Security company HID Global recently announced the latest addition to its cloud platform for creating a seamless, effortless experience for issuing, managing and using identity credentials in physical and digital workplaces, the Workforce ID Authentication.
It builds upon HID’s multi-factor authentication platform for consumer applications, as part of a suite of employee ID badging, visitor management and workforce identity solutions.
“A person’s identity has become the new security perimeter in a hybrid workplace that now extends from home to the office and everywhere in between,” said Julian Lovelock, VP Global Business Segment, IAM, with HID Global. “The addition of multi-factor authentication to the HID WorkforceID platform advances our vision of a unified and flexible approach to identity and access management for an organisation’s employees, partners and contractors. This is the next step in providing a suite of applications that manage digital and physical identity credentials through one convenient cloud platform.”
The HID WorkforceID Authentication solution enables organisations to extend a streamlined, simple and secure login experience to every user and application throughout today’s diverse and dynamic enterprise environment. It easily integrates with Microsoft’s on-premise Active Directory (AD) or cloud-based Azure AD. This standards-based security platform is positioned within the environment to enable simplified deployment and administration, multiple authentication factors, with an intuitive user experience.
