The Verifi P5000 provides a perfect biometric tool for identifying unique individuals from within extremely large databases.

ORLANDO, FLA., Sept. 19, 2006; Best-in-class fingerprint authentication hardware manufacturer and network security solution provider Zvetco Biometrics today announced the Verifi P5000 USB Fingerprint Reader. The Verifi P5000 is a sleek and powerful new design, expanding the capabilities of Zvetco's award-winning Verifi fingerprint readers. The P5000 is designed to handle the largest one-to-many (1:N) identification schemes, in government, enterprise or Web transactions. It features a high-resolution AuthenTec large area silicon sensor that captures larger and more detailed fingerprint images, making them suitable for large scale searches.

"Zvetco's P5000 provides a perfect biometric tool for identifying unique individuals from within extremely large databases, such as credit card companies identifying online purchasers, authentication of online traders, or healthcare and pharmacy patient identification," said Zavi Cohen, CEO of Zvetco Biometrics. "Zvetco's new Verifi P5000 fingerprint reader features a significantly larger sensor that captures more minutia points from the fingerprint image, ensuring the highest accuracy match for every user. This technology introduces a cost-effective solution for one-to-many authentication and complements FIPS-201 deployments with quick and accurate identification of an individual fingerprint from within even the largest government or enterprise database."

Zvetco's Verifi P5000 is also an ideal solution for protecting government desktops and networks everywhere. The P5000 is designed to facilitate government logical access -- the protection of personal computers and electronic data to help prevent the inside threat. The AuthenTec sensor used in the P5000 is undergoing the final qualification stages to achieve FIPS-201 compliance.
