Defense ID Selected as Finalist for 2007 Best New Product of the Year

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - November 5, 2007) - Access Control & Security Systems Magazine has announced that Mobilisa's Defense ID is a finalist for the 2007 Best New Product of the Year contest.

Defense ID is an advanced ID card scanning system that uses a mobile, handheld computer to conduct a quick background check of a visitor or vendor.

Access Control & Security Systems Magazine's 2007 Best New Product of the Year award honors excellence in best new product development among hundreds of new products across the security industry. The award showcases Mobilisa as one of the most innovative products of the current year and recognizes the talent and commitment of the people involved in every aspect of development, from concept through sales.

"Defense ID is a security product that really makes a difference in combating terrorism," said Steve Williams, Senior Vice President of Mobilisa. "We're extremely proud that Access Control and Security Systems Magazine has recognized the achievement of our Defense ID team."

Defense ID is a handheld scanner that quickly and accurately checks an ID card presented at any point of entry. The information that is scanned is compared to 100+ databases of individuals who are wanted for criminal offenses or are barred from military installations. The system works with military IDs, U.S. and Canadian driver's licenses and other government ID cards and therefore requires no need to issue or create special badges -- a major cost savings.

Mobilisa's system is credited in helping security personnel identify and prevent nearly 25,000 unauthorized individuals from gaining entry onto federal installations. It is in use at over 50 federal locations and was recently selected by Fort Dix, NJ base personnel to improve security after the FBI uncovered a terrorist plot to attack soldiers and families on the base.
