ActivIdentity Corp. and the Australian Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) celebrated the anniversary of the upgrade of its new government employee ID using ActivIdentity ActivID Card Management System and the successful expansion of the system by an additional 3,000 users in order to deliver a security solution to its 9,000 employees.
The ActivIdentity ActivID Card Management System, which is part of ActivIdentity’s credential management product line, updates the issuance of employee ID cards and provides the department with an identity framework. With the deployment of ActivIdentity ActivID Card Management System, the department will be able to update data on all previously issued employee ID cards, provide self-service password resets for staff and deliver a single point of administration that ensures efficiency, productivity, convenience and simplicity for both users and administrators.
The solution will allow DEEWR to “own” the cards they deploy and update them after they have been issued to staff. The department will have the ability to add or remove data and certificates as required. DEEWR will also be able to reprogram the entire card if required.
The upgrade will ensure that DEEWR’s employee IDs are compliant with the “Identity Management for Australian Government Employees” framework (IMAGE). IMAGE is an Australian government-wide initiative, providing an integrated, transparent identity management system across government agencies. DEEWR will be one of the first Australian government agencies to issue IMAGE-compliant employee identification cards.
