BIO-key reports significant follow-on order from foreign defense ministry


BIO-key reports a significant follow-on order from a leading foreign defense ministry for a major expansion of their BIO-key deployment which was initially reported in January of 2018.

According to the announcement, the ministry’s technology team, referred to BIO-key by Microsoft’s Windows Core Security and Identity Team, integrated BIO-key’s core biometric software engine WEB-key with Microsoft Windows Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS), for biometric single sign-on access control to shared files, Microsoft Office applications and Outlook. Following the successful initial deployment and operation, the ministry added more BIO-key software licenses and fingerprint scanning hardware for utilization across additional users and workstations.

“This particular customer is globally recognized for its cutting-edge cyber-security expertise and is renowned for their innovative use of advanced technologies,” explains Jim Sullivan, BIO-key Senior VP, Strategy and Compliance. “Defense Ministries are constant targets of cyber-attacks, and we are glad to help them step up authentication to the highest assurance with NIST-verified accuracy and FIPS compliance.”

Last month BIO-key revealed its biometric software revenues are being affected by U.S.-China trade relations.
