HP Security Jacket: Enhanced identity and network protection for HP ElitePad

The new HP Security Jacket adds critical functionality to the HP ElitePad, HP’s Windows 8 commercial tablet. It allows device and network access only to those with approved access through single- or multi-factor user authentication via a thin and light jacket design. Ideal for government, healthcare and security-sensitive corporate environments, the TAA-compliant Security Smart Jacket includes a Smart Card Reader that allows FIPS 140-2 encryption solutions and offers an optional fingerprint reader, both of which meet FIPS 201 requirements.

Additionally, the HP Security Jacket offers USB 3.0 and HDMI ports for convenient connectivity. Paired with HP’s included Device Access Manager software with Just In Time authentication, the jacket’s USB port can be easily secured for limited, authorized use of removable storage devices during a brief allotted time after authentication. The HP Security Jacket is compatible with the HP ElitePad dock for easy desktop productivity with dual display support.
