The term “credential” usually conjures up an image of an employee identification card. Such cards were created simply as a way to visually identify that a person belonged in a building or with a particular group. In the 1960s, we started using technology to access buildings, restricted areas, and more.
In the decades since credential technology continually evolved to improve security and eventually embrace applications beyond physical access. Now the question is: Have security professionals and end-users evolved alongside credential technology?
This whitepaper explores this question as well as reveals why 45% of security professionals have already transitioned, or are in the process of transitioning, their customers to the new accepted standard.
