IRVINE, CA, June 6, 2011 — CardLogix, a smart card manufacturer, and Datastrip, a leader in handheld biometric terminals, have announced that they have formed a partnership. The companies are teaming to deliver handheld, mobile fingerprint identity verification for applications such as National ID, Voting, Law Enforcement, and Airport Security. The combination of smart cards and biometrics identifies people with completely unique and irrefutable data that cannot be altered or duplicated.

The focus of this partnership is to address the growing need for frontline security and Identity Management throughout the world, especially in environments that are dynamic, mobile, and often remote.

A typical solution features the CardLogix M.O.S.T.®, or Credentsys® Java cards, or the CardLogix ePassport, which powerfully encrypt and secure data. When inserted into a Datastrip reader, like the popular handheld Easy Verify™ model, a CardLogix software program retrieves biometrics, such as fingerprints, that accompany an identity profile of the cardholder. These are compared to the cardholder to verify identity. The handheld Datacard Biometric Terminal is rugged and battery powered, making it ideal for use anywhere that a secure checkpoint is required, such as in ICAO-specified environments.
