Digital ID provider Nexus has introduced the Vault, a physical access and network logon solution utilizing HID Global’s iCLASS technology that will allow use of just one card to provide credentials for multiple purposes while reducing training costs and help desk calls. The Vault is designed to store encrypted user credentials that can authenticate the card holder.
Stockholm–Nexus, a leading provider of digital identity and information security solutions, has announced the launch of its Vault enabled by HID Global’s iCLASS® 13.56 MHz technology, providing a contactless logical access solution.
