Info Security Products Guide Names BioPassword Winner of the 2006 Tomorrow's Technology Today Award

BioPassword Enterprise Edition Recognized as an Advanced Biometric Technology for Authentication

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 24, 2006 -- BioPassword, Inc., the only software company providing secure authentication and anti-fraud solutions based on the behavioral biometric of keystroke dynamics, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, a Silicon Valley Communications publication and the world's leading publication on security-related products and technologies, has named BioPassword Enterprise Edition a winner of the 2006 Tomorrow's Technology Today Award.

This prestigious award recognizes security vendors with advanced, groundbreaking network security solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of information security. BioPassword Enterprise Edition was selected by the editors of Info Security Products Guide based on technologies that are making the most positive impact on security in today's highly sophisticated and blended attacks environment.

With the United States Federal Trade Commission reporting last year that more than 2.5 million Americans lost identifying credentials, such as userIDs and passwords, two-factor authentication has become a security requirement. BioPassword's multifactor authentication solution based on the behavioral biometrics of keystroke dynamics (the user's unique typing rhythm) protects corporate and individual assets with a simple, yet powerful solution. BioPassword Enterprise Edition provides an extremely cost-effective solution for IT managers by integrating with Windows Active Directory and supporting Citrix applications. As a result, organizations can solve the challenges of authenticating internal and remote users in a single secure system. In addition, BioPassword helps compliance with industry and regulatory mandates, such as FFIEC in banking and HIPAA and CFR 21 Part 11 in healthcare.
