Authentication and secure transactions specialist Neowave has launched Holdeo Connected Badge Holder, a smart card reader armed with Bluetooth low energy and USB-C connectivity.
It connects a PC (in USB mode) with a nomadic terminal smartphone or tablet in BLE mode. It can be used with all smart card applications such as electronic signature, authentication, encryption, e-health or digital identity.
The Holdeo Connected Badge Holder supports Windows, MacOS, Linux, Unix, Android 6.0+ and iOS 13+ operating systems. It also holds a provision of an SDK for Android and iOS with secure mode, using 256-bit AES encryption, to protect communications between the mobile and the Connected Card Holder.
UK-based enterprise IT solutions company Open Seas will distribute Holdeo.
“Bluetooth is a feature widely available on most devices, thus making the Holdeo an accessible product for professionals that need secure contactless authentication, but do not have NFC on their device. As we enter the ‘passwordless’ age, card readers and other security keys will be amongst the essential devices that businesses and their staff use on an everyday basis to protect their sensitive information,” comments Open Seas director Jason Kent.
“With cyber security threats on the rise and many organisations still relying on passwords to protect their sensitive information, it is essential that businesses have easy access to modern tools to enhance their security,” comments Neowave president Bruno Bernard.
Neowave also produces the Badgeo Fido2 smart card, which enables contactless authentication via NFC, and has recently launched the Winkeo-C Fido2 security key.
The Winkeo-C key enables multi-factor authentication with online services and applications from fixed and mobile terminals.
