Following on from its Innovation Trophy at the Expoprotection fair with its Architect® range of modular readers, STid has won the “Think Outside the Box” award with its new mobile access control solution - STid Mobile ID®.
A panel of 7 industry representatives - experts, journalists and users - selected STid Mobile ID® from a broad field of entrants. The award honors STid for its innovative response to growing mobility issues for business, government and industry.
STid is a trailblazing market-leader in the design of high-security solutions and is now reinventing access control to make it more intuitive and easier to use, by replacing ID cards with a mobile phone. “You may have a technically faultless solution, but if it is not understood or accepted by users, it will never be rolled out widely,” explains Maé Tholoniat, STid Product Manager.
STid is getting ahead of the game once again by developing new identification methods and successfully using RFID/NFC/Bluetooth® Smart technologies. “You can now use your smartphone to get into your office, simply by tapping your phone in your pocket or by using a hands-free function to open a door without even taking your smartphone out of your bag,” adds a member of the award panel.
STid is the first RFID manufacturer to have been awarded First Level Security Certification (ANSSI), and offers unique know-how and technological and security expertise throughout the value chain - virtual or physical badges, readers and systems. STid Mobile ID® is built on certified strong authentication methods for data protection, giving an unprecedented level of security.
Combined with the multi-technology Architect® Blue readers, the mobile solution allows users to carry on using traditional access passes at the same time, making it easier to roll out a gradual switchover to virtual badges on smartphones.
“In our mobile, connected society, data protection has become a priority. STid is leveraging the benefits of smartphones to improve and simplify user experience. This latest award is recognition of our ability to look ahead to future needs and confirms the growing interest in our mobile access control solution,” concludes Vincent Dupart, STid CEO.
