FREMONT, Calif., March 27, 2020 — Identiv, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE) today announced its Freedom Access Control system earned a Gold 2020 Govies Award in the Access Control Devices/Peripherals category. The awards honor outstanding government security products in a variety of categories, ranging from access control, to artificial intelligence, to risk analysis and beyond.
“The strength of a frictionless, software-defined physical security perimeter eliminates complex control panel configurations and replaces them with technology that communicates over encrypted IP-network protocols,” said Scott Sieracki, Identiv VP Sales. “Freedom Access Control is highly secure, reliable, and uses advanced encryption technology to eradicate security vulnerabilities. That’s something we can’t do without when it comes to protecting our nation.”
Identiv’s Freedom Access Control system uses encryption bridges at the network edge to communicate with onsite and geo-distributed software. It’s based on a software-defined architecture (SDA) that advances and leverages powerful web-scale-based applications. SDA makes it possible to change the underlying software easily without affecting the rest of the system. SDA aligns with migration from hardware-driven to containerized software-driven architectures embraced by IT departments and IT infrastructure providers and the current trend to leverage the Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), mobility, and cloud.
With Freedom Access Control, centralized databases can operate independently or be connected to an identity management system (IDMS) such as Active Directory, unifying physical access control and logical security management within the IT infrastructure. Its open-platform design enables rapid and cost-efficient integration to any relevant infrastructure. The system is accessible anytime and anywhere — system managers can monitor and grant access 24/7 via any web browser. Freedom is fully Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management (FICAM), FIPS-201 standard, and HSPD-12 initiative compliant.
Security Today magazine and securitytoday.com’s 2020 Govies Government Security Awards honor outstanding government security products in a variety of categories. An independent panel of judges from the security industry selected the top entries based on features, innovation, user-friendliness, interoperability, quality, design, market opportunity, and impact in the security industry, technical advances, and scalability.
