Gallagher has announced the release of its Mobile Connect app which promises to transform a mobile phone into an access device – empowering businesses to use mobile technology in place of traditional access cards.
The security division of the Gallagher Group partnered with the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance and Nok Nok Labs to create the app, which uses two-step remote provisioning to deliver secure enrolment by sending an email invitation with SMS code to verify the user and the mobile device.
Steve Bell, chief technology officer at Gallagher said: “Mobile Connect really brings the best of both worlds to the market. It makes access simpler and easier for users while operating on highly-secure, cutting-edge FIDO protocols that give businesses supreme confidence in their security.”
In addition, Mobile Connect claims to significantly reduce costs and simplifies administration through a range of exclusive features. Users can also enjoy a unique subscription model, allowing credentials to be transferred between users and reissued to devices.
Bell adds: “We’re thrilled with this latest release in our mobile technology development programme and the simplicity it brings to our customers. Our goal is always to develop simple solutions underpinned by the strongest security, and that’s what we’ve achieved here.”
Optional two-factor authentication, either PIN or biometric, is also available to provide added security and flexibility for sites using Mobile Connect.
