HID Global introduced its new mobility initiative that includes solutions, services, investments and alliances that expand the capabilities of trusted IDs on mobile devices across a growing range of access control, authentication and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
A highlight of the initiative is the company’s latest mobility solutions unveiled today at ISC West 2016, including the new HID goID platform for mobile IDs which makes it possible to carry a driver license and other citizen IDs on smartphones, and new enhancements to HID Mobile Access that now enable the use of smartwatches and tablets, in addition to smartphones, for secure access to buildings.
“The HID Global mobility initiative dramatically elevates how users regard security by enabling them to confidently connect to and use more applications, on the go, than ever before, with a single, trusted ID that can be carried on a smart device,” said Stefan Widing, President and CEO at HID Global.
Over the past 18 months, HID Global has steadily integrated mobility into the security experience through numerous new solutions and services, strategic partnerships and investments. As the company’s mobility initiative has expanded and accelerated, it has improved the convenience of enterprise strong authentication and created a better and more secure banking experience. The company has also enabled new IoT applications and strengthened HID Global’s mobility portfolio through strategic partnerships and acquisitions.
“During the past several years, we’ve led the market in taking the first steps to turn smartphones into ID cards, keys and computer logon tools, with rapid growth in enterprise adoption of HID Mobile Access this year. Now, HID Global is driving advancements that will usher in an era of connected and trusted identities that become the heart of a more secure digital lifestyle built around the convenience and ubiquity of our ever-present mobile devices.” Widing added.
