HID on the Desktop
|The acquistion of ActivIdentity by HID Global has enhanced the secure identity services provided by the company|
HID on the Desktop allows organisations to leverage existing physical access cards to deploy an additional layer of IT security using smart card technology, PKI and digital certificates. It is a three-component solution for deploying the most "risk-appropriate" authentication based on an organisation's unique security requirements:
- Contactless smart cards and Crescendo contact smart cards. Crescendo can enable PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) cryptography and digital certificates.
- naviGO credential management software enables the addition of PC logon functionality to cards regardless of the existing physical access control system or IT infrastructure.
- HID's OMNIKEY readers include a contact and/or contactless interface with support for a variety of desktop and mobile applications.
ActivIdentity ActivID™ Card Management System (CMS)
Demonstrations will include the installation, configuration and deployment of ActivID CMS. The solution issues and manages the lifecycle of PIV Cards for the delivery of fully integrated physical access control and IT security solutions.
Credential and Reader Solutions:
- Genuine HID technology cards enable users to seamlessly manage multiple applications and migration projects through a single credential containing diverse technologies.
- HID's Edge reader and VertX controller line for access control applications will be on display and connected to ActivIdentity's ActivEntry solution that brings physical access control systems to full compliance with U.S. government standards.
Printing and Encoding Solutions
- HID's FARGO® HDP5000 card printer/encoder delivers a High Definition Printing solution for superior print quality, durability and greater security. It produces reliable, professional quality, personalised color ID cards and security encoding all in one pass. The HDP5000 is on the GSA list for FIPS 201 Approved Products.
