What is a RFID Blocking Card Holder?
These devices are essentially a shielded holder that can stop thieves from accessing any possibly sensitive data. This data is stored on these devices via a 13.56 MHz decoder that reacts when it comes into contact with a radio signal transmitted by a device using ISM radio frequencies. The card then acts as an antenna and capacitor, which couples with the circuit and transmits data over.
You only want this to happen at specific times, so the shield blocks HF band RFID transmissions from occurring until the card is taken out of its badge holder. The card itself will be unable to react with the electromagnetic field that’s generated by these kinds of systems, which helps to ensure that you won’t experience any data leaks.
Protect Your Information With Secure Care Holders
Over time, there have been a number of individuals who’ve developed ways of surreptitiously collecting information remotely, simply by standing near somebody. An RFID blocking badge holder will be able to foil these attempts. This level of security works whether you have a MIFARE, iCLASS, PIV, TWIC or CAC device. It should also work with electronic passports and other similar technologies.
It’s also not limited to only a single frequency. An increasingly large percentage of devices operate on the 902-928 MHz range, which also represents a shared location with amateur radio. In many cases, a certain amount of metallic substance will block transmissions at these frequencies as well, which can provide peace of mind to those who need it.
Why Do You Need RFID Blocking Badge Holders?
Today the idea of security is more prevalent in our society than it ever has been, and for good reason. There are things in our life that we have to protect than we have ever had to worry about, and at the same time, there are more ways for our security to be violated than there have ever been. The last several years have given us a new set of terms to our lexicon, including cybersecurity, credential cloning, NFC skimming, and more. The rise of these concepts is linked to new technologies that have arisen, which, while making our lives easier in so many ways, also open us up to new vulnerabilities that were not existent even less than a decade ago.
Perhaps the biggest security threat to many businesses and organizations these days has nothing to do with computers, property theft, or even corporate espionage, at least not directly, the real threat is credential cloning. The idea of credential cloning is not new, but in the past, it wasn’t exactly easy to do it. These days someone need only be close enough to you or your employee with a device as big as a deck of playing cards and they can read and store the access information from ID badges and passcards so they can make an exact usable duplicate of their own in minutes.
The best way to prevent this type of credential cloning is to use an RFID shielded badge holder. These holders are designed to not only keep your badge in a convenient and easy to access way but to also protect them from RFID cloning by blocking the scanning of their NFC signals by portable scanners. This helps to protect your organization and its location from unauthorized access from parties who are using faked credentials.
Security Credit Card & ID Holders
RFID blocking shielded badge holders come in a variety of styles. Here at Specialist ID, we carry a wide variety of different styles ranging from sleeves for cards and passports, to dual-sided badge holders in a variety of sizes and colors. These badge holders make it easy for you to have access to your badge while preventing those who would steal your information from being able to.
Over time, those who would want to crack into computerized data systems have gotten a great deal more crafty. Cracking into these systems, however, often requires at least some level of ID information. By making sure to provide a blocking badge protector in this way, you can help to offer a greater level of overall digital security in the process. In fact, you might be able to justify whatever tiny additional cost is in question merely by paying close attention to this aspect.
For instance, some people might not think that investing in such a piece of equipment for each individual badge isn’t really all that worth it. However, keep in mind that your data is unquestionably worth a great deal of money and that means that you could be saving quite a bit in the long-term considering what might happen if there were ever a breach. At the same time, we’ve made sure to offer competitive prices so you won’t at all have to worry about this sort of thing, to begin with anyway.
