Overview | Specifications

Organizations struggle to get their consumer authentication just right. Add too many enrollment and security features, and users refuse to enroll or worse - drop out of the service altogether. On the other hand, not having enough security in place you could wind up exposing your organization to too many unnecessary risks.

A cloud-based authentication service that is focused on consumer, direct to-the-end user customer authentication that allows for easy enrollment and use of the service is critical to success in your organization. In reality, it is already here.

HID® Global’s cloud identity platform provides a suite of cloud services to deliver trusted authentication for regulated industries such as healthcare and financial services as well as government and critical infrastructure, where high security is crucial. These services make it easy to establish, create, manage and use identities through a secure cloud delivery model.
