SuperCom awarded offender monitoring contract in Europe

July 6, 2015 - 

SuperCom announced that its M2M division has been awarded a new contract with an undisclosed European government to deploy a new biometrics-based electronic monitoring solution.

The biometric solution aims to develop a more comprehensive and transparent electronic surveillance platform to accurately track and monitor hundreds of enrollees in the country’s new probation program.

PureSecurity Suite is an electronic monitoring and tracking platform which offers a range of features including secure communication, advanced security, anti-tamper mechanisms, voice communication, unique touch screens, fingerprint biometrics and extended battery life.

SuperCom said it will deploy the monitoring system within the next two months and will continue to operate it for the next five years.

“We are excited with this new contract, another vote of confidence in our solutions to enhance public safety measured by reducing crime while reducing government cost, propelling us forward in the rapidly growing global Electronic Monitoring for public safety market projected to be in excess of $6 billion by 2018,” said Arie Trabelsi, president and CEO of SuperCom. “Furthermore, we are happy bring on a new country and national government customer to SuperCom’s growing customer base, which we are looking forward to working with closely over the next years as we offer our rapidly growing array of innovate government solutions.”

Previously reported, SuperCom demonstrated its SuperPay suite of secure mobile payments solutions, including biometrics authentication, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona back in March.
