CITI profiles manageID biometric credential software
Creative Information Technology, Inc. (CITI) recently profiled manageID, its family of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) identity management and credentialing software products at the 2012 Biometrics Consortium Conference in Tampa.
manageID supports a variety of commercial technologies including multiple biometrics (face, finger, iris, signature, etc.) as well as ID storage and credential technologies (magnetic stripe, barcode, RFID / smart chip, etc.). manageID maintains vendor and technology neutrality in order to protect customers against technology obsolescence and or system change outs.
manageID is currently deployed at multiple high-profile international and federal and state government agencies throughout the United States as their reference identity system. manageID is available to customers and partners through a variety of licensing and SaaS/cloud-based business models.
The manageID framework and optional suite of software applications delivers enterprise performance via configurable, scalable and extensible services-oriented solutions.
manageID also provides identity, credential and permission lifecycle management for private and public sector markets such as immigration and travel, voter registration, national ID/driver licensing, border management, law enforcement, badging and loyalty programs.
manageID utilizes a dynamic user interface and identity program templates which allows customers to quickly change the appearance and topology of manageID’s workflows, screens and database structure to meet evolving business process and policy needs. CITI’s patent-pending manageID Synchronization Engine™ technology ensures that all data, workflows, configurations and user settings are properly synchronized across all n-Tier servers and clients. As a result, manageID delivers a faster return on investment (ROI) by reducing development and deployment cost, risk and implementation time.
“CITI realized a gap existed in the market for a COTS identity solution and we have successfully culminated all of our large scale identity program experience and CMMI level 3 certification into a modular approach that leverages both pre-built templates and optimized components,” comments Dr. Sunil Kolhekar, President and CEO of CITI.
CITI leveraged its extensive experience and lessons-learned from designing, delivering, managing and supporting one of the world’s largest identity management and credentialing systems that registers more than 45,000 multi-biometric based records per month from locations around the world into a 35TB+ database for the US government, producing more than US$1 billion in application fees annually.
The software is also an identity management and credentialing solution in Latin America for a national trusted traveler program, a national visitor and migrant worker management program, a national deportation program and a national criminal identity system. In the U.S., the manageID cloud service is used to register citizens for delivering state issued credentials. Another multi-national agency uses the manageID to issue badges to staff and contractors.
