HID Global Introduces Developers Edition for Asure ID® 2009 Secure ID Card Personalization Software

LAS VEGAS, Nev., - 2010 ISC West - March 25, 2010 - HID Global, a trusted leader in solutions that deliver secure identity, today introduced at the ISC West International Security Conference and Exposition here a developers edition for the company's Asure ID® 2009 secure ID card personalization software. The Asure ID 2009 Developers Edition and the accompanying Software Developer Kit (SDK) enables customers, integrators and third-party developers to incorporate a wide variety of Asure ID functionality into their own applications.

HID Global's Asure ID 2009 is a complete line of card personalization software that is simple to learn and incorporates features to improve the issuance and management of photo IDs for any type or size of organization. Featuring a highly intuitive user interface that utilizes a familiar Microsoft® Ribbon look and feel, Asure ID 2009 is built on the Microsoft .NET technology platform for stability and interoperability.

The Asure ID 2009 Developers Edition and SDK provides a simple means by which high-level application software can be combined with Asure ID to perform a wide variety of functions via application programming interfaces (APIs), including card template management, printing and image capture. This contrasts with other card issuance software development packages that use proprietary interfaces which are time-consuming to program, use legacy interfaces that don't support modern operating systems, or require adherence to a complicated licensing model. The Asure ID 2009 Developers Edition and SDK also contain the proven front-end card design application with graphical user interface from current Asure ID 2009 versions.

"Behind the friendly interface, Asure ID 2009 is a productivity powerhouse with capabilities to support the most sophisticated ID card personalization applications and infrastructures," said Alan Fontanella, Senior Director of Product Marketing for HID Global's Identity and Access Management business. "Now, we've opened up the power of Asure ID 2009 to third-party developers so they can easily add value to their own software solution by integrating a wide variety of exciting functionality that enables users to design and produce ID cards with unprecedented ease and efficiency."

The Asure ID 2009 Developers Edition is licensed based on a simple per-end-user installation licensing model. The SDK is designed to support developers in integrating Asure ID 2009 Developers Edition, which includes all necessary documentation and is now available.
