PAYGOV partners with First Biometrics to take PCI security to the next level.

PayGOV.US (PayGOV) would like to announce their partnership with a leader in biometric technology, First Biometrics. A Huntsville Alabama company, First Biometrics has patented the next evolutionary leap in security.

The First Biometrics team have worked to develop a secure, multi-functional device to change how we think about personal security. Their product combines all the cards normally found in your wallet in one, easy to use product, no larger than a standard credit card. The revolutionary design eliminates the need to carry bulky wallets or fumble with multiple cards. Using advanced biometrics, each device is kept secure, and accessible only by the intended user. The user can store their credit/debit cards, personal identification, insurance, and can even be used as a physical access or employee id card. Information for up to 5 people can be stored on the device and each persons’ information only accessible with a valid thumb print.

Charlie Gomez, found of First Biometrics explained the product, “Our goal was to develop a multi-functional storage device to replace your wallet. One tool to replace all your cards. In addition to securely storing your credit and insurance cards, it can also be used as the ideal identification and access card for HIPPA and PCI regulated facilities. The device can be white labeled and modified to fit the needs of our clients.”

PayGOV and First Biometrics are excited to be on the cutting edge of tomorrows technology, today.
