HID Global to enable the use of access control cards for IT systems’ authentication
HID Global, a major name in the field of smart card -based access control solutions, will showcase a very innovative authentication and access control solution at Intel Developer Forum 2013, which will enable users to use the same ID badge credential that is used for building access for IT authentication and login to their computer.
The company will showcase its innovative IT security use cases of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology and Seos, the industry’s first credential for complete enterprise-ready access control to everything from the door, to the data, to the cloud.
As part of HID Global’s iCLASS SE®platform, Seos is a high frequency credential for increased security, flexibility and portability. Seos is a standards-based technology to manage and authenticate identities and it delivers maximum interoperability by supporting current, emerging and future technologies such as NFC-enabled smartphones and other mobile devices.
"NFC will be a standard feature of many smartphones, tablets and laptops, where users will be able to tap a credential to login to their computer in the same way that they tap an ID badge to a door reader for building access," said Jerome Becquart, vice president of Identity Assurance with HID Global. "HID Global is well-positioned to couple NFC with our ground-breaking Seos credential already used for physical access control, which can extend the use of the credential into a wide range of IT authentication use cases in the future.
Access Control UK employs a variety of access control technologies, including the ones developed by HID Global, to create advanced solutions, enable users to exert solid, reliable and accurate control over the access to specific premises or zones.
