MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.(Feb. 23, 2015)—Entrust today announced the new Entrust® Instant ID Suite Software which is designed to help organizations of all sizes deploy a secure ID program that meets a wide range of application requirements—from basic photo IDs to high-assurance credentials.

The new software suite can be used to issue a variety of credentials such as student, faculty or visitor IDs; employee or contract badges; patient and staff healthcare IDs; credentials for local government programs; membership and customer loyalty cards; and transit passes.

Available in four editions that allow organizations to easily scale from a single workstation to a multi-station, enterprise-wide application without increasing complexity – the Instant ID Suite offers a combination of functionalities.  These include pre-configured card design templates that can be easily customized to develop unique designs; enrollment and data capture capabilities with support for QR code, photo and signature devices for capturing physical and logical cardholder data; workflow tools for reduced set-up time; enterprise integration including physical access control system (PACS) interfaces; and smart card encoding support to drive operational efficiencies.

“For most public and private organizations, the ability to positively identify employees, students and visitors serves as the foundation for effective security – and this requires a flexible, web based secure ID solution,” said Ryan Zlockie, vice president of software product marketing for Entrust.  “We are pleased to offer a complete software suite that can support a wide range of issuance technologies that gives organizations the ability to determine precisely who should and who should not access their facilities.”
