By the Thursby Team

Now that Identiv and Thursby have joined forces, government-grade bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and mobile security may never be the same. Thursby by Identiv software solutions provide strong security for enterprise and personal mobility, supporting BYOD and two-factor authentication (2FA) on mobile devices.

But here are the details that really have people talking:

  1. Always an American brand — For over 30 years, U.S.-owned and operated Thursby by Identiv has been providing secure information access for government and enterprise customers.
