Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE; Frankfurt: INV), a provider of solutions and services for the identification, security and RFID industries, today announced that the Hong Kong Police Force will deploy smart card readers based on Identive’s technology to comply with new security policies and protect confidential information. Identive’s local partner AMCL HK has been awarded a tender to supply 12,500 readers utilizing Identive’s smart card reader technology, to be delivered in the first quarter of 2013.

To prevent unauthorized access and abuse of confidential information from its networks, the Hong Kong Police Force is implementing new IT policies that include the use of smart card-based identification credentials to authenticate its employees. This will provide higher security than the use of a password alone and also make it possible to track what information has been accessed and by whom. Identive designed and supplied the chipsets for the readers to accommodate both contact and contactless smart cards as well as secure access modules (SAM).
