A New Security Card the Size and Thickness of a Credit Card That Uses Biometrics for Safeguarding Buildings, Networks and Identity by SmartMetric

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 27, 2016) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) -- SmartMetric, the creator of the biometric credit card that has a built inside the card, powerful fingerprint scanner, is using the same biometric card based technology to bring enhanced portable biometric technology to the security and identity market.

Having spent years of research and development, SmartMetric is now using its world class leadership in miniaturized biometric technology to solve not only security issues for the banking and credit card industry but as well the physical, network log on and individual identity verification markets.

The SmartMetric biometric security card has FIPS approved chip and software that is activated following the card user being validated using the cards inbuilt powerful miniature fingerprint scanner. The card holder simply passes their finger over a sensor on the cards surface that in turn scans, matches and then activates the cards smartcard chip in less than 0.25 seconds. The card is then able to be used to act as a secure biometric key for computer log on to networks. The card also has inside, radio frequency capability allowing the same card to be used for biometric validated doorway access. Along with these capabilities, the card also has a visual indicator that flashes upon a successful fingerprint match thereby allowing the card to be used as a biometric identity card.

From biometric secured computer access, physical building access and anywhere anytime identity validation, the SmartMetric multi-function security card is a quantum leap forward in bringing the power of portable biometrics to protect Business and Government alike.

SmartMetic's biometric card uses a Cortex processor along with advanced SmartMetric developed electronics including an internal power management system and as well a fully rechargeable battery. This allows the card to operate using a persons fingerprint that is stored inside the card rather than on a central server. This of itself increases security while also allowing the SmartMetric biometric card to be used just as easily at the desktop for computer access as well as doorway access and on the spot anytime anywhere identity validation.

Being FIPS approved allows us to immediately offer our advanced biometric security card to United States Government Departments and Agencies as well as bringing the highest level of security for use by Business around the world, said today SmartMetric's President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick. We are excited by the new national and international markets this new security card affords us while we move forward in tandem to bring our biometric credit card to markets around the world, said Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric officially launched its groundbreaking biometric payments card this April at the Smart Card Alliance Payments Forum in Orlando Florida. Since then the company has been working with Banks around the world who have shown strong interest in issuing this card as new card product for their own credit cardi fraud defenses as well as protecting the security of their customers.
