In our connected society, ensuring security in the access to corporate data and information has become a priority. But beyond economic issues, security, and ensuring that their identity and access rights are secure,are necessities, says the access control product company STid.
Vincent Dupart, STid’s Managing Director, says: “With increasing mobility in businesses, a technological revolution is underway, with interconnected resources. Access control is changing, with new uses and new equipment affected. Smartphones offer new ways of interacting with access control readers. Our Architect Blue and STid Mobile ID offerings already anticipated these trends.”
STid Mobile ID has been developed with RFID, NFC and Bluetooth Smart technologies, bringing the access badge onto mobile terminals such as smartphones. It can work alongside, extend or replace traditional access badges, the product developer says. Maé Tholoniat, STid’s Product Manager, says: “This virtual badge offers a range of intuitive and user-friendly methods that can be tailored to use in any situation – proximity or hands-free mode, “tap tap”, remote control, touch and more.”
With the online application, a virtual badge can be sent instantly and securely to a remote user (such as a visitor, or new staff member) with an Android phone or iPhone. The offline application can be used to create virtual badges, in the same way as conventional badges. The online version will enable access rights to be managed in real-time by remotely sending access authorizations to a smartphone.
Vincent Dupart adds: “The benefits of the mobile phone will give the opportunity to create new business models and thus, gradually replace physical cards.” Visit www.stid.com.
