AUSTIN, Texas – HID Global has acquired Quantum Secure, a provider of software solutions for managing identities, access compliance and provisioning access within physical security infrastructure, for an undisclosed amount.
With this acquisition, HID Global will enhance its ability to deliver an end-to-end identity management solution. Additionally, the firm’s representatives say the deal will help HID Global address customer needs in managing identity, risk and compliance.
