PLEASANTON, Calif., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- idOnDemand, the pioneers in smart identification, today announced immediate availability of its Onsite Card Issuance feature. The turnkey service extends idOnDemand's cloud solution enabling customers to issue fully compliant and globally trusted identity cards on their premises with minimal investment.
The new feature is ideal for organizations that require immediate onsite production of credentials, as well as for remote offices to produce and deliver identity cards on the organization's behalf. The only additional cost is for a local issuance printer with an idOnDemand production encoder. The actual smart identity infrastructure is securely hosted and maintained by idOnDemand.
idOnDemand SmartID meets a wide range of government and enterprise standards and enables users to access and protect buildings, IT systems and mobile resources with a single identification card. idOnDemand SmartIDs can be issued to different security levels including government standards for Personal Identity Verification (PIV) as specified in Federal Information Processing Standard 201 (FIPS 201).
"Organizations spend considerable time and money issuing ID cards to employees, contractors and others who enter their facilities and access corporate information," said Jason Hart, Chief Executive Officer at idOnDemand. "Being able to produce smart identity cards both onsite or through idOnDemand's bureau service enables companies to quickly issue professional, cost-effective identities no matter where the employee is located. This allows instant, authorized access to buildings, computers and mobile resources."
idOnDemand's Onsite Card Issuance feature is also ideal for organizations after a merger or acquisition to quickly issue secure employee badges that display their new look and security requirements, or after a new corporate identity is established, such as a name change or new logo.
By leveraging idOnDemand's Onsite Card Issuance or full-time card production bureau service, organizations can simplify their ongoing card production environment while reducing the need for large stock levels and significant investment in high capacity printers.
The Onsite Card Issuance feature supports local issuance of globally trusted PKI, PIV-I, PIV-C, over 30 building prox formats, MIFARE® Classic and MIFARE® DESFire EV1 and is now available as part of idOnDemand's hosted identity service.
idOnDemand delivers a standards based, single trusted identity and smart card solution. Using the idOnDemand managed service, organizations can quickly, easily and cost effectively grant trusted access for employees, customers and partners to information and assets such as IT systems, remote access, data encryption, secure email, mobile resources and building access. Authorized users no longer need to carry multiple tokens, ID cards, building access cards or remember multiple passwords.
