HID Global Predicts Top Trends in the Identity Technology Industry


HID Global's Director of Sales, Secure Issuance for ASEAN Hary Kartono and Director of Sales - ASEAN, Physical Access Control System Alex Tan showcase Seos-powered mobile access and security issuance solutions at the International Fire and Security Exhibition and Conference (IFSEC) held today at the SMX Convention Centre in Pasay City.

HID Global forecasts a shift in the use of identity technology that will lead to increased adoption of mobile devices and the latest smart card technology, a greater emphasis and reliance on the cloud, and a radical new way of thinking of trust in smart environments and Internet of Things (IoT).

HID Global predicts that technology will transform the way trusted identities are used with smart cards, mobile devices, wearables, embedded chips and other "smart" objects, particularly in industries focused on regulatory compliance, such as government, finance and healthcare markets. This shift will precipitate the move from legacy systems to NFC, Bluetooth Low Energy and advanced smart card technology to meet the evolving needs of enterprises and governments worldwide.

This continued breakthrough in adoption of mobile identity technology continues momentum from 2016, where HID Global experienced tremendous uptick in customer deployments of its broad mobility solution with a strong pipeline of future customer installations in the works to verify identities optimized for mobile applications.

"HID Global has forecasted top trends based on our broad view of the market in close collaboration with customers and partners who are assessing and deploying innovative solutions across markets worldwide," said Stefan Widing, President and CEO of HID Global. "We have been at the forefront of major technology shifts over the years and HID Global believes 2017 will mark an important phase in the industry, as organizations seek to use the broadest range of smart devices ever. This will directly impact how customers view and use trusted identities on both mobile devices and smart cards for more activities in more connected environments in the years ahead."

HID Global is continuing to see significant trends that will influence how organizations create, manage and use trusted identities in a broad range of existing and new use cases.

Stronger adoption of mobile devices and advanced smart cards underscores the need for trusted identities

Similar to the adoption of consumer trends to IT in past years, there will be further consumerization of security, with heightened demand from users seeking to open doors, and login to cloud-based resources, as well as have personalized on-demand printing of documents, and to deploy printed credentials remotely or conduct other transactions and daily activities using trusted IDs on their phone, wearable or smart card.

Trusted IDs that integrate security, privacy and convenience will provide a new level of assurance to these applications and transactions, while being uniquely positioned to make secure access more personalized to the individual.

The industry will look towards complete identity relationship management that considers the need to grant access based on the context or circumstances for risk-appropriate authentication across trusted identities assigned to people, devices, data and things in smart offices, buildings and other environments that are becoming more connected every day.

Greater emphasis on the cloud through "hybrid" solutions that combine on-premises and the cloud to create common management platforms for digital IDs

Organizations are recognizing the interdependencies of technologies and platforms needed for business agility, cost management and providing a better user experience within a mobile workforce, or for digital commerce and relationship management that continues to require more reach, flexibility, security.

In banking, government, healthcare and other regulated markets, multi-factor authentication for physical and IT access control will have more opportunities to merge into integrated systems that will also provide a more convenient experience for users and increase security. …
