HID Crescendo authenticators provide organisations with high assurance digital credentials by leveraging certified cryptography in accordance with NIST high authenticator assurance level SP800-63 IAL2 / IAL3. A strong identity is the foundation of zero trust security and helps organisations protect personal and corporate data as well as meet regulatory requirements.
Crescendo smartcards, which serve as an employee visual ID corporate badge, can be used for workstation logon, network access, email and document signing and encryption. In addition to smartcards, other form factors are available including smart usb keys. Crescendo authenticators implement multiple protocols including fido2, piv/pki and oath to ensure interoperability with the widest range of applications.
Crescendo authenticators can be used by themselves and can also be managed by hid’s solutions, for organisations deploying security at scale.
The right choice of credential for your workplace can minimise costly implementation issues and streamline user experience. No two organisations work the same way. Understanding how and where you’ll need to secure access and protect your enterprise data is key when deciding which credential option is best.
When protecting sensitive information is a major concern, you’ll need credential options that provide dual encryption and authentication functionality. HID Crescendo Smart Cards and USB Keys deliver versatility and security across both cyber and physical use cases and access.
