Alacera to leverage Privaris plusID Personal, wireless biometric technology to provide heightened security for its ID verification module

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Privaris, a leading provider of personal, wireless identity verification solutions, today announced that leading converged security protection provider Alacera International Corporation will integrate Privaris’ plusID personal biometric tokens into its SentrixTM identity verification module, through an OEM relationship. With the addition of plusID, the module will become a cornerstone for Alacera’s converged security solutions, which includes Physical Security Protection (PSP), Homeland Security Protection (HSP), and Information Assurance (IA) platforms.

plusID is the world's first personal wireless biometric token. The convenient, key-fob sized device provides secure access to multiple facilities, computers and networks, adding the heightened security of biometrics through a convenient and cost-effective delivery model. plusID allows rapid integration by working seamlessly with existing physical and logical security systems and ensures personal privacy by performing all biometric processing on the user's personal device, rather than an external database. Tamper-resistant and built to withstand digital and physical attack, plusID cannot be used by anyone else if lost or stolen, unlike traditional identity verification approaches such as key cards and passwords.

After surveying more than twenty vendors in the identity verification space, Alacera selected Privaris’ biometric technology to offer its customers a heightened security solution that interfaces with their existing security infrastructure. Alacera will rely on plusID’s core technology to provide non-repudiation evidence of identity for audit compliance on both physical and logical (IT) security systems. Additionally, Alacera will tap Privaris’ expertise in the identity verification industry to provide Alacera’s customers with comprehensive technology insight and support.

“Bringing best of breed global security solutions to the Middle East is a mission that we take great pride in,” said Arpad Toth, Alacera CEO and Chairman of the Board. “Privaris is the only manufacturer offering the multi-function high security technology capabilities that we need to meet customer demand. We are excited to now offer a self-contained converged solution that is both flexible and easy to manage.”
