ISS and Captis Intelligence partner on biometric criminal identification
Intelligent Security Systems (ISS) has formed a strategic partnership with Captis Intelligence to deliver an automated face biometrics service to match forensic or surveillance images against a database of approximately 35 million criminal subjects.
The combined offering gives users access to open-source criminal records data while addressing biometric data privacy concerns, according to the company announcement. The facial recognition tool can enable an alert if a registered sex offender enters a school or a known terrorist arrives at a port of entry, the companies say.
“We are continually evaluating our offering to ensure our products and alliances are effectively addressing the needs of our customers,” comments Daniel Marino, COO of ISS. “The Captis database provide extra tools for customers without a built database, providing information that empowers security teams to quickly and accurately identify subjects that can represent a potential risk.”
ISS plans to continue working with Captis to develop technology to generate security intelligence immediately from data.
“Our alliance with ISS is rooted in innovation and a shared focus of solving today’s most pressing issues with face-matching technology” states Captis Vice President of Business Development Kirk Brown.
Captis also partnered with Milestone to provide on-demand subject identification with facial recognition earlier this year.
