SecuGen scores zero percent false acceptance and zero percent false rejection rates in IBG's primary visit Comparative Biometric Testing Study

Milpitas, CA (March 18, 2002) - In International Biometric Group's (IBG) Comparative Biometric Testing Study of the leading biometric systems, SecuGen's biometric mouse and software scored 0% False Acceptance Rate (FAR) and 0% False Rejection Rate (FRR) at the low security threshold during the primary visit. IBG's Testing evaluates biometric systems over a range of security thresholds and includes a secondary visit six weeks after enrollment in addition to the primary visit.

"SecuGen's exceptional performance during the IBG study represents strong third-party validation for our biometric technology," said Robert Kyle, President and CEO of SecuGen Corporation. "This technology is the basis of our many products used in physical access security, network security, and in financial transaction security."

The tests were performed by IBG, a New York based group that tests the accuracy of leading biometric systems in typical IT security and e-commerce environments. The performance metrics reported above are derived from their Round Three Comparative Biometric Testing conducted in 2001 and sponsored by industry leaders including Lockheed Martin, American Airlines, EDS, Microsoft, Star Systems, Fidelity Investments and FSTC. IBG has tested over 24 different biometric products since it began in 1998. Details of the testing are available only to purchasers of the report.
