FREMONT, Calif., July 9, 2014 – Identiv (NASDAQ: INVE), a global security technology company that provides trust solutions for premises, information, and everyday items, today announced that the General Services Administration (GSA) lab, which is part of the Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) Testing Program, recently evaluated and passed Identiv’s Physical Access Control System (PACS) solution. As a result, the PACS solution is now included on FICAM’s Approved Products List (APL).
The solution pairs Identiv's Velocity 3.5 Security Management System with the MX Controller to provide HSPD-12 end-to-end compliance. This represents the first in a series of Identiv’s planned investments in the FICAM arena, consolidating its commitment to the U.S. federal government, high-security access control, and robust cryptography utilization within Identiv's Premises Access products.
“We are very excited to be included on FICAM’s Approved Products List, demonstrating an ongoing commitment to our U.S. government customers. By supporting the latest security standards, our solutions ultimately benefit all customers,” said Jason Hart, Identiv CEO. “Physical access is moving away from insecure legacy technologies and towards strong authentication technologies, such as PKI at the door, that can also authenticate users to information systems – in other words, converged access. Identiv is leading this transition with innovative solutions, like our cloud-based idOnDemand-managed service that dramatically simplifies certificate-based credential issuance, deployment, and management.”
The FICAM Testing Program (formerly the FIPS 201 EP) provides a comprehensive evaluation capability to support the selection and procurement of qualified products and services for the implementation of a federated and interoperable FICAM segment architecture. GSA is responsible for both the FICAM initiative and the tools and programs related to the federal acquisition process. These responsibilities uniquely position GSA to provide testing services related to acquiring products and services for FICAM implementation.
