Powered by Seos and Bluetooth Smart and NFC, HID Mobile Access functions exceedingly well on Samsung smartphones that support both communication channels
The partnership brings HID Mobile Access and Trusted Tag Services into the SEAP network

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently announced that it has been named a silver partner in the Samsung® Enterprise Alliance Program (SEAP). The partnership brings the company’s award-winning HID Mobile Access® solution for opening doors using smartphones, and HID Trusted Tag® Services that add trusted identities for everyday objects for “Internet of Things” applications, into Samsung’s extensive product sales and marketing ecosystem. 

“HID Global is pleased to be working with Samsung to offer exciting new secure identity capabilities to its smartphone customers,” said Debra Spitler, vice president, Strategic Alliances with HID Global. “Helping Samsung users transform their smartphones into trusted credentials will deliver a new era of functionality, from opening doors without needing a key or smart card, to authenticating objects in a growing range of consumer uses cases and applications.”

Powered by Seos®, HID Mobile Access makes it possible for customers to use NFC- and Bluetooth Smart-enabled Samsung Galaxy and Samsung Note smartphones to open doors by “tapping” the phone to a door reader or electronic lock. The solution also enables users to access doors and gates from a distance via Bluetooth Smart and the company’s patented “Twist and Go” gesture technology.

Samsung devices also support use of the HID Mobile Access Configuration Application that is used by system installers to quickly dial-in and optimize the read range of Bluetooth-enabled iCLASS SE® readers based on environmental conditions. The company’s mobile access solution delivers an overall user-friendly deployment experience by enabling users to quickly download the HID Mobile Access App to their Samsung smart device; administrators can also easily issue and revoke Mobile IDs via the HID Secure Identity Services™ portal.

In addition to HID Mobile Access, Samsung devices can also be used with HID Trusted Tag Services. By combining HID Trusted Tags, NFC technology and secure cloud authentication services, HID Trusted Tag Services offer the innovative capability of adding unique and trusted identities to everyday objects. These objects can be read by NFC-enabled Samsung smartphones for “proof of presence” applications, ranging from tapping a smart poster for an interactive brand experience, to verifying the visit of home health staff in a patient’s residence or confirming student attendance on college campuses. The services can also be used for brand protection and other “Internet of Things” applications.
