WASHINGTON, D.C., November 18, 2013 - LaserLock Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: LLTI), a global leader in providing state-of-the-art authentication solutions and ABnote, a leading global card manufacturer and provider of financial and secure credentialing 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 solution combines 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.
“To have ABnote be a finalist for a Sesames Award is an honor and we are proud of our strong relationship with ABnote,” said Neil Alpert, Chief Executive Officer. “This innovative solution strongly protects patient privacy in electronic healthcare record databases and it expands the scope of our relationship with ABnote to include not only our security inks, which are utilized to protect government documents around the world, but now our strong, multi-factor authentication solution VerifyMeTM as well. We are optimistic about the future of our relationship combining both physical and digital authentication solutions.”
“Unlike the networks for financial payment systems, the legacy infrastructure in today’s healthcare ecosystem is still evolving 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, “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, and we look forward to a continued relationship with LaserLock Technologies to see this to fruition.”
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.
