AUSTIN, Texas, February 19, 2020 – HID Global, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced it has been named a finalist in the Microsoft Security 20/20 program’s Identity Trailblazer category. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation, integration, and customer implementation with Microsoft technology.  

“Being named an award finalist recognizes our work with Microsoft on helping fulfill its vision for using FIDO2 security keys to eliminate the risk of compromised usernames and passwords,” said Brad Jarvis, Vice President & Managing Director of Identity & Access Management Solutions (IAMS) with HID Global. “We have aligned our efforts with this Microsoft initiative to bring our customers a growing family of converged smart cards and keys that extend the benefits of passwordless FIDO2 authentication to provide users a single credential for access throughout the workplace, from the door to cloud and IT resources.”

At the inaugural Microsoft Security 20/20 partner awards, the company will celebrate finalists in 16 categories that span security integration partners, system integrators and managed security service providers. HID Global has been nominated as an Identity Trailblazer finalist.

“The themes for the new Microsoft Security 20/20 partner awards are vision and clarity. Microsoft Security is focused on protecting our customers and there is no vision for the future that doesn’t involve security partners,” said Rob Lefferts, CVP, Microsoft Threat Protection. “We are hosting the first Microsoft Security 20/20 partner awards gala to honor security partners that are making an impact through technology development and customer enablement.”

Only through collaborations can organizations help customers get clarity and become more secure. The security ecosystem must work together to create a vision for the future where people, information, and companies are made safer. Microsoft Security 20/20 provides an opportunity to honor Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions and services during the past year.
