It’s all done with speed, accuracy and security by design. And handled in a convenient, frictionless manner. That’s by design, too.

Privacy and Security Are Our Priority

As a global leader of powering trusted identities, HID takes privacy and security very seriously.

Our biometric solutions are designed using the Secure Software Development Lifecycle (SSDL) methodology to ensure they can be securely integrated into our customers’ infrastructures. The SSDL process also gives developers insight into potential security gaps and threats before they occur.

Our technologies are developed using Privacy by Design — ethical data collection with user opt-in/opt-out and EULA guidance that’s fully compliant with today’s privacy regulations such as GDPR.

Authenticating Users in All Corners of the World

Because the HID DigitalPersona® 4500 Fingerprint Reader requires proof of presence for authentication, there is greater accountability among supervisors, which resulted in immediate cessation of POS fraud and a halt in revenue/inventory leakage.
