ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - December 5, 2007) - Sequiam Corporation (OTCBB: SQUM), a leading provider of innovative consumer and commercial identity-management technologies and services, announced today that production is underway on several versions of the new biometric hardware kits for Fujitsu. These kits will be used in multiple applications, including Novell® eDirectory™, enabling NMAS Authentication for client and server login. They will also be used for secure access to, the world's first secure social networking site for children, which utilizes Novell eDirectory.

Sequiam will produce the USB fingerprint authentication login devices, which employ the Fujitsu fingerprint sensor ICs such as the MBF320 Sweep Sensor® and MBF200 single touch sensor. Sequiam will also be producing the packaging for both Novell eDirectory login kits and Anne's Diary kits. The first 10,000-unit order is projected to ship by the end of 2007.

"We look forward to working with their talented engineering and production staff on new and innovative biometric solutions."

The technology is supported on Novell eDirectory running Windows, Linux and NetWare. The reader, produced by Sequiam, will come in two versions, a single-touch sensor and sweep sensor technology.

Nick VandenBrekel, Chief Executive Officer of Sequiam Corporation, said: "This innovative product is just one of the many synergies between Fujitsu and Sequiam. We look forward to a long relationship with Fujitsu and will continue to bring convenient identity-management solutions to the consumer."
