SAN FRANCISCO, Feb 27, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- RSA Conference -- HID Global, trusted leader in solutions for the delivery of secure identity, today announced its highly-integrated fraud detection service from its Identity Assurance business, ActivIdentity. The solution will demonstrate its 4TRESS Authentication solution and CMS appliance with Smart Card Alliance's CIV Credential that fully integrates Genuine HID(TM) Crescendo credentials at this week's RSA Conference 2012 in San Francisco. In addition to showcasing its diverse portfolio of leading authentication and credential management technologies, the company will also preview its new U.S. Government solutions for PIV-enabled physical-logical access control in #1646.

The combined strength of the brands brings a uniquely diverse heritage and a unified solutions set that illustrates the convenience and cost-savings that convergence from a single provider offers enterprise, government and financial services organizations.

Demonstrations will include:

Credential management and authentication enterprise solutions:
