HID Approve is a next-generation multi-factor authentication solution that combines the security of public key-based cryptography with the convenience of mobile push notifications, and that delivers a simple and secure way for users to authenticate and verify their transactions. The ability to brand it accordingly to enterprise, banking or healthcare provider needs raises the attractiveness for the companies, while the ability to run multiple accounts on one device raises the experience for their users and employees with shared mobile workstations.

HID Approve works in conjunction with the ActivID® Authentication Server & HID Risk Management Solution that provides the supporting infrastructure and advanced Risk-Based Authentication capabilities to the application.

“Financial institutions have already discovered that HID Approve is a groundbreaking technology redefining user authentication for mobile banking, but this New Product of the Year award at RSA speaks to the innovation that HID is delivering to enterprise & healthcare organizations who are continuously trying to improve security and user experience for their users,” said Martin Ladstaetter, Vice President of Product Management, Identity & Access Management Solutions with HID Global.  “We are honored that HID Global is recognized as one of the leading innovators for identity and access management.”
