Lenel Integrates Bioscrypt Technology into IdentityDefender and OnGuard 2006

Product integration enables Lenel to offer a totally converged physical and logical security solution


TORONTO, July 26 -- Bioscrypt Inc., a leading provider of identity verification technology, announced today that global security systems innovator Lenel has integrated Bioscrypt VeriSoft Access Manager into the IdentityDefender and OnGuard 2006 solutions by Lenel. Lenel is part of UTC Fire & Security, a United Technologies Corp. business unit.

Privately labelled by Lenel as IdentityEnforcer, the VeriSoft Access Manager application is one of five modules that comprise IdentityDefender, an end-to-end solution for issuing secure identity credentials (cards) to individuals using a trusted process. IdentityEnforcer is a logical access application that enables a credentialholder to log on to a computer using a finger-scan, card or both.

VeriSoft Access Manager has also been integrated into the OnGuard Total Security Knowledge Management Solution. Upon issuance of a credential, OnGuard manages the life cycles of both the cards and biometric data. VeriSoft leverages OnGuard's management capabilities to enable credentials to be used for logical access via Windows logon and single sign-on, and for physical access verification using access control readers at facility entry points.

"With VeriSoft Access Manager serving as the platform to support multiple authentication factors including fingerprint biometrics, proximity and smart cards, Lenel has demonstrated leadership in driving the convergence of physical and logical access control or the unification of access to facilities and IT networks," said Michael Regelski, chief technology officer at Lenel. "We have already begun to see strong demand for this product, and look forward to many implementations."

"There is significant evidence in the market today, such as the requirements of FIPS 201, that indicate the necessity for our Door to Desktop(R) access control solution and we are pleased to be working with an organization of Lenel's pedigree in bringing our vision to market," said Robert L. Williams, President and CEO, Bioscrypt Inc. "Lenel has been a strong partner to Bioscrypt for many years and we are encouraged by the enthusiasm they have demonstrated in adding our newest offerings to their lines of product."
