Pleasanton, California (EastBayDaily) — idOnDemand delivers the first PIV full lifecycle employee smartcard solution available as a Software as a Service (SaaS). idOnDemand eliminates the core complexity often associated with traditional in-house smartcard and PKI implementations and enables organizations to easily deploy and use a secure, multi-purpose, smart identity managed solution. Users can consolidate multiple credentials such as building access cards, remote VPN tokens, multiple usernames and passwords into a single, secure digital and visual identification card that is globally trusted and recognized between organizations.

With the idOnDemand ‘pay-as-you-go’ model, customers no longer need to incur the overhead of a complex infrastructure. Support organizations can rapidly deploy pilots as they assess the benefits of converging physical and logical access. idOnDemand was designed to eliminate the pain of deploying and managing smart identification, reduce upfront investment, significantly reduce the overall cost and ensure that organizations of all sizes can take advantage of the growing business and technical benefits of smart identification.

“Smartcard PKI systems have traditionally been out of reach of small and mid-sized companies, but with idOnDemand’s fully managed infrastructure and simple ‘pay-as-you-go model’, companies of all sizes can easily and affordably deploy a SmartID solution,” says Jason Hart, CEO of idOnDemand. “By leveraging open standards and embracing global interoperability, idOnDemand allows customers to quickly realize a physical and logical authentication platform that addresses the multiple silos of employee identification while future proofing their investment.”

“Cloud-based identity services have quickly become a viable alternative to on premises solutions in many technology areas,” said Gerry Gebel, VP and Service Director at Gartner, Inc. “It has been very interesting to track SaaS developments in user provisioning, federation, adaptive authentication, and now in strong credential services.”

“We control expensive aircraft so having greater control over our student’s identity is critical to us,” said Blake Pelletier, CEO at Harbinger Aviation, LLC. “By leveraging idOnDemand, we are able to customize our own enrollment process, gather required personal and biometric information and have our students receive their own highly secure, government standard compatible identity card.”

Utilizing a smartcard based web platform, administrators are able to enroll and manage their staff or contractor’s smartcard from any authorized global location enabling SmartID enrollment even for remote workers. idOnDemand uses a secure SAS-70 global identity environment utilizing a hardware-based PKI infrastructure to ensure global security.

Unlike traditional systems where most of the infrastructure cost is upfront, idOnDemand is subscription based meaning you only pay for the users you need and at a low annual price. For more information and access to an online trial please visit
