November 30, 2015 – Washington, D.C. – Securiport, a global leader in passenger biometric recognition, immigration processing, and intelligent information management and reporting systems, is pleased to announce it was just named winner for best biometric identification system for border security in the 2015 Homeland Security Awards, held by Government Security News (GSN) Magazine in its 7th annual award event.
The GSN annual Homeland Security Awards Program is organized to honor the distinguished vendors of IT and physical security products and solutions and the dedicated federal, state, county and municipal government agencies, whose combined efforts keep our nation secure.
The homeland security field has been the scene of an unprecedented proliferation of brilliant security technologies in IT and physical security, including a dramatic convergence of technologies between the two fields. Working in tandem with technology vendors, government agencies at all levels have introduced increasingly effective strategies for dealing with threats to our security, whether domestic or foreign in origin. The Government Security News Awards will be presented on December 8, 2015, in Washington, DC.
Securiport’s Civil Aviation and Immigration Security Services offer governments worldwide a comprehensive suite of security products that effectively perform the biometric recognition of travelers at immigration posts and provide a proprietary intelligent information management and profiling system for the identification and control of potential security risks, criminal activity, and health threats, based on the comparison and analysis of biometric data and traveler information collected during immigration processing.
Securiport’s biometric identification systems for border security make use of the most advanced technologies for the biometric recognition of people and the identification of possible security threats, including links to the most globally reliable watch lists and security databases such as Interpol’s.
- Automated Fingerprint Identification System. Biometric fingerprint checks can quickly identify wanted individuals by comparing a scanned fingerprint against known records in local and international watch-lists. Scanned fingerprints are then stored in an immigration database for reference in future immigration processing.
- Multi-Modal Biometric Recognition System which incorporates a combination of fingerprint, iris, and face recognition analyses to uncover false and double identity cases in real time.
“The Homeland Security award for Best Biometric Identification System for Border Security from Government Security News for physical security products and solutions serves as third-party validation of the need for deploying biometric identification systems for border safety to mitigate imminent security threats globally and right now,” said Dr. Enrique Segura, President & Chief Executive Officer of Securiport. “We are honored to have won this award, and given the recent cross-border terrorism events around the world in Europe, Africa and elsewhere, Securiport is ready to provide the right biometric solution to solve today’s most pressing security needs.”
As terrorism events unfold in Europe, Securiport has recently presented Frontex, the European Border Management Agency, with innovative high-tech security solutions for managing the critical migrant crisis, combating terrorism, and enhancing border security. Frontex liaises closely with other European Union partners involved in issues concerning freedom, security and justice such as Europol, EASO, Eurojust, FRA or CEPOL, as well as with customs authorities to promote overall cohesion. Frontex also works closely with the border-control authorities of non-EU/Schengen countries.
