SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, Aug. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) (Frankfurt:INV), a provider of solutions and services for the identification, security and RFID industries, has expanded the implementation of its HIRSCH access control system at San Diego International Airport to provide integrated physical access and security for the airport's newly redesigned Terminal 2, known as the 'Green Build.'"Since its first installation 15 years ago, the HIRSCH access control system has grown with the airport and met our evolving security and performance needs," said Clint Welch, Aviation Security Manager for San Diego International Airport. "The Green Build further increases our capacity, but also raises the number of personnel supporting our passengers and airlines. In any airport, safety is a high priority and entry points are a critical area of vulnerability. Our expanded access control system provides the integrated control and visibility we need to ensure the security of our facility and the people in it." "San Diego is one of more than a dozen general aviation airports in the U.S. for which Identive is providing integrated physical access and security," said Stephen Healy, Executive Vice President Access Control & Security for Identive. "We value our long-term relationship with the San Diego International Airport and are proud to be a trusted partner in this next phase of its growth. With the expansion of its access control system from Identive, the San Diego airport can implement enhanced security practices including high assurance identity verification (PKI+PIN+BIO), authentication and registration of presence, consolidated incident data review and access authorization. The Critical Infrastructure/Transportation market is just one of the many applications where our HIRSCH access control solution is being deployed outside the US Government space."
