Securiport’s biometric ID solution wins GSN Airport Seaport Border Security Award

July 5, 2016 - 

Securiport has received the award for ‘Best Biometric Identification/Authentication Solution’ from the Government Security News (GSN) Airport Seaport Border Security Awards Program.

Now in its seventh year, the 2016 program honors the top leaders in new technologies and innovative security strategies.

Securiport’s Integrated Immigration Control System (IICS) features several subsystems that provide optimal security and control, including advanced multimodal biometric identification, intelligent data analysis, training, data security, and real-time checks against Interpol databases to help identify persons of interest.

Using IICS, authorities can create and maintain wanted-persons records, such as demographic and biometric features.

Data can be imported from any government database, and real-time identification checks are performed on every passenger.

The Securiport system then notifies immigration and security officials on potential watch-list matches by issuing a concealed alarm.

“Our mission at Securiport is to develop innovative solutions that will help aviation security authorities and border management agencies to leverage the latest safety technologies to secure borders,” said Securiport’s COO Dr. Atilla Freska. “To be recognized as a cutting edge leader in a highly-regarded industry publication like GSN is a true honor.”

In addition, Securiport won for the best biometric identification system for border security in the 2015 Homeland Security Awards, specifically for their automated, multimodal, biometric recognition fingerprint identification.
