/ Source: GlobeNewswire

WALL, N.J., Sept. 17, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BIO-key International, Inc. (OTCBB:BKYI), a leader in finger-based biometric identification solutions, today announced that the company is showcasing its fingerprint biometric solutions, including the recently announced Enterprise Identification Platform for Mobile Devices and Smartphones at two events next week. BIO-key is exhibiting in booth #2225 at the 2010 Oracle OpenWorld Conference being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA from September 19-23. Additionally, BIO-key is exhibiting in booth #224 at the 2010 Biometric Consortium Conference being held at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa FL from September 21-23.

At these events, demonstrations of BIO-key's biometric identification technology, running on the LG eXpo Smartphone, Apple iPad and Apple iPhone will provide visitors with the ability to experience how remote users can securely, quickly and conveniently establish their identity with BIO-key biometric ID solutions. Additionally, at Oracle OpenWorld, BIO-key will be showcasing its ID Director for Oracle Access Manager identity solutions.

BIO-key's Biometric Identification Platform can be quickly and easily added to deliver strong, biometric identification to establish user identities when they log into enterprise servers from their desktop computer, their laptop at home, and now even remotely- from mobile devices including Smartphones! Users simply swipe a finger to establish their identity with this more secure and convenient alternative to passwords and tokens (which are easily forgotten, shared or compromised).  

BIO-key is a charter Member of the Oracle Identity Assurance Partner Alliance. With ID Director for Oracle Access Manager, any new or existing application running on an Oracle Identity Management platform requires only the touch of a finger to establish a person's identity.  This valuable addition to Oracle's Identity Management Suite leverages the superior security and convenience of biometrics while eliminating the costs and headaches associated with replacing tokens or resetting passwords. It can be easily added to the front end of an Oracle Enterprise Single Sign On (ESSO) system to establish the identity of personnel.  Oracle's partners and customers alike can easily implement BIO-key's biometric identification to secure applications protected by Oracle Identity Management Platforms including user access to Single Sign On (SSO), as well as web and application identity management provisioning applications.

"BIO-key continues to innovate and deliver superior identity solutions. Our enterprise ready biometric ID platform is the perfect solution for application providers and enterprise IT professionals struggling with how to quickly, conveniently and accurately establish the identity of remote users," commented Mike DePasquale, CEO of BIO-key International. "Our fingerprint biometric identity solutions are secure, convenient and cost effective alternatives that provide organizations with a real competitive advantage that benefits both the end-user and the IT staff responsible for deploying and supporting ID solutions."
