Gallagher Releases Latest Mobile Security Technology
GALLAGHER has released of its latest state-of-the-art mobile security solution: Gallagher Mobile Connect. Harnessing Bluetooth wireless technology and the power of smart phones, Mobile Connect transforms a mobile phone in to an access device – empowering businesses to use mobile technology in place of traditional access cards.
Partnering with Nok Nok Labs and the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance, Gallagher’s unique Mobile Connect solution uses FIDO certified authentication to deliver exceptionally safe and secure credentials.
“Mobile Connect really brings the best of both worlds to the market,” said Steve Bell, chief technology officer at Gallagher. “It makes access simpler and easier for users while operating on highly-secure, cutting-edge
FIDO protocols that give businesses supreme confidence in their security.”
Delivering more than just peace-of-mind, Gallagher’s new mobile solution significantly reduces costs and simplifies administration through a range of exclusive features. In addition to eliminating the costs of
supplying and replacing access cards, Mobile Connect customers will enjoy a unique subscription model, which allows for credentials to be transferred between users and reissued to devices.
Using 2-step remote provisioning, Mobile Connect delivers secure enrolment by sending an email invitation with SMS code to verify the user and mobile device. This creates further administration efficiencies by
removing the need to physically deliver an access card.
Optional two-factor authentication, either PIN or biometric, provides added security and flexibility for sites using Mobile Connect.
“We’re thrilled with this latest release in our mobile technology development program and the simplicity it brings to our customers. Our goal is always to develop simple solutions underpinned by the strongest security,
and that’s what we’ve achieved here,” said Bell. ♦
