BIO-key adds another national police organization to client roster
BIO-key announced today that a South American National Police Force has purchased and is deploying BIO-key’s enterprise multi-factor biometric authentication solution for Windows Active Directory network log-in. The police department will use BIO-key’s ID Director for Windows to secure network sign in for the organization’s Windows devices using hundreds of BIO-key’s EcoID finger scanners.
“We are proud that another respected and innovative national police organization has selected BIO-key’s biometric solutions to secure access to their critical networks and data,” says Mike DePasquale, BIO-key chairman and CEO. “World-class organizations across all verticals are increasingly incorporating enhanced authentication measures in order to protect high value data and meet compliance guidelines.”
“Our biometric security solutions stand out by delivering strong security without the headaches of per-user tokens and passwords, delivering an unmatched user experience with minimal impact on workflows,” adds DePasquale. “We view this contract as further confirmation of the strength of our technology and proven solutions as well as the growing urgency for organizations of all types to take action to secure their networks and devices.”
This summer BIO-key raised $2.55 million in a private placement of a Senior Secured Convertible Note to repay outstanding debts and use for general working capital purposes. The company’s second quarter revenue was down 2.7 percent from the same period a year earlier.
