Apple certifies WAVE ID products to work with HID employee badge, student ID in the Apple Wallet

The WAVE ID Plus Mini and SP Plus readers support HID mobile credentials, including employee badge and Student ID in Apple Wallet

rf IDEAS, a global manufacturer of RFID credential readers, has announced that Apple has certified its WAVE ID products to work with HID employee badge and student ID in the Apple Wallet. 

This effort is set to streamline logical access, user authentication, secure printing, visitor management, time and attendance, and other solutions using state-of-the-art RFID technology for enterprise and education organizations that leverage mobile credentials in the Apple Wallet.

“By leveraging the power of HID Employee Badge and Student ID in Apple Wallet for logical access, we are improving the user experience while enhancing data security,” says Raul Cepeda Jr., vice president of Product and Marketing at rf IDEAS. “Our joint mobile solution enables enterprise employees and students with secure, efficient, and compliant authentication.”

Aside from helping businesses and universities modernize the user experience and improve security, Employee Badge and Student ID in Apple Wallet are eradicating the concern of having to replace lost or stolen physical ID badges, he adds. 

“This integration reinforces rf IDEAS’ strategy of supporting organizations that are looking to migrate to a mobile-first identity and access management strategy,” says Cepeda. “Thanks to near-field communication (NFC) technology, users can frictionlessly access endpoints quickly and safely.”
