Subtitle: Lets enterprises utilize existing employee ID cards to provide secure
access to facilities, networks and shared services

SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, July 16, 2012 (euro adhoc) - Identive
Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE; Frankfurt: INV), a provider of products and services
for the identification, security and RFID industries, today introduced the
TouchSecure® Desktop Reader, an innovative identity authentication solution that
allows enterprise customers to implement secure access to their physical
facilities, corporate networks, shared printers and copiers using a single
identity credential -- their employees' existing building access cards.

"Every enterprise has its own set of corporate programs for privilege
management: to check employees' identity at the door, ensure cyber security and
track the use of shared resources. However, these programs are nearly always
independent from each other - and so are the access protocols, resulting in
multiple ID cards, passwords and PINs," said John Menzel, vice president Access
Control ID Solutions for Identive. "Our new TouchSecure Desktop Reader enables
the use of employee ID cards to manage privileges across the enterprise - to
enter the workplace, securely sign on to corporate networks, secure email,
access shared copiers and printers and even pay for food in the company
cafeteria. Having a single ID credential to access multiple services is more
convenient for employees, easier and more cost effective to manage for
organizations and ultimately more secure."

Identive's patent-pending technology enables the TouchSecure Desktop Reader to
validate a broad array of disparate ID badges and building access cards, making
it possible for enterprises to utilize existing employee ID credentials to
access multiple services within an organization. Connecting the reader via USB
to a desktop computer or PC enables two-factor authentication (card and PIN) for
single sign-on to the network, which offers higher security than a simple
password. The reader can be connected to shared printers and copiers to restrict
and track access so that the costs of using these assets can be managed and
charged to the appropriate departments. When used in conjunction with a cash
register, the TouchSecure Desktop Reader can be used to process payment
transactions in a company cafeteria or store.

The TouchSecure family of readers is based on international standards including
ISO14443A/B, which guarantees an open and interoperable platform design that
supports current and future chip technologies and card formats. TouchSecure
readers support both legacy proximity and newer smart cards, creating a single
platform on which OEM and integrators can standardize, eliminating the
requirement to support multiple models. Card technologies and formats supported
by the TouchSecure Desktop Reader include proximity - 125 kHz (most major
building access formats), NXP MIFARE® CSN and ISO 15693 CSN.

The TouchSecure Desktop Reader is available now. For more information, visit:
