How Mobility and Connectivity Bring Value to Financial Services

Posted March 20, 2015

pr_1157When it comes to maintaining secure financial operations and providing top-notch customer service, success hinges on an organization’s ability to transform information into insight. Additionally, with fraud and theft on the rise, it’s critical that financial institutions constantly improve protection plans. And since no two financial organizations are alike, a variety of multi-level security options is needed. From print-on-demand (POD) technologies that enable “intelligent” access cards and radio frequency identification (RFID) to desktop printers and document and record tracking applications, organizations are capable of securing people, products and property across their operations—while maintaining a high level of customer service.

Financial information, assets and communications are mission critical. It’s vital that solutions and devices enable officials to locate, track and manage personnel, confidential materials and high-value assets in real time—after all, the best security is proactive, not reactive. Furthermore, it’s crucial that only authorized individuals have access to secure locations. In addition to leveraging the value of mobile devices and printers, organizations can take advantage of opportunities afforded by the Internet of Things (IoT) by utilizing a set of enabling technologies to connect, capture and then analyze the data to make more informed decisions. Connecting devices to one cloud platform will enable them to gain actionable insight into their operations and processes—providing the asset intelligence they need to stay competitive.

Achieve Your Federal Identification Credentialing Goals

Posted March 23, 2012

Enabling Security, Compliance, and Efficiency

Identity management and verification depend on trusted credentialing technologies. U.S. federal, state and local governments and private enterprises alike are seeking ways to improve security, not just for facility access, but also for single-sign-on into cyberspace. Furthermore, non-federal issuers of identity cards demand cost-effective, compliant methods to produce identity cards that interoperate with federal government Personal Identity Verification (PIV) and PIV-Interoperable (PIV-I) systems.

Beyond government applications, the private sector also stands to gain from secure credentialing standards and technologies. The PIV-I card is a non-federally issued credential designed for use by state and regional employees, including first responders. The PIV-I card meets all FIPS 201 standards and is recognized and trusted by the federal government. PIV-I cards can provide states, local jurisdictions, and enterprises a single, interoperable, and secure credential usable across multiple application areas. The result is a more secure infrastructure, and better services for employees, contractors, businesses, and consumers.

This white paper provides an overview of FIPS 201-compliant smart ID cards and shows the significant benefits the technology enables. The paper also shows how to produce PIV-I compliant access cards that contain tamperresistant coatings, radio frequency identification (RFID), and other features using the latest printing technologies.

Secure the Campus While Providing Essential Services

From universities to primary schools, a revolution in technology is taking shape. The days when mundane tasks such as registration, book purchases, and meal programs required an army of administrators to manage piles of paperwork is but a digital page in today’s history e-books. Twenty-first-century innovation is bringing automation— and a chance to improve security—to the campus.

With education costs skyrocketing, departments at all levels are looking for ways to do more with less—trimming expenses while maximizing staff productivity. Add the looming threats to campus security, and educators must make decisions that balance quality of education with protecting our students. In fact, the 2011 Campus Safety magazine’s “How Safe Is Your Campus?” report revealed that 52 percent of faculty said their institutions fail to dedicate sufficient resources to campus safety and security.

The simple answer relies on the same technology that corporations use—secure smart ID cards. Embedded with “smart” features such as radio frequency identification (RFID) and tamper-resistant laminates, education campuses can realize a wide range of benefits, from tightening security, to streamlining admission, to improving paid services. Read on to find out how you can benefit from smart cards, and learn how your school district can do more with less.
