“While we are focused on being the industry's top ID products company, dealer support is also of primary importance to us,” states Kieckhafer. “We offer myriad printed and web-based marketing communications materials in addition to a host of programs for our authorized dealers. We have also increased our presence in the field with a larger direct sales force, to assist dealers in any way we can with the Brady People ID product line.”

An innovative new employee ID badge holder from the company is designed to prevent unauthorized data skimming of embedded information. The new Secure Badgeholder provides a shield against unauthorized access to contactless information stored on PIV cards, CAC cards, and other contactless smartcard applications.

Gone are the days of skimming information from contactless smart cards, according to Kieckhafer. A patent-pending rigid badge holder, the Secure Badgeholder affords privacy protection by providing a barrier to unknown or unauthorized wireless communications through the contactless interface found on many smart cards today. Secure Badgeholder is also designed to allow card reading without the need to remove the card. By squeezing the activation tabs, the card is able to communicate with a reader. As soon as the tabs are released the smart card is shielded again. The wearer controls who reads the card and when it is read.

Brady People ID's Secure Badgeholder is also designed to hold the PIV card securely in place, yet allows easy, one-handed removal of the card from the badge holder when necessary. The Secure Badgeholder protects the card and is weather- and water- resistant.
