Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, today
announced that it has teamed with Eid
Passport®, Inc., a market leader in high-assurance identity
management solutions and the largest commercial provider of vendor
credentials at military facilities, to supply Eid Passport with its ActivID®
Credential Management System (CMS) for Eid Passport’s new Personal
Identity Verification – Interoperable (PIV-I)
Eid Passport’s service is targeted at commercial, government and
military organizations that require the highest levels of identity
assurance to secure sensitive physical and logical assets. Recently, the
U.S. Navy awarded a contract to provide credentialing support for the
Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS), its contractors, vendors,
suppliers and service providers who seek entry to naval facilities. To
meet the needs of the U.S. Navy and other customers for its PIV-I
service, Eid Passport has worked with HID Advantage Partner Axiad
IDS to integrate ActivID CMS into its service for secure
provisioning of the cards.
“We look forward to working with Eid Passport, which is a Level 4 PIV-I
issuer – the highest level of identity assurance possible,” said Eric
Widlitz, managing director of Identity and Access Management, North
America with HID Global. “With the integration of HID Global’s pivCLASS
credentials and ActivID CMS with the Eid
Passport’s RAPIDGate Premier solution, Eid Passport is able to
ensure that third parties working at high-security government
installations have been thoroughly screened, vetted and issued a PIV-I
credential before they arrive on site.”
Provisioning the cards using HID Global’s ActivID CMS makes it easy to
define and apply policies to manage data, applets, and digital
certificates across the entire lifecycle of a card. ActivID CMS is
easily integrated into an existing security infrastructure, and can
scale to millions of credentials in complex, distributed environments
with multiple user groups.

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud.
With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
In this power panel at @...

We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
