90Meter Works with 10ZiG for Secure Smart Card Authentication Support and Endpoints for Hi-Assurance Network Access

10ZiG & 90M

10ZiG® Technology expands its reach in the federal space with support for CAC and Hi-Assurance smartcard authentication in its firmware for 10ZiG® Zero Client endpoints.

90Meter Software with 10ZiG Zero Client Endpoints

Known for the sole focus of Thin & Zero Client endpoint hardware and software for over 17 years now, 10ZiG® Technology has effectively supported every industry sector - including Federal - as part of their virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) custom solutions. Adding to the 10ZiG Federal line-up of successes is the highly anticipated, latest addition of CAC and Hi-Assurance smartcard authentication for hi-side network access, built into NOS™ Zero Client firmware. With 10ZiG and 90meter together, secure authentication no longer has to mean slow. Smarter, faster smart card software combined with the power, speed, and performance of 10ZiG® endpoints, is technology that federal entities can really put into operation.

90meter software complies with applicable standards, including: FIPS 201-1, US DoD CAC Middleware Requirements, GlobalPlatform, PKCS 7-12, 2048-bit RSA, and Section 508. The PIV Minidriver, is Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201 certified middleware, meeting Personal Identity Verification (PIV) I & II standards and meets SP 800-73 for technical specifications to interface with the smart card to retrieve and use identity credentials.

90Meter General Manager on Integration with 10ZiG

Matthew Vanselow, 90meter Inc General Manager, “Delivering solutions to the U.S. government in order to achieve their mission is our top focus at 90meter. The integration of 90meter’s SCM and 10ZiG Thin Clients ensures a secure, smooth, and easy-to-use endpoint solution for those protecting our national security.”

Ben Burris, 10ZiG® Director of Federal Sales, “The benefits of the smart card authentication are of course, extremely safe access to Hi-Assurance networks, but add to that the benefits of 10ZiG, and you have the potential for large numbers of devices with the highest security, management, and performance standards for military use. Additionally, the 90meter partnership is ongoing, so smart cards now and smart cards in the future will be adapted.”

10ZiG® endpoints are specifically designed to fit the needs of governmental/federal entities. The broad selection of VMware Certified ready endpoints with free enterprise management software are proving to be in demand for military and government installations. Devices are available on Linux and Windows 10 IoT based platforms on x86 Intel/AMD hardware and with features including the free 10ZiG Manager™, advance warranty, acclaimed tech support, and renowned R&D response to leading VDI firmware upgrades.
