Tactivo™ is now FIPS 201 certified by US Government Services Administration (GSA)
Tactivo is the first and so far only mobile smart card reader which has been FIPS 201 certified for the GSA Approved Products List
CEO & President of Precise Biometrics, Thomas Marschall says: “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”.
Certification and approval by GSA enables US Government agencies to comply with OMB M 11-11 mandates requiring all Federal employees to utilize their PIV cards when accessing Government resources.
