Identiv Announces U.S. Government Certification of uTrust TS Government Readers for Premises Access

FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identiv, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE), a global security technology company that provides trusted identity solutions for premises, information, and everyday items, today announced that Identiv's uTrust TS Government Readers for premises access are now included on the U.S. government's FICAM Approved Products List (APL). The General Services Administration (GSA) lab, which is part of the Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) Testing Program, has evaluated and approved Identiv's uTrust TS Government Readers.

Identiv's uTrust TS Government Reader is specifically designed for U.S. government customers to support any existing building access system (such as Identiv, Lenel, AMAG, Honeywell, or Software House) and provide a forward path to FICAM compliance. Featuring high security with an inbuilt secure processor certified to the highest standards (EAL 6+), uTrust TS Readers support all major commercial and government access credentials, including U.S. government PIV, PIV-I, and CAC. Multiple form factors are available, including mullion and wall mount, with an upcoming keypad model.

Offering a seamless transition to standards-based network cabling, uTrust TS Readers support simultaneous Wiegand, RS485, and Ethernet communication. Four independent processors combine to deliver the fastest building entry transaction times, speeding access and reducing user frustration. One reader can be used at all building access points, delivering secure, future-proof access, while simplifying purchasing and reducing deployment and management costs.

"The uTrust TS Government Reader delivers a single cost-effective reader that supports all existing access systems and all major credential types, providing a clear path to a standards-based FICAM solution and migration to network cabling," said Jason Hart, Identiv CEO. "Identiv Channel Alliance Network partners are able to deliver a product from an American company to 100% of the U.S. government marketplace, giving customers a cost-effective solution for over 150,000 access points across all U.S. government buildings, recently mandated to adopt FICAM standards. uTrust TS Government Readers are available now and have already shipped to U.S. government customers."

Identiv's uTrust TS family of connected premises readers utilizes open, secure standards and a flexible, updatable platform design to support a broad range of access card technologies from proximity to public key infrastructure (PKI) at the door. Identiv's uTrust TS Readers enable agencies to support existing access systems and migrate to a secure U.S. government FICAM solution at a fraction of the cost of other competitive solutions.

uTrust TS Readers are available immediately through the Identiv Channel Alliance Network (ICAN) Global Partner Program and to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partners through the uTrust Technology Partnership Program.
