Cipherise can be used to control access to physical infrastructure and premises using the common authentication experience contained within the Cipherise Mobile App. Using a trigger such as a QR code scan, an NFC read, or even proximity to a beacon, access can be granted based upon defined business rules and access roles.
In such scenarios, Cipherise exists alongside exiting Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) and typically replaces access triggers based upon keypads, or NFC / Magnetic cards. In either case, Cipherise adds multi-factor controls to an access decision, and provides 100% attribution to anyone gaining access.
Use cases are many and varied, ranging from simple door control, to certifiable machine access, multi-party approval for controlled spaces, and access permissions based upon geo-fences, time of day, and specific network conditions.
Biometrics, such as fingerprint or retina scans, are most useful as a factor within a multifactor process. Cipherise utilises biometrics for a higher level of security when using the application.
