By John Piccininni

Once again, we have confirmation that our Hirsch by Identiv U.S. government Federal Identity and Credential Access Management (FICAM) solution is the most secure, most cost-effective, fastest to authenticate, and easiest to deploy FICAM solution on the market. Government Security News (GSN) has just named Identiv as the winner in two categories and finalist in one category of the GSN Homeland Security Awards.


Identiv’s FICAM solution was selected as the winner in the “Vendors of IT Security Products and Solutions” category as “Best Physical Logical Privileged Access Management Solution” and also winner in the “Vendors of Physical Security Products and Solutions” category as “Best Access Control Hardware”.

Now in its eighth year, the GSN Awards are recognized as the gold standard of accomplishments and the “best of the best” in IT and cybersecurity, physical security products and services, and the most notable government agency programs, initiatives, and innovations.

Identiv’s end-to-end FICAM solution has been developed to address an industry-wide problem of how to implement FICAM simply and with optimal performance. Until now, FICAM solutions from other vendors have been expensive, increasingly difficult to set up, and slow to provide authentication and access at the door. Identiv’s conceptual approach to FICAM and the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201 Topology Categories addresses current PACS Infrastructure, Validation System, and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Reader and is faster and less expensive than the competition.
