ABnote's Secure My Wallet is Sesames Finalist at Cartes Paris
Fort Lee, New Jersey – November 18, 2013 – ABnote, a leading global card manufacturer and provider of financial and secure credentialing solutions, and LaserLock Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:LLTI), a global leader in providing state-of-the-art authentication solutions have collaborated to create “Secure My Wallet”, a card based mobile offering that can securely access a healthcare account across multiple healthcare provider networks. Secure My Wallet has been named a finalist for a Sesames Award in the Identification/ID Cards/Health category. This honor will be awarded to ten top technological innovations across multiple sectors, and will be announced Monday, November 18.
The ABnote solution combines the Laserlock Technologies VerifyMe™ authentication application with ABnote’s TSM (Trusted Service Manager) and its NFC wallet application, resulting in a configurable mobile application that allows a consumer to easily and securely manage their healthcare network access.
“Unlike the networks for financial payment systems, the legacy infrastructure in today’s healthcare ecosystem will take some time to evolve into a single cohesive network that provides global healthcare record access for authorized entities. By combining the VerifyMe application with our existing wallet and TSM service we’ve essentially developed a staged offer for the industry that allows one card application to securely authenticate and communicate to any healthcare network” said John Ekers, ABnote’s Global CIO. He added, “Certainly healthcare solutions will continue to drive the broader NFC ecosystem and we expect to see many more hybrid offers that will combine security, user authentication and innovation to advance the services that security consumers and healthcare practitioners expect.”
"Protecting patient privacy and insuring only authorized access to healthcare information is an exceptional use of our VerifyMe technology. “Secure My Wallet” is a great application for VerifyMe’s easy to use and rapid 3-factor authentication solution. For the first time, not only can you easily exceed HIPAA, HHS, DEA and FDA requirements, but you can do so in a manner that’s economical and accessible to anyone with a connected device with a webcam or microphone” said Neil Alpert, LaserLock Technologies CEO and Director. “We’ve successfully integrated biometric verification into an intuitive, multi-factor authentication solution that can free us all from the weaknesses, complexities and problems associated with traditional authentication solutions.”
The combined solution will be demonstrated in the ABnote booth in Hall 4, Aisle J, Booth 92 at the Cartes Paris Secure Connexions Event, taking place from Nov. 19 – 21 at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre.
