Swedish biometric software and hardware firm Precise Biometrics has won an order of Tactivo mobile smart card readers from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) within the US Department of Defense.

The value of the order is 1.1 million SEK (US$132,000) and will impact fourth quarter revenues 2015 and first quarter revenues 2016.

The firm noted in a statement that the DLA “continues to invest in their mobility solution that provides secure e-mail and browsing capabilities on iOS devices”.

The solution is based on the existing Common Access Card (CAC) infrastructure and adds to the overall usability of the long standing smart card system. The order, which has been placed through Precise Biometrics’ partner TX Systems, includes Tactivo for iPhone devices.

“The interest in Tactivo is increasing within the US government. We are pleased to see that DLA continues to scale up their usage of Tactivo for convenient and secure mobile access to information systems and resources. The solution increases employee flexibility and efficiency, while ensuring a high level of security by utilizing two-factor authentication”, says Håkan Persson, CEO of Precise Biometrics.
