Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE; Frankfurt: INV), a provider of products and
services for the identification, security and RFID industries, has received the
2012 Frost & Sullivan Excellence in Best Practices Award for Global
Identification and Security Product Line Strategy. The award recognizes the
breadth and impact of Identive's differentiated offerings in the highly
competitive identification and security market. In particular, Frost & Sullivan
cites Identive's proactive strategy to incorporate radio frequency
identification (RFID) and near field communication (NFC) technologies ahead of
its competition to deliver secure identification (Secure ID) solutions. Frost &

industries and 250,000 companies.

"Identive is a prominent provider of Secure ID solutions to the global
identification and security market, and its broad but focused product line gives
it a competitive edge. Consistent customer focus, extension and development of
innovative products, and prompt adoption of emerging security and identification
technologies such as smart cards, RFID and NFC are customer-friendly strategies
that will accelerate Identive's move further up the secure identification value
chain," said Nandini Bhattacharya of Frost & Sullivan.

Frost & Sullivan's determines Best Practices Award recipients each year based on
its research and evaluation of how best-in-class companies worldwide manage
growth, innovation and leadership. In selecting Identive as an award recipient,
Frost & Sullivan pointed to the results of the Company's technology strategy,
which include an extensive range of products for secure identity management of
digital devices, systems and data, and ongoing development of new product lines,

examples, Frost & Sullivan cited Identive's success in becoming a global
one-stop-shop for NFC infrastructure products with the introduction of various
NFC tags, tag customization, readers, tokens, and software development kits.
This latest recognition follows the receipt earlier this year of Frost &
Sullivan's 2012 European New Product Innovation of the Year Award for NFC
Application Development Platforms.

Joseph Tassone, executive vice president of technology and product management
for Identive commented, "We live in a world in which individuals must use an
increasing number of identity credentials to function in their roles as
employees, citizens, students and consumers, and our mission is to help
