HID Global: Top Trends

HID Global has released its projections for top trends that will have the most impact on the secure identity industry in 2014. The predictions include a diverse range of solutions and technologies, including advances in physical and logical access control, secure issuance, identity assurance, visitor management, electronic ID, and secure asset tracking.

HID Global's CTO Selva Selvaratnam also expects a decline in the use of passwords for securing resources, as organizations extend strong authentication across their IT infrastructure. That will also account for the acceleration of access control convergence that will drive a more seamless user experience when securing doors, data and the cloud.
