Proximity Card Authentication
Cloud Based Proximity Card Authentication
A favorite among government clients such as state and county agencies as well as local municipalities, proximity card authentication works by passing a credit card size badge over the card reader in addition to your username and password. Provided the badge passes “in proximity” to the reader, the reader can authenticate the badge holder.
All logon / logout events are documented online, and proximity authentication can be granted and revoked via online access.
Our proximity reader hardware is USB connected and driverless making it a great choice for both Local Windows Authentication, Microsoft Active Directory Authentication and Citrix NetScaler access.
Cloudstar sells HID readers and HID & Phillips cards. In most cases HID cards can also be programmed for building access as well where applicable.
