HID Global has reported that American Security Today (AST) has been named winners of the 2020 ASTORS Homeland Security Awards for its HID NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader and WorkforceID solutions.
“We are proud to receive this award for our NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader, which facilitates rapid identification in the field and recognizes HID’s mission to enable and support law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve,” said Steve Currie, Senior Vice President and Head of Extended Access Technologies with HID Global.
“We are pleased with this industry recognition for WorkforceID, which addresses the dynamic cyber and physical security needs, as well as regulatory compliance challenges, of today’s diverse work environments,” said Brad Jarvis, Senior Vice President and Head of Identity & Access Management Solutions with HID Global. “Our solution’s growing workforce and visitor identity management applications will continue to drive efficiency and further streamline workplace processes.”
The HID NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader enables end-users, such as law enforcement officers, to pair their own mobile devices with biometric reader hardware and perform matching within minutes while in the field.
The pocket reader’s rapid identification capabilities offer improved operational efficiency and reduce time and booking costs associated with processing at police stations.
