CEO & President of Precise Biometrics, Thomas Marschall stated “This certification is of tremendous importance for all PIV related purchases by government agencies and contractors. We consider the certification to be fully in sync with the forthcoming mobile mandates, which are expected to require the use of PIV or CAC credentials when accessing secure government applications from a mobile device. Being the first and only certified mobile smart card reader supports our sales ambitions in this field as it will also help all of our partners in their sales efforts.”

 

Tactivo can now be found on the GSA Approved Product List (APL) at http://fips201ep.cio.gov/apl.php, designating the smart card and fingerprint reader compliant with all FIPS 201 mandates, CAC and OMB M 11-11 mandates, which requires all federal employees to utilize their PIV cards when accessing government resources. Additionally, these designations also signifiy that Tactivo is complaint with HSPD-12 and is available for purchase by government agencies and/ or their procurement agents.

 

“We’re pleased to have met a huge milestone with the designation by GSA for Tactivo as an approved FIPS 201 certified device. This product was conceived to enable iOS devices to meet the HSPD-12 and DOD directives for PIV and CAC authentication. We are now looking forward to helping the U.S. government roll out mobile solutions for workplace-as-a-service, VDI, secure VPN, and e-authentication as incorporated into their BYOD initiative.” Michael Harris, CTO/SVP North America sales.

 

With the migration from desktop computers to mobile devices, federal agencies continue to face the challenge of applying the same authentication requirements to mobile devices that employees are already required to use on their desktops. The Tactivo solution enables the migration to mobile devices while preserving the necessary security and authentication policies. Tactivo’s functionality, elegantly combines increased end-user convenience and personalized security.
