Defense contractor selects BIO-key biometrics technology
A government defense contractor is securing employee access to its online infrastructure using the BIO-key SideSwipe fingerprint reader solution.
SideSwipe offers native support for Windows Biometric Framework, which streamlines the implementation of biometric authentication into an enterprise network.
The initial purchase order is valued at approximately $75K and will enable compliance with regulatory requirements for multi-factor authentication and, as the solution is deployed, will lead to additional opportunities .
The unnamed contractor provides highly sensitive solutions to government and commercial customers in space, aviation, cyber, electronics, telemedicine, navigation and systems integration applications. BIO-key worked with the client’s integration team to connect with and support their existing authentication system.
“This project confirms the security, workflow and return on investment benefits of our solutions in enabling customers to meet rigorous governmental requirements for strong multi-factor authentication,” commented Mike DePasquale, BIO-key chairman & CEO. “Defense contractors must be at the cutting edge of highly secure and cost effective solutions to protect their sensitive infrastructure from security threats, and we are pleased to have been selected as their preferred biometric security provider.”
Just last month, BIO-key’s SideTouch fingerprint readers for Windows were featured on the Home Shopping Network.
