HID Global has announced that its HID Mobile Access solution is one of the industry’s first mobile access offerings to be ISO 27001 certified. A widely-known and accepted international security standard, ISO 27001 serves as an information security management systems framework that specifies security best practices, establishes controls to manage risk and protects data.
“Being a pioneer of ISO 27001 certification for using mobile devices to open doors is part of the move towards mainstream adoption of HID Mobile Access,” said Hilding Arrehed, Vice President of Cloud Services, Physical Access Control Solutions with HID Global. “This prestigious certification is evidence of HID’s ongoing commitment to achieving the high standards of information security for our cloud-based services.”
HID has already been leading the industry in technology development and deployments for mobile access, powered by Seos credential technology. With the ISO certification, HID is at the forefront of standards compliance, too.
Users can rely on HID Mobile Access to securely access doors, gates, enterprise resources and more with their smartphone, tablet, wearable or other mobile devices. Plus, the solution is a linchpin for organizations seeking to integrate access control into smart building technologies and services in order to create more convenient, intuitive experiences for users.
ISO 27001 is performed by independent third-party auditors. Achieving the accredited certification provides independent, expert validation that HID maintains the confidentiality, integrity and availability of customers data in accordance with international, industry-leading security practices. ISO 27001 is supported by its code of practice for information security management, ISO/IEC 27002:2013.
