Solution Receives Five Stars and Magazine’s ‘Best Buy’ Award for Seamless Integration and Ease of Deployment

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 9 /PRNewswire/ — DigitalPersona, Inc., a leader in fingerprint identity and authentication solutions, today announced that the company’s enterprise solution, DigitalPersona Pro, has received top honors from SC Magazine in the publication’s annual Biometrics Group Test for the third consecutive year. Recognizing the product’s continued leadership with a score of 5 out of 5, the magazine states “rich with options and straightforward to manage, this is our recommended product this month” and calls DigitalPersona Pro “a great value for the money.”

Touting the solution’s seamless integration into existing network infrastructure, the June 2009 issue states, “the server software modifies the Active Directory schema to create a seamless implementation through the use of Group Policy Objects. This integration makes for easy deployment and administration of the system and also allows any domain user who is enrolled to logon to any workstation using their fingerprint.”

DigitalPersona Pro is an enterprise fingerprint identity security solution that enables deployment of strong passwords, multi-factor authentication and transaction accountability. It promotes stronger security practices, simplifying compliance with government regulations such as the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act, Sarbanes-Oxley and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. Additionally, DigitalPersona Pro can dramatically reduce the spiraling IT helpdesk costs associated with password resets and deters fraudulent sharing or theft of computer accounts.

“Today’s down economy is squeezing IT budgets at the same time it’s putting more pressure than ever before on businesses to protect corporate and customer data,” said Jim Fulton, vice president of marketing at DigitalPersona. “SC Magazine’s Biometrics Group Test closely looks at how centrally-managed biometrics are providing a cost-effective way to address growing business threats.
