HID WorkforceID Cloud Platform Streamlines Secure Digital Workflows
HID Global reports its new WorkforceID can enable a seamless experience when using identity credentials to access physical and digital workplaces at an office, in the field or on the road.
The ISO27001-certified identity Cloud service platform simplifies how employees access what they need to do their jobs, while solving workplace and visitor security, regulatory compliance and a variety of new business challenges as employees are returning to work, according to an announcement.
WorkforceID inherits the best capabilities from the enterprise-grade HID SAFE physical identity access and visitor management software, and combines them with deep customer insights from over 250 organizations around the world. The platform offers a completely digital and turnkey deployment for administrators, and removes the complexity of installing, configuring and supporting on-premise software.
For employees, contractors and visitors, it provides a convenient user experience with several streamlined digital workflows, such visitor self-check-in and rules-based access to buildings and IT resources according to employees’ modified work schedules.
The platform enables organizations to unify, automate and simplify identity issuance and management at a single facility or across any number of distributed office or remote work locations, according to the company. Its first 2 available services are employee ID badging and visitor management:
Credential Manager and ID Badge Issuance: Automates badging across the identity lifecycle including Cloud-based onboarding, card printing and offboarding. Administrators know the details of all active credentials, at any location.
Visitor Manager: Improves the visitor experience through reduced wait times and the ability to use self-service badging kiosks. Administrators can customize the visitor experience and security measures while benefitting from automated policy compliance.
“WorkforceID solves many of today’s identity management challenges and will also offer unique services to address evolving and specialized work environments, from expediting hospital visits and healthcare worker onboarding to accelerating workplace security audits,” says Brad Jarvis, vice president and managing director of the Identity & Access Management Solutions (IAMS) with HID Global.
