Lenel and AlertEnterprise entered into a partnership that will undertake to resell AlertEnterprise's Physical Identity and Access Management (PIAM) software. Lenel is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, which is a unit of diversified conglomerate United Technologies CorporationUTX .

The software will provide support to an advanced PIAM and compliance solution. AlertEnterprise's portfolio of security convergence software offers one of the most comprehensive IT, OT (operational technology) and physical security solutions in the market. Its certified interface to the OnGuard system will enable predictive risk analytics, compliance and sophisticated insider threat management facilities.

There is great customer demand to broaden OnGuard's capabilities into new paths, and this partnership will give them the chance to buy an advanced PIAM solution. Customers can now capitalize on the new interface between the OnGuard system and AlertEnterprise's Guardian software, which will allow clients to manage identities for contractors, employees, vendors and visitors across multiple systems such as IT, HR, Security and SCADA. This will facilitate policy enforcement, continuity and more.

With IT-Physical-OT Security Convergence, AlertEnterprise is modifying the face of security, especially for large operational environments. This partnership will leverage its capabilities and provide Fortune 500 and Global 1000 customers access to comprehensive solutions for both corporate and critical infrastructure protection.

Also, the solution comes with another element - it offers distinctive superior mechanisms to help prevent unauthorized access. For example, it will put out alerts on unauthorized configuration changes to an access control server, thus protecting against validation of fake badges.
