Government, Financial, Medical, Transit, Law Enforcement Groups

Are Among Those Registered to Attend Show in New York This Month

Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC(R)) released today an impressive list of companies and organizations pre-registered to attend its BiometriTech(TM) conference. The new event showcasing biometric security solutions will take place June 25-27 at the Hotel Penn in Midtown Manhattan.

The September 11th terrorist attacks have created a heightened security tension in New York — and worldwide. Biometric physical security technologies are quickly becoming one solution relied upon when foolproof access control and identification is required. Biometric solutions are also being deployed to protect precious corporate data. There is no more secure, hack-proof solution than biometrics for controlling access to corporate facilities, networks and sensitive databases.

Private sector companies planning to send representatives to BiometriTech(TM) include:

IBM AT&T

AOL Time Warner Lufthansa

Trump Tower ADT Security Systems

AIG Hilton Hotels

AXA Reinsurance Citigroup

Computer Associates Goldman Sachs

JP Morgan Chase Identix

Lehman Brothers Lockheed Martin

Merrill Lynch Siemens

Visionics Toyota

Verizon Deutsche Bank

Many prominent public sector organizations with the ultimate responsibility of securing America have committed to attend the show as well:

British Consulate General

Columbia University

U.S. Department of Defense

U.S. Gov’t Services Admin.

Hospital for Special Surgery

MTA NYC Transit

“Long before September 11th, the concept of achieving greater security using Biometrics was gaining momentum. Now, many companies, agencies, law enforcement groups, property/facility managers — all seeking to control access or protect data — have accelerated their new security initiatives. Biometric technologies are now at a point where the groups listed above realize they represent viable, reliable solutions for their particular applications,” explained Rich Tehrani, TMC(R) president and conference co-chairman for BiometriTech(TM).

“BiometriTech(TM) is the perfect event where attendees can learn and network and gather the research they need to make intelligent choices about actually buying and deploying solutions,” added Tehrani.

According to Marc Robins, TMC’s(R) VP of Publications and Trade Shows, the pre-registration list proves that BiometriTech(TM) is coming along at exactly the right time and is in exactly the right location. “There are enough deployments of Biometrics already to validate that the technology works and is poised to become the leading authentication and security solution used worldwide. Simply by signing on and attending the event, these prominent private and public sector groups are showing that they believe in this technology and recognize it may be the only way to feel certain that you are effectively controlling physical and logical access,” said Robins.
