and government sectors, there is a growing need for an easy and secure solution
that allows employee-owned devices to be used to authenticate employee IDs. Our
iAuthenticate reader does just that, enabling authentication of corporate or
even highly secure federally-issued smart identification credentials using an
Apple iPad or iPhone," said Louis Modell, vice president of Identification
Products for group. "iAuthenticate helps companies protect their digital assets
while allowing employees to use their personal devices to accomplish work tasks
both within and outside the office. For the millions of employees and
contractors of the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security and
other U.S. Government agencies, iAuthenticate enables secure logon to federal
websites and web-based accounts and email without the need to carry a laptop or
return to their offices. Having the 'made for Apple devices' logo on our
iAuthenticate packaging signals that the reader is Apple-tested and approved,
which is an important step for market adoption."

high-security organizations, Identive's iAuthenticate reader is bundled at no
additional cost with Thursby Software's PKard® Reader secure browsing app,
