INTERPOL, Morpho sign strategic partnership


Through a fresh partnership agreement, Morpho will provide INTERPOL with a range of biometric solutions and other technical support.

Specifically, the five-year partnership covers the supply of automated biometric identification systems to INTERPOL, the provision of security solutions for the future INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation, as well as collaboration on border security. Morpho will also be supplying its facial recognition technology.

According to Safran, both Morpho and INTERPOL will also collaborate on developing global standards and best practices to improve border efficiency and security with biometrics.

“As criminals employ ever more sophisticated ways to avoid detection, so too must law enforcement benefit from the latest advances in technology, especially in biometrics, to more effectively combat all forms of transnational crime,” INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald Noble said.

“This is particularly true at borders, when officials have just moments to decide whether to allow a person into their country or not. It is vital that they have all the necessary tools at their fingertips to enable them to check whether this person is wanted internationally or have tried to conceal their identity,” Noble said.

Morpho has previously provided INTERPOL with its AFIS, and under this new partnership, will update the system.

“This new partnership is a continuation of our decade-long effort to support INTERPOL in its fight against transborder crime through delivery of advanced biometric solutions,” Morpho CEO Philippe Petitcolin said.

“With our technological leadership and experience in the field, we are well positioned to provide INTERPOL and its member states with valuable input on the subject of border security,” Petitcolin said.

Reported previously, Morpho recently achieved Common Criteria certification for fingerprint spoof detection in a biometric device. Specifically, its MorphoSmart Optic 301 fingerprint reader received the certification.
