HID Global the provider of secure identity solutions has launched its HID Mobile Access solution in India for enterprises. The solution is designed keeping in mind the increasing use of BYOD mobility environments, using Bluetooth Smart and NFC-enabled smartphones and other mobile devices as an alternative to keys and smart cards. Along with this, it also introduces the patent “Twist and Go” gesture technology of the company.
Speaking at the launch, Ranjit Nambiar, Director, IAM, India & SAARC, HID Global, said, “HID Global’s mobile access solution will help organizations take advantage of the latest technology advances to improve security, convenience and user experience. We already see growing Indian enterprises adopting mobility and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). Large enterprise CIOs and Chief Innovation Officers are keen to understand how personal devices like smartphones can be further empowered to boost employee productivity and growth.”
The solution allows the use of digital credentials on NFC enabled smartphones to open doors and significantly improves security while enhancing the user experience by making it easier to deploy and manage keys, as the digital key can be downloaded remotely in real time.
Along with this new solution, the company has also introduced a unique and user friendly HID Secure Identity Service portal. The portal will help in conveniently and efficiently administrating the portal by simply sending users an invitation to download and register an HID Mobile Access App directly to their Bluetooth- or NFC-enabled phones, so that Mobile IDs can be immediately issued, provisioned or revoked over the air.
The new solution is powered by the Seos technology, which turns smartphones and other mobile devices into trusted credentials. It also helps in preserving privacy by enabling Mobile IDs to be issued, delivered and revoked with end-to-end encryption as part of a unique transaction that protects personal identification data.
