"Using Biometrics in Everyday Consumer Applications -- Considerations and Expectations"

WALL, NJ--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2012) - BIO-key International, Inc. (OTCBB: BKYI), a global leader in fingerprint biometric identification solutions and advanced mobile identification technology, today reported that Jim Sullivan, Vice President of Strategy and Business Development at BIO-key, will be moderating a panel discussion featuring two BIO-key customers who are innovating using BIO-key fingerprint biometrics. The panel is titled "Using Biometrics in Everyday Consumer Applications - Considerations and Expectations," at the annual Summer Biometric Summit on Tuesday July 31st at 1:30pm and held at the AMA Center in New York City. Mr. Sullivan, a graduate of Brown University and biometric security expert, has over 15 years of experience in the biometric and enterprise security industry and is a frequent invited speaker at the Biometric Summit, and several national industry meetings.

"BIO-key has played an instrumental role in introducing biometric technology to the consumer," stated Jim Sullivan. "Years ago we committed to developing a unique software-centric, web-enabled operation model. While most biometric companies focus on developing stovepipe hardware and software point solutions, BIO-key focused on providing the value of biometric identity management services that the overall enterprise can leverage and tap into. We recognized that the path to biometric technology gaining universal acceptance would be through a superior user experience, hardware interoperability enabling different devices to work seamlessly. BIO-key has created the world's first biometric authentication and identification service for corporate users to deploy in-house."

Guests on this year's panel include Carl Ceresoli, Director of Strategy and Innovation at AT&T, and Eric Schulties, CIO at the Institute for Transfusion Medicine and winner of the Pittsburgh CIO of the Year 2012 award in Pittsburg, PA. This interactive panel of IT leaders will discuss their experiences introducing fingerprint biometrics into traditionally ID card-based identity processes, the benefits of doing so, and the lessons learned along the way. These real world Healthcare, Retail, and Consumer identity scenarios will provide you with a strong cross section of what to consider, and what to expect, when introducing this breakthrough technology into the mainstream of your business processes.
