Lund, Sweden/Washington, DC (July 9, 2009) /PRNewswire/ — Precise Biometrics has been awarded an order worth more than 6 million US dollar to supply fingerprint readers and software to the US Government, as a step in continued deployment of Precise Match-on-Card™ in multiple agencies. Delivery will start immediately and the order will be delivered and invoiced before end of 2009.
The solution delivered by Precise Biometrics is related to US Government security and cyber defense programs to prevent hostile infiltration of government systems within critical infrastructure.
Thomas Marschall, CEO at Precise Biometrics, comments on the order:
– With an order of this magnitude, we are reaching an important milestone in the industry. We are confident that our track record of successfully combining cost-efficient and advanced biometric technology with a positive user-experience is now leading to significant volume orders such as this one. Government customers are demanding higher security and we are most honored to once more be a trusted supplier. This solution addresses important areas such as cyber defense, in addition it generates significant cost-savings. Therefore, I see great opportunities for extension into further similar programs.
System breaches from attackers are prevented by requiring localized and user-dependent security, which is introduced by biometric Match-on-Card authentication. Precise Match-on-Card™ provides strong authentication and proof of identity, which secures networks and computers by linking a user to an access protocol.
Precise Biometrics has more than 20 million deployed card licenses and close to 100 million contracted licenses for its Match-on-Card technology today. The company has for several years successfully supplied its products to US customers such as the Department of State, NASA and FAA (Federal Aviation Administration).
