HID has announced innovative technology for supporting retail point of sales (POS) to ensure data access and identity verification through its OMNIKEY Desktop Readers. These solutions are powered by the latest RFID technology and designed to offer pioneering, reliable and successful applications.
WHAT: OMNIKEY 5427CK desktop readers can be used for employee logical access. Employees use their access card to login to their POS station and scan their badge during each transaction they process.
This ensures a simple, secure and efficient method of authenticating employees while verifying each user before they gain access to a POS.
WHY: Strong authentication around POS transactions is critical within retail environments. Organisations need a simple, streamlined way to ensure that only authorised users have access to POS applications and pertinent business data.
OMNIKEY 5427CK desktop readers help prevent unauthorised access, enforce accountability among staff, eliminate the risks around password use, and fortify retailers against phishing attacks and fraud.
Innovative OMNIKEY readers facilitate access to shared POS stations where users no longer must tolerate tedious password practices of re-entering their credentials every time they login, logout or transact.
Passwordless authentication reduces IT help desk costs related to password resets, supports compliance with industry regulation and authentication standards, and better protects data. It also provides a more seamless experience for employees which translates to better, faster service to elevate the overall customer experience.
HOW: The OMNIKEY 5427CK readers offer passwordless login and user authentication. When employees want to access a station, they simply present their access badge to the reader to prove who they are – removing the nuisance and risks using passwords. The OMNIKEY contactless reader authenticates individuals by using secure communication and data assigned to each user.
Connected directly via a USB cable, OMNIKEY 5427CK readers are simple to install and can support all relevant operating systems and environments where contactless smart card technologies are required.
