With its ability to read FIPS-201 based credentials (PIV, PIV-I, CIV, CAC, TWIC), the readers empower agencies to realize the full potential of government-issued credentials.


Using a secure browser connection, end users can manage enterprise installations and network-based firmware upgrades from a central location, allowing for easy set up and deployment on large systems through the use of configuration files.
