Go mobile with IOGEAR's Portable Common Access Card Reader. Our latest Common Access Card (CAC) reader is the perfect communications medium between a CAC or "Smart Card" and a host (e.g. a computer or a point-of-sale terminal). The slim design of the GSR203 features a tuck-away USB cable and fits easily into your backpack, briefcase, or even pocket to make transportation effortless.
A Common Access Card or "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 (integrated chip) in the Smart 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 factor security that is more secure than passwords alone.
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 & 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.
Government, healthcare, banking, and entertainment industries require secure logins / authentication to access information, sensitive data, or private areas. Smart Cards are the next step in this convenience and security.
