WidePoint approved to issue ECA PIV-I credentials

WidePoint Corporation (NYSE: WYY), a provider of managed mobility services (MMS) specializing in cyber security and telecommunications lifecycle management (TLM) solutions, has been approved to issue ECA PIV-I credentials after meeting the requirements of DoD and GSA, the company said.

The ECA PIV-I credential is a federated identity credential in the federal government because it crosses over defense (ECA) and civilian (PIV-I) communities of interest, thus providing a single high-assurance credential with full interoperability throughout the government. ECA PIV-I credentials also enable enterprises to achieve multi-factor authentication, digital signature, and encryption capabilities to protect corporate assets.

WidePoint has been an approved issuer of US Government strong authentication credentials since 1999 and has been a certified, accredited and audited issuer of PIV credentials since 2006, managing over 10 million certificates.

WidePoint is a provider of secure, cloud-delivered, enterprise-wide information technology-based solutions that can enable enterprises and agencies to deploy fully compliant IT services in accordance with government-mandated regulations and advanced system requirements.
