HID Global has announced that Omnikey brand PC-linked smart card reader drivers are certified to support the newly released Microsoft Windows 7. Well-regarded for ease-of-use, easy installation and exceptional driver stability, Omnikey contact and contactless readers currently available on the market have been tested and are compatible with the new operating system.

In anticipation of the new Windows software platform, HID Global product engineers began development, testing and implementation of software and products to support Windows 7 earlier this year. Based on affirmative testing results, developers provided positive feedback on ease-of-use, straightforward installation and driver stability. In April 2009, the first reader drivers were WHQL-certified for use with Windows 7, ensuring support for customers using USB-connected smart card readers. PC users who use Omnikey readers for authentication or other applications can rely on the readers for continued performance with the new operating system.

HID Global builds compliance with standard technology platforms into its product development process, ensuring that hardware will interface with common platforms and protocols. The company is committed to increased security through long-term dedicated testing. With the well-known quality and reliability of HID Omnikey products, industry partners and end-users can trust HID products for business continuity and first-mover support.

Drivers for the following Omnikey reader model families are WHQL certified:

* Contactless or Dual-Interface technology supporting readers: OMNIKEY 5321, 5125, 5325, 6321
* Contact card readers: OMNIKEY 3021, 3121, 3621, 3821, 3921, 1021, 4040, 4321, 7121
