IRVINE, Calif. – November 1, 201l – HID Global, trusted leader in solutions for the delivery of secure identity, today announced its OMNIKEY Device Service Provider (DSP) software for IBM Tivoli TAM enterprise single sign on (eSSO). The new solution is a software interface that enables customers to benefit from converged physical and logical access control on a single card by using their existing contactless physical access credentials in conjunction with IBM Tivoli TAM eSSO for sign on to IT networks and applications.
The OMNIKEY DSP software is certified for use with IBM Tivoli Access Manager eSSO and enables plug-and-play connectivity of HID Global’s OMNIKEY contactless readers with IBM Tivoli Service Provider Interface (SPI) for secure sign on to critical network assets.
"Contactless authentication to computer networks using the same credential for physical access is a powerful combination that delivers the highest level of convenience and security to enterprise end users," said Thomas Muth, product line manager with HID Global. "HID Global’s OMNIKEY DSP software extends the universe credentials that can be used with IBM Tivoli and OMNIKEY smart card readers, while leveraging an organization’s existing card base to offer a cost effective solution that is easy to deploy."
Supporting standard iCLASS, iCLASS SEä, HID PROX, MIFARE and other technologies for contactless sign on to IBM Tivoli, the OMNIKEY DSP software can be deployed to large networks and includes an easy-to-use graphical user interface as well as a configurable Windows Unattended Setup Installer for simple configuration, validation and implementation.
