HID Global Wins Govies Award For a “First” in Identity and Access Management

Austin, April 19, 2017 - HID Global®, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced that it has won Security Products Magazine’s 2017 Govies Award in the category of User Authentication, Identification, Credentialing and Management.  HID scored highest with a converged solution that is the first to enable end-to-end identity and access management (IAM) for both physical and IT security.

“This Govies award recognizes how important it is that government agencies and organizations in regulated industries give users a single, secure credential for accessing doors, IT systems, networks and data, and that they achieve this goal with a simplified compliance path,” said Brad Jarvis, Vice President and Managing Director of the IAM Solutions business with HID Global. “We are honored to receive this award for our IAM solution.”

HID Global’s award-winning IAM solution, based on HID’s ActivID®, IdenTrust and Quantum Secure technologies, is relevant for both government and enterprise customers.  It provides trusted identities for accessing both IT and physical domains and delivers the full range of standards-compliant, pre-integrated identity proofing and lifecycle management capabilities to establish, create, use and manage secure credentials.  It gives users a streamlined experience while extending strong authentication from the desktop to the door, and also supports advanced use cases, including digital signing, secure printing, full disk encryption and boot protection.

In the past, the complexity of procuring, deploying and managing the systems that deliver all these functions created a huge integration and support burden for IT – often requiring products from 5-12 different vendors.  Because HID has the broadest identity management portfolio, it is in the unique position to deliver a pre-integrated solution with much simpler support processes, which is not only attractive to government agencies but also to any enterprise that is concerned about compliance or wanting to improve their security profile.   

The HID IAM Govies award-winning solution is offered as the following options:
