BIO-key International, Inc., a leader in finger-based biometric identification solutions will be showcasing its fingerprint biometric solutions at the IBM Pulse 2010 Conference being held at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas on February 21-24, 2010.

More than 5,000 attendees from over 65 countries are expected to attend Pulse 2010 including more than 800 IBM Business Partners. Pulse 2010 offers extreme business value with solutions for managing transportation systems, facilities, production equipment, telecommunications infrastructure, or IT hardware and software. At the event BIO-key will be demonstrating the integration of BIO-key's fingerprint ID solution to IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business applications and its fingerprint ID solution that has been incorporated in the standard release of IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On which was announced earlier this month.

With these complementary identity solutions, organizations can offer a superior fingerprint identification alternative to passwords and tokens to establish the identity of users for online business and enterprise applications. This convenient alternative to passwords and tokens can reduce costs, strengthen security, improve the end user experience and address IT security and compliance requirements.

"For users of IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business and Enterprise Single Sign-On applications, BIO-key's biometric identity solution provides a convenient and secure way to establish their identity," added Mike DePasquale, President & CEO of BIO-key International. "Not only does this solution eliminate the need for them to remember passwords, but it addresses their concerns about identity theft. The most recent 2009 Unisys Security Index report found that nearly two-thirds of U.S. citizens are concerned about identity theft and the majority of Americas would be willing to provide biometric data to protect that identity. Of that majority, 93% reported that they would be willing to use fingerprint biometrics to establish their identity."

BIO-key's fingerprint biometric identity solution is tightly integrated, easy to deploy, and simple to activate with minimal or no changes to the existing IT infrastructure. Activation of this biometric identification feature and integration services are available through the IBM Global Services Group, IBM Tivoli resellers, or directly from BIO-key.
