Safetrust Integrates Mobile Credentials With WaveLynx Access Readers
The partnership will merge Safetrust’s mobile solution and identity management platform along with WaveLynx’s access control hardware solutions into a complete mobile security platform.
DENVER — WaveLynx Technologies, a developer of customizable physical security readers and credentialing, announces a strategic partnership with Fremont, Calif.-based Safetrust, a developer of IoT-enabled mobile credentials for buildings and information systems.
The partnership will merge Safetrust’s mobile solution and identity management platform along with WaveLynx’s access control hardware solutions into a complete mobile security platform, according to the company.
Safetrust’s mobile credentials will be natively integrated with WaveLynx’s line of access readers, allowing already-established Safetrust credentials to be securely communicated via WaveLynx’s Bluetooth readers.
WaveLynx says the partnership is designed to offer the market an end-to-end solution that enables a seamless transition from traditional proximity cards to the future of smart credentials.
“The WaveLynx approach to openness and adherence to industry protocols has made the native integration with Safetrust an easy transition,” says Jason Hart, CEO of Safetrust. “This integration enables customers to deploy an upgradeable and manageable high-performance door reader for fast and seamless mobile building access, while producing additional IoT business intelligence. With over-the-air and over-the-wire upgrade capabilities, the WaveLynx readers can be updated to include new standard mobile, identity and IoT protocols as they evolve. WaveLynx develops hardware and we develop software — it’s a perfect fit.”
By incorporating the physical attributes of a “badge” into the mobile application, Safetrust credentials enable mobile identity management that allows authorized personnel to identify individuals within range through a visual ID on their mobile device.
These credentials bridge the gap between physical and logical access, making it possible for the same mobile device that works with WaveLynx wall mount door readers for facility access to work with USB devices for computer data access, printer access and digital document signing.
“Together, Safetrust and WaveLynx are bringing a ‘best of breed’ software and hardware solution for mobile facility access to the market,” says Hugo Wendling, president of WaveLynx Technologies. “In my opinion, Safetrust is lightyears ahead of the competition with regards to Bluetooth identity and credential solutions. We are fortunate to have formed such a great business relationship with Safetrust that complements and supports our WaveLynx products.”
