Parente Randolph Secures Access to New Corporate Headquarters With BIO-key(R) Biometric Identification

Financial Services Provider Deploys Biometric Access Control Solution,

Eliminating Need for PINs or ID Cards

WALL, N.J., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BKYI), a leader in wireless public safety solutions and finger-based biometric identification, announced today that Parente Randolph ("Parente"), a leading accounting and consultant firm, has deployed BIO-key's biometric identity solution to secure their new headquarters.

Parente, headquartered in Philadelphia, is one of the largest accounting and consulting firms in the United States and provides a full array of financial services to their clients. In order to provide a higher level of security for their new headquarters, Parente's management team installed an access control system manufactured by BIO-key's partner, NextGenID Inc. This access control system employs BIO-key's patented and award winning biometric matching software to identify individuals before granting access to the facility. In order to enter Parente's offices at One Liberty Place in Philadelphia, employees and registered visitors simply place their finger on a conveniently located reader to gain access. Consequently, employees and visitors no longer need to carry keys or ID cards and are not burdened with having to remember PINs.

Bob Ciaruffoli, Chairman and CEO of Parente stated, "As our corporate mission states, we have an uncompromising dedication to quality and excellence in everything we undertake. After evaluating multiple options to secure our new headquarters, choosing BIO-key's fingerprint biometric access solution, which provides superior accuracy and convenience was a natural choice."

Mike DePasquale, BIO-key's President and CEO added, "Our biometric physical and logical access solutions provide superior security without the need to carry access control cards or keys which can be reproduced, lost or stolen. Our more secure and convenient alternative to enter a facility simply relies on a person to present his finger, which a user can't forget or misplace. Virtually any organization can now implement a 'door to desktop' identity solution based on BIO-key's superior matching algorithm to improve security, reduce cost and improve user convenience."
