(NYSE MKT:IDN), a leader in identity authentication, verification and validation technology solutions, today announced the signing of a reseller agreement with Carolina Data Systems, a full service IT company that is the largest provider of computer and point-of-sale systems to ABC (alcoholic beverage control) boards and their retail establishments in the state of North Carolina. Carolina Data Systems and its subsidiary, SCRC, currently provide hardware and software services to 145 North Carolina ABC boards representing 300 ABC retail establishments across the state. The reseller agreement will enable Carolina Data Systems to deliver Intellicheck's industry leading Age ID™ technology solution making it possible for its customers to quickly implement the most effective identification authentication technology solution.

"We are pleased to welcome Carolina Data Systems as a valued channel partner. This agreement enables CDS clients to rapidly and easily deploy and operate our Age ID technology solution. As many state ABC boards recognize, Age ID provides critical, real-time identification authentication that prevents the sale of age-restricted products to minors, while also helping to deter fraudulent sales. We previously announced to our shareholders that we will identify and work closely with channel partners as we scale our business. Working with partners such as Carolina Data Systems provides Intellicheck with market leverage and opportunities to help a broader number of communities address the challenges of underage drinking," said Intellicheck CEO Dr. William Roof.

Carolina Data Systems President D. Christopher Whitford said the agreement addresses an important need. "This agreement with Intellicheck culminates our search for a premier ID solution for our customers," said Whitford. "This has been a high priority for Carolina Data Systems. The State ABC Commission has placed great emphasis on the importance of effective identity verification. Our research has determined that Intellicheck will help ABC boards deliver on that mandate more effectively than any other solution. Our goal is to provide our customers with the most comprehensive market-leading benefits and capabilities. After looking at the technology solutions available in the marketplace, it became clear that Intellicheck was the logical business partner because of its industry leading identification authentication technology solutions. We are thrilled to be able to offer this affordable but powerful technology to our existing and future customers."

Intellicheck's Age ID identity authentication and validation solution reads the barcode data encoded on driver licenses and government issued IDs, instantly verifying the authenticity of the identification and age information via an integrated point of sale tool or a mobile device. Age ID draws on a comprehensive database, updated on an ongoing basis, to ensure information is timely and accurate. It provides the most up-to-date solution to the problem of spotting fake and altered IDs with its ability to read more than 200 unique DMV barcode formats from every U.S. state and Canadian province. Age ID is available as an app for mobile devices, or can be integrated with the point-of-sale system.

Intellicheck holds 25 patents and has an additional nine patents pending, many pertaining to identification technology. Its real-time identity authentication and validation solutions support customers in the retail, hospitality, national defense, law enforcement, and financial markets. The Company's products scan, authenticate and analyze components of identity documents including driver licenses, military identification cards and other government forms of identification containing magnetic stripe, barcode and smart chip information. Once extracted from the identity card, the information can be used to provide safety, security and efficiencies throughout these markets.
