Hiving Technology is a technology innovation & consulting business, head-quartered in Dubai, UAE with regional offices located in India, United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa. Hiving Technology was established with the foresight that in a connected world, single identification of all objects and people will become a major constraint. Hiving, thus set out to develop a totally secure wireless technology that enables single identification across multiple applications, known as Hive One ID. The technology is ideally suited to be implemented for SMART CITY and E GOVERNANCE initiatives.

The Problem

There are a host of options when it comes to technology that addresses the Internet of Things. In fact, the global market is flooded with vendors offering multiple options such as RFID, NFC, Beacons etc. Yet there are a few missing pieces that prevent a seamless Internet of Everything (IoE) from coming together.

  • Secure Single Ambient Identity that links the physical, digital and virtual worlds is the missing key in the progression into the connected world.
  • Lack of privacy and security of collected data related to the person or object.
  • Lack of trusted data about a person or object.
  • Cyber and IoT Security are growing in complexity due to the lack of Single Authenticatable Identity.

The IoT space is currently application based, which means that there are multiple technologies that need to be maintained and integrated to get objects to communicate.

“There also hasn’t – until recently - been a way of assigning “One Unified ID” to anything regardless of whether it’s a person, object or animal”

The Solution

Consolidate all physical and digital identity into a single secure & private ambient identity:

  • Pointing to a secured trusted dataset about the individual or object;
  • Enabling easily individualised interactions in the physical and digital world across multiple vertical applications.

Deep Root of Trust Element on an independent identification device that can:

  • Identify people and things in a unified manner and create a single link between the person and all legacy identities;
  • Enabling a seamless user experience across all aspects of life while collecting data and building context owned by the person or legal entity but made available to service providers on permission;
  • Linking things to a person or legal entity from an ownership perspective;
  • Keeping privacy and security intact.
    • Digital Business Transformation – Moving from a Fragmented World to a Connected World

      Hiving Technology has stepped in to bridge this gap. The development that underpins the Hiving products started 35 years ago with the inventor's vision of what we call the "Internet of Things" today. Hiving Technology’s products are the fifth-generation products based on various inventions over the last 35 years including several of the world's first inventions developed by the South African inventor Terry Ashwin who has been designing products in this domain since 1978.

      Hiving Technology’s “Hive ONE ID’ is the world’s only single identification technology that can provide every person on the planet with one unique identity across multiple applications in the public and private sector such as; NATIONAL IDENTIFICATION, BANKING and LOYALTY, HEALTHCARE, HOSPITALITY, HOME and OFFICE AUTOMATION and more. Creating an integrated keyless and cardless smart society. Ensuring seamless integration of various technologies into an integrated smart solutions environment, ideally suited for NATIONAL and LOCAL GOVERNMENT INITIATIVES.
