IdentiPHI, Inc.'s SAFsolution 5 Enterprise Edition has been chosen by one of the largest pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) in the country to enhance biometric authentication and security access across its network. SAFsolution, together with IdentiPHI's strategic partner Zvetco Biometrics' fingerprint readers, will allow the PBM to facilitate its password administration process, support secure use of multipersonnel terminals, and tighten network access in accordance with strict patient-privacy regulations.

IdentiPHI SAFsolution, in conjunction with Zvetco's Verifi P4000 and P5000 fingerprint readers--already installed on the PBM's network--initially will support 10,000 users.
