Over 2 billion things that need to be identified, verified and tracked are connected through HID’s technology.

Protecting people, places, and things
HID Global is passionate about helping people use a verified, trusted identity to make it more convenient and safer for them to get to where they need to go and achieve what they want to do in everyday life. People use HID products to open doors, access digital networks, personalize badges, verify transactions, find information, track assets and connect with others, ensuring their identities are seamlessly accepted, anywhere, anytime. With HID’s trusted identity solutions, people get effortless and worry-free identity verification experiences with only a tap, twist, tag, push, swipe, or simply through the proximity of their chosen device.
HID Global also secures places of all kinds to make life better for their occupants and visitors. Access to secure physical and digital places is a vital assurance provided by HID in an increasingly insecure and dynamic world. The company also optimizes places with efficiency-boosting and productivity-enhancing capabilities. “We put power back into the hands of people – they say from HID – to manage, measure and maximize the trust they have in a location and in its occupants, to cultivate more freedom for people to move, interact and feel safe”. Places are secured and optimized by HID’s broad range of physical access products (smart cards, mobile IDs and readers), ID personalization, identity & access management solutions, beacons, cloud services, government-to-citizen IDs, embedded solutions and RFID-based, IoT-connected identification technologies.
HID Global connects things and makes it easy to identify, verify and track them, increasingly important in an era of a rising Internet of Things (IoT): not only do people use things all day long, but things (devices or machines) are increasingly communicating with other things directly and without any human involvement. HID’s innovative products, including RFID and active low-energy Bluetooth, identify and ensure that things and the people and applications relying on them are connected and communicating with each other. “We are exploring – they continue – new ways to add digital capabilities to a virtually limitless list of things, from assembly line objects and production robots to clothes, fire extinguishers, industrial laundry equipment, posters and even life-jackets, and delivering trust and peace of mind to the businesses that rely on us”.
