Identive wins order to support electronic ID card program in Middle East

Jan 21, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Identive Group, Inc., a provider of solutions and services for the identification, security and RFID industries, has received an order for more than 300,000 SCR3310v2 smart card readers to support a national electronic ID card program in the Middle East. The order is expected to be shipped during the first quarter of 2013.

Identive's smart card readers will be used by citizens to enable secure access to eGovernment and eAdministration applications, as well as to digitally sign documents, the company said.

"Around the world many countries are in the process of implementing electronic identity card programs in order to decrease identity fraud, manage access to public services online and at the same time reduce administrative costs. We are pleased that Identive smart card readers have been selected to support this customer's national eID program and to help both the government and its citizens to experience the full benefits of electronic IDs," said Dr Manfred Mueller, executive vice president and COO identification products for Identive.

"In addition to providing secure online authentication, eID programs enable delivery of government services in less time and with more convenience, as online forms can be filed from home and processed more quickly. Identive's years of experience supporting secure identification projects together with our understanding of the unique needs of government customers makes us a preferred partner for such projects," added Dr Mueller.
