|Both the companies share a similar vision of making secure identity solutions more accessible
Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, a leading global provider of security and safety solutions and manufacturer of Schlage contactless smart credentials and readers, and idOnDemand, pioneers in smart identification, are partnering to offer a joint solution that consolidates a user's identity across the enterprise. This solution provides customers with the ability to migrate to credentials that can satisfy both physical access control (building) and logical access control (computer network), through a cloud based model, using a single, multi-purpose corporate badge.
For the first time, small to medium sized businesses will be able to take advantage of standards-based security across the enterprise without the business risk of creating a complex infrastructure or experiencing upfront capital costs. Paired with Schlage's pioneering multi-technology readers, customers can obtain a robust credential that allows seamless transition away from legacy technologies to higher security open standards that are compatible with recent U.S. government initiatives such as FIPS 201.
"The partnership with idOnDemand enables true convergence of building and IT assets, providing users with a single globally-trusted identity for buildings, computers and the cloud," reports John Menzel, Director of Business Development for Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies. "This partnership helps provide the convergence solutions that our customers are requesting."
"Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies shares a similar vision of making secure identity solutions more accessible and simple to deploy and manage," affirms Jason Hart, Chief Executive Officer of idOnDemand. "Our customers are asking for solutions that enable convergence and upgrading to the latest physical security systems. With the Schlage solution, this is now possible."
