AUSTIN, Texas, October 7, 2014 – HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, today announced its new HID Mobile Access® solution has been selected as a winner of the Campus Safety Best award in the Access Control & Identity Management category. The award honors superior products and services for hospital, school and university security professionals, and aims to recognize the most noteworthy new products and services that can impact campus safety and security in 2014. The company’s mobile access solution, which makes it possible to use smartphones and other mobile devices for opening doors, was selected by a panel of industry leaders and the editors of Campus Safety.
“HID Mobile Access is an ideal solution for bustling campus environments where students and staff can take advantage of using their smartphones, instead of carrying additional plastic cards, to conveniently open doors and gates,” said Brett St. Pierre, Director of Business Development, Education Solutions with HID Global. “We are honored to receive this industry validation as it underscores our commitment to launching a robust mobile access solution that is based on innovation, Genuine HID® quality and valuable customer insights from successful pilots at major institutions such as Vanderbilt University and Arizona State University.”
Supporting Bluetooth Smart and NFC, HID Mobile Access is used with the company’s mobile-enabled iCLASS SE® and/or multiCLASS SE® readers, and includes Mobile IDs, the HID Mobile Access App and access to the HID Secure Identity Services™ portal for managing users and issuing or revoking Mobile IDs. The solution makes it possible to use the broadest range of iOS®- and Android™-based smartphones and other smart devices – without the need for handset sleeves or accessories – to easily access buildings. Users can also open doors and gates from a distance via Bluetooth Smart and HID Global’s “Twist and Go” gesture technology.
The company’s mobile-enabled readers are interoperable with 125 kHz HID Prox and high-frequency technologies, which optimizes flexibility for seamlessly using both cards and mobile devices in a single access control system.
HID Mobile Access is powered by award-winning Seos® technology that turns any smart device into a trusted credential for opening doors, and the 2014 Campus Safety Best award marks HID Global’s fifteenth award for a Seos-based solution.
HID Mobile Access is now available through Platinum and Gold HID Advantage Partners in the U.S., Canada, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
