Acuant and iDentyTech partner to boost physical security and authentication
Acuant has announced a partnership with iDentyTech[http://www.identytech.com/] to provide document validation for iDentyTech’s IDT physical access security platform.
The integration will enable efficient management of entry points into a property or facility, according to the announcement, with Acuant’s AssureID technology extracting biometric and other data from identity documents and applying more than 50 forensic document tests to authenticate them.
“Acuant’s partnership with iDentyTech allows our customers to use kiosks such as IDT Virtual Guard Tower for capturing identity documents and validating visitors on-site,” said Ephram Yeashoua, CEO of iDentytech. “With our Unified Management Platform, combining multi layers of automated identification technologies, a single guard can manage several entry points into a property or facility, ensuring only authorized people are allowed to enter. As a result, Security administrators can better secure their facilities with a great ROI whilst reducing criminal activity.”
Acuant recently published a whitepaper “Protecting Your Business & Establishing Trust: The Importance of Identity Verification and How Businesses Should Choose Solutions.”
As previously reported, Acuant acquired Mount Airey Group’s Ozone line of identity products last September to ease the use of public keys with applications.
