NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) and HID Global, both trusted leaders in solutions for the delivery of secure identity, announced their collaboration to introduce a global, generic Mobile Access solution for NFC-enabled mobile phones. Both companies helped create the current market for card-based physical access systems and are now jointly moving these solutions to mobile phones as NFC becomes a standard feature.
The contactless cards that employees use to enter corporate buildings can now be transferred to an NFC-enabled phone. The digital access credentials are securely stored on NXP's embedded Secure Element within the handset and are presented by the mobile phone in a manner that is compatible with access control readers and systems. As the use of NFC smart phones for access control becomes increasingly more popular, consumers and enterprises can expect the same high level of security improved convenience on a mobile device.
