RESTON, VA - Precise Biometrics, a market-leading authentication solutions provider and innovative developer of Tactivo, a smart card and fingerprint reader, announced today that the newly released Tactivo for iPhone 5 has received GSA Approval and will be added to the Approved Product List (APL) for use by U.S. government agencies and employees. Tactivo for iPhone, iPad, and Android are the first smart card readers that currently hold these designations.
Patrik Lindeberg, CTO at Precise Biometrics, stated, "This latest GSA approval of Tactivo for iPhone 5 is pivotal to our ongoing delivery of mobile authentication solutions for federal agencies. Due to the ever changing mobile technology market, we are continuously rolling out new products to supply consumers with more options for accessing secure government applications with PIV and CAC credentials from mobile device."
Tactivo for iPhone 5 joins the growing Tactivo product suite providing mobile security solutions to enable the migration to mobile devices while preserving the necessary security and authentication policies required by Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12). These policies require federal employees and contractors to use smart cards for physical and logical access to systems, as well as OMB Memorandum M-11-11, which expedited implementation of PIV cards for access to facilities, networks and information systems.
