Princeton Identity opens Dubai office, provides biometric security solution for DXB
Princeton Identity’s Access500e identity management kiosk module has been deployed within the Dubai International Airport (DXB). According to the company announcement, the solution identifies travelers within one to two seconds.
One hundred Access500e products are currently in operation across the airport’s Emirates Airlines terminals, with plans to deploy about 40 more in the near future to support the influx of new international tourists. Dubai is expected to surpass 20 million visitors by 2020.
The Access500e features a face and iris biometric capture device designed for integration into a variety of application solutions. At Dubai International, it is integrated into a new Smart Gate, commonly referred to as the “Eyen” gate system, which captures biometric signatures, eliminating the need for visitors to check in with a customs agent and saving time for passengers and airport staff. Princeton Identity partnered with the tech company Emaratech in fostering the implementation of Access500e into the terminals at DBX.
“Princeton Identity and the Dubai International Airport share a goal of simplifying and speeding access to keep people and business moving, and the Access500e deployment at the DXB marks a new standard in passenger security,” said Mark Clifton, chief executive officer at Princeton Identity. “Iris recognition is most reliable form of biometric identification, and the Access500e turns what used to be a slow process for travelers into a convenient, quick and more secure experience.”
Princeton Identity International recently opened an office in Dubai to ensure the continued success and expanded implementation at DXB. The office will also serve as the hub for Princeton Identity’s Middle Eastern and African regional offices. The company will use this new hub to further its work with organizations in the enterprise, healthcare, financial and government sectors in the Greater Middle Eastern region.
