ICT Mobile Credentials

The future of access control

ICT Mobile Credentials

The future of access control

Mobile credentials are a growing trend for access control and building security. As more people become aware of the benefits, such as the convenience of having your keys already stored in your phone and the higher security, the trend is only increasing.

This is supported by the fact that ICT has seen adoption rates of mobile credentials increase 10x in the last two years, with 80% of American universities and colleges already using them or planning on implementing them.

Let’s explore some of the benefits:

Smart

Smart

Mobile credentials provide a simple, more cost-effective approach to managing access credentials, and eliminates the time and effort involved with handling, printing, distributing and disposing of physical access cards. Ordering, issuing, and management of credentials is all done online, with the credential emailed directly to the end user’s mobile device.

Secure

Secure

Credentials are stored securely on the mobile device, with access authenticated using a secure cloud based server and 256-bit encryption. Given that most people carry their smartphone everywhere, just as they do their car-keys and wallet, mobile credentials are much less likely to be lost or misplaced. They are also usually protected with a passcode or biometric security.

Convenient

Convenient

Compared to traditional cards and tags, mobile credentials offer a more convenient end user experience by enabling a smartphone or other mobile device to securely unlock doors and enter buildings. With most (if not all) people carrying a smartphone with them every day, it eliminates the need for physical cards, meaning lost and forgotten cards become a thing of the past.

Mobile Credential Portal

Managing mobile credentials is easily done with ICT’s Mobile Credential Portal.

Effortlessly assign credentials - all you need is an email address. This will prompt the user to install the ICT Protege Mobile app, which is where they access the credential from then on.

Revoking credentials from the portal quickly and simply. If a user leaves the business, all you need to do is click on the credential and select revoke.
