Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport launched Quantum Secure’s SAFE for Aviation software to provide a new approach to the processes surrounding vetting and badging airport workers.
Phoenix Sky Harbor wanted to eliminate paper-based processes and use technology to streamline the management of the more than 20,000 worker identities at their airport. By implementing SAFE for Aviation at the airport, Phoenix Sky Harbor has met their goals of maintaining a security credential management solution to function as a security portal, eliminating inefficiencies and reducing the time it takes get airport staff on the job.
With more than 100,000 passengers per day, Phoenix Sky Harbor is one of the busiest airports in the United States. With the anticipated growth of the airport and the industry in general, Phoenix Sky Harbor is trying to take a modern approach to preparing for the coming years through modernization and implementation of the latest technology to manage various aspects of the airport. This translates to more jobs at the airport and more importance on securely vetting those workers without significant operational cost increases.
Partnering with Honeywell International, Quantum Secure delivered the SAFE for Aviation software solution that enabled Phoenix Sky Harbor to leverage their existing infrastructure investments and provide a future proof environment that can continue to adapt to the inevitable change inherent in this industry. The phased deployment was carried out over the course of a year and has been in production since Fall 2013.
