Thursby Software Systems Announces Release of PKard Reader Case for iPhone 7 and iPhone 8

Friday, January 19, 2018 (Arlington, Texas) - Thursby Software Systems officially released for sale the first case reader for iPhone 7/8 today. Similar to the iPhone 6/6S case, it provides a sleek yet sturdy shell around the phone with a slot on the back where you can fully insert your Common Access Card (CAC) or Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card. A Micro-USB port on the bottom of the reader allows you to charge your phone while in the case using the included Micro-USB cable.

All of Thursby Software’s Apple readers, including the new iPhone 7/8 case, come bundled with a Sub Rosa license. Sub Rosa allows users to securely browse to two-factor websites such as DTS, NROWS, and AKO. It also includes the ability to sign, encrypt, and decrypt email (S/MIME) using their Enhanced OWA Viewer. With browser, email, and calendar all available in one place, Sub Rosa makes it possible to work remotely without the hassle or bulk of a laptop.

This case is the latest in a diverse line-up of mobile CAC readers provided by Thursby Software Systems. Cases for iPads and the Samsung Galaxy S7 are also available. Customers who are not interested in using a case can choose from a variety of Apple and Android dongle readers. These readers give users the flexibility to use the same reader on both their phone and tablet, cutting down on equipment costs.
