BlackBerry Smart Card Reader

The BlackBerry Smart Card Reader is designed to solve a fundamental security concern for organizations, helping eliminate unauthorized access to unlocked computers and BlackBerry smartphones. Instead of inserting the smart card into a stationary reader or bulky peripheral attachment which can easily be left behind, users insert a smart card into this lightweight reader and wear it on a lanyard, causing smartphones and computers to lock when the user is not in proximity. The BlackBerry Smart Card Reader works with certificates on smart cards to leverage your organization's S/MIME infrastructure and is designed to enable your employees to digitally sign and encrypt messages on either their BlackBerry smartphones or computers to provide sender-to-recipient security.
