MILWAUKEE – (March 3, 2020) – Johnson Controls has released Tyco Software House C•CURE Visit Verified Identity solution using Civic Secure Identity technology, improving the visitor management process and eliminating the risks and overhead associated with collecting and storing visitor data on site.
“The legal burden on organizations in terms of collecting and storing personal information, even for visitor management purposes, has never been greater,” said Ashley Tousignant, senior product manager, Access Control, Johnson Controls. “C•CURE Visit Verified Identity using Civic removes the need for companies to handle this potentially sensitive information and leaves the control over the information in the hands of the individual.”
Currently, many facilities require visitors to provide a valid form of identification – leaving personal information vulnerable to identity theft. C•CURE Visit Verified Identity using Civic leverages blockchain and digital identity wallet technology to provide identity verification and protection for visitors, and eliminating the need to store visitors’ personally identifiable information (PII) onsite.
“The next wave of access management security technology has arrived. Building visitors can now use their phone for functions their physical wallet has performed in the past,” said Vinny Lingham, co-founder and CEO of Civic. “With advanced identity verification, more secure architecture and a simplified user experience, the access experience has never been safer or more convenient both for visitors and management.”
Within the C•CURE Visitor Management portal, a host can create an appointment and pre-register a visitor. The visitor receives the visit appointment email with instructions and a link to pre-verify their identity via email or phone, or using government issued identity documents prior to the visit, using the self-service Civic mobile app. Upon arrival, the visitor will scan a QR code to gain access and the host will be notified of their arrival. Users will be able to leverage this solution at staffed and unstaffed locations using self-service kiosks.
Visitors will be able to opt in to verify information, and then securely share only specific details with an identity requester. Users’ personal information is stored within the Civic app on mobile devices. Visitors will no longer have to hand over their personal documents and run the risk of them getting into the wrong hands.
