Reston, Virginia. October 12, 2023 – IDEMIA, the world-leading provider of secure identity and biometric solutions, announced today the development of a secure, standards-based converged access card for the enterprise access market, in collaboration with HYPR, the identity assurance company that’s become the gold-standard in passwordless authentication, and Wavelynx, a leader in secure and interoperable reader and credential solutions. The creation of this one-of-a-kind smart credential will help organizations meet compliance and regulatory requirements and security best practices.
