Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions,
today announced that its physical access control solutions have been

Post was seeking a fast, secure and convenient card solution that
was interoperable with different types of card readers. The organization
wanted to implement a multi-functional card for applications beyond
access control. In addition, Norway Post was looking to deploy an access
control system that would enable them to seamlessly migrate from
existing legacy technologies to more advanced technologies.
"Now we have a multi-functional card that can be used for secure access
control, discounts on railways, payments in canteens and even for access
to vehicles," said Arnfinn Nordheim, Security Director with Norway Post.
"In addition, the solution has improved our security and lowered our
costs, since it is much easier to replace a card than a key if you lose

customers have come to expect," said Volker Kunz, Director of Sales,
Europe with HID Global. "Our access control migration solution enables
Norway Post to benefit from multiple possibilities around secure
identities today and also provides them a future proof solution ready
for new requirements they may havein the future."
From a business perspective, HID Global's standard iCLASS® and HID Prox
credential provides a single-card solution that also resulted in
significant cost savings. Additionally, it can be easily integrated with
Norway Post's existing access control system, allowing for seamless
migration from magnetic stripe cards to contactless smart cards.
Norway Post extended its relationship with HID Global through the
deployment as they were confident that HID Global was the only trusted
and credible organization that could fulfill their stringent
requirements. As a result of another successful implementation, HID
Global is continuing to strengthen its relationship and future
collaboration with Norway Post.
