IDO Security Receives Additional Purchase Order for MagShoe™ Units in China

Company Releases 3rd Quarter 2011 Financial Results

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - Nov 22, 2011) - IDO Security Inc. (OTCBB: IDOI), developer of the innovative MagShoe™ shoe scanning device (SSD), today announced that the Company received another purchase order for additional units of the MagShoe™ 3G Series in China. This purchase order comes after fulfilling a recent purchase order from its partner in China, Beijing Hwan Technology & Trade Co.

IDO and Beijing Hwan Technology & Trade Co. have installed MagShoe units in more than 20 airports throughout China, with the Yinchuan International Airport in Ningxia province being the last airport to install the MagShoe™ 3G units. China is one of the largest markets utilizing the MagShoe today.

"We are extremely excited to see a continued demand for our MagShoe™ units in China. It is clear that the safety of its travelers throughout the many airports in China has become a priority as the China Civil Aviation authority recently raised its security standards to Level 2 at major airports. The MagShoe™ provides the added security measures that are being implemented at checkpoints with added convenience for the travelers as the units 'shoes-on' design provides not only accurate screening from the mid-calf down, it also reduces the wait time," stated Avishai Rotshtain, Product Manager for IDO Security.

In addition, the Company reported third quarter 2011 financial results for the nine and three months ended September 30, 2011. Revenues for the nine and three months were $189,223 and $169,737, respectively, compared to $22,770 and $15,035 for the corresponding periods in 2010. The increase in revenues for the nine and three months ended September 30, 2011 as compared to the 2010 periods is primarily attributable to the substantial increase in the number of new MagShoe™ devices delivered to customers in Africa, Europe and the Far East. The Company reported a net loss for the nine and three months ended September 30, 2011 of $5,510,634 and $1,472,157, respectively, compared to a net loss of $5,640,232 and $1,713,901 for the corresponding periods in 2010.

Michael Goldberg, President of IDO Security, said, "While the revenues may not appear significant, we believe the Company is at a turning point as we anticipate a ramp up of sales in the coming months ahead. Over the last 2 years, we have dramatically improved the MagShoe design, performance, and cost of production and through various tradeshows overseas, we have collaborated with agencies to market the MagShoe in many countries around the world. We are beginning to see results from these efforts and we will continue to join forces with additional agencies as we believe that the market for the MagShoe will continue to be positively impacted by the constant threat of terrorist activities and by new government regulations and appropriations for security and inspection products and procedures globally."

A more detailed description of our business, results of operations and financial statements are contained in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 21, 2011.
