Identive's IAuthenticate(TM) Reader Extends Secure ID Card Authentication To Apple(R) Mobile Devices

SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, Oct. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) (Frankfurt:INV), a provider of products and services for the identification, security and RFID industries, today announced a new smart card reader for Apple mobile devices that allows iPad®, iPhone® and iMac® users to authenticate themselves to secure networks, websites and payment systems using their smart chip-based IDs or credit cards. The initial version of the reader is targeted at the U.S. government and worldwide enterprise markets.

"Mobile computing devices are fun to use and allow people to be productive wherever they are. The popularity of the iPad in particular is creating a "bring your own device" culture as employees seek to use their personal devices to accomplish work tasks both within and outside the office. This presents security problems for organizations that maintain strict policies around network access, as these employee-owned devices typically do not have a way to read and authenticate highly secure smart card-based employee IDs. Identive's iAuthenticate reader addresses this problem by enabling authentication of corporate or federally-issued smart identification credentials using an Apple iPad, iPhone or iMac," explained Louis Modell, vice president of Identive's Identification Products division.

One of the world's largest smart card-based ID programs is operated by the U.S. federal government. However, device mobility has been elusive for the more than five million federal workers who must present their Common Access Card (CAC) or Personal Identification Verification (PIV) credentials to securely authenticate their identities whenever they log on to the network. Identive's new iAuthenticate reader allows employees and contractors of the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security and other government agencies to securely log in to federal websites and web-based accounts, access email and perform other secure collaboration activities without needing to carry a laptop or return to their offices.
