HAWTHORNE, Calif. — AMAG Technology announced Symmetry Mobile, a web credential application designed to be used with AMAG’s Symmetry Bluetooth readers. Symmetry Mobile supports COVID-19 and return to work guidelines by promoting physical distancing and frictionless setup.
The Symmetry Mobile credential management platform delivers a cost-effective and convenient solution for organizations using mobile devices to gain access to secured doors. Frictionless setup of a credential eliminates the need to physically interact with the security team or visit a badging office. The Mobile Credential Portal allows central management of the credentials, photos, and devices remotely. Symmetry Mobile and the Symmetry Blue Bluetooth reader integrate with Symmetry Access Control and other access control systems, making it an ideal solution for enterprise users deploying more than one system.
“As organizations return to work and need to support COVID-19 guidelines, Symmetry Mobile will provide a touchless solution that supports multifactor authentication,” said Jonathan Moore, product director, AMAG. “Organizations can centrally issue and manage mobile credentials to their entire user base from a remote location, eliminating the need to buy and carry a physical credential and come into the badge office. This supports physical distancing and helps keep employees safe.”
Together, Symmetry Mobile and the Symmetry Blue Bluetooth reader provide a convenient mobile credential management solution, capable of integrating with AMAG’s Symmetry Access Control and other access control systems. Enterprise users deploying more than one system will find the solution seamless, efficient, and cost-effective.
Users can have an unlimited number of credentials stored within their digital wallet, allowing people who need to access multiple sites using different access control systems to use the same mobile device.
For added security, Symmetry Mobile supports multifactor authentication when used with a PIN or biometric (fingerprint, facial recognition) on both Android and Apple iOS devices. Users can type their PIN or use a biometric on their phone, eliminating the need to touch the reader and in support of COVID-19 guidelines.
