TORONTO -- Bioscrypt Inc. (TSX: BYT), a leading provider of enterprise access control technologies, announced today that CATSA has selected a handheld rugged biometric reader from Labcal Technologies Inc. that incorporates Bioscrypt technology to authenticate employees in 29 Canadian airports. Bioscrypt and Labcal collaborated closely to integrate Bioscrypt's award winning fingerprint matching algorithm in Labcal's reader, the Be.U MobileT.
CATSA's RAIC program is similar to the U.S.-based Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) program implemented by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security program. The Canada-wide deployment of the solution provided by Bioscrypt and Labcal allows airport authorities to immediately adjust the level of security at any access point or in large areas such as the tarmac. The solution can be deployed in any airport in any country looking to enhance the safety of passengers and diminish the threat of terrorist attacks.
"The integration of Bioscrypt technology in our handheld device allows us to meet CATSA requirements and offer our other customers a robust, flexible and reliable product." said Pierre Root, President and CEO of Labcal. "This collaboration allows us to continue positioning our Be.U Mobile as the best mobile biometric authentication platform on the market".
