Deployment of strong authentication solutions based on the PIV and PIV-I standards are among the most effective means to protect employees, networks, systems, data and enterprise reputation.

Probaris ID™ 4.0 can also issue identities to a wide range of form factors including smart phones. The use of intelligent mobile devices to access enterprise data, services and systems is growing and changing at an unparalleled pace. Enabling the secure use of these devices has moved to the top of the agenda for IT and security professionals. Today’s cyber and physical environments require that the strongest forms of identity and authentication be used on these devices to maintain the operational efficiencies and business continuity of the enterprise, and in doing so, protect its intellectual property. Probaris ID™ 4.0 provides the enterprise with the foundational capability to build an identity, credential, access management, and security solution capable of meeting today’s complex cybersecurity challenges.
