Add Extended Durability with Evolis Card Lamination Module

Monday, December 4th, 2017

Developed by Evolis, the CLM (Card Lamination Module) is associated with the Evolis Primacy printer and is an all-in-one system for printing, encoding, and laminating cards that need to be secure and/or protected.

Easy to use

The CLM module is easy to use and can be used in a standalone mode or associated with a Primacy card printer.

Protect your cards

The CLM is the ideal module to laminate ID cards. The cards made can be used for up to 10 years.

Plug & play consumables

The installation of the ribbons is really intuitive and all laminates are automatically recognized by the CLM and Primacy :

  • ribbons are made with colors mandrels
  • a sound is clearly audible when you plug the ribbon
  • laminates are automatically recognized thanks to RFID chip

Wide choice of laminates

Evolis has a wide range of patches and laminates, with or without holograms. All of our patches and varnishes are high capacity and offer great system autonomy:

Announcing the Magicard Rio Pro 360 Now Available!

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Rio Pro 360, Magicard’s latest innovation for ID issuance, now available in July 2018.

The Rio Pro 360 is an evolution of Magicard’s well-established Rio Pro platform. The new ID card printer features faster print speed, increased capacity and improved print quality. The 360 also has the all new ‘LYNK’ on-board intelligence – an embedded Linux-based CPU – that enables seamless communication and the secure processing of ID data.

The Rio Pro 360 is Magicard’s fastest ID printer to date. The entirely new electronics and software platform has enabled significant performance improvements. From the moment you hit print, the 360 instantaneously gets to work. Full color cards with HoloKote® can now print in 18 seconds click-to-card.

The LYNK on-board CPU has a wider color spectrum to choose from. This means the Rio Pro 360 can create even more vibrant and color rich prints – which on an ID card means a truer representation of the subject. LYNK recognizes USB & Ethernet and can easily be integrated with most third-party applications locally or in the cloud. WiFi connectivity will be available.

Like its predecessor, the Rio Pro 360 can print an anti-fraud customized secure watermark on every card. LYNK now enables the secure online delivery of bespoke HoloKote® watermarks to the printer.  Where previously only one custom HoloKote design was available per printer, now users can store up to ten.

The LYNK onboard CPU is an industry first and we’re excited to see how this helps create more customized secure ID solutions, as it effectively means the printer has a brain on-board. The 360, with its encryption capabilities and secure watermark feature, will help achieve the mission of enhancing trust in identity worldwide. Inquire for more information as updates on the new model become available in 2018!

Transition from Prox to SEOS to keep your facility secure

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

Within the security industry, it is widely accepted that low frequency Prox no longer provides sufficient protection to anyone using this legacy technology for to insure a secure facility. There are a number of simple ways to begin the transition from an IT planning perspective. You can start by conveniently and gradually replacing existing readers as time and budget allow. This will insure you have the infrastructure in place to support the new credentials so that after the transition is complete, enhanced security, privacy and functionality are realized for IT and your users. Additionally with triple tech smart cards organizations can support up to three technologies including HID Prox, iCLASS® and SEOS technologies on a single advanced credential.

In addition to physical access applications, this multi-technology offers convenience beyond the door with a robust access control solution that supports secure, private network access via one-time-password (OTP). This is compatible with new BlueTooth technologies in addition to mobile applications for door access, computer logon, remote check in and more.

BENEFITS

  • Upgrade Your Card Readers While Still Using iCLASS, iCLASS SE® and Prox Elements.
  • Take full advantage of new smartphone technology.
  • Seamlessly upgrade to a higher standard of security and functionality.
  • Manage a one card credential solution instead of three separate cards.
HID Global’s iCLASS® Seos®/ iCLASS®/ Prox triple technology smart card is interoperable with all iCLASS, iCLASS SE® and Prox readers, thus allowing clients to keep their existing system in place during their upgrade.

How New Bluetooth Readers can improve operations

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Improve Operations Using Smart Readers to Authenticate, Identify, and Control Access to Information using Prox, Contactless and Bluetooth ALL-IN-ONE

AdvantIDge introduces the new pcProx® Plus BLE, a dual frequency programmable card reader with Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) technology that reads proximity contactless smart cards and Bluetooth-enabled devices ALL in one reader. Using either an employee badge or a Bluetooth® enabled device such as smartphones, tablets or beacons, medical staff can quickly authenticate to access critical information, manage staff attendance, control access to medication, locate equipment, confirm proper room temperature and more.

You can quickly determine the location of equipment such as laptops, firearms, wheelchairs or even the location of key medical personnel. Control access to ePrescribe applications with multi-factor authentication, enable single sign-on or fast attendance tracking, and even find the nearest secure printer – all this using pcProx® Plus BLE reader as part of your application.

The latest dual frequency reader is the next evolution in identification and access control, allowing healthcare staff to access and authenticate critical information using smartphones and tablets along with traditional employee badges.

