TECH.ED NORTH AMERICA 2008, Orlando, Fla, June 10, 2008 - Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, today announced Instant Badge Issuance (IBI)—a smart card identity badge creation system that complements Microsoft’s Identity and Access solutions and enables enterprises to produce employee IDs locally in minutes. In addition to printing graphics and personalizing applications on a magnetic stripe or ISO 14443 compatible contactless chip, IBI works directly with Microsoft Active Directory and Identity Lifecycle Manager (ILM) to load digital certificates directly onto the smart card. The result is a single, converged badge that gives employees secure access to facilities, networks and applications throughout the enterprise.
