Precise Biometrics today announced a partnership with Thursby Software, further enhancing Thursby’s security initiatives with the integration of a smart casing solution for mobile devices from Precise Biometrics. Thursby will use the solution with its PKard™ suite of iPad and iPhone apps to provide highly secure and convenient access to websites requiring strong authentication on mobile devices for the commercial and government sector.
“We are very excited to announce our partnership with Thursby,” said Precise Biometrics’ CEO, Thomas Marschall. “We are expecting that the mobile security market will see a triple digit market growth for emerging authentication technologies in 2012. With this surge, we are seeing more and more potential for partners such as Thursby taking advantage of our solution’s secure platform and smart casing with its built-in smart card reader and fingerprint sensor.”
The smart casing solution fulfills a need for users who want to access secure networks or services using their mobile device, but are restricted from doing so because they cannot authenticate as required. The smart casing fit seamlessly over the device, filling a void in the mobile security arena by enabling developers to build smart card, fingerprint authentication, or both, into virtually any type of app for the most popular mobile devices. At the same time, the smart casing solution makes authentication easier and more convenient for users.
Thursby has been pleased with the exciting possibilities of the smart casing solution and can now offer apps leveraging its capabilities for secure mobile computing.
