HID Global unveiled its HID Global IT Channel Program, established to facilitate identity and access management with third-party IT vendors focused on providing secure data access software and integrated strong authentication solutions.
Enterprise identity management companies Avaleris®, Imprivata® and Passlogix® have signed as new members of the program, which is based around the Crescendo™ smart cards. The initiative will allow HID Global and its partners to offer a wide range of fully integrated access and identity card solutions and services.
The new IT-oriented vendors offer enterprise applications such as single sign-on, user provisioning, smart card based strong authentication, secure remote access (VPN), pre-boot authentication, data encryption and other key IT security-related applications.
“HID Global is strategically focused on enabling a wide range of fully integrated access solutions. Our goal is to help leading solution providers integrate Crescendo and other HID products to allow customers to choose the solutions that best fit their needs,” says Mark Scaparro, vice president of Market Strategy, Access and Identity, HID Global.
Crescendo resellers will join existing partner Lenel Systems Int’l, a company with roots in physical access control software that provides integrated physical and logical access solutions.
