Identiv Connected Physical Access Manager (ICPAM)

Physical access management application that integrates into the Cisco ecosystem.

Identiv Connected Physical Access Manager (ICPAM) is the management application for physical access that is tightly integrated into industry-leading Cisco technology, including routers, switches, Cisco Video Surveillance Manager, and Cisco IP Telephony. ICPAM is a distributed intelligent premises access control solution, providing state-of-the-art secure access to facilities using standards-based networking, and is backwards compatible for legacy wiring topologies and devices. ICPAM is used to configure Identiv Physical Access Controllers and Readers, monitor activity, enroll users, create identification badges and integrate with security and IT applications and data stores. ICPAM has a low cost of ownership and provides all the functionality of comparable proprietary systems. ICPAM becomes part of an organization's intelligent information network, allowing monitoring and information exchange between devices as an intelligent platform that grows as an organization requires it.

Additional Information
Traditional physical access management requires expensive and proprietary hardware, specialized cabling and a management interface that could only be run locally. In addition, most access control management systems have been focused on just access management, requiring multiple data entries for different systems.

ICPAM is delivered in a kit which includes an ICPAM controller, a uTrust TS reader and access to a virtual appliance of the ICPAM software. Identiv Access Controllers are connected to ICPAM interface through standard network cabling connected to a power over Ethernet switch and becomes part of the IP network. uTrust TS Readers are connected locally to the controller again using standard cabling. With the Controller located on the interior of the premises and the uTrust TS Reader on the exterior, security is maintained. Installation can be done in less time than traditional access control systems and managed over the network.

ICPAM has been built with total security in mind, integrating with other databases, such as Active Directory and other security systems, such as Cisco’s Video Surveillance Manager. To complete the ICPAM kit, Identiv can provide a more secure credential type where the information on the identification card has been cryptographically secured, minimizing the possibility of credential duplication. With ICPAM you now have a way to combine all your physical access systems into a single management system, installed quickly using current infrastructure and providing complete control of access to and within your facilities.

Important Takeaways

  • PROTECT — ICPAM lets you manage a schedule for unlocking building doors and indicate who can enter.
  • DETECT — ICPAM integrates with Cisco Video Surveillance Manager to increase situational awareness by automatically tagging video when someone swipes an access card.
  • RESPOND — ICPAM enables remotely controlled lockdowns to isolate safety incidents.

Features and Benefits

  • Intelligent IP Edge Devices — Allows for superior integration into external systems, thus reducing delays caused by network traffic
  • Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Support — Lowers cost of deployment
  • Superior HA — Allows for master-master high availability, resulting in zero downtime
  • All Communication Is 128 Bit AES Encrypted — Protects credentials and preserves security
  • Device Pre-Provisioning Support — Simplifies installation and lowers provisioning deployment costs
  • Web Services API — Allows integration with external systems, such as PSIM and visitor management systems
