LEGIC Identsystems welcomes SCM Microsystems as an important new partner to the LEGIC partner network. For SCM Microsystems this cooperation will make it possible to integrate the contactless LEGIC technology into its own security solutions. Above all the focus is on the use of the LEGIC card-in-card solutions. This virtual transponder technology enables for example the easy combination of physical access control and logical IT access on one single smart card or USB token. The companies will be presenting the first LEGIC based solutions from 17 - 19 November at Cartes in Paris.

With the new @MAXX USB token product family, SCM Microsystems is setting new standards in the area of virtual transponder solutions from LEGIC. The system supplier sees particular business potential in the LEGIC card-in-card solutions which make it possible to integrate classic LEGIC functionalities into smart cards from third party suppliers as virtual transponders. When these smart cards are inserted into an SCM @MAXX USB token in SIM format, they transform this into a transponder which can be used in both contactless and contact applications. Through the integration of this technology, SCM Microsystems looks forward to a stronger convergence of physical and logical access solutions ("Converged Access"), in order to meet the increasing requirements of its customers. At the same time thanks to the multifunctionality of the LEGIC transponder, customers get access to the "World of LEGIC", the variety of other contactless applications such as time & attendance, access control, cashless payment, public transport, and many more.

"Our customers place very high demands on our security solutions", says Dr Manfred Müller, EVP Strategic Sales & Business Development of SCM Microsystems. "The partnership with LEGIC will give us access to a state-of-the-art technology which is convincing in terms of security and flexibility. The use of the LEGIC card-in-card solutions gives us a decisive head start over our competitors."

Dr Otto Eggimann, Vice President Sales and Business Development of LEGIC, expects the partnership to lead to a further strengthening of converged solutions from the IT sector and personal identification: "Our card-in-card solutions make it possible to attach LEGIC functionalities to existing credentials as required. This opens up completely new markets and leads to new products which easily bring together the worlds of contact and contactless applications. SCM Microsystems is an important partner for us in the further development of this business sector."
