NEW YORK , July 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IDO Security, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: IDOI), developer of the innovative MagShoe(TM) "shoes-on" weapons metal detection system, today announced its first customer in the US through its regional distribution partner, Bryant Integrated Technologies (http://www.bryantintegrated.com). The customer is one of the world's largest commercial cruise lines, which will use MagShoe on its ships to significantly reduce passenger waiting lines while improving security -- especially in high-pressure situations like re-boarding from a port of call in time for departure.
MagShoe addresses a key vulnerability in walkthrough metal detectors and other screening technologies, which stop just above the ankles when scanning for concealed weapons. The portable, user-friendly device extends metal detection to include the lower extremities, covering everything from four inches above the ankles to the bottoms of the feet -- without requiring passengers to remove their shoes, thanks to a patented "step-in" design.
"The fact that MagShoe has attracted a major client so soon after launching in the US is a testament to the tremendous need for this product to improve security measures across a range of industries," said Gal Ben-David, President of Bryant, which specializes in high-end security projects and services. "MagShoe has already struck a chord with a number of our clients in the travel and other high-security markets, and we expect many others to follow suit."
"We are extremely excited to mark this major milestone in the US market, and look forward to continuing to work with Bryant to bring MagShoe to businesses across the country," said Michael Goldberg , President and Director of IDO Security. "MagShoe is poised to change the security experience from top to bottom, allowing cruise lines, airports and others to conduct a more thorough and accurate scan, without delaying or inconveniencing travelers."
