Identity and security is our corporate DNA

The AVISIAN team includes a group of identity technology experts working alongside seasoned journalists, web and graphics professionals. Together, they create a unique combination – coupling the technology insight of a leading consultancy with the communication capabilities of a high-end communication and design firm.


In 2000, AVISIAN launched its initial publication as a vehicle to promote the company’s consulting efforts. The rapid success of CampusIDNews (formerly CR80News) led to the creation of an entire division within the company focused exclusively on identity and security technology publishing.


The team specializes in helping companies launch products and issuers rollout projects related to identity, security and credentialing technologies. Startups and Fortune 500 companies, leading financial institutions and Federal agencies, local colleges and Ivy League institutions have all turned to AVISIAN to ensure their products and projects succeed.

Communication services

Identity and security expertise is complemented by a creative team of copywriting, marketing and design professionals. This uniquely positions AVISIAN to assist organizations with messaging and marketing around identity technologies. Leading trade associations, vendors and issuing organizations rely on the team to craft messaging, design web and print materials, and craft go-to-market approaches.


With unmatched reach into the identity and security community, AVISIAN has managed dedicated events and cooperated with others on both physical and virtual events. Longstanding trust with both exhibitors and attendees is nurtured through constant outreach from the publishing division. The team also delivers unique thought leadership in key areas such as credentialing, identity management, multi-factor authentication and more.


As the leading source for insight on technologies, products and players in the higher ed credential, security, and payment markets, CampusIDNews serves an extremely targeted yet crucial niche market. The publication covers both well-established and cutting-edge technologies – from magnetic stripe and barcodes to smart cards, biometrics and mobile IDs. Though higher education is the core target of the publication, K-12 (primary and secondary education) campuses and corporate campuses are also represented in both the content and audience.

We help companies launch products in the identity, security and credentialing space

We have helped private companies rolling out digital identity solutions, campus card systems and peripheral security products; financial institutions launching advanced payment solutions; Federal government and defense agencies defining large-scale ID card offerings; and more. A focus is helping new entrants build relationships with large integrators and developers to bring peripheral contactless or other card-based solutions to market.


We help organizations launch projects to identify, authenticate and secure their populations and facilities

We have advised dozens of campuses large and small, public and private to deploy or refine student ID card systems; state agencies selecting new identity and security systems; and private companies evaluating multifunction ID card options and accompanying security infrastructures.
