HID's Crescendo series of smart cards are a convergent solution that provides both a physical access solution as well as a range of logical access possibilities across the enterprise. Supporting both operations using a contact smart chip along with additional contactless technologies, Crescendo cards can be seamlessly employed for multiple applications, enhancing their value as a well-integrated and scalable solution to every need for asset access control and user authentication within your organization.
For physical access applications, multiple standards are supported, including iCLASS, iCLASS SE, and MIFARE DESFire EV1. Additionally, Crescendo cards are compatible with the latest technologies like Security Identity Objects (SIO), for enhanced security and data integrity. SIO supports a multi-layered security model, which enables a higher level of protection and privacy than previously possible.
Crescendo cards also offer a wide range of applications in the realm of logical access control, from VPN and Windows domain log-in using PKI authentication, to pre-boot authentication, cloud service authentication, single sign-on, document and email signing, and file or disk encryption.
As an off-the-shelf solution, the Crescendo line of cards allows for lower overhead and flexible operation within the needs of an organization of any size. Highly customizable, Crescendo cards' appearance can be fully modified and tailored to every company's needs, and can include name and ID, allowing them to serve as a fully functional employee identification within your organization.
Crescendo Series Smart Cards support multiple anti-counterfeiting features, like surface or embedded holograms, micro-fine text, or Optically Variable Inks. In addition, HID's Secure Identity Services allows you to leverage the leading expertise and capabilities of HID during the card layout and construction phase, reducing costs and potential problems for an even better experience.
