BIO-key International to Showcase Fingerprint Identification Technology at 2007 RSA Conference


Sixteen Other Exhibitors Will Be Promoting Bio-Key at This Event

WALL, N.J., Feb. 5 / -- BIO-key International Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: BKYI) , a leader in finger-based biometric identification and wireless public safety solutions, announced today that the company is showcasing its fingerprint biometric products at the 2007 RSA Conference. This prestigious information security event is being held at the Moscone Conference Center on Feb 5th - 8th in San Francisco, CA. BIO-key® will demonstrate its state-of-the-art identification solutions, based on its patented, award winning biometric technology in booth 2343.

BIO-key is partnering with Oracle in a promotional program at the conference and BIO-key's technology will also be shown in partner booths where the it has been integrated into a variety of solutions including IdentiPHI (booth# 648), Living Software (booth # 2347) and Softex (booth # 2109).

BIO-key and its partners will be demonstrating how BIO-key solutions are deployed "from doorway to desktop" to enhance security and drive revenue. The solutions that have been successfully deployed with the BIO-key authentication software that will be shown include a physical access solution (with partner NextGenID), network log on and Single Sign On (SSO) applications (with partners IdentiPHI and Softex), secure email applications (with partner Living Software) and a large scale identification application developed by BIO-key. Each of these solutions leverages BIO-key's reader independence capability that allows the user to select the appropriate fingerprint reader from any of the major reader manufacturers.

BIO-key will feature WEB-key® 3.0, a cost effective, easy to deploy, fingerprint based strong authentication system. This unique solution allows authorized users to positively identify themselves to gain access into any application with the simple scan of their finger. When used in conjunction with a token, BIO-key's fingerprint authentication replaces less secure usernames, passwords or PINs. This capability is a significant improvement in both convenience and security and provides companies with a cost effective solution to thwart phishing attacks and comply with regulations such as FIPS 201 credentialing, FFIEC compliance, HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley, Visa PCI, and the Electronic Signatures Act.

"The convenience BIO-key's technology provides the user coupled with the increased security and lower cost it offers the enterprise make it the clear choice to deploy," stated Mike DePasquale, CEO and President of BIO-key. "With the launch of our True User ID Rapid Deployment Kit, we have removed the hurdles associated with deploying fingerprint biometrics into any application. BIO-key continues to set the standard in providing scalable, cost effective, and easy to implement user identification solutions."
