FaceKey Earns Patent for Fingerprint Verification System

Patent enables biometric company's database search function for larger enterprises


SAN ANTONIO - FaceKey Corporation, a manufacturer of biometric-based ID management products for access control, time and attendance and muster stations, announced today that their patent application, US 7,212,655 B2, for a fingerprint verification system, was issued Tuesday, May 1, 2007.

This patent builds on a previously issued FaceKey patent, US 6,963,659 B2, which established the software basis for searching a large database of authorized users using two biometric identifiers. The most recent patent will strengthen FaceKey's position in the marketplace by allowing us to serve larger customers, such as large corporations and government agencies with ID management products based on off the shelf hardware that do not require a non-biometric identifier such as a card or a PIN.
