SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, May 14, 2013 - Identive Group,

access to banking and cashless payment applications. For government
agencies and other high assurance environments, the CLOUD 2700 supports
cyber security initiatives.

'The CLOUD 2700 reader offers a new level of performance for the hundreds
of millions of contact smart cards currently used for PC logon, as well as
for the growing base of contact cards for banking, payment and identity
management. User convenience was also an important focus in the development
of the new reader and as a result the CLOUD 2700 is more interoperable and
faster than any other device in the market,' said Dr. Manfred Mueller,

contact, contactless, dual interface and integrated readers, providing a
broad range of infrastructure options for large system roll-outs.'

and enhanced security for sensitive data. The reader is fully compliant
with the ISO7816 standard so works with any contact smart card. It is CCID
