SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 12, 2014) - ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) (IWS), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, has received the CTIA-The Wireless Association® Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Award for its GoMobile Interactive™ (GMI) product, taking first place in the Mobile Money, Payments, Banking & Commerce category.
