Identive Selected as Access Control Standard for U.S. Federal Agency Within Department of Homeland Security

SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, Nov 19, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) (Frankfurt:INV) a provider of solutions and services for the identification, security and RFID industries, today announced that it has been selected by a U.S. federal agency within the Department of Homeland Security to implement its Hirsch-branded access control and security management systems at the agency's more than 200 locations nationwide. Identive's systems will secure entry and exit points at the agency's facilities and provide secure work environments for agency employees.

The DHS agency selected Identive based on the company's strong reputation as a provider of security solutions to the U.S. government and the fact that Identive's access control systems support simultaneous use of the wide variety of federally-issued access credentials currently in use. This includes Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards used by federal employees, Common Access Cards (CAC) used by military personnel, as well as other, agency-specific credentials. Support for the array of federal ID credentials allows the agency to become compliant with federal standards and mandates governing secure authentication and access, such as FIPS-201 and OMB M 11-11. In addition, the Identive solution is designed to allow updates and integration to additional agency and federal systems and databases as future standards and requirements emerge.

"We have collaborated with this DHS agency over the last several years to develop the right combination of software, equipment and services to address the varied requirements of their dispersed locations. The success of this effort and the trust it has engendered were key to the agency's selection of Identive's security systems nationwide. By working with Identive as their sole solutions provider, the agency will achieve higher levels of interoperability while minimizing implementation time, training requirements and total system cost," said Lars Suneborn, Director Government & Standards for Identive's Identity Management & Cloud Solutions division. "We are pleased to add this agency to the growing list of U.S. intelligence, law enforcement and diplomatic customers that have standardized on Identive's systems to protect their facilities." The Identive access control and security management systems selected by this DHS agency are marketed under the company's Hirsch brand and include Velocity(TM) management software, DIGI*TRAC(TM) controllers, and patented ScramblePad(R) readers. The systems will be delivered and installed over a four-year period through Identive's national network of channel partners.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
