HID Global’s naviGO software version 1.37 has received the highest possible rating, an A, from Veracode, a company that tests software for security vulnerabilities. This rating, says HID, means that naviGO has been evaluated against industry-standard benchmarks such as the common weakness enumeration, common vulnerability scoring system, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology to determine software weaknesses and vulnerability severity levels.
The Veracode rating also incorporates business risk so that critical applications like naviGO are evaluated in the context of the data they handle.
HID’s naviGO is the key component of the company’s on the Desktop solution, which improves risk management across the enterprise by using an organization’s existing physical access control cards to log into the IT infrastructure.
Mirroring the secure user experience popularized by the company’s physical access control platforms, HID on the Desktop is a three-component solution (HID cards, readers and naviGO software) that delivers authentication enabled by the use of a single credential for both physical and logical access.
