Accreditation recognizes Cygate’s expertise and experience in managing the successful deployment of its multi-layer authentication and credential management solutions
The IPP is an exclusive certification program for partners that provide best in class professional services

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently announced it has accredited Cygate, a leading Swedish IT infrastructure integration company as the first Northern European implementation partner in its Identity Assurance Implementation Partner Program (IPP). The Implementation Partner Program is an exclusive certification program for partners that provide best in class professional services for Identity Assurance solutions offered by HID Global. This accreditation recognizes Cygate’s expertise and experience in managing the successful deployment of HID Global’s multi-layer strong authentication and credential management solutions.

Organizations worldwide see the need to implement strong authentication to secure access of corporate information for users on internal networks and from mobile device or cloud-based applications. These evolving businesses have made versatile strong authentication and credential management solutions increasingly critical to ensure that only legitimate users can access confidential and proprietary information quickly and effectively.

“Cygate has a strong track record of delivering complex authentication and credential management solutions,” said Hilding Arrehed, director of worldwide professional services and technology partner programs, Identity Assurance, with HID Global.  “Cygate’s technical expertise and thorough understanding of business needs, along with HID Global’s scalable and versatile security platforms, allows for the delivery of a total IT solution with the highest possible security.”

Cygate offers tailored IT infrastructure solutions for medium and large-size companies and organizations, where security represents a vital part of these solutions. Cygate’s in-depth technical knowledge of HID Global’s Identity Assurance solutions can bring immeasurable security confidence to any IT solution they implement.

With this accreditation, Cygate is now authorized to undertake professional service engagements that follow “Project Assurance” methodology developed by HID Global’s Identity Assurance Professional Services team. The Cygate accreditation applies to the company’s expertise with the ActivID Card Management System (CMS). Future expansion to HID Global’s 4TRESS Authentication Appliance is also anticipated. Cygate has already completed a number of projects that include Identity Assurance products from HID Global, such as a credential management solution recently delivered to a large Swedish financial institution.

“Through our enhanced cooperation and expanded consulting capabilities, Cygate will now deliver increased implementation services for HID Global smart cards and card management solutions,” said Anders Jägermo, Business Manager Security at Cygate. “In our work as a systems integrator, where the demand for strong identification increases significantly, we see Identity Management as an increasingly important piece of customer solutions moving forward.”
