Privaris® Receives BiometriTech™ Magazine’s “Product of the Year” Award for 2005
The BPID™ Biometric Security Device Honored for Outstanding Innovation
Charlottesville , Virginia , June 12, 2006 — Privaris, Inc. announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC®)’s BiometriTech magazine (www.biometritech.com) has named the BPID™ Security Device as a recipient of a 2005 Product of the Year Award.
“Each year BiometriTech magazine bestows its Product of the Year awards on companies that have demonstrated excellence in technological advancement and application refinements in the biometrics industry. Privaris has demonstrated to the editors of BiometriTech that it has gone the extra mile to create a truly innovative product,” said Rich Tehrani, President and Group Publisher of BiometriTech.
Privaris’ BPID Security Device revolutionizes
existing “contactless” physical and computer (logical) security. The wireless,
mobile device offers the heightened security of biometrics without the high
implementation costs and privacy concerns associated with most biometric
solutions. One single device
provides on-board processing of biometric information to ensure privacy, and enables increased security for multiple physical and logical access applications that previously required disparate, embedded systems.
The BPID device’s compatibility with existing security technology from HID®, SARGENT®, Indala and Kantech® means that installation is simple and economical, requir ing no changes to existing security systems. This results in a significant cost and time advantage over typical biometric security systems, and enables the device to co-exist with prox card deployments on the same physical access card reader systems.
The BPID device is issued through an enrollment process that retains all fingerprint information on the device and not in a “centralized” biometric database. This “distributed” biometric architecture protects users’ personal privacy and also benefits the enterprise by eliminating the maintenance costs, and particularly the risk and liability, associated with housing a biometric database.
“The BPID device is changing the way that people think about biometrics,” said Barry Johnson, President and CEO of Privaris. “Adding the increased security of biometrics doesn’t have to require an expensive overhaul of your existing system, or sacrifice user’s personal privacy. We see the tremendous impact that our device is having on the corporate security world, but it’s especially gratifying to be recognized by BiometriTech for Privaris’ contribution to the industry. We are thrilled to receive an acknowledgement as significant as the Product of the Year.”
