On June 2, 2019, Jeremy Grant was featured on Government Matters discussing the Office of Management and Budget's new policy for identity management, and how it could mean the end of security cards as we know them.

"On the enterprise side, one area that I know a lot of agencies I've talked to are quite interested in are alternative approaches to authentication," Grant said. "We have been tied to smart cards, PKI certificates for 10-15 years now. The market has really evolved. Like the FIDO standards that are being embedded in every device from Microsoft and Google and running those operational systems. This gives agencies additional flexibilities to use different kinds of authentication that still align with NIST guidance on authentication. You will see pilots there where, maybe for mobile devices, they will look to shake things up little bit," said Grant.
