BioConnect Partners With Multi-Health Systems Inc. to Provide Reliable and Secure Interactions for Its Customer Network

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 23, 2016) - Identity management and biometric technology company -- BioConnect, announces today their partnership with Multi-Health Systems Inc. (MHS), an international leading technology company focused on scientifically validated assessments.

As an innovative leader in scientifically validated assessments for more than 30 years, MHS has developed products such as the Conners™ suite of ADHD assessments, the Level of Service™ suite of assessments and the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0®). Responsible for storing and securing sensitive personal health information (PHI), this partnership with BioConnect enables MHS to continue to adhere to the highest standards of privacy obligated by HIPPA compliance demands all while having full transparency and auditability.

BioConnect will be providing MHS an integrated authentication platform, using mobile biometric technology, to ensure MHS' critical applications, IT infrastructure and physical access control are more secure. MHS's unique intellectual property and storage of data requires a high degree of security. Partnering with BioConnect assures security and privacy of who has access to critical information. This partnership is an opportunity for both companies to experience continued growth and scaling.

"We are extremely excited to partner with a global and Canadian leader in the scientific assessment industry. Both BioConnect and MHS are dedicated to strong product growth, optimal user experience, and demonstrate a commitment to innovation and quality," says Rob Douglas, Founder and CEO of BioConnect. "Together, BioConnect and MHS are digitally and globally driven and BioConnect is enabling MHS to provide reliable and secure interactions for its customer network."

"As innovative leaders and data amalgamators we understand privacy is an important concern especially with the ever evolving technology landscape, says Hazel Wheldon, President of MHS. "This partnership with BioConnect puts MHS at the forefront of privacy solutions for ourselves and our clients. This will not only improve identity management but will transform MHS's scientific assessment landscape."

BioConnect's Identity Platform will consolidate all client and employee identities into one platform that is both device and system agnostic. MHS will utilize biometric authentication on mobile devices via the BioConnect Identity Platform for logical access to critical IT infrastructure, effectively replacing the need for passwords and PINs. The solution is being deployed not only for access to applications but for an enhanced level of security and auditability for IT administration -- a common requirement in any enterprise. The same level of security will also be extended to physical access control (door access) within MHS buildings. BioConnect's solution will maintain a high level of accuracy of identity that will enable MHS to stay competitive and differentiate themselves in their industry, all while providing continued security assurance and innovation to all MHS clients.

BioConnect is laser focused on enabling rightful identity and a partnership with MHS strongly aligns with both companies' goals. BioConnect's technology leaves no room for suspect identity or limitations to assurances in security. With offices in North America and partners around the world, rightful identity for MHS will now transcend countries and MHS will be able to truly provide a frictionless and secure authentication method for themselves, their partners and their clients.
