Benefits of Smart ID

Smooth and secure solution

The Smart ID solution provides easier management of your organization's security solutions in Nexus systems that are integrated with existing infrastructure such as active directory (AD) and physical access control systems (PACS). 

With its standard use cases and easy system setup, the solution suits all small and medium organizations, municipalities, etc, that want to ensure security, traceability, compliance to local and global regulations, and minimal administrative work to manage identities, cards, certificates, and access to digital resources. In the Smart ID solution, Nexus has implemented best-practice use cases, based on previous world-wide experiences.

Cover most common use cases

The Smart ID solution includes most common use cases, with automated workflows for example for lost cards, temporary cards, new mobile devices, and change of PIN. These workflows include approval steps and email notifications to ensure that the identities and cards are managed in a secure way throughout the lifecycle. 

Integrate in existing infrastructure

The Smart ID solution integrates to your existing infrastructure. Identities are managed by synchronization with your existing Active Directory or Human Resources system. The solution also connects to your existing physical access control system (PACS) and certificate authority (CA).
