FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identiv, Inc. (NASDAQ:INVE) today announced that its award-winning Hirsch government Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) solution, developed to implement a simple, affordable FICAM-compliant solution simply with optimal performance, has been selected by American Security Today as platinum winner for Best Integrated System for HSPD-12 and FIPS 201 Compliance in this year's ASTORS Homeland Security Awards. The annual competition recognizes the most distinguished vendors in physical, IT, cyber, port of entry security, law enforcement, first responders, perimeter protection, communications, as well as the federal, state, county, and municipal government agencies in acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to keep our country safe. "Long known as the premier provider of access control and security management systems for government agencies and facilities, our Hirsch government team has applied the expertise built over the years to our Velocity-based FICAM-compliant solution," said Steve Humphreys, Identiv CEO. "Any of the thousands of doors or portals our systems control in the government space can be easily upgraded to FICAM compliance without the cost and hassle of a forklift replacement, as we leverage virtually all of the existing Hirsch system infrastructure. Those sites needing to replace non-compliant systems will also find our solution extremely cost-effective and quick to deploy, as we don't rely on third-party certificate processing hardware like so many others. Being recognized by American Security Today only further reinforces the need for complete, secure, cost-effective solution for FICAM compliance." Identiv's end-to-end FICAM solution has been developed to address an industry-wide problem of how to implement FICAM simply and with optimal performance. Until now, FICAM solutions from other vendors have been expensive, increasingly difficult to set up, and slow to provide authentication and access at the door. Identiv's conceptual approach to FICAM and the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201 Topology Categories addresses current PACS Infrastructure, Validation System, and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Reader and is faster and less expensive than the competition.

The 2016 ASTORS Homeland Security Award winners were recognized during ISC East at the Javits Center in New York on November 16 and 17, 2016.
