Arlington, TX, September 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Precise Biometrics, a leading provider of biometric authentication technology for mobile device security, announced today that it is releasing its innovative Tactivo smart casing for the iPhone and iPad in combination with the proven secure browsing software from industry veteran Thursby Software, a specialist in Apple enterprise integration, management, and security.
The new Tactivo/PKard bundle combines the everyday usability of the Tactivo smart card reader and fingerprint sensor hardware with the PKard Reader v1.1 app for access to Web email, portals, and collaboration sites with two-factor CAC or PIV smart card authentication and FIPS 140-2 security.
Special introductory pricing of $249 for the iPhone bundle and $299 for the iPad bundle ($50 off the regular bundle price) creates breakthrough value for any Federal budget. The secure PKard Reader v1.1 app is currently available free on Apple’s App Store, and future releases will be available exclusively to bundle purchasers at no additional cost.
In this period of increasing need for secure mobility, the new bundle offers the possibility of upgrading functionality and/or retiring legacy laptops and/or older mobile devices in one simple and affordable step since existing cards, server infrastructure and processes are leveraged rather than replaced.
