Quick Overview

Original Blackberry Universal Smart Card Reader, PRD-16951-001 - Black


The BlackBerry® Smart Card Reader is designed to allow mobile personnel to meet operational requirements for using multi-factor authentication with Bluetooth®-enabled Microsoft® Windows® computers, BlackBerry® smartphones, PKI applications and for highly secure web browsing—without negatively impacting the user experience. The BlackBerry Smart Card Reader can replace serial or USB based card readers, even if your organization has not deployed a BlackBerry solution. This enables you to benefit from un-tethered access to your smart card credentials from your desktop or laptop computer.


Prevent Unauthorized Access


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.


S/MIME Support


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.


Advanced Security Features


When used with the BlackBerry® Enterprise Solution, the BlackBerry Smart Card Reader supports advanced security features to help meet IT and public sector requirements, including:



  • AES-256 encryption

  • FIPS 140-2 validated encryption module

  • S/MIME support

  • Wireless IT policy enforcement on smartphones
