  • HID on the Desktop - HID on the Desktop allows organisations to leverage existing physical access cards to deploy an additional layer of security using smart card technology, PKI and digital certificates for those seeking an advanced yet convenient security solution to meet privacy and regulatory compliance standards. As a three-component solution - Genuine HID contact and contactless smart cards, readers and credential management software - HID on the Desktop provides corporate enterprises and government agencies with the flexibility to deploy the most "risk-appropriate" authentication solution based on their unique security requirements. The demonstration will step attendees through the entire HID on the Desktop experience, from issuing the credential to accessing a desktop computer.
  • Genuine HID Credential Solutions - Crescendo and other Genuine HID technology contactless and contact smart cards enable users to seamlessly manage multiple applications and migration projects through a single credential containing diverse technologies.
  • Next-Generation Readers - OMNIKEY Readers, including desktop readers with contact and/or contactless interface and readers to support today's mobile workforce, offer one-stop shopping for ready-to-use PC smart card reader devices.
