M2SYS Technology Named a Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) Top 10 Innovative Technology Company
TAG Honors the State’s “Best of the Best” for Innovation and Contributions to Georgia’s Technology Community
ATLANTA (March 20, 2014) – The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced M2SYS Technology as one of its Top 10 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2014 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 26, 2014, at the Cobb Galleria Centre, Atlanta.
The “Top 10” most innovative technology companies are chosen from among TAG’s “Top 40” 2014 list and were chosen based on a number of criteria, including: degree of innovation; scope and financial impact of innovation; likelihood of success; and promotion of Georgia’s innovative efforts nationally and internationally.
“The 2014 Top 10 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of the best from Georgia’s Technology community,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “The 2014 Top 10 finalists are shining examples of what makes our State such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community.”
This year’s Top 10 Companies were selected from among over 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected to be in the Top 10 will be given the opportunity to present at the annual Georgia Technology Summit before a crowd of more than 1,300 of the state’s technology leaders.
Recognized for its innovation in designing and developing scalable and practical biometric identity management solutions that help governments and business across the world save money and resources, build accountability, and establish trust, M2SYS Technology was honored as a Top 10 company in this year’s TAG awards. Proving that practical ingenuity is a key competitive advantage for those looking to deploy biometrics for identity management, M2SYS recently demonstrated their innovation with the release of their M2-FuseID™ hybrid fingerprint and finger vein reader that provides liveness detection and spoof –proof technology for highly secure and sensitive biometric operations, and their M2-RapidCheck™ mobile biometric system for law-enforcement, the military, border control, and counter-terrorism unit environments to enroll, identify and verify subject identities in the field. Plus, using their unique, innovative scientific approach to system design and consistently pushing the envelope of performance, M2SYS now boasts the fastest fingerprint search and deduplication engine in the world with the ability to match 200 million fingerprints per second in a single commodity server and deduplicate millions of fingerprints in matter of hours which traditionally required weeks or months.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by TAG as one of the Top 10 most innovative companies in Georgia,” commented Mizan Rahman, Founder and CEO of M2SYS Technology. “We feel fortunate to be entrenched here and fully support the Georgia community, considered one of the most important and influential locales for technology in the entire country. We take great pride in establishing our headquarters in the Atlanta area and it’s humbling to be recognized for our innovative spirit.”
