Pleasanton, Calif., November 14, 2011 (euro adhoc) - idOnDemand, the pioneer in
smart identification and a business unit of Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE:
Frankfurt: INV), today announced that its idOnDemand SmartID card now can be
used to authenticate mobile devices for clientless secure logon to the
SymantecTM Validation and ID Protection (VIP) Service.

idOnDemand´s enterprise customers now can fulfill the vision of their employees
carrying just one identity card to access multiple buildings, log on to their
computers, remotely access the company VPN and securely access data from their
mobile devices. By embedding a near field communications (NFC) chip into each
idOnDemand SmartID card, securely accessing corporate resources through Symantec
VIP is now easier, safer and more convenient. Employees simply touch their
idOnDemand SmartID to their mobile device and authenticate directly to the VIP
application, or enter the One-Time Password (OTP) into their existing VPN client
from their computer.

"As enterprises continue to open up and access resources in the cloud, strong
authentication can provide increased levels of security," said Kerry Loftus,
Senior Director of Product Management, Symantec. "By being able to securely
access Symantec VIP with a smart identity card, idOnDemand can now provide its
customers that added level of security, no matter the platform or device."

Symantec VIP delivers market-leading cloud-based strong authentication for
online access and transactions. A fully hosted Software as a Service (SaaS)
solution, Symantec VIP offers enterprises a cost-effective way to give
legitimate users access to business resources, enterprise applications and
online websites while thwarting identity thieves and e-fraud cartels.  The
service integrates with existing RADIUS-enabled VPN devices or other corporate
applications and supports a range of OATH-compliant OTP methods, now including
idOnDemand SmartID cards.

"idOnDemand makes deploying a single identity to an entire organization easier
and more convenient by eliminating the need for a dedicated token and the burden
of having to install or manage software on the phone," said Jason Hart, Chief
Executive Officer at idOnDemand. "Now our customers can use their idOnDemand
SmartID cards to leverage the world-class VIP authentication infrastructure from
Symantec at an affordable, pay-as-you-go price and without having to implement 
a complex infrastructure onsite."
