NEW YORK, April 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VerifyMe, Inc. (OTCQB:VRME), a pioneer in patented physical, cyber and biometric technologies that prevent identity theft, counterfeiting and fraud, announced today it has appointed security and authentication industry veteran Kristine Murty as Vice President of Digital Sales.
