BIO-key, a provider of biometric software and hardware solutions for strong, convenient user authentication and large-scale identity, announced today that after a successful initial deployment of BIO-key biometric authentication solutions, the Dubai Police Force has expanded its use of the Company’s software and hardware solutions.

The expansion includes an annual software subscription renewal and purchase of additional PIV-Pro FIPS 201 compliant fingerprint scanners and additional subscription licenses for use with BIO-key’s ID Director for Windows, building on their initial deployment in 2019. The Dubai Police Force is utilizing BIO-key technology to secure access to desktop and mobile devices as well as internal access to Windows applications. BIO-key solutions enable each user’s biometric to serve as the strongest form of multi-factor authentication for devices and applications.

Mike DePasquale, BIO-key’s CEO, commented, “The Dubai Police Force, one of the world’s premier law enforcement agencies, is recognized for its use of innovative technologies and extremely high security standards. We were proud to be initially selected for this program in March 2019. The program’s expansion is further testament to the performance and value of our technology and service and should serve as a strong reference for other law enforcement customers.’
