A Leading Multinational Biopharmaceutical Company Chooses Bioscrypt 3D Facial Recognition Solution to Secure its New International Administration and Production Centers

    Bioscrypt VisionAccess 3D Face Readers meet unique needs of
    pharmaceutical industry

    TORONTO, Aug. 28 /CNW/ - Bioscrypt Inc. (TSX: BYT), a leading provider of
enterprise access control technology, today announced a leading multinational
integrated biopharmaceutical company and one of the fastest growing
pharmaceutical companies on NASDAQ, has chosen Bioscrypt's VisionAccess 3D
facial recognition technology to secure access to its facilities and white
rooms, where it produces pharmaceuticals.
    Bioscrypt's 3D facial recognition biometric technology both enhances and
simplifies the Company's access control processes, allowing it to increase
security as well as ease of use for employees. VisionAccess allows employees
to enter facilities using their face as the sole identification factor. This
eliminates the need for badges, which are not allowed in production or white
rooms where employees cannot bring any foreign objects. Bioscrypt's solution
also enabled the Company to better meet regulatory requirements for securing
white rooms.
    "With the strong regulations in our business, we have looked at various
solutions to secure our new administration and production site ranging from
Smart Cards, PIN codes and fingerprint biometrics but 3D face recognition from
Bioscrypt was clearly the best solution in the market to secure a
pharmaceutical production site," said the Project Director at the Company. "3D
face provides the high level of security required to secure access to white
rooms where drugs are produced. The solution is extremely quick, elegant and
above all it does not require a badge as no products are allowed inside white
rooms. Our employees have their face as the sole identifier to enter the
building and access the white rooms!"
    The company deployed 10 Bioscrypt VisionAccess 3D Face Readers at control
points inside its building as well as additional face readers at the main
entrances at its new administration and production site in Switzerland. As
employees walk up to a door, they pause for less than a second in front of a
reader which confirms their identity against a database, allowing their 3D
facial patterns to be their single identifier.
    "We are pleased to provide the Company with a means for securing their
labs in a way that meets the unique requirements of the pharmaceuticals
industry," said Robert M. Douglas, President and CEO of Bioscrypt. "Our
distinctive 3D physical access control reader, VisionAccess, was able to help
the biopharmaceutical company eliminate the need for badge management."
