Precise Biometrics Builds Ecosystem for Mobile Device Security
Precise Biometrics recently integrated its Tactivo products with a global ecosystem of technology partners that create authentication applications.
Tactivo products validate the security of mobile devices that employees use at work (the BYOD trend) using a combination of smart card readers and fingerprint scanners to safeguard sensitive company information. With the integration of this ecosystem, Precise Biometrics can now offer applications on users’ iOS or Android devices that enhance Tactivo’s basic features.
New apps include email encryption, access to a secure internet browser, government-issued smart card verification, secure intracompany app deployment, and secure information-sharing apps for more streamlined workflow.
“We will continue to grow this ecosystem as broadly as possible so that our customers have many options and will recognize a fast return on investment for their mobility initiatives utilizing Tactivo,” says Jeff Scott, vice president of sales–Americas.
Precise Biometrics encourages developers outside the official ecosystem to build their own secure apps for Tactivo by requesting a toolkit.
