Honeywell Inks OEM Agreement With Biometric, Credentialing Provider


ImageWare® Systems Inc., a developer of identity management solutions, has signed a 3-year, royalty-based, licensing agreement with Honeywell Security. This agreement allows Honeywell to integrate biometric enrollment and identity proofing, as well as card management and issuance of biometrically-enabled secure credentials, into its physical access control product suite. This will enable complete, end-to-end access control solutions for Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC), border management and other mission-critical environments.

ImageWare’s IWS™ Biometric Engine™, IWS EPI™ Builder and IWS EPI Card Management System™ will be integrated into several Honeywell physical access control product families including Pro-Watch®, SmartPlus™, WIN-PAK®, Vindicator® and LobbyWorks™.

Honeywell will initially offer these solutions to federal government agencies and other enterprises in highly regulated industries that require integrated logical and physical access control systems.

“We believe ImageWare’s open architecture and interoperable technologies will assist Honeywell in meeting the growing demand for biometric identity management, credentialing and card management capabilities in government and other vertical markets, including financial, healthcare and education,” said John Lorenty, general manager, Honeywell Systems Group.
