Identiv’s uTrust TS Cards: Meet the Next Generation of High-Security Credentials for Access Control

By Stephane Ardiley

Yesterday, we announced our new uTrust TS Cards, high-frequency 13.56 MHz credentials using NXP® MIFARE® DESFire® EV1 technology.


Identiv’s uTrust TS Cards deliver increased security at a competitive price, with the excellent compatibility, service, and quality standards that have made our card offerings so popular.

uTrust TS Cards are just what you need to provide your customers an alternative to the expensive, proprietary contactless smart cards offered by others, while offering the following benefits:

  • A Secure Card Platform — While basic proximity cards have served the industry well for 30 years, their time has passed. Proximity cards are too easily duplicated, either by malicious cloning or by any of the dozens of card manufacturers. uTrust TS Cards deliver maximum protection of PACS data using a cryptographic engine.
  • A Standards-Based Card Platform — Other companies provide proprietary encryption protocols that only they vet and protect. But uTrust TS Cards are based on the open and widely deployed MIFARE DESFire platform, which carries Common Criteria certification and is recognized by IT organizations as the highest level of security attestation.
  • Migration Support/Multi-Technology — Identiv’s uTrust TS Cards come in two types: uTrust TS Standard Cards (for new installations) and uTrust TS Migration Cards (which include 125 kHz proximity technology that interoperates seamlessly with existing 125 kHz proximity readers).
  • Forward-Looking Solution — Ideal for corporations looking to rebadge just one time and reduce PACS investments moving forward.
  • Competitive Pricing — As anNXP® Premium Partner, Identiv’s multi-technology uTrust TS Cards are priced below other third-party, low-frequency proximity cards.
  • Compatibility —Identiv’s uTrust TS Cards are compatible with uTrust TS Readers, including ScramblePad, making system design and ordering simple, and system deployment fast and easy.
  • Differentiated — Outclass your competitors and let them fight it out by undercutting each other. Identiv’s products are sold only through our authorized reseller network, differentiating your proposals and preserving your margins.
  • Fast Delivery, Prompt Customer Service — Identiv’s uTrust TS Cards are produced and encoded at our Santa Ana, California facility and are generally delivered within 48 hours of receipt of a valid order. Every order receives prompt, professional customer service from the Identiv team.
