Today Palm announced the availability of a Common Access Card (CAC) solution for Palm Treo smartphones running Windows Mobile 5.0 with Direct Push Technology.
The CAC Pack from Trust Digital, a leading provider of enterprise smartphone security and management software, was officially called the Smartphone Security Version 7 CAC Pack. The CAC Pack addresses Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12, which requires all federal agencies to implement a system of smartcards that deliver a common, two-factor authentication method for physical doors, computers and smartphones in all federal buildings. Hmmm, I'm sure Jack Bauer will have the CAC Pack if he switches over to a WM Treo on "24" this coming season. Sorry, just had to throw that in since many readers enjoy watching Jack use a Treo on the show.
"The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), Homeland Security and other government agencies face mission-critical situations requiring secure mobile access to encrypted email, websites and applications," said Eric Johnson, director of public sector and strategic partners at Palm, Inc. "The CAC Pack for Windows Mobile-based Treo smartphones lets authorized personnel use their smartphones to digitally sign and encrypt/decrypt email and documents, log on to secure websites and utilize other applications that may require CAC, such as Microsoft applications. It's a powerful, turn-key way to mobilize communications and connect wirelessly and securely to IT infrastructures."
Features of the CAC Pack for Windows Mobile-based Treo Smartphones
The Smartphone Security Version 7 CAC Pack from Trust Digital is listed on U.S. General Services Agency (GSA) schedules. Prices will vary depending on GSA schedule.
