HID Global Incorporates OMNIKEY Readers Into Dell's Mobile Clinical Computing
Solution; Solution Brings Mobility and Security While Targeting a 25% Increase
in Hospital Productivity

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HID Global, a worldwide
leader in secure identity solutions, and Dell^TM, announced today that the two
companies have combined their technologies to meet the growing needs of the
healthcare industry. HID Global has provided OMNIKEY® 5321 readers for use
with Dell's Mobile Clinical Computing (MCC) solution, which offers greater
security through a single authentication, fast and automatic, made with their
own ID badge. The solution allows health care providers to have secure access
to all authorized data and applications without the need to memorize different
login IDs and passwords to hospital systems or external solutions.

Besides the unique signature and authentication features, Dell's Mobile
Clinical Computing solution consists of two pillars - cross-platform
virtualization and mobility equipment, providing healthcare organizations more
efficiency, productivity and full data security.

The purpose of Mobile Clinical Computing solution is to bring mobility to the
hospital, save time, improve the quality of patient care, and increase
hospital's operational productivity up to 25%. According to Ricardo Menezes,
Director of Sales at Dell Brazil for Health, Education and Government, "That
does not mean Dell is equipping hospitals only with notebooks, but with a
solution that integrates the virtualization of data, and allows for current
standard information to be securely accessed at any time and at any place by
any authorized person".

According to Gustavo Gassmann, Director of Sales at HID Global in Brazil, the
company's solution is ideal for hospitals with professionals who need to share
the same computer and system. "The two factor authentication is always used
for employee access: the identification card that can also be used for
physical access, and a password. Besides the ease of use of the technology,
security is guaranteed for the multiple users who share the same machine,"
said Gassmann.

With a dual interface, HID Global's OMNIKEY 5321 reader is for external use
via USB and supports 13.56 MHz contactless iCLASS®and MIFARE®cards that follow
ISO 14443 A / B and ISO 15693 standards. The reader allows users to experience
the convenience, speed and security of contactless technology for different
applications including login to Windows®, networks, web sites and applications
for the secure storage of user names, passwords and personal information.
