Cisco, CyberLock, ImageWare Systems and Wave Systems Discuss Security Solutions

RYE BROOK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- ImageWare Systems (OTCQB: IWSY), Wave Systems (NASDAQ: WAVX)

Cisco
Mrs. Ulrica de-Fort Menares, Director of Product Management for Cisco Medianet, told us, "An intelligent network must become more application-savvy. It must have the ability to determine the importance of a session based on its business value, and treat the session accordingly, end to end. One of the key medianet characteristics is its ability to become media-aware. Imagine this: The network can discover the type of endpoint and automatically configure the switch port for that type of device. This ability to plug and play any endpoint in the network is an example of tight integration between an intelligent network and an endpoint."

CyberLock

CyberLock announced a new version of the CyberKey Vault 20, the CyberKey Vault 20 FX. The redesign features a sleek new look with weatherized input modules and an embedded Flex System Hub for improved performance, all offered at a new, lower price.

"The CyberKey Vault 20 FX is our most advanced key control cabinet (http://www.cyberlock.com/cyberkey-vaults.html) yet," said James McGowan, VP of Sales and Marketing at Videx. "We built on the award winning original design and added extra durability and speed to meet the needs of today's demanding end-users. We believe it will surpass market expectations."

The Vault 20 FX is an intelligent key cabinet designed to manage, program, and dispense CyberKey smart keys. The keys are stored unprogrammed and locked securely in the cabinet until an RFID card and/or PIN code is presented to the cabinet. After reading the card and/or accepting the PIN, the CyberKey Vault programs a CyberKey with the individual's permissions. Keys are programmed with access privileges for each user, detailing which electronic locks (http://www.cyberlock.com/cyberlock_cylinders.html) it can open and when. An audit record of all events is stored in both the locks and the keys. Each time a key is used at a lock, a record of the lock ID, date, and time is stored in the key, and a record of the key ID, date, and time is stored in the lock.

CyberKeys feature a unique electronic ID, preventing duplication. Although two keys can be programmed alike, each one leaves its own unique record within the system. When the key is returned to the Vault, the Vault downloads the key's audit trail, removes its permissions, and begins charging the key.

Videx offers three robust smart key vaults: CyberKey Vault 1, CyberKey Vault 20 FX, and CyberKey Vault WR. To learn more about the CyberLock line of access control (http://www.cyberlock.com/cyberlock_overview.html) products, please visit our website at www.cyberlock.com.

ImageWare Systems

ImageWare Systems recently announced, "In addition to product development, ImageWare has been preparing for a major international deployment as the exclusive provider of biometric identity management for a prime contractor installing cargo scanning security at the Republic of Ecuador's major seaports. The initial deployment is currently scheduled to begin in the early part of 2013 at the Port of Guayaquil, the country's main seaport that handles a majority of its imports and exports. ImageWare expects to receive a fee for every port worker receiving credentials, as well as an annual management and maintenance fee, based on a percentage of the initial credentialing cost per worker. Depending upon the number of enrollees, the company expects the contract value to exceed $3.0 million over its seven year term."

"The high-end biometric secure credentialing solution we are providing for Ecuador is the same technology being deployed for the Los Angeles World Airports, which we announced earlier this year," noted Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO. "In fact, we can easily replicate this platform for virtually any port system that needs transportation worker identification cards in order to comply with the SAFE Port Act. Not only are our solutions easily deployable, for ImageWare they generally represent gross margins above 70% as well as a recurring revenue stream. Our unique patented technology has the potential to provide us strong, steady revenue growth, along with excellent forward-looking visibility."

The 6th Annual Conference
2013 Payments Summit
February 5-7 -- Grand America Hotel -- Salt Lake City
http://www.SCAPayments.com

Join the Ascent to EMV and Smart Mobile Payments
Over 500 executive delegates came together last February in Salt Lake City for Payments Summit -- the industry's leading forum for smart, secure payment technology, implementation, and markets. For 2013, we're building on that success with a larger meeting facility and an up-to-the minute conference agenda. And we're continuing our coverage of every leading transaction platform: EMV card payments, mobile payments, and transit payments. Reserve your seat now at this gathering of leading smart card practitioners, solutions developers, end users, and suppliers.

The US is the world's largest payments ecosystem and the migration to EMV -- the global transaction security standard -- has now begun in earnest. Yet, for many banks, credit unions, issuers and merchants there's still a frustrating lack of clarity. At the same time, NFC-enabled payments are starting to take shape as card networks, telecoms and handset manufacturers target the market with mobile wallet solutions. But no ubiquitous model for all merchants and issuers has emerged. Finally, transit ridership is considered by many to be the "killer app" in expanding the use of open standards-based contactless bank card and mobile payments, and major transit operators have launched pilots nationwide.

Considerable work remains to clear a path for this migration. Payments Summit is the place to consult the trailblazers and plan your own journey.

Day on the Slopes Ski Trip: February 3 -- Pre-conference Workshops: February 4. Exhibit and sponsor marketing opportunities are available: Contact Bill Rutledge at [email protected] +1 212-866-2169.
