HID Global has recently announced it has expanded its pivCLASS® product portfolio with an extensive family of credential authentication solutions that enables customers to comply with government physical access control mandates.

According to the company’s statement, their pivCLASS suite now incorporates a comprehensive family of software solutions from Codebench, part of HID Global, with HID’s pivCLASS Authentication Module (PAM), readers and credentials that offer a complete solution for end-to-end compliance with Homeland Security Presidential Directive -12 (HSPD-12) and FIPS 201 to PIV-enable a physical access control system (PACS).

The pivCLASS Government Solutions portfolio supports credential verification of FIPS 201-based credentials (PIV, PIV-I, CAC, CIV, TWIC, FRAC) and physical access control registration into more than 30 different PACS head end products. The portfolio enables government agencies to comply with FIPS 201 requirements by leveraging their existing technology and eliminating the need to rip and replace existing systems. pivCLASS now includes a complete range of Personal Identity Verification (PIV) registration, verification and reader products, allowing government agencies to use PIV-enabled cards for strong public key infrastructure (PKI)-based validation for physical access control.

“With the latest additions to our pivCLASS portfolio, HID Global provides a single source for government agencies to upgrade their existing physical access control systems with PIV capabilities,” said John Fenske, vice president of product marketing, Physical Access Control with HID Global. “As the industry’s first comprehensive FIPS 201-compliant solution for migrating to PIV, pivCLASS makes it easy for agencies to meet compliance requirements, and implement higher security by enabling a phased deployment approach that meets their security and budgetary needs.”
