Identive Selected as Access Control Standard for U.S. Federal Agency Within Department of Homeland Security

SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, Nov. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)
-- Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) (Frankfurt:INV) a provider of
solutions and services for the identification, security and RFID
industries, today announced that it has been selected by a U.S. federal
agency within the Department of Homeland Security to implement its
Hirsch-branded access control and security management systems at the
agency's more than 200 locations nationwide. Identive's systems will
secure entry and exit points at the agency's facilities and provide
secure work environments for agency employees.

The DHS agency selected Identive based on the company's strong
reputation as a provider of security solutions to the U.S. government
and the fact that Identive's access control systems support
simultaneous use of the wide variety of federally-issued access
credentials currently in use. This includes Personal Identity
Verification (PIV) cards used by federal employees, Common Access Cards
(CAC) used by military personnel, as well as other, agency-specific
credentials. Support for the array of federal ID credentials allows the
agency to become compliant with federal standards and mandates
governing secure authentication and access, such as FIPS-201 and OMB M
11-11. In addition, the Identive solution is designed to allow updates
and integration to additional agency and federal systems and databases
as future standards and requirements emerge.

"We have collaborated with this DHS agency over the last several years
to develop the right combination of software, equipment and services to
address the varied requirements of their dispersed locations. The
success of this effort and the trust it has engendered were key to the
agency's selection of Identive's security systems nationwide. By
working with Identive as their sole solutions provider, the agency will
achieve higher levels of interoperability while minimizing
implementation time, training requirements and total system cost," said
Lars Suneborn, Director Government & Standards for Identive's Identity
Management & Cloud Solutions division. "We are pleased to add this
agency to the growing list of U.S. intelligence, law enforcement and
diplomatic customers that have standardized on Identive's systems to
protect their facilities."

The Identive access control and security management systems selected by
this DHS agency are marketed under the company's Hirsch brand and
include Velocity(TM) management software, DIGI*TRAC(TM) controllers,
and patented ScramblePad(R) readers. The systems will be delivered and
installed over a four-year period through Identive's national network
of channel partners.
