AUSTIN, Texas, Dec 17, 2014 – , a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, today announced that the company has been selected as one of China's Top 10 Access Control Brands for 2014 for the eleventh consecutive year by A&S China, a leading security publication in the nation. A&S Top 10 awards winners are selected by industry-leading distributors, system integrators, installers, end users and designers. The award reinforces the company’s ongoing initiatives to deliver new capabilities for meeting current and future secure identity requirements in the region.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by one of the most influential security media publications in China,” said Eric Chiu, director of sales, Greater China with HID Global. “The award further validates our dedication to continually support customers with innovative solutions for an ever-growing range of applications.”
HID Global won the award for its iCLASS SE solutions that enable seamless convergence of multiple applications onto a single smart card or other device. Powered by the company’s Seos® technology, iCLASS SE® platform solutions include readers, interoperable microprocessor-based credentials (cards, smartphones and other mobile devices) and encoding tools. The platform simplifies how identities are created, used and managed across physical and logical access control, biometrics, cashless vending, customer loyalty programs, transit and other applications.
Additionally, Seos technology enables any smart device using wireless technology -- such as NFC or Bluetooth -- to become a trusted credential, replacing mechanical keys and access cards to open doors in homes, hotels, offices, hospitals, universities, and industrial and commercial buildings. Seos technology is also used for issuing, delivering and revoking digital keys that are delivered with end-to-end encryption.
