Intellicheck Mobilisa wins $250K access control contract for classified government facility

July 21, 2016 - 

Intellicheck Mobilisa has been awarded a $250,000 federal contract to expand the deployment of its biometric access control solution Defense ID at a highly classified federal government facility in the Washington, D.C. area.

The contract will more effectively enable security personnel to protect the highly sensitive federal facility with Intellicheck’s real-time identification authentication solution.

“Defense ID was designed to address a security environment that is fluid and constantly evolving,” said Dr. William Roof, Intellicheck CEO. “Our expertise in addressing security challenges is reflected in the advanced features and functionality that make our application mobile, interoperable with multiple standard and proprietary information sources and responsive with programmable rules. We are confident that Defense ID will provide an unprecedented level of situational awareness and security driven by real-time ID document authentication and threat identification.”

Using Defense ID, security officers can increase situational awareness and security at restricted facilities by instantly authenticating the identification of visitors, vendors, and employees seeking site access and by implementing rules-based access decision support, as well as improving operational efficiencies.

The field-tested access control solution enables security personnel to maintain uninterrupted line of sight of an individual seeking site access by using a mobile device to scan the barcode of driver licenses from all U.S. states and Canadian provinces, as well as military and other government-issued identification documents.

Defense ID notifies security officers of a potential threat by comparing a visitor’s identification card information with data contained on public and government databases and other information stored on Intellicheck’s extensive proprietary databases.

Real-time information delivery instantly alerts security if the person has presented identification that is fake or stolen, is on a terrorist watch list, Be-On-the-Look-Out (BOLO) lists, may be the subject of law enforcement wants and warrants, or is listed for military base debarments and driving suspensions.

In addition, Defense ID’s advanced rules-based engine can be configured to authorize visitation only at certain pre-designated days and times to specific areas of a site.

Durable handheld mobile devices assure facility security personnel complete flexibility for patrol and special event requirements.
