AirID Loves Apple – New Wireless Smartcard Reader for MacOS

World’s First Wireless Smartcard Reader with MacOS CryptoTokenKit Support for 2-factor Authentication, Encryption and Electronic Signature

Dusseldorf/Germany, 02nd October 2019, certgate, one of the leading specialists for mobile security, announces the world’s first wireless smart card reader AirID with support for Apple MacOS systems with CryptoTokenKit (CTK). This means that AirID will be supported in the Apple MacOS platform for the long term and smart cards can be used more flexibly.

With the current MacOS “Mojave” Apple has finalised the new, trend-setting CTK interface for security tokens. This will be further expanded in the new MacOS version “Catalina” and enables a very deep integration of AirID into the Apple operating system. For example, smart cards can be used wirelessly via Bluetooth for system services such as secure 2-factor logon to the Mac system, approval of authorisations, electronic signatures with Adobe Acrobat and for all other applications.

The AutoLock function integrated in the AirID and AirID Mini is of course also available, so the Mac system is automatically locked when removed from the system. This means additional security is automatically built in and the user benefits from automatic protection.

Currently, AirID MacOS support is being tested as BETA by selected customers and is expected to be available for all customers to download from the certgate website in the support area during November 2019.

For inquiries to the product and application possibilities the central email address “sales@certgate.com” is available.
We are looking forward to your inquiry!

Your certgate Team.
