Mobile security – simply wireless with Makro Factory and certgate AiRID

Karlsruhe/Düsseldorf, March 03, 2020: Makro Factory has added the AirID & AirID Mini product family from certgate, one of the leading German IT security providers for secure mobile 2-factor authentication, to its product portfolio. AirID is the leading smart card reader in the mobile sector and combines the security recognized by the BSI with a unique user-friendliness.

“With the innovative AirID Bluetooth SmartCard readers, we significantly increase and expand the flexibility of our MakroSmartID service offering. The decisive advantage for our customers is the significantly increased usability for their employees, who can now easily identify and log on via smart card over Bluetooth without a tiresome cable, contactless and at the same time with a secure second factor. This not only increases security in everyday mobile life, but also employee satisfaction,” says Dominique Walter, head of Cloud Services & Solutions at Makro Factory.

“We at certgate GmbH are very pleased that we are able to offer Makro Factory GmbH & Co. KG as a new, strong value added reseller for our AirID product family”, says Mathias Horn, Head of Sales at certgate.

“Makro Factory has extensive knowledge in the user/user PKI environment and is an ideal partner to present the advantages and proven benefits of the wireless AirID readers to other companies”, he adds.

What is MakroSmartID?

With MakroSmartID you get a platform for secure logon methods, regardless of whether you are dealing with smartcards, RFID access, mobile 2 factor logon, push logon, 2 factor hard disk encryption, email encryption or pure user/(web)server certificate management – even in areas with many users and different access rights. The security of your workstations, information, data and (cloud) services is increased by the use of a second independent factor (2-factor authentication based on knowledge and possession) and at the same time usability is enhanced by eliminating password changes and SingelSignOn.

In connection with the full service of Makro Factory you do not need any special know-how. The entire platform operation, all licenses, possible smartcards and the Makro Factory Service Desk where you can request questions/answers and help are included in the service and you don’t have to worry about anything. The security remains completely controllable from your side. Even the implementation of our solution is a breeze due to our onboarding flat rates.
