AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, today announced its new HID Mobile Access® solution has been selected by the ASIS International organization as a winner of the 2014 ASIS Accolades Security’s Best competition, which recognizes the industry’s most innovative new technologies, products, solutions and services. The company’s mobile access solution, which makes it possible to use smartphones and other mobile devices for opening doors, was selected by judges representing a cross-sector of end-users and technology.
“We are honored to have HID Mobile Access with our patented 'Twist and Go' gesture technology recognized as one of the most innovative solutions for 2014,” said Selva Selvaratnam, senior vice president and chief technology officer with HID Global. “HID Mobile Access is powered by our award-winning Seos® technology that turns any smart device into a trusted credential for opening doors, and the 2014 ASIS Accolade marks HID Global’s fourteenth award for a Seos-based solution. This acknowledgement continually validates the market need for standards-based products, solutions and services that deliver convenience and advanced security.”
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, HID Mobile Access Apps 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 to access buildings, and open doors and gates from a distance via Bluetooth Smart and HID Global’s “Twist and Go” 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 solutions are now available through Platinum and Gold HID Advantage Partners in the U.S., Canada, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
