HID has acquired ActivIdentity (formerly ActivCard) and offers outstanding solutions in the field of Secure Identity Solutions.

The following solutions form the base of a secure identity solution:

  • ActivID Credential Management System (former Card Management System)
    A solution for issuing and managing PIV and PIV-I cards, enterprise access cards and mobile credentials.
  • ActivID AAA Server
    Delivers multi-factor authentication for securing employee remote access to corporate VPNs and other enterprise resources.
  • ActivID Authentication Server
    A versatile, flexible and highly scalable platform for securing access to government and corporate systems and online consumer services.
  • ActivID ActivClient
    A clientside smart card solution for strong authentication to protect workstations, mobile devices and networks.

HID Global’s ActivID® Credential Management System (CMS) enables organizations to issue an authentication credential that goes beyond perimeter security. A smart card or smart token can be used to secure access to individual workstations and servers within the firewall, as well as securing VPN and other remote access use cases. The smart card or token can also be used to encrypt data, hard drives, documents and emails, and for digital signatures.

The ActivID Credential Management System is ideal for:

  • Medium to large enterprises issuing employees with converged access cards or smart tokens for authentication, data encryption and data signing
  • US Federal government agencies deploying Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards and commercial organizations deploying PIV-I or Commercial Identity Verification (CIV) cards.
  • Governments issuing citizens identification cards with PKI-based credentials

ActivID CMS is the only offering in the industry that makes it possible for organizations to create, manage and use a single PKI smart card for both logical and physical access – using a unified solution from a single vendor.

Organizations deploying the ActivID CMS are able to securely provision PKI certificates and other credentials to a range of different devices, including smart cards, tokens and mobile phones. It is also scalable to millions of credentials in distributed complex environments with multiple user groups. ActivID CMS interfaces with physical access control systems (PACS) to automate the PIV or PIV-I card enrollment process enabling users to use their card to authenticate at the door without the need to re-enroll their card.
