  • HID Global continues to streamline and improve how banks protect themselves and their customers against fraud, data breaches and unauthorised transactions.
  • Latest addition to One Time Password (OTP) family gives banks and enterprises the superior security of a hardware device along with unprecedented flexibility to personalise tokens on-site and manage all secret keys themselves.
  • ActivID Flexi Tokens are easy to integrate into HID Global’s end-to-end authentication solution, and improve user convenience and security costs by delivering one-button simplicity for up to three applications while supporting numerous compliance requirements.  

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, today expanded its broad offering of its identity assurance portfolio with the addition of the ActivID® Flexi Token.  The new solution is ideal for financial institutions and enterprises seeking a cost-effective pin pad solution with advanced security capabilities for mass deployment.  The hardware token offers a more flexible solution for graphical customisation and deployment, along with options for on-site initialisation to further protect data and enhance security programming.

“Our banking and enterprise customers now have another OTP token option as part of an end-to-end solution that delivers one of the industry’s best possible out-of-the-box experiences,” said Tim Phipps, vice president of product marketing for HID Global.  “The new tokens can be used with our ActivID authentication system without requiring equipment to be replaced or updated.  These solutions offer the flexibility to graphically customise each side of the product and initialisation at the customer premises.”

ActivID Flexi Tokens are designed to minimise an organisation’s costs for protecting data in high-volume deployments using a secure, two-factor authentication device.  The compact, streamlined tokens are easy to mail and carry, and feature an intuitive interface with icons and messages that simplify usage through visual prompts.  The token can be utilised for user authentication (OTP or challenge and response), transaction signing and host verification through a dedicated button on the device.  Supporting a broad choice of security services, standards and algorithms, the solution maximises flexibility for protecting critical data.  It also improves security while accommodating “on demand” availability requirements by enabling banks and enterprises to use own their own authentication keys or reinitialise products on-site when new keys must be issued.
