Veridos identity verification technology deployed at Munich Security Conference
Veridos reports it successfully deployed its VeriGO eAccess solution at the Munich Security Conference (MSC), a high-level conference that brings together key decision makers of the international security community. For this year’s event, Veridos created walk-through portals and software that verifies visitors’ identity by reading badges on-the-move.
With the VeriGO eAccess solution badge holders step through the portal and their identity is verified immediately using biometric face recognition technology.
The access cards, which are made of advanced material combined with security features, are produced by Giesecke+Devrient, Veridos’ parent company, and equipped with high-security chips. Verification of the badges can also be carried out using handheld RFID readers and smartphones, which then show the security personnel the provided picture of the participant for manual verification.
“We are delighted to have Veridos as a partner to provide us with this secure and convenient authentication solution for thousands of MSC 2019 participants,” said Dr. Benedikt Franke, COO of the MSC. “The verification times were significantly reduced and the traffic flow improved. We are looking forward to keeping using this technology in the future.”
Frank Schmalz, Director of Innovations at Veridos, added: “Our VeriGO eAccess solution is based on secure ultra-high frequency RFID. It allows only authorized devices to read high-security contactless chips from a short distance. The result is a state-of-the-art authentication technology that has now been successfully introduced at the MSC and that can be implemented in any situation that requires reliable access control.”
