbreak, political unrest, or an active shooter incident, your office access control and the door behavior must be managed intelligently and immediately.

AI-based intelligent policies adapt and control the situation autonomously so that manual enforcement of policies and other error-prone tasks are eliminated. Policies can automatically trigger to reduce occupancy capacity of one or more facilities if needed based upon the guidelines or allow access to specific muster areas or protected locations. Contact tracing is also supported in case of an epidemic such as COVID-19. All of these automated actions reduce the burdens on security and HR staff during an emergency while providing a consistent and trackable methodology to gain facility access.

Emergency preparedness is more than manageable and compliant when you have the right systems. Vector Flow provides out-of-box reporting for California Senate Bill (“SB”) 1159 and Assembly Bill (“AB”) 685. SB 1159 requires employers to report positive COVID-19 tests to their workers’ compensation claim administrator. AB 685 requires employers to provide notice and report information related to COVID-19 exposures and provides the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (“Cal/OSHA”) expanded authority to enforce such requirements and ensure safe workplace operations. Vector Flow helps employers stay compliant with reporting requirements, within the stated periods and maintain compliance records as required by law.
