ELATEC products Now Support KleverKey Virtual Credentials
KleverKey and ELATEC Partner for Secure, Contactless Mobile Access Control
Horgen, Switzerland, August 11, 2020 – Swissprime Technologies, the developer of KleverKey, has teamed up with ELATEC to enable secure, touchless user authentication using smartphone credentials. ELATEC’s popular TWN4 MultiTech family of RFID/BLE readers will now support contactless access control using the KleverKey virtual credentials.
KleverKey’s mobile credentials enable user authentication via a smartphone app for building access, secure printing, single sign on (SSO), vehicle fleet management, vending and dispensing, and other secure physical access applications. The technology integration will allow ELATEC customers to access secure locations and services using virtual credentials stored in their KleverKey App.
“More and more users ask for mobile credentials. Their smartphones are with them all the time, which makes the use of virtual credentials very convenient and easy to deploy. The relevance of contactless access control is becoming more essential in the era of COVID-19″, said Robert Helgerth, CEO of ELATEC GmbH. “Integrating the KleverKey solution into our RFID/BLE reader software provides maximum flexibility for our customers. They can accommodate secure access control, using either an RFID card or a smartphone or both. The Elatec universal reader allows customers to migrate to a contactless workplace at their own pace.”
Thomas Riesen, the CEO and Founder of Swissprime Technologies, says, “Smartphone authentication leverages a technology that most employees and building tenants are already carrying and eliminates community touchpoints that can spread pathogens. Our partnership with ELATEC will bring KleverKey’s touchless mobile access solutions to more customers with a versatile and highly secure reader that works well in practically any environment.”
KleverKey credentials and subscriptions can now be purchased through ELATEC worldwide. For more information continue reading here: https://www.elatec-rfid.com/int/kleverkey
