Reston, Virginia; June. 04, 2009 - Daon, the award-winning global provider of identity assurance software and services, announced today that Lumidigm has joined the many companies who are enhancing their market position by integrating with the global leader in biometrics platforms.

DaonAdvantage™ is an exciting solution partner program which provides a structured, yet lightweight model through which Daon's partners can integrate their technologies directly into Daon's industry leading product suite using a purpose built integration and testing framework. Once integrated by the partner, Daon tests and certifies the integration. Daon charges no fees for participation and certification in the program and provides technical support to partners throughout the process. Partners benefit by gaining access to the broad suite of functionality provided by the Daon platform enabling them to offer stronger, more comprehensive solutions to the market.

"The Lumidigm Venus fingerprint sensor was designed to address the significant operational challenges facing very large scale biometrics deployments," said Phil Scarfo, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Lumidigm. "Participating in the DaonAdvantage program is a great opportunity for Lumidigm to further extend the benefits of multispectral imaging technology to those customers seeking the highest quality and most robust biometrics solutions," Scarfo added.

Daon's identity management system provides the centralized platform and client biometric infrastructure for a variety of uses including employee credentialing, government benefits programs, border management, civil ID, airport e-gate systems and immigration control, with DaonEngine™ serving as the platform and additional Daon software being used for remote enrollment and verification. Daon's COTS software and biometric expertise has proven to be invaluable in the delivery of cost-effective, consistent and reliable solutions.
