HID Global Names Axiad IDS First North American Partner in Its Identity Assurance Implementation Partner Program

Axiad IDS, a technical consultancy and service provider is now certified to implement all HID Global Identity Assurance Solution, including Authentication Services and Smart Card solutions.

HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, has named Axiad IDS as the first North American partner in its Identity Assurance Implementation Partner Program (IPP). Through the IPP, which provides training, tools and on-going assistance to aid partners with their Professional Services engagements, Axiad IDS is now certified to deploy all HID Global Identity Assurance solutions, including ActivID CMS, 4TRESSÔ Authentication Server and pivCLASSÒ Government Solutions.

“Early on, we recognized the importance of being able to add value for our channel partners by bringing them a higher level of product knowledge and implementation experience than typical distributors,” said Bassam Al-Khalidi, principal consultant and CEO of Axiad IDS. “Identity Assurance deployments are crucial to both our reseller partners and their customers, and they can now benefit from the investment we have made in achieving IPP accreditation.”

User communities within organizations are not just internal employees, but also partners and customers, adding complexity to the integration of physical and logical security systems. Therefore strong authentication is increasingly recognized as a critical component underpinning complete security for organizations. Because these security requirements, including those driven by compliance regulations, continue to press the limits of IT resources, it is essential that organizations leverage specialists such as Axiad IDS to assist in the design, implementation and support of security and authentication projects.

As an accredited member of IPP, Axiad IDS demonstrates its knowledge of HID Global’s Identity Assurance solution portfolio, including versatile strong authentication services and smart card management solutions. In addition, Axiad IDS is a certified Train the Trainer (TTT) partner and a Value-Added Distributor of HID Global Identity Assurance products.

“We’ve worked with Axiad IDS for many years, and know firsthand their expertise in digital identity solutions for enterprise, healthcare and government organizations,” said Hilding Arrehed, director of worldwide professional services and technology partner programs, Identity Assurance, with HID Global. “With this partnership, Axiad IDS can take full advantage of our Professional Services investments in order to fulfill the identity management and authentication needs of its clients.”
