HID Global to Distribute Privaris’ plusID Line of Wireless Identity Verification Products
Charlottesville, VA – Privaris, a leading provider of personal, wireless identity verification solutions, announced that HID Global, the trusted leader in providing solutions for the delivery of secure identity, will distribute Privaris’ plusID™ family of products. plusID is the industry’s first line of personal biometric identity verification tokens for both physical and logical access. plusID is also the first product licensed by HID to use Virtual Credentials provided by the new HID idBank™ System. HID Global will initially sell plusID to a select group of HID partners.
Using its built-in fingerprint reader, plusID verifies its user’s identity before delivering industry standard credentials for secure access. plusID can support all of HID’s card formats, enabling it to operate with any organization’s existing HID readers – with no changes to the access control system. Using HID’s new idBank technology, combinations of HID Proximity, HID Indala Proximity, CASI Proximity and HID iCLASS® access credential formats can be securely loaded onto plusID devices, allowing customers to easily combine HID’s universally accepted access credentials with the increased security of biometric identity verification.
“A strong factor in our decision to partner with Privaris was plusID’s unique approach to identity verification,” said Mark Scaparro, Executive Vice President of Global Strategy at HID Global. “plusID provides not just the strong identity verification offered by biometrics, but also complete compatibility with HID’s trusted credentials, giving enterprises the ability to deploy it literally overnight.”
plusID provides secure access to multiple facilities, computers and networks, adding the heightened security of biometrics through a convenient and cost-effective delivery model. plusID allows for rapid integration by working seamlessly with existing physical and logical security systems, and ensures personal privacy by performing all biometric processing, including matching, on the user’s personal device, rather than an external database. Tamper-resistant and built to withstand digital and physical attack, plusID eliminates the security issues surrounding lost or stolen cards and passwords.
