Apriva, a provider of end-to-end wireless transactions and secure information solutions, will showcase several advanced technologies, including its newly-released secure communications suite (SCS), and its Apriva Reader™ Bluetooth-capable smart card reader (SCR), at the 10th Annual Smart Card Alliance Government Conference, scheduled for Nov. 2 to 4, 2011 at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. Apriva will exhibit at booth 505 throughout the conference.
"The Smart Card Alliance Government Conference provides a unique opportunity for Apriva to demonstrate its leading end-to-end mobile communications security solutions which are perfectly suited for government and enterprise customers that must maintain seamless and vigorous security practices,” said Jeff Ford, president of Apriva ISS in a prepared statement. "Organizations of all types are under threat from malicious attacks that can compromise, intercept, or eavesdrop on sensitive voice and data communications. Apriva’s fully-managed security solutions provide strong multi-factor authentication and encryption of sensitive communications that protects and insulates those organizations which are most vulnerable to attack.”
Apriva’s secure communications suite incorporates highly secure voice and mobile S/MIME email technologies to create a seamless end-to-end secure mobile communications solution that can address the needs of businesses and governments at all levels. Combined with Apriva’s strong encryption and authentication technologies, SCS helps ensure the identity of users and that communications are hardened against interception or compromise.
Already in use by U.S. and international government agencies, the Apriva Reader is a wearable Bluetooth-capable SCR that delivers mobile communications security for a wide array of mobile devices, including those using Android™, BlackBerry® and Windows Mobile® operating systems. It can be used independently with other applications, or operate as an integral component of Apriva’s fully-managed SCS delivering unparalleled end-to-end secure wireless communications. The flexibility afforded by the Apriva Reader, and the strictest operational parameters, ensure that it addresses the requirements of private enterprises as well as federal, state, and local government agencies.
Employing strongly encrypted Bluetooth technology, the Apriva Reader provides access to sensitive user identification, biometrics, certificates and records from the smart card with maximum integrity and confidence. It is ISO compliant, and supports all common access cards (CACs), Personal Identification Verification (FIPS 201 PIV) smart cards, as required by Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12).
