Pat Botz is the newest partner and member of the senior management team at Valid Technologies. His focus is consulting services aimed at eliminating passwords and architecture and design for exploitation of VSSA Biometric Authentication across the enterprise. Pat will also head up VSSA initiatives within the healthcare market and contribute to the architecture of new and custom releases of VSSA.
Pat started his career with Computer Data Corporation developing Unix-based tools.

VSSA is an excellent tool that makes it easy to deploy biometrics to existing environments and applications. We can demonstrate an almost immediate ROI in many cases. It’s a win/win solution.”
