This guide presents the services available via the Crescendo 2300 Mini Driver, a free middleware from HID Global designed specifically for the following devices:
Standalone and ActivID CMS managed devices:
The supported devices are versatile and can be deployed in standard mode (that is, without any central credential management system) or in an enterprise-managed environment (that is, with a central credential management system).
The supported devices can be used on a variety of environments, providing a wide range of strong authentication, digital signature and encryption services – such as secure Windows log on, secure authentication to web sites, secure authentication to remote sessions, email digital signature, email and file encryption.
A strong identity is the foundation of zero trust security and helps organizations protect personal and corporate data as well as meet regulatory requirements.
HID Crescendo devices enable organizations to improve their security posture and make progress towards removing passwords from their logical access control systems.
The study of security breaches has provided strong evidence that using passwords represent the largest risk factor for any organization. Either supplementing passwords with additional authentication factors, or outright replacing them with strong authentication devices is the best way to protect users, applications and data.
