HID Global, a globally renowned company in trusted identity solutions, has announced the general availability of WorkforceID Authentication solution, the latest addition to its cloud platform for creating a seamless, effortless experience for issuing, managing and using identity credentials in physical and digital workplaces.

Workforce ID Authentication

Workforce ID Authentication builds upon HID’s proven and widely deployed multi-factor authentication platform for consumer applications, including online and mobile banking. It joins a growing suite of employee ID badging, visitor management and other trusted workforce identity solutions.

A person’s identity has become the new security perimeter in a hybrid workplace that now extends from home to the office and everywhere in between,” said Julian Lovelock, Vice President for Global Business Segment, IAM, with HID Global.

Multi-factor authentication addition

WorkforceID Authentication solution enables organisations to extend a simple and secure login for every user

Julian adds, “The addition of multi-factor authentication to the HID WorkforceID platform advances our vision of a unified and flexible approach to identity and access management for an organisation’s employees, partners and contractors. This is the next step in providing a suite of applications that manage digital and physical identity credentials through one convenient cloud platform.

Pivotal in HID’s overall multi-factor authentication portfolio, the HID WorkforceID Authentication solution enables organisations to extend a streamlined, simple and secure login experience to every user and application, throughout the diverse and dynamic enterprise environment.

Integration with Active Directory and cloud-based Azure AD

It easily integrates with Microsoft’s on-premise Active Directory (AD) or cloud-based Azure AD. This platform is positioned within the environment to enable:

  • Simplified deployment and administration: Easy integration with cloud-based, on-premise, or hybrid legacy applications, as well as existing enterprise technology, including Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) for remote login.
  • Multiple authentication factors: HID ActivID one time password tokens and security keys, smart cards, and the HID Approve mobile app that enables users to authenticate to applications and deny fraudulent login attempts via their phone.
  • Standards-based security: ISO 27001 standards, SOC2-certified, and EU GDPR-compliant.
  • Intuitive user experience: Featuring self-service tasks for setting up authentication methods.

WorkforceID Digital Credential Manager

The WorkforceID Authentication solution extends HID’s broader authentication ecosystem that includes its comprehensive credential offering and WorkforceID Digital Credential Manager, for easily managing workforce authenticators used for both physical and digital access.

HID Global was recently recognised as the overall top challenger in the KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for Enterprise Authentication Solutions report and included as a renowned company in its market leadership category.

Identity vetting and credentialing services

The report noted that “HID Global has been a strong player in government and enterprise workforce IAM for years. The company’s inclusion of identity vetting and credentialing services is a valuable differentiating factor in their solution.
