OMNIKEY Desktop Readers from HID Bolstered by New Technologies

HID says that its new OMNIKEY 5427CK desktop readers can securely used to allow employees access to buildings and prevent unauthorized building access.

AUSTIN, Texas—HID, a manufacturer of identity solutions, has announced a new technology for supporting retail point of sales (POS) to ensure data access and identity verification through industry-certified OMNIKEY Desktop Readers.

These solutions are powered by the latest RFID technology and designed to offer pioneering, reliable and successful applications.

HID explains that its OMNIKEY 5427CK desktop readers can be used for employee logical access. Employees use their access card to log in to their POS station and scan their badge during each transaction they process. This process the company continues, ensures a simple, secure and efficient method of authenticating employees while verifying each user before they gain access to a POS.

OMNIKEY Desktop Readers Secure POS Processes

HID stresses that strong authentication around POS transactions is critical within retail environments. HID asserts that organizations need a simple, streamlined way to ensure that only authorized users have access to POS applications and pertinent business data.

Fulfilling those needs, HID says the OMNIKEY 5427CK desktop readers help prevent unauthorized access, the product enforces accountability among staff; it eliminates the risks around password use, and it fortifies retailers against phishing attacks and fraud. The OMNIKEY Desktop readers are designed to facilitate access to shared POS stations where users no longer must tolerate tedious password practices of re-entering their credentials every time they log in, log out or transact.

The company also emphasizes that passwordless authentication, as well as reducing IT help desk costs related to password resets, supports compliance with industry regulation and authentication standards, and it protects data. It also provides a more seamless experience for employees which translates to better, faster service to elevate the overall customer experience.

HID adds the OMNIKEY 5427CK readers offer passwordless login and user authentication. When employees want to access a station, they simply present their access badge to the reader to prove who they are to remove the nuisance and risks using passwords. The OMNIKEY contactless reader authenticates individuals by using secure communication and data assigned to each user. Connected directly via a USB cable, OMNIKEY 5427CK readers are designed to be simple to install, and the product can support all relevant operating systems and environments where contactless smart card technologies are required.
