PLEASANTON, Calif. and CANBERRA, Australia, Feb. 29, 2012 (GLOBE
NEWSWIRE) -- idOnDemand, the pioneer in smart identification and a
business unit of Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) (Frankfurt:INV),
and Fuji Xerox Australia have formed an OEM partnership in which Fuji
Xerox has incorporated idOnDemand's highly secure identity readers into
their multifunction devices (MFD) for secure copying and printing.
idOnDemand's TouchSecure(TM) readers enable Fuji Xerox to offer its
customers a converged access solution that allows employees to use a
single identity card to enter the workplace and to use shared secured
multifunctional copiers and printers across an organization's physical
Fuji Xerox's secured access multifunction devices are used by a wide
range of customers to control and track printing expenses, reduce waste
and safeguard data in shared resource environments. To print or copy a
document, a user simply presents an ID card to the device for
authorization. idOnDemand's TouchSecure reader replaces the need to use
a dedicated card or token to access a secured multifunction device, as
its unique technology makes it capable of reading a wide variety of ID
and building access cards, so the same access card that unlocks the
door of the building can be used to print or copy documents.
"idOnDemand's innovative reader design, which is based on the
convergence of secure IT open platforms and physical access
compatibility, directly aligns with our product portfolio," says Adrian
Halliday, Market Development Manager at Fuji Xerox Australia. "The
TouchSecure readers provide a logical extension to our product offering
and help us meet the ever-growing demands of our customers. Many of our
customers are demanding secure MFD access across all their sites, but
differing card formats have historically prevented the use of a single
reader or staff ID card."
Card technologies and formats supported by the TouchSecure reader
include proximity - 125 kHz (all major building access formats), NXP
MIFARE(R) CSN and ISO 15693 CSN. The TouchSecure reader is based on
international standards including ISO14443A/B and PLAID, which
guarantees an open and interoperable platform design that supports
current and future chip technologies and card formats.
"Fuji Xerox has consistently delivered innovative solutions that help
customers streamline business processes," states Craig Parker, APAC
Vice President Sales at idOnDemand. "They continue to demonstrate a
focus on leveraging base systems to simplify user experience and
leverage information. We are gratified to partner with Fuji Xerox to
help them expand their integration to include their customer's building
access technologies and offer their customers even more value."
