Press Release


Patented strong user authentication provides reliable way to meet compliance obligations

Bellevue, Wash., February 6 — Net Nanny Software International Inc. (OTCBB: NNSWF) (CDNX: NNS), the leader in biometric keystroke authentication technology, today announced that SyMetric Sciences Inc., of Montreal, Canada, is now shipping its clinical data management software with BioPassword, to help ensure that its customers, in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology research industries, are properly authenticating individuals with access to sensitive clinical research data.

“Federal guidelines in the health sciences industry are driving demand for authentication solutions such as ours,” said Andrew Tull, Net Nanny’s VP of sales. “SyMetric, and a growing number of other companies serving the health care industry, are choosing BioPassword for their authentication needs, because they are finding that it is the fastest and most effective way to help solve their security compliance obligations.”

Clinical research organizations are mandated to comply with FDA regulations 21 CFR Part 11, which require tracking the activity and ownership of clinical data in audit trails. BioPassword provides an extra layer of security to user names and passwords, to ensure that user identities have not been stolen or otherwise used improperly. SyMetric Sciences licenses clinical data management software, providing an extended and fully-validated suite of data management and imaging tools in full compliance with international regulatory standards.

“Adding BioPassword to our user authentication system not only strengthens the security features of our clinical data management software, but also creates unique “digital signatures” conforming to FDA regulations, when used with our activity tracking technology,” said Robert Major, founder and president of SyMetric Sciences, Inc.  “BioPassword is an elegant solution and since no additional hardware is required, it is easy to deploy and implement.  The software developer’s kit (SDK) also gave us a high degree of flexibility to integrate the BioPassword technology exactly where we needed it.”

Net Nanny will receive a recurring revenue stream based on the number of seats that SyMetric licenses to its new and existing customer base.

BioPassword will be demonstrated at the RSA Security Conference, February 19-21 at McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, CA, in Booth #1702.
