Verizon has earned the federal government’s Personal Identity Verification Interoperable certification for the company’s Identity Managed Service Offering. This certification, issued by the Federal PKI Policy Authority, provides assurance that identity services are helping to improve security, reduce identity fraud and protect the privacy of credentialed users and their organizations.
Verizon’s cloud-based identity offering enables federal agencies and organizations that work with the federal government to create, issue and manage digital identity credentials for workers and contractors, via Verizon’s identity services platform.
To ensure and support strong identity standards, PIV-I outlines specific control objectives and security requirements for government employees and contractors. The standard addresses the vast population of private-sector workers who need to work with federal systems in the course of their daily business, as well as, state and local government agencies, critical infrastructure businesses and emergency workers.
Verizon’s Identity Managed Service Offering provides identity management, credential management, biometric enrollment, privilege management and validation services in one complete offering. As this offering is available via the cloud, customers benefit from a solution that is faster and less complex than traditional credentialing implementations.
