IDO Security Announces Successful Completion of 2nd Round Testing for New MagShoe™ Model

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - January 4, 2010) - IDO Security, Inc. (OTCBB: IDOI) (, developer of the innovative MagShoe™ "shoes-on" weapons metal detection system, announced today that the new, upgraded MagShoe™ models have successfully completed the second round of testing.

The new upgraded models, scheduled to be launched in March 2010, have successfully completed the second round of tests that included field tests in a live environment. The field tests were conducted in Tel Aviv, Israel and Vienna, Austria and were completed successfully.

IDO Security CEO, Michael Goldberg, stated, "The recent bombing attempt on flight 253 to Detroit demonstrated the urgency in introducing the new models to the market. We have seen once again that Terrorists are focusing on the lower part of the body to conceal weapons and explosive devices and that in most cases some form of metal is present as a part of the explosive device, in this case a syringe which contained metal."

Mr. Goldberg further stated, "The new MagShoe models, with their multi-zone detection capabilities, have a much higher detection area to enable it to detect exactly in these 'problematic areas,' where detection is more difficult. We expect to have the first deployments of the new MagShoe models during the second half of 2010."
