“HID Global has forecasted top trends for 2017 based on our broad view of the market in close collaboration with customers and partners who are assessing and deploying innovative solutions across markets worldwide,” said Stefan Widing, HID Global president and CEO.
HID Global recently covered trusted identities for mobile devices and smart cards and the greater emphasis on the cloud for digital IDs. This time we dive into the Internet of Trusted Things.
Trusted identities will increasingly be employed to help secure, customize and enhance the user experience across a growing range of industry segments that are embracing the power of the IoT.
HID Global recently acquired Bluvision, a leading Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) provider, which will extend the company’s cloud-based services and enable HID Global to address a larger portion of the growing IoT market.
Organizations will look towards streamlining processes and operations using real-time location systems, presence- and proximity-based location functionality, condition monitoring solutions, beacons and cloud-based models for emerging IoT applications using Bluetooth Low Energy.
These applications will include a growing number of energy efficient, productivity and safety-oriented use cases that will need to know the identity of occupants in a physical space to manage environmental conditions, book meeting rooms and auto-configure audio visual equipment and alarms.
Bluetooth Low Energy-based solutions will also advance existing secure proof of presence capabilities to include the predictive analytics and functionality based on location-based technologies.
