“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,” Thomas Marschall, president & CEO of Precise Biometrics said. “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 is the clear choice for industry leaders like Good.”

Good Technology is not the first company to leverage the biometric capacity of the Tactivo Smart Card Reader. In October, Security software provider Intercede launched its MyID CardChecker app, designed for government agencies and enterprises to display electronic information from smart cards.
