“Customers have told us they are seeking a single smart card to manage both logical and physical access control applications,” said Peter Houston, senior director of Marketing for Identity and Access at Microsoft Corp. “By working with us on Identity Lifecycle Manager 2007, HID will enable customers to effectively deploy and maintain solutions for strong authentication through its Crescendo series smart cards, and combine these solutions for logical access control with solutions for physical access control.”
