BioPassword Launches Systems Integrator Program to Support Developers Needing Web-Based Strong Authentication

Strong Authentication Provider Supports Rapid Growth of Online Applications With Easy-to-Use Security Software

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - September 5, 2007) - BioPassword, Inc., the leader in software-only strong authentication, today announced the launch of the BioPassword® Systems Integrator Partner Program, a technology integration program designed to meet the demands of integrators of Internet-based applications for the quick implementation of advanced strong authentication. The Systems Integrator Partner Program will offer BioPassword partners the ability to add the most cost-effective, easy-to-use Web-based strong authentication to Web portals or other customized Web applications being developed for their clients.

A February 2007 study by a risk management firm found that more than 75 percent of attacks from hackers occurred at the Web application level(1). These risks, combined with the requirement of strong authentication policies to comply with regulations -- such as PCI Data Security Standard, FFIEC, GLBA and HIPAA -- make it essential for systems integrators to offer strong authentication solutions to their customers. While most authentication solutions require time-consuming custom hardware and software integration, BioPassword offers a software-only multi-factor solution that can be implemented quickly and is scalable to millions of users.

The Systems Integrator Partner Program will provide members with a software development kit, including a lightweight .NET Web service, Flash-based client control and a sample reference application. The program also offers a highly discounted introductory price of $5,000, and 30 hours of remote support. As a result, partners can utilize a powerful authentication platform for enabling identity verification and controlling internal and external access across a broad landscape of Web applications.

Systems Integrator Partner Program is designed to support implementation of BioPassword's Web-based authentication solution, BioPassword® Internet Edition. Internet Edition is a multi-factor keystroke biometric solution that identifies users by analyzing a combination of standard logon credentials (user name and password) and keystroke biometrics (unique typing rhythm).

"When building Web-based applications for our customers, BioPassword's Internet Edition is a natural choice for an additional factor of authentication," said Neil Issa, CEO of Catalyst Technology Group. "Systems integrators and technology providers depend on each other to create the best and most cost-effective solutions for their customers. BioPassword helps us quickly deliver on that promise."

"BioPassword is committed to providing systems integrators with all of the tools that they need to be successful in developing comprehensive security solutions for Web-based applications," said Mark Upson, CEO of BioPassword. "The creation of the Systems Integrator Partner Program signals the increasing range and depth of our Internet Edition authentication solution."
