Advanced Multi-factor Authentication for Law Enforcement

Secure, compliant and efficient access to criminal history record databases and critical workflows for police departments, sheriffs’ offices and other law enforcement agencies.

Drivers in Law Enforcement IT Security

As police and law enforcement agencies adopt new mobile technologies, the risk of unauthorized access to record databases that store sensitive citizen data, criminal history, fingerprint records and motor vehicle information grows. With officers on patrol and at desks, efficient and easy access to these records is critical. Tight budgets and IT resources need scalable solutions to support growing needs. In addition, mandates and standards require the use of multi-factor and risk-based authentication methods.

HID® DigitalPersona® helps federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to:

  • Establish secure user identities in alignment with a Zero Trust security approach
  • Comply with CJIS Security Policy for two-factor (2FA) or advanced multi-factor authentication (MFA) from remote or unsecured locations
  • Deploy the right authentication factor that meets the needs of your individual user—whether it’s a biometric, mobile access, tokens, smart cards, or One-Time Passwords, we have you covered
  • Defend against data breach with granular policy control that is consistently enforced whether officers are at a desk or out on patrol
  • Easily scale mobile security with an adaptable and scalable authentication solution that covers any device, anytime and anywhere with limited burden to IT infrastructure and support teams
  • Balance security and convenience with a broad selection of authentication methods that allows for both strong data security and frictionless access
  • Deploy rapidly in days, not months, and with minimal disruption to both IT and end users
  • Implement customized solutions for the unique needs of your law enforcement agency using HID Professional Services