 

Applications

• Staff authentication and single sign-on

• Pharmaceutical inventory control
• Healthcare “find me” demand printing

• Asset location tracking
• Structured access to patient data – HIPAA
• Controlled medication kits, trays and cabinets management

 

Use Cases

• Instant identification and authentication using either your mobile device or employee ID badge
• Mix and match pcProx Plus and pcProx Plus BLE readers in the same system
• Find the nearest or best multi-function printer leveraging mobile phone and printers with BLE readers
• Beacon sends room temperature data to backend network via the pcProx Plus BLE
• Use Bluetooth device and ID badge with Bluetooth reader for two-factor authentication

 

Add Even More Capability to Your Facility Access and Control Reader-Based Systems:

Staff now has access to better information when a solution brings together pcProx Plus BLE readers, beacons for tracking items such as wheelchairs or IV poles as they are moved throughout a hospital, applications for tracking or locationing, and the backend network.

Think of the nurse who taps her ID badge at the Bluetooth reader which is connected via USB to the computer. That same Bluetooth reader enables the capture of additional information from beacons, mobile phones or badges to be passed, almost as a gateway, to the backend network. More information is collected for better decision-making and workflow improvement. One reader does it all. And the best news is the new pcProx Plus BLE readers integrate into existing pcProx Plus reader-based systems, so the migration path is smooth.

To support the growing needs of corporate enterprise, healthcare, and education applications, the latest release provides the ability to manage all keys within a Seos credential. This includes ADF keys used to modify the contents of an application on a Seos card, and GDF keys, used to define the location of each application and add/remove the application from the credential. Asure ID users are now able to select between HID Elite ™ and user defined keys.

New Asure ID Capabilities:

Additionally, the new Asure ID 7.7.3 capabilities increase administrator efficiency and create greater ease of use, strengthening HID Global’s card personalization offerings. Updates include the following:
• Manage the iCLASS SE Encoder directly using the Asure ID SDK
• Users can now utilize HID Elite keys for their MIFARE DESFire EV1 access control data
• Ability to Live LinkTM a Date Field in order to record the print date in an external data source
• Asure ID installation package reduced to under 70MB speeding up the overall installation process
• Supports latest iteration of the FARGO HDP8500 Laser Engraver for the ultimate in visual security

HID Global encourages all current owners of Asure ID to download and install the latest update (Asure ID version 7.7.3), which is available at no charge to current Asure ID 7 users. This update can be easily applied from within the application by clicking Options > Resources > Check For Updates.
Please note that to take advantage of the Seos enhancements the user will need to update their SE Encoder as well.

For additional support or upgrades of your existing version to access the latest features, please contact us to request a support plan.

Understanding compliance for NIST SP800-171

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

In today’s world of technology, the need for strong security measures to protect sensitive government data from hackers has never been a higher priority. To address this issue, the Department of Commerce National Institute of Standards and Technology has released NIST Special Publication 800-171, Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Non-Federal Information Systems and Organizations. Any contractor to governmental agencies is directly impacted by SP800-171 with the implementation deadline of December 31, 2017.

Implementing the correct security and data protection processes, and deploying security technologies such as Authentication, Privileged Access Management and others has become increasingly complex. We can help manage the complexity of this mandate for you so you can continue to do business with the Government. Our ability to provide a comprehensive solution across different populations within the enterprise ensures organizations realize significant operational cost savings, a simplified user experience for both employees and customers, as well as greatly improved security and compliance.

NIST SP800-171 requirements demand rigorous access control. Non-compliance presents serious consequences for contractors, including legal action by the government and termination as a contractor. One of the most popular solutions includes HID ActivID ActivClient but this is just one piece of the puzzle.

You can request a complete eBook available upon request that focuses on some of the most complicated parts of the mandate – and how multi-factor authentication (MFA) and Privileged Access Management (PAM) offer a comprehensive but cost-effective path to complying with these aspects of NIST SP800-171. Please contact us today for a complete copy of this documentation, attend an informative webinar reviewing these requirements or a request a brief consultation from our experienced team of security experts to be sure you stay compliant.

Protect Your Printer with a Carrying Case

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

Making an investment in an ID badge printer can be a pretty large expense, even for a large organization. Some organizations, especially school photographers and events management companies, have to travel with the card printers as well, and they need to protect their investment. Wanting to be sure that your company’s hard earned dollars get the mileage they deserve is an easy decision. One affordable way to do just that, especially when travel is part of a printer’s every day life, is to get a protective carrying case. This affordable solution replaces the printer’s original box with a reusable container made to stand up to normal wear and tear for the long term and keep the printer inside safe from the unexpected.

There are two primary types of carrying cases.

Soft Carrying CaseSoft Case:

Soft cases typically have handles and pouches on the outside and perfect for hand transport to sites. They’ll keep your printer safe from scuffs and bumps as you get it to location and make sure everything you’ll need goes along for the ride. There’s usually room for the power cord, a USB cord, some cards and even sometimes an extra ribbon in additional pockets.

Hard Case:

These are used to shipping and other longer, unattended transport. The are made from a heavy plastic outer casing with custom cut foam on the insides made to hold the printer and extras in place. Even though they are large and difficult to move themselves, they are perfect for withstand the repeated rigors of shipping services, ground or air. If your printer is going long distances a hard case is a must have.

If your ID printing application doesn’t just stay in one place you need to consider a way to protect your investment. Contact the experts at AdvantIDge and we’ll help you figure out what solution is right for you.

Today, businesses of all sizes choose AdvantIDge because our ID card systems deliver guaranteed reliability with personal attention from qualified account managers.
