Mobile Smart Credential Supports Today’s Most Popular Mobile Platforms

Our award-winning Mobile Smart Credential application, which transforms your mobile phone into a virtual smart card digital identity, can now be used to perform smart card login to Apple Mac laptops and desktops connecting over Bluetooth LE.

As of May 31, 2018, Apple Mac users can enjoy the same password-less, friction-less, high-assurance login experience that Microsoft Windows users have been able to experience by leveraging the very same virtual smart card credential on their iOS and Android phones and tablets.

Entrust Datacard has also made this unique feature available to partner integrators, EMM and MDM providers via its Mobile Smart Credential SDK to allow enterprises to extend the functionality available in their existing EMM and MDM infrastructures to easily, and securely, access their desktops and laptops without the need for a physical smart card.

This capability also extends to the integrated derived PIV credential solution which allows organizations to secure remote access to enterprise networks and applications via certificate-based authentication. This allows a mobile workforce, remote and branch offices, and other employees who may telework, to safely access business services using their mobile devices — all in a way that leverages an HSPD-12 PKI based credential.
