Identiv: Instilling Trust in All Connected Things Worldwide
In our increasingly connected world, governments, enterprises, commercial businesses, organizations of every size, and individuals are continually challenged to protect their physical environments and digital resources, which are vulnerable to data breaches, identity theft, fraud, counterfeiting, and other breakdowns of security.Today, the current corporate world needs a solution, fundamentally built on a single, universal identity credential, which will allow companies to trust or securely access any resource, premises, information, or everyday items. Coming to the aid of such firms and business leaders is Identiv, a leader of global security technology that provides a secure web platform that issues, manages, or revokes credentials, without the complexity and cost of internal deployments.

California-based Identiv thrives with the motto “Trust Your World”. Global government, education, retail, transportation, healthcare, and other organizations rely upon Identiv’s trust solutions to reduce risk, achieve compliance, and protect brand identity. “Our trust solutions allow people to gain access to buildings, networks, information, systems, and services, while ensuring that the physical facilities and digital assets of the organizations they interact with are protected. These solutions are implemented using standards-driven technology, such as digital certificates, strong authentication, mobility, and cloud services,”explains Jason Hart, CEO and Director of the company.

Trust Solutions for Premises, Information and Everyday Items
In today’s heightened-risk environment, there is growing concern about the gaps in security that arise from lack of coordination within an organization, such as a terminated employee whose access rights to a network are not revoked at the same time as toa building. Identiv provides customers with a complete, integrated trust solution for converged access to physical and digital resources. With Identiv’s uTrust product family, enterprises and customers are assured that products work together as a complete system and support open standards such as digital certificates. Identiv’s uTrust physical access systems integrate access control, video surveillance, intrusion detection, building management, and other network-based systems.
