SAFLINK Signs Denali Advanced Integration as Member of Channel Partner Program

BELLEVUE, Wash. -- SAFLINK(R) Corporation, a leading provider of biometric and smart card security solutions, today announced that Denali Advanced Integration, one of largest technology consulting firms in the Pacific Northwest, has signed on as one of the charter members of the SAFLINK Partner Program. An industry leader with a top-tier client roster that includes companies throughout the Northwest, Denali will offer the SAFLINK SAFsolution(R) software as part of its integrated security solutions for existing and new customers, specifically targeting the healthcare and financial services markets.

"Our customers have been asking for our guidance in designing and delivering a secure network environment that is user-friendly, yet meets the evolving needs of today's business market," said Miles Austin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Denali. "With its strong authentication and identity management capability, SAFLINK SAFsolution fills a gap in our product offering, particularly for the medium-size enterprise. By participating in the SAFLINK Partner Program, we can now deliver a fully integrated system that includes one of the best security products on the market -- and assist our customers' post-deployment with management and technical support."

Denali plans to introduce SAFsolution to its existing customer base first, focusing on the unique security needs of the healthcare and financial services markets. "SAFsolution has already proven its effectiveness in highly regulated industries where ease-of-use and efficiency are key customer demands," Austin explained. "For example, hospitals frequently experience many people on multiple shifts using a single computer terminal. SAFsolution not only helps better protect patient confidentiality; its identity management and mobility functions help deliver increased productivity as well."

Austin added that SAFLINK will participate in a quarterly CIO Healthcare Roundtable sponsored by Denali providing a more in-depth look at SAFsolution for the healthcare environment.

The SAFsolution product family enables the replacement of Windows(R) passwords and smart card PINs with biometric authentication -- a more secure and convenient alternative to password access. Compatible with over 25 hardware authentication devices, SAFsolution is tightly integrated with Microsoft(R) Active Directory(R), simplifying system configuration and user management.

"The business market continues to demonstrate tremendous interest in obtaining the same level of strong authentication and security currently in use within the federal government," noted Tim Wudi, Chief Marketing Officer for SAFLINK. "SAFsolution offers consultants such as Denali an opportunity to deliver their customers a combination of stronger security and reduced administration costs. It's a winning proposition, as evidenced by the strong interest and early enrollment of multiple resellers in the SAFLINK Partner Program."
