ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., Sept. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RF IDeas, Inc., a leading innovator and manufacturer of employee RF credential readers for in-building applications such as computer access, identification, secure pull print, and time and attendance will showcase its pcProx® Plus BLE mobile credential reader with integrated Bluetooth® low energy technology with Safetrust at Bluetooth World in Santa Clara, California. Located in booth #433, the two companies will demonstrate mobile credential authentication using a smartphone enabling secure print, single sign-on (SSO), point-of-sale (POS) transactions, and other activities.

Benefits of an identity and access management solution that incorporates the pcProx Plus BLE credential reader and Safetrust mobile credentials include:

  • Flexible Authentication: Users can leverage either their mobile device or their traditional employee ID badge.  Depending on the end user’s application software, pcProx Plus BLE also can be configured to utilize Bluetooth low energy to serve a wide variety of applications such as in-building location, secure authentication, and item tracking.
  • Powerful Security: With a simple tap of a smartphone users easily authenticate and securely access networks, applications, printers and more, eliminating the need to remember multiple user names and passwords.

“As we look at the evolving nature of security, the ability to authenticate through mobile credentials is becoming more prominent than ever,” said Jason Hart, CEO, Safetrust. “Yet one of the biggest values we can provide our customers is choices. Through our affiliation with RF IDeas, users can implement both mobile credential authentication and physical ID authentication using the pcProx Plus BLE card reader. This becomes an extremely cost-effective solution for customers who either don’t want to or are not ready to completely remove their existing systems.”

“We always keep abreast of the way technology is evolving and affecting the industries we serve,” said David Cottingham, President, RF IDeas. “Mobile credentials are not just the wave of the future; they’re here, and our technology is ready to support them. Our pcProx Plus BLE card reader addresses the needs of industries across the board as companies look for a logical access solution that works with mobile credentials such as those provided by Safetrust. Together, we’re offering customers a reliable, secure way to access their everyday business as they adopt mobile credentials in addition to traditional proximity or contactless badges.“

Bluetooth World 2018 takes place in the Santa Clara Convention Center Sept. 18-19 and brings together more than 1,500 developers, engineers, start-ups and executives looking to explore the world of Bluetooth technology.
