MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the non-AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System) fingerprint market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Precise Biometrics with the 2008 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Emerging Company of the Year for its high-quality authentication method, Precise Match-on-Card(TM).
Precise Biometrics offers a software combination of smart card and fingerprint technology demonstrating superior performance and extremely secure and accurate authentication. The company has offered its core technology, Precise BioMatch(TM), since 1999. Precise BioMatch(TM), in combination with smart cards, is used to create the secure, highly accurate Precise Match-on-Card(TM) system, which both stores and matches fingerprints on a smart card. It not only replaces personal identification numbers and passwords but also makes use of the secure environment of the chip.
Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Neelima Sagar noted, "Exceptional customer service and support, technical expertise, and strategic alliances and partnerships have contributed to the success of Precise Biometrics. The company has been able to serve its customers globally because of its trustworthy relationships with its partners."
Precise Match-on-Card(TM) offers several key differentiating factors
that ensure its security as well as its excellent level of customer
satisfaction. The interoperability of the system allows each client to
tailor the requirements of readers, smart cards and applications based on
specific budgets and needs. The security is based on the smart card
security infrastructure. The card integrity and the user privacy are
preserved due to matching decisions being taken entirely inside the card.
The logic remains identical to on-card PIN verification. Therefore, the
scalability, flexibility, security and ease of deployment, for which the
smart card is so justly appreciated, is maintained with the introduction
