Precise Biometrics Partner Good Technology Announces New Secure Email Solution for iOS Devices Using Tactivo™
The company’s partner, Good Technology, has launched its Good Vault™ app, which can be used with Precise Biometrics’ Tactivo™ Smart Card & Fingerprint Reader for the iPhone®. Good Vault extends strong two-factor authentication and Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) email signing and encryption to Good for Enterprise™ to enhance data protection.
Tactivo Smart Card & Fingerprint Reader is part of the Good Vault solution, which is the first product built on the newly introduced Good Trust™ mobile identity and access management (IAM) platform. Good Vault extends strong two-factor authentication and S/MIME security to Good’s award-winning Good for Enterprise™ email application.
Leveraging Good Vault, highly regulated organizations in the government, healthcare and financial services industries can more effectively battle escalating mobile security threats while meeting compliance regulations. The new solution was unveiled at the Gartner Identity and Access Management Summit taking place December 3-5, 2012, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Good Vault leverages Tactivo to provide strong authentication when using a smart card for access to Good for Enterprise, enabling the encryption and signing of mobile email messages to ensure privacy and integrity.
Good also selected Tactivo for Good Vault because of its sleek design and ease of use. Tactivo adds a smart card reader and fingerprint sensor to the iOS devices in the form of a casing that maintains the Apple aesthetic and adds minimally to the device footprint and weight. Easy and convenient, users can also charge and synchronize the device without removing Tactivo.
“As one of the leading providers of secure email, Good understands the requirements and needs of users, from the technology behind the best solutions to how to make it easy and convenient,” said Thomas Marschall, President & CEO of Precise Biometrics. “Good’s choice of Tactivo for smart card authentication to Good Vault underscores the many possibilities of Tactivo. Its user-centric design combined with its integration capabilities for virtually any iOS app make it the clear choice for industry leaders like Good.”
Marschall added, “We are of course very pleased with Good Technology’s choice of Tactivo. Given both companies’ strong presence within U.S. Federal Government markets and focus on healthcare and financial services, we expect to see quick adoption of the combined solution.”
Good Vault is immediately available for download in the iTunes App Store. End users must first be licensed for Good for Enterprise and Good Vault to activate the application.
