pivCLASS® Government Solutions
The portfolio of HID Global Government Solutions pivCLASS® is a broad family of products that makes it easier for contractors of the Federal Government of the United States, government contractors and other facilities to meet the requirements of safety standards and implement its card of Personal Identity Verification (PIV) and other smart cards for physical access control, resulting in compliance, interoperability and high security.
The solutions of the pivCLASS® smart card allow government agencies to do the verification of personal identity (activate their existing physical access control systems (PACS) without having to "rip and replace" existing infrastructure). The pivCLASS® modular approach (fully tested, validated and approved by the government) maintains investments, reduce costs and eliminates the complexity, making it easy and affordable to purchase, install and maintain systems for physical access control compliant with FIPS 201.
Providing pre-configured government solutions fully tested and validated from a single trusted source, pivCLASS® authenticates the PIV cards across the range of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) (required safety levels).
