Arlington, TX, April 11, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- With the PKard Reader app, the web connection is fully encrypted and secure. Two-factor login (chip ID card and PIN) is much safer than using passwords, and is a requirement for strong user authentication for many government, military, police, finance, energy, healthcare, Fortune 500 and Global 2000 organizations in their secure-cloud-mobility deployments. Support for iAuthenticate is not just limited to secure browsing but encompasses the secure PKard SDK ecosystem of secure S/MIME email, document signing, VPN, MDM, VDI and custom app development solutions either directly, or with partners. Bill Thursby, President of Thursby Software, explains, "we appreciate the opportunity to work with the well-respected Identive Group, broadening our Apple security and smart card software offerings to support the new iAuthenticate iPad/iPhone reader."
The app is available immediately as a free download on Apple’s iTunes app store, bundled at no additional cost with every iAuthenticate reader. iAuthenticate is designed for use with the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad (3rd generation), iPad 2 and iPad running iOS 6.0 or higher. Additionally, an add-on adapter enables compatibility with the iPhone 5, iPad 4th generation and iPad mini. The readers are available now from Identive and its authorized resellers.
