IOGEAR Vertical USB CAC Reader / Smart Card Access Reader

Smart Cards are the next step in convenience and security. Get ready for the future with the new IOGEAR Vertical USB Smart Card Access Reader. Effortlessly scan your Smart Card with the assurance of data protection and an added layer of security. It supports multiple Smart Card protocols and relevant industry standards for digital signage and secure personal identification.

What is a Smart Card Reader?

A Smart Card is a small portable credit-card shaped pocket-sized card with embedded integrated circuits or IC chips which can process data. The combination of the small size and IC in the Samrt Card make them a valuable tool for security, data storage, and other special applications. The use of Smart Cards can improve user security by combining something a user has (the Smart Card) with something only the user should know (a PIN). This provides two level of security that is more secure than passwords alone. A Smart Card Reader is a communications medium between the smart card and a host (e.g. a computer, a point-of-sale terminal) adding a level of security to prevent unwanted users accessing the system.

Designed for Security and Accuracy

The traditional credit card uses a magnetic-strip which stores a very small amount of information and has no processing capability of its own. Smart Cards are the next generation of secure and user friendly identification, authentication and data storage solution. IOGEAR USB Smart Card Access Readers use a contact system where the card must be inserted directly into the card reader; this type of reader is less prone to misalignment and eliminates the possibility of being misread.
