)-- idOnDemand, the pioneer of smart identification, simply, today announced the opening of its Asia Pacific headquarters. The Australian facility has been established to provide Asia Pacific Operations as a component of idOnDemand's global support coverage, Research and Development, production capabilities and sales functions.
"idOnDemand is dedicated to providing customers of all sizes the significant benefits of the latest technology for secure online and physical identification. This enables our global customers to protect their business assets no matter where those assets may reside," says Jason Hart, CEO at idOnDemand. "Smartcards and PKI are very complex for most organizations to manage internally but with idOnDemand's hosted approach and 'pay- as-you-go' model, organizations can mitigate this risk by deploying in days, not years."
"We have already seen great awareness and uptake of SmartID solutions around the region with the soon to be released Queensland Smart drivers licence, Hong Kong's Octopus Card, the Centrelink and DEEWR smart employee IDs and the Queensland Police," says Michael Puckridge, Asia Pacific Sales Manager at idOnDemand. "With this new service offering, even more agencies and companies can quickly deploy technologies without the large outlay that often accompanies ID projects. With an idOnDemand SmartID solution, a single ID card can be used to protect data, access buildings as well as securely connect to the corporate network."
idOnDemand is tapping into the expertise of the highly educated, smartcard savvy IT professionals in the Asia Pacific region to offer a comprehensive service without any significant upfront capital investment. idOnDemand is working with major partners in the Asia Pacific region in the identity space to provide solutions for their customers.
The Asia Pacific headquarters will provide sales, order fulfillment, technical support, and training services to customers in the Asia Pacific region and is an integrated component of the idOnDemand global infrastructure.
idOnDemand enables customers to deploy and manage a next generation standards based smart identification solution using a Software as a Service (SaaS) approach. Unlike traditional smartcard and PKI systems, idOnDemand is hosted, simplifying the complex production, delivery and management infrastructure into a simple ‘pay-as-you-go’ business model.
With an idOnDemand SmartID, customers can consolidate their visual, physical and logical authentication into a single, secure identification card that can be used to protect corporate information, wherever that information may reside.
idOnDemand has offices in the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom.
