New Fingerprint-Based Authentication Solution for the Enterprise Makes Digital Signature and Encryption Technology Easy to Use and Deploy

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 28 -- DigitalPersona, Inc., a leader in fingerprint identity solutions, today announced the availability of DigitalPersona Privacy Manager Pro 2.0, the newest addition to the DigitalPersona Pro suite of security applications for the enterprise. Privacy Manager Pro is a centrally-managed fingerprint-based authentication solution that offers secure and convenient communication to business professionals, allowing them to digitally sign and encrypt Microsoft Outlook 2007/2003 email and Microsoft Office 2007 documents with the touch of a finger. The software enables organizations to save money by streamlining workflow processes and makes it easier to address increasingly-stringent regulatory compliance and corporate loss prevention mandates, particularly in the financial, legal and healthcare industries.

With Privacy Manager Pro, users can quickly and easily keep sensitive documents and communications private, secure and unaltered wherever they are transmitted or stored. With support for fingerprint-based authentication, Privacy Manager Pro enables businesses to strongly link documents and communications to specific people without sacrificing productivity or ease of use.

"When it comes to managing sensitive information risks, organizations should not ignore that an employee's e-mail is often the primary source of information leakage," said Scott Crawford, Managing Research Director, Security and Risk Management at Enterprise Management Associates. "Privacy Manager Pro helps organizations address these risks by giving users the ability to digitally sign and encrypt Microsoft Outlook email and Office documents with their fingerprint, linking greater control over sensitive information with strong proof of identity."

Privacy Manager Pro makes strong security convenient through the use of digital certificates that it exchanges and manages in an intuitive way for the user. Organizations can either use their existing digital certificates, or have the software obtain new ones over the Internet from Comodo, a provider of identity and trust assurance services, simply and without further burdening IT staff. Secure messages and documents can then be exchanged with users inside the enterprise or with people in other organizations, including users of HP business notebooks and desktop computers that come with Privacy Manager software already preloaded.

"Today's businesses continue to face growing challenges from regulatory compliance and corporate data loss prevention mandates. At the same time, they also need to boost productivity and efficiency," said Jim Fulton, vice president of marketing at DigitalPersona. "Fingerprint-based security provides a secure, natural way to instantly link an individual person to their digital identity, simplifying compliance efforts and streamlining operations. Privacy Manager Pro allows users to safeguard and authenticate documents or messages more robustly and more easily than they ever could before, ensuring that security and collaboration concerns are met in tandem."

Pricing and Availability

Privacy Manager Pro runs on Microsoft Windows XP and Vista. It is available to enterprise organizations of all sizes for a suggested list price of $24.95 per seat from DigitalPersona and its world-wide network of solution partners. Organizations can use their existing digital certificates or purchase digital certificates from Comodo. For a free evaluation of Privacy Manager Pro and DigitalPersona Pro, please visit
