SAN ANTONIO, TX, 11/09/05 / MARKET WIRE/ -- FaceKey Corporation, (OTC: FEKY), a biometrics technology provider specializing in security, access control and time and attendance products, announced the issuance of a new patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, titled "FINGERPRINT VERIFICATION SYSTEM UTILIZING A FACIAL IMAGE-BASED HEURISTIC SEARCH METHOD." The patented system utilizes the best features of face recognition technology and fingerprint recognition technology, which makes it possible to use biometrics only based products to serve large groups and companies with a large number of employees.
Yevgeny Levitov, PhD, President of FaceKey Corporation, commented, "The combination of face and fingerprint recognition allows for the most effective use of biometrics and provides the most accurate method of positive identification available today. With the issuance of this patent, FaceKey has the ability to target large corporations that will benefit by maintaining the most secure access control and time and attendance tracking of their employees. This patent adds to our existing IP portfolio and will aid the Company in becoming one of the premier providers of biometric products."
By combining the two technologies, face and fingerprint recognition, FaceKey will provide large companies with Access Control and Time and Attendance systems that are based solely on biometric technologies. Currently, biometric Access Control systems or Time and Attendance systems cannot serve large groups of persons with biometrics only and manufacturers have added the traditional methods of identification such as keypads, proximity or slide cards or smart cards. The combination of face and fingerprint recognition to identify individuals eliminates the need for the additional identifiers such as keypads, proximity or slide cards or smart cards, due to the accuracy achieved when combining these biometric technologies.
FaceKey Corp. is a biometrics technology provider whose mission is to provide supreme security measures for their customers by utilizing proprietary biometric technologies that identify and allow access to authorized personnel. FaceKey's technology combines face and fingerprint recognition providing the highest level of security available, reducing fraud and providing better accountability. By combining these identification technologies, FaceKey's products are used for a wide variety of applications ranging from securing corporations' confidential areas to effectively monitoring time and attendance of employees.
