Sogeti Selects Precise Biometrics’ Tactivo™ to Securely Access Apps with Sensitive Data
As part of Sogeti's focus on mobile applications, the company has entered into a partnership with Precise Biometrics, the market-leading provider of solutions for secure mobile access.
Demand for apps that support secure login and strong authentication is increasing among both large enterprise and the public sector. Sogeti, technology consultancy and leading provider of mobile solutions, has teamed up with Precise Biometrics to enhance their respective positions in the area. Precise Biometrics’ technology can be used for ID, enterprise and bank cards, as well as access to mobile solutions, computers and networks.
In June 2012, Precise Biometrics launched a new product, Tactivo™, an intelligent sleeve for mobile devices available for the iPhone and iPad, certified by Apple. The use of the Tactivo smart casing, along with the Precise Biometrics partnership, opens up the opportunity for Sogeti to increase the development of apps and provide mobile security around the access of even the most sensitive information. One of Sogeti’s main business segments is the Swedish healthcare market. Solutions for the Swedish healthcare space must be preceded by strong authentication because they provide access to patient data via login with the so-called SITHS card. The integration of Tactivo provides Sogeti with the strong authentication needed to meet Swedish healthcare standards.
”Through collaboration between Sogeti and Precise Biometrics, the card can also be used in a mobile environment,” says Andreas Sjöström, globally responsible for Sogeti's mobile initiative. Sjöström is also responsible for Sogeti Group's global app development center in Mumbai, India.
”We are delighted that Sogeti chose to launch a technical cooperation with us. We have great respect for their expertise in app development and we feel very strongly that as partners we will see an increase in app development for the professional healthcare Swedish market, enabling both enterprises to deepen our footprint within this segment,” says Thomas Marschall, CEO of Precise Biometrics.
