WidePoint Receives Approval to Issue ID Credentials for Defense, Civilian Requirements

widepointWidePoint has received approval to issue identity credentials that meet the requirements of the Defense Department and the General Services Administration.

The company said Thursday it becomes the first source of ECA PIV-I credentials that combine DoD-issued External Certification Authority and civilian agencies’ Personal Identity Verification-Interoperable credentials.

ECA PIV-I credentials are also designed to help enterprises achieve multi-factor authentication, digital signature and encryption support to secure corporate assets.

WidePoint added the approval follows the White House’s release of Circular A-130, Managing Information as a Strategic Resource which requires employees and contractors to use PIV credentials for multi-factor authentication.
