Tactivo for iPad is the first product in the market to have a combined fingerprint and smart card reader. Precise Biometrics has developed Tactivo(TM) for mobile security and earlier this year, Tactivo designed for iPhone was unveiled.
Thomas Marschall, President and CEO of Precise Biometrics, said that the company has been waiting eagerly to get the MFi approval in place, given the substantial use of iPads within government, large enterprises, healthcare and banking. With Tactivo, employees of government agencies and companies will benefit from the high level of security and authentication whenever employees will use their mobile devices in accessing sensitive information.
Mobile security is becoming more important as more customers from government agencies, enterprises and healthcare are now using their iPhones and iPads to access and share data worldwide. Precise Biometrics is experiencing an influx of global interest in their Convenient Security offerings because of these enhancements.
“We are expecting substantial sales of both Tactivo for iPhone and Tactivo for iPad in 2012, ” said Marschall. “We have continued to increase our level of sales and marketing resources along with partner management to address the increased demand for our products and solutions.”
The first shipments of Tactivo(TM) for iPad will be in September and will be delivered from the company’s production partner in the United States. Precise Biometrics’ own app, BioSecrets, is already available in Apple’s App Store where, together with Tactivo, passwords and other sensitive information will be stored within a biometrically secured container of iPhone 4s, iPhone 4 and now iPad. It will not stop there, as more apps will be developed and launched in the future.
Precise Biometrics has also opened its Web shop which will sell smaller volumes of Tactivo. It will be for limited purchases and will be taking U.S. orders for now. This is to service the growing “Bring-Your-Own-Device” trend worldwide.
Having Tactivo tie up with Apple, will it capture the growing “Bring-Your-Own-Device” trend globally?
