NEC gets Frost & Sullivan customer value leadership award

Frost & Sullivan has recognized NEC with the 2014 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership for its facial recognition systems.

“NEC’s NeoFace suite of products offers a high degree of irrefutability and the flexibility to be applied to a number of compelling use cases, making it ideal to address the need for strong authentication, as well as identification,” Frost & Sullivan Industry Principal Frank Dickson said. “Demonstrated by NeoFace Reveal’s success in identification, NEC’s face-matching algorithms ensure accuracy and selectivity, regardless of database size and image quality. Additionally, the use of facial recognition biometrics removes the need for one-time password devices that are often required for strong authentication.”

According to the company, NeoFace has been validated by NIST, with tests ranging from one-to-one verification to large-scale, high-volume identification matching. NEC’s facial recognition technology was ranked number-one in the Biometric Grand Challenge’s “Still Face Challenge,” carried out by NIST and commissioned by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2009.

“Overall, with a pragmatic product roadmap, Frost & Sullivan expects NEC to make facial recognition biometrics a market reality in mainstream commercial applications for authentication and in government applications for identification,” Dickson said

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to a company that has implemented strategies that create value for customers, with a remaining focus on ROI.

In November 2013, Cognitec Systems took home the European Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership, for its flagship facial recognition product, FaceVACS-Video Scan.

Reported previously, NEC recently launched two new biometrics-based solutions for the hospitality industry. One, a facial recognition system to recognize VIP guests. The other, a facial recognition system to anonymously capture visitor attributes.
