Identive Expands Government Solutions Team

With the increasing importance in the Federal space on building lasting solutions that are trusted, compliant and that deliver results, Identive is continuing to invest in our Government Solutions business by expanding the depth and breadth of our Government Solutions Team.

Identive’s Government Solutions Team is a group of proven subject matter experts with the primary goal of serving the role of trusted advisor to our government partners, clients and colleagues in the complex areas of physical, logical, data and cyber security.

“Our mission is to aid our clients with developing simple, elegant solutions to meet evolving security and business challenges by helping them navigate the complicated world of Federal regulations, mandates and standards,” says Scott Elliott; Director of Government Solutions for Identive.

In addition to addressing mandated security requirements such as those surrounding HSPD-12, including FICAM, FIPS-201, FISMA and similar standards, the Government Solutions Team assists our clients with mitigating risk and solving other underlying but important business challenges.

“With the addition of Rich Anderson and Jeff Ogborn, the Identive Government Team of subject matter experts is well prepared to continue developing and delivering relevant solutions to support the diverse security missions of our worldwide government clients in the Civilian, Intelligence, Diplomatic and Defense communities. I’m privileged to have them on the team,” says Elliot.
