We are the Foundation for Trusted Identity. We are a cybersecurity software company, and we can help your organization deploy and manage strong authentication credentials. Every day we help companies, non-profits, and government agencies of all sizes realize the benefits of state-of-the-art, federally recognized, interoperable identity credentials.
We saw government agencies and private companies where guards eyeballed “flash passes” and “secure” systems which needed only a simple password for logon. State-of-the-art credentials existed, and organizations desperately needed them, but they were too expensive. So, we founded FTI and set out to make it easier to deploy and less costly to maintain a PIV-I program certified by the U.S. Government.
Built on security standards pioneered by the military and adopted by the U.S. Government as a cornerstone of national security, PIV-I cards are not your average photo-ID. Each PIV-I card contains a microchip that securely stores cryptographic certificates used to verify the cardholder’s identity. Our credentials are built to the widely adopted PIV-I standard, and contain digital certificates that are cross-certified to the Federal Public Key Infrastructure, meaning your credentials can be easily validated and trusted by partners including Federal Government agencies like the Department of Education, the Transportation Safety Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.
Secure systems and facilities are only as secure as the credentials they trust. That’s why you can’t board an airplane without a Real ID, or get into a secure federal facility with a speakeasy password. Our solution allows organizations to easily deploy, manage, and integrate a truly trusted identity solution - in fact, the IDs you issue will be so trusted you actually can use them as ID in the TSA line! We offer:
FTI’s Personal Identification Verification–Interoperable (PIV-I) solutions have gone through the rigorous process of Federal PKI Policy Authority approval. FTI is one of only a small number of security vendors on the U.S. government’s list of trusted PIV-I providers.
FTI credentials implement the same standards of vetting and issuance developed by the U.S. government for its employees, and adhere to the same FIPS-201 standard used by the US military and federal government.
FTI cards store cryptographic certificates used to verify a cardholder’s identity. The digital certificates on a PIV-I card can be used to encrypt emails, sign PDFs, and login to websites.
FTI PIV-I cards are part of the federal web-of-trust so they can validated outside your organization, and are trusted as valid ID by federal agencies ranging from the TSA to FEMA.
FTI PIV-I cards can be used to control both logical access to networks and systems, as well as physical access to facilities. Finally you can use one credential at the guard desk, door scanners, and your laptop!
You are in control of the design of your PIV-I card. You can customize everything from the logo, to the layout, and even the tamper-proof hologram laminate.
FTI’s Identity Management System makes it simple to issue, revoke. We provide all the training and equipment need to manage credentialing activities completely in-house.
FTI cards comes with baked-in three factor authentication, using your card (something you have), your cryptographic PIN (something you know), and your fingerprint (something you are). Forget usb keys, SMS texts, or other less secure 2FA solutions, and leverage the credential you already carry.
