Provider of secure virtual and mobile credential solutions, Safetrust, has revealed the new integration of an employee badge in Apple Wallet.
This integration gives businesses the ability to provide a secure and efficient way to access buildings, elevators and other amenities without traditional physical badges, the company says.
Utilizing an iPhone or Apple Watch near a Safetrust IoT Sensor, individuals can unlock doors, trigger printing, access vending machines and more.
Safetrust highlights that its approach is built on an open data model, enabling customers to employ credentials across different vendors.
It includes customer key management, allowing independent encryption key control.
Moreover, its online functionality facilitates the utilization of multiple keysets and key management, accompanied by auditing and event monitoring to track credential usage across various access points such as doors, printers, kiosks and rooms.
The company claims that a distinctive feature of its offering is customers maintain ownership of their keys, permitting key exchange with vendors of their choice.
This solution further supports multi-vendor compatibility, reducing deployment costs using a single credential with numerous vendors’ readers.
“Partnering with Apple over the past several years, starting with their Apple Value-Added Services (VAS) program and now extending to their Apple Access program, has been incredibly rewarding,” said Jason Hart, Founder and CEO of Safetrust.
“We are delighted to provide our customers with a versatile mobile access solution, offering a range of convenient options.
“Whether it’s near field communication (NFC) credentials, Bluetooth low energy (BLE), traditional cards or a hybrid approach, our customers now have the flexibility to choose according to their preferences.
“At Safetrust, we take pride in supporting this diverse array of credentials, demonstrating our commitment to catering to our customer’s evolving needs.”
Safetrust’s mobile credential solution also includes a rich software development kit (SDK) integration for embedding Apple Wallet into custom applications and a robust connector infrastructure for onboarding and offboarding via IT, HR and access control systems.
