Precise Biometrics wins first deal with U.S. government
Precise Biometrics has signed its first U.S. Government related purchase orders for Tactivo and is set to implement pilot projects across the federal government’s military and civilian agencies. Initial orders are expected to start in the late third and fourth quarters of 2012 and will probably increase in 2013, as more pilot programs are expected.
Upon successful completion of the pilot programs, Precise Biometrics looks forward to more purchase orders as Tactivo will be considered for deployment at other federal offices across the United States.
Thomas Marschall, chief executive officer of Precise Biometrics, said: “We are excited to see these first orders and pilot projects get underway so widely within the U.S. Federal Government market. Our breakthrough solution will enable the migration to mobile devices while preserving the necessary security and authentication policies that are required by Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-12. Because the mandate covers all federal employees, we expect other agencies will also consider deploying Tactivo after seeing the success of these first pilot programs.”
Tactivo technology is a smart casing that offers additional layer of security to various gadgets via smart card and fingerprint authentication. Precise Biometrics has expanded Tactivo’s offerings to mobile devices such as tablets and smart phones, in view of the current “bring your own device” trend. With Tactivo, a client can quickly store confidential data and other pertinent documents without fear of accidental disclosure.
Earlier this year, Tactivo has secured its first Tactivo order from a Europe-based car company.
Do you find Tactivo’s additional smart casing with built-in fingerprint security in tablets and smart phones an appealing product?
