HID Crescendo® Zero Trust Access

HID Global’s Crescendo® family of Microsoft-compatible security keys provide secure user identities and offer true converged access to workplaces, on-premise and cloud apps, and protect corporate data.

Balance Zero Trust Security and End-User Convenience

Organizations often struggle with how best to implement Zero Trust. While users need access to a variety of IT resources conveniently and efficiently, IT requires that the entire environment is secured, from physical entry to IT systems to cloud apps. The challenge is how to merge end-user needs and IT requirements into a budget-friendly single Zero Trust product that is easy to implement.

Our Crescendo family of security keys rises to the challenge and enables organizations to:

  • Build a Zero Trust foundation with secure identities to access physical and IT resources across the organization
  • Provide superior user convenience with a single, convenient and hassle-free credential for converged access
  • Increase security through the support of Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and open standards such as FIDO2, PIV/PKI and OATH
  • Integrate seamlessly with their infrastructure including Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and Azure Active Directory
  • Deploy quickly and scale as security requirements change
  • Comply with regulations and standards to reach required security levels

Extend Zero Trust Security with FIDO2

Microsoft-compatible HID Crescendo security keys enable passwordless authentication through the support of FIDO2 standards. Windows 10 devices joined to Azure or Hybrid Azure AD can securely access both on-prem and cloud resources through the ease of single sign-on or MFA.
