Identiv and Cisco to Provide Next-Generation Physical Access Solutions for the Internet of Everything

FREMONT, Calif., April 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identiv, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:CSCO) to provide solutions for the Internet of Everything (IoE). The IoE is the intelligent connection of people, processes, data and things to the Internet, bringing unprecedented economic opportunities to both the private and public sectors. Initially, Identiv will deliver a next-generation, networked physical access control system (PACS) solution that interacts with other IoE elements, such as Cisco virtual supervisor module (VSM) cameras and Cisco voice-over-IP (VoIP) telephony products.

Identiv will offer a completely network based access control system, including credentials, advanced networked uTrust TS door sensors, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) door controllers and access control software. Identiv is committed to disrupting the traditional physical access market by offering a fully network-based solution that is easy to buy and use. Customers will gain enhanced value, lower installation costs and less complexity by using standards-based network cabling, leading to reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) and improved return on investment (ROI).

"Everything is connecting, and physical access is no different," said Jason Hart, Identiv CEO. "Identiv is allowing customers to view physical access control as another element of the Internet of Everything. Our focus on identity as the new security perimeter allows us to build connected systems linking buildings, mobile devices, cloud services, and information systems that are easy to use, standards based, cost effective, and most importantly, secure."

Financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed.
