IDO Security Completes Initial Order and Install of the MagShoe™ 3G/HS in Geneva Central Prison in Switzerland

MagShoe to Be Exhibited at American Correctional Association Winter Conference in Phoenix, Arizona

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 20, 2012) - IDO Security, Inc. (OTCBB: IDOI), developer of the innovative MagShoe™ shoe scanning device (SSD), today announced that following a successful trial period which concluded last December, of the MagShoe™ 3G/HS in the Geneva Central Prison in Geneva Switzerland, the Swiss Prison Authorities have purchased and installed the first operational units of the MagShoe in Geneva Central Prison.

The Company is working with its local Swiss distributor, Max C. Meister AG, to build on its momentum expecting to install additional MagShoes in other Swiss correctional facilities over the course of 2012. This Swiss installation further increases the MagShoe market presence in European correctional facilities which includes units in operation in Italy, Andorra, and Ireland.

Authorities in the Swiss prison service took great interest in the MagShoe to resolve an acute problem in the prison facilities between prison wardens and legal counsels who were visiting their incarcerated clients. Security concerns of smuggled weapons required inspection of footwear; however lawyers took offense at having to remove their shoes prior to prison visits.

"During the trial period, prison wardens found that the MagShoe™ 3G/HS offered an ideal solution to this daily conflict by ensuring maximum security standards and providing high detection of metallic threats, without forcing lawyers to take off their shoes," stated Christoph Meister from Max C. Meister AG. "We believe this successful installation is a stepping stone for additional units being ordered throughout Switzerland for correctional facilities as well as other markets in need of homeland security or loss prevention."

In addition, the Company is launching a marketing campaign focused on U.S. Correctional Facilities by hosting a booth at the American Correctional Association, ACA Winter Conference, in Phoenix Arizona, January 20-25. ACA is the oldest and largest international correctional association in the world. The Winter Conference is one of two annual events hosted by the ACA that are international conventions, attracting thousands of corrections officials from the county, state and federal levels, as well as from probation, parole and community corrections agencies. The MagShoe will be exhibited at Booth #546

"We are excited with the continued expansion in the correctional facilities market and the fact that the MagShoe is operational in numerous prison facilities in Europe will enable us to market the MagShoe more effectively at the ACA Winter Conference. With over 100,000 prisons in the U.S., we are thrilled about the opportunities this market presents as well as other markets in the U.S.," stated Avishai Rotshtain, Product Manager for IDO Security.
