Department of Defense Office Begins Biometric Security Implementation To Eliminate Administration Costs and Provide 'Added Factor' Authentication


REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitalPersonaŽ today announced that the Headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) has purchased 1300 U.are.UŽ Pro fingerprint recognition systems to enhance network security at desktops within its Washington, D.C. offices. Leveraging U.are.U Pro's integration with Microsoft Active Directory, the installation provides an added layer of security for network logons using Common Access Cards (CAC). By implementing this solution, the DOD will reduce taxpayer dollars being spent on authentication administration costs by taking PINs and passwords out of the hands of end-users.

"Incorporating DigitalPersona's solution improves network authentication while reducing the expense and productivity problems related to forgotten PINs and passwords, because users no longer have to remember them," said Jim Ward, President of EyeIT.com, Inc., who participated in the design and the implementation of the system. "Now, you can use the strongest passwords allowed by the system without compromising usability or performance for the users. Costly and productivity-robbing efforts to have incorrectly entered or forgotten PINs and passwords unlocked and reset are virtually eliminated."
