Brivo Systems, Timeware Deliver Practical Convergence, IAM

Integrated cloud-based access control, time & attendance services offer SMB market sophisticated roles-based security and business functions

Tying access control to time, attendance and payroll functions probably isn't the first thought you'd associate with identity and access management (IAM). Yet the integration of Brivo Systems' ACS Webservice and Timeware, Inc.'s PrimeTime workforce management tool, announced at the ASIS International Show last week, effectively blurs the lines between security, identity management and business processes. Its focus is the SMB market, in which companies are less likely to have sophisticated IAM systems and user provisioning tools.

The back-end, cloud-based integration of the Brivo and Timeware solutions enables a business to create roles-based access policies based on employee and/or salary categories and business rules (e.g., not eligible for overtime on holidays? You'll be denied physical access that day.)

Further, access system data tied into the time/attendance system verifies hours worked;  verified hours can feed directly into an in-house or outsourced payroll function. Terminating employees in PrimeTime automatically deprovisions them in Brivo's ACS--a core IAM function.

So is it a security, IAM or business process application? Security Squared talked with  Timeware President and CEO Michael Farhat about the value proposition of teaming with Brivo.
