Are you fed up with your cable tangle?

Then make your smartcard mobile!

Whether you use smartcards or not – workplace security should always be effective and easy-to-use.

How do you currently protect your workplace – simple?

Wireless Security? even smarter with AirID

Do you use company ID cards in your firm?

If so, you surely identify with the following annoying situations:

Every time you log in to your computer you have to take out your card and insert it into the card reader - and when you leave? Don’t forget your card!

You’re on the go and just quickly want to open an encrypted document on your computer. You’ve almost reached your destination though when you finally dig up your smartcard from your bag.

The doors on your company’s premises only open with your smartcard. If you forget your card you have to go back to your office. You’ll be late again for an appointment!

Usually you use your smartcard to pay at your company’s cafeteria. But if you forget your card your colleague will have to pick up the check for you again.

Or you don’t have an ID but you’d like to
improve your workplace IT security?

Then you probably deal with the following topics:

Is it possible to use my smartphone as a secure IT solution?

You have many employees at various locations? No problem, you won’t have to buy expensive hardware! We offer you a low-price software solution that can be made available to all of them. Managed centrally.

Can I use my smartphone to securely log in to my computer and is there an option for multi-factor authentication?

Privacy is very important to us. That’s why we prefer a secure solution with the “IT SECURITY MADE IN GERMANY” seal.

I don’t want to store my login data online in the cloud. Is there an offline storage
option? Yes, we do offer offline storage.

No matter which solution you use today:
As soon as you leave your workplace, all your data are unprotected!
Order your “Upgrade” and automatically protect your workplace when you leave it through automatic logging off & locking.
