Morocco selects biometric border control solution by Veridos

 

The General Directorate for National Security (DGSN) for the Kingdom of Morocco has selected Veridos to design and implement a national border control system for all ports of entry, including the entire IT infrastructure necessary for the project.

Veridos will provide stationary equipment for fixed border posts and mobile systems for border control at land, sea and airports. The solution is based on the Veridos verification platform VeriGO, which enables the integration of pre-existing infrastructures and databases. Passports and travel documents will be authenticated using VISOTEC Expert 600 passport readers and VISOCORE Inspect devices. The company is also providing automated border control (ABC) eGates and more than 140 Veridos mobile border control kits that include a laptop and a DERMALOG fingerprint scanner for primary inspections in flexible environments.

Face biometrics and fingerprints can be captured by the system managing the entry and exit date making it relatively simple to check for visa violations or expiry, generate reports, and perform statistical analysis.

“With several stationary border control sites, about 1,600 border control work stations, the set-up of a central site, a disaster recovery site and regional servers, this project is a perfect example of what Veridos’ complete solution portfolio has to offer,” commented Labinot Carreti, Senior Vice President Sales at Veridos. “Our expertise as the implementer of the new ICAO PKD system also means that we can provide ICAO PKD integration support to Morocco.”
