Subtitle: New reader family enables rapid convergence of physical and logical

SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, March 13, 2012 (euro adhoc) - Identive
Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE: Frankfurt: INV), today introduced TouchSecure
OpenAccess™, a family of revolutionary access readers that enable a broad range
of organizations to upgrade and integrate their physical and logical access
control systems quickly and cost-effectively while retaining existing
proprietary physical access systems. 

"To enhance security of personnel and assets within their facilities, government
agencies and businesses of all sizes are working to integrate their physical and
IT network access systems using open standard platforms, so that a single
identity credential can be used for employees across the entire enterprise, from
door to network," explained John Menzel, vice president Access Control ID
Solutions for Identive. "In order to bridge logical and physical systems with a
single identity, door readers need to combine support for proprietary legacy
systems with secure and open IT network communication capabilities. This
principle is the basis for the new TouchSecure reader family."  

As one of the world´s first physical access readers capable of reading a
multitude of access card formats, the TouchSecure OpenAccess supports the
convergence of physical and logical access systems around the use of a single
trusted identity credential. When installed at a facility´s entrance points, the
reader becomes a secure open platform to unify and enhance building security
within a single site or across different sites using different card systems. The
reader also offers complete scalability from local to cloud-based management and

"Physical access systems are notoriously difficult to upgrade because they are
deeply embedded within buildings," noted Mark Diodati, research vice president
at Gartner. "An intelligent reader can provide stronger authentication, mobile
device support, and simpler IT convergence without a potential multi-year
upgrade of the entire physical access system."

TouchSecure OpenAccess provides this intelligence. For companies that wish to
upgrade their access control systems from older proprietary systems to newer
technologies that offer higher security and more flexibility, the reader
provides a migration path that allows a gradual swap-out of employee credentials
over time, without the need to rip out and replace existing controllers, wiring
or access readers.

"TouchSecure readers are ideally suited for organizations implementing card
technology migration or support for multiple types of credentials, as well as
those just seeking a reader with maximum performance and security options for
the future," stated Dr. Manfred Mueller, Executive Vice President of Identive
and Managing Director of the Company´s ID Infrastructure division. "An open
architecture design enables broad applicability for small/medium enterprises of
100 employees all the way up to the largest corporations that maintain multiple
campuses spanning the globe. Compliance with the industry´s most stringent
security standards ensures the reader´s suitability for use in high-security
government facilities, as mandated under federal directives. TouchSecure
OpenAccess is truly designed for the 21st century, able to take you from your
current door reader technology to wherever you want to migrate in the future."

TouchSecure OpenAccess readers support multiple proximity and smart card
formats, including proximity-125 kHz (all major building access formats), NXP
MIFARE® Classic, DESFire®  EV1, ISO14443A/B CSN, PLAID, ISO 15693, NFC and U.S.
government personal identification verification (PIV), including PIV-I. The
TouchSecure OpenAccess reader is based on international standards including
ISO14443A/B, ISO7816, FIPS201, FIPS140-2 and PLAID. With remote connectivity
capabilities, firmware technology updates can add new compatibilities in the
future, making the TouchSecure OpenAccess a long-term solution, available today.

In addition to traditional Wiegand and RS-485 communication to a controller,
TouchSecure OpenAccess readers offer support for Ethernet and Wi-Fi, enabling
remote management from the desktop and overall system management in the cloud.
Configuration, firmware updates and diagnostics are easily accomplished with
just a few clicks.
