HID announced its HID Origo Technology Partner Program, which is the company’s first program dedicated to partners with a focus on mobile technologies.
Designed in response to the evolving security landscape, growing regulatory demands and mounting privacy concerns, the new program is expected to be a game changer, providing technology partners with the tools they need to innovate and grow market share in today’s digital-first world.
As stated in HID’s 2023 State of Security and Identity Report, digital IDs and mobile authentication are expected to propel many more mobile access deployments. And with the growing popularity of digital wallets from major players such as Google, Apple and Amazon, new opportunities and use cases are abound. As such, the HID Origo Technology Partner Program is the ideal platform for organizations to design, test and market products which integrate through HID Origo via APIs and SDKs. HID Origo is a cloud-based platform offering a scalable and secure infrastructure that enables high levels of data and privacy protection.
“When HID Mobile Access was introduced more than a decade ago, smartphones weren’t as ubiquitous as they are today, and much has advanced in the mobile technology space,” said Sanjit Bardhan, vice president and head of mobile, HID. “Technology partners are pillars to HID’s growth and success. The HID Origo Technology Partner Program enables and empowers technology partners to utilize HID’s technology to drive innovation, discuss new trends and use cases, and develop integrated solutions. The ability to develop and test integrations with the HID Origo platform, receive global accreditation and obtain early access to technology and insight into HID’s roadmap is invaluable.”
Existing technology partners are very positive about the new program. Smart Spaces — a global provider of smart building technology — is one of them. Through 2022, Smart Spaces teamed with HID to introduce employee badges in Apple Wallet, offering a secure and even more seamless building entry for employees at 22 Bishopsgate, a new and modern skyscraper in London.
“At Smart Spaces, we look for global partners to provide and support a secure integration platform while staying at the forefront of their industry through continuous innovation,” said Dan Drogman, CEO of Smart Spaces. “HID does this at scale, making our decision to partner with them an easy one. We are proud to be an HID Elite Partner deploying our market-leading technology together for some of the world's most exciting developments.”
For Witco, an all-in-one app that centralizes services for workplace and co-living experiences, the partnership with HID through the program is vital, according to Dorian Van Bever, vice president of partnerships.
