Company demonstrates its biometric identification technology at tradeshow


WALL, N.J. , April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International, a leader in finger-based biometric identification and wireless public safety solutions announced today that the company is showcasing its fingerprint biometric products at the 2009 RSA Conference Exposition. This prestigious information security event is being held at the Moscone Conference Center on April 21st - April 24th in San Francisco, CA. BIO-key will demonstrate its state-of-the-art identification solutions, based on its patented, award winning biometric technology, in the Initiative for Open AuTHentication (OATH) Pavilion, booth 2037.

BIO-key is a proud member of OATH, the industry's leading collaboration of device, platform and application companies, and end user customers of authentication technologies. At RSA, BIO-key will demonstrate a wide spectrum of solutions that have been successfully deployed using BIO-key's authentication software. Some of the more notable recent BIO-key deployments include: The US Federal Court Electronic Reporting Kiosks, point-of-sale offerings from Radiant Systems, the Bangladesh Voter registration system (with 80+ million people enrolled) and McKesson's AcuDose-Rx(R) automated medication cabinets. These solutions leverage the superior accuracy and scalability of the BIO-key biometric identity software. Additionally, BIO-key identity solutions are integrated with Oracle Access Manager and CA Siteminder platforms. All BIO-key identity deployments can take advantage of BIO-key's finger reader independence and interoperability that allow users to select the appropriate fingerprint reader from any of the major manufacturers.

BIO-key will feature their newest release of WEB-key(R), with Citrix Platform support across a single virtual channel interface. This unique solution can be easily deployed into any application to positively identify users before allowing access to valuable corporate resources, web portals or applications. Less secure usernames, passwords or PINs can be easily augmented or replaced with a simple swipe of a user's finger to establish positive identity. This capability is a significant improvement in both convenience and security and provides organizations with a cost effective competitive advantage to thwart phishing attacks and comply with regulations such as FIPS 201 credentialing, FFIEC compliance, HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley, Visa PCI, and the E-Sign Electronic Signatures Act.

BIO-key solutions enable IT professionals, vertical solution providers, OEMs, and integrators to quickly implement a convenient and secure biometric user identification solution into any new or existing application.
