SAP and Daon Provide Public Security Customers with Access to Wide Range of Biometric Solutions

In order to help public safety and security organizations deliver seamless and more effective services, Daon and SAP AG (NYSE:SAP) today announced that leading biometric identity assurance provider Daon has been awarded an SAP NetWeaver® certification for its DaonEngine® platform. As a result public security organizations can seamlessly process all types of biometric data with their SAP systems. For example, this will allow border control officials to more easily confirm identities or police organizations to identify potential suspects more efficiently. DaonEngine® enables customers to manage biometric data and associated identity functions to provide a broad range of services including verification, identification, watchlist management, investigation and identity issuance.

Certified for SAP NetWeaver

“By achieving the SAP NetWeaver certification, we are making it possible for public security organizations to move away from point-to-point security solutions to a more holistic data management process that incorporates biometrics,” said Tom Grissen, CEO of Daon. “With more countries applying biometrics, clients can now achieve more benefits from their SAP platform without the need to invest in additional infrastructure. In addition, the integration of our platform with SAP NetWeaver enables biometrics and geographical information systems to run smoothly with all types of SAP systems. This is a key element for business software providers who want to succeed in the public security market.”

Products seeking “Certified for SAP NetWeaver” status undergo a comprehensive assessment of their delivery and operational capabilities. The certification ensures that customers can benefit from simpler IT integration and greater flexibility to run their business.

Daon is an active member of SAP’s Industry Value Network for Public Security. This group brings together customers, partners and SAP to develop solutions that solve the unique challenges of the public security industry. The solutions are based on an enterprise service-oriented architecture (enterprise SOA) and open standards to fuel a new dimension of industry interoperability and collaboration.

Integration of SAP and All Common Biometric Solutions

“With the SAP NetWeaver - Daon integration, SAP continues to improve and invest in the extension of our solution portfolio for public safety and security customers,” said Sean O’Brien, vice president Industry Business Unit Public Security, SAP. “Increasingly our customers are seeking a one stop shop for improving safety and security, integrating through our platform, key strategic partners such as Daon, ensures we are able to provide that holistic platform for public security, Daon delivers, effectively a biometric bridge through which all leading biometric vendors and devices can be integrated with SAP.”

The announcement was made in conjunction with the rollout of the SAP initiative “Safer and More Sustainable Cities”, a series of networking events in North America, Europe and Asia. During these events SAP and partners present their comprehensive solution portfolios for police organizations, law enforcement agencies, first responders, emergency management agencies and other local government agencies.
