Securiport Named Winner for Best Biometric Identification System for Border Security in 2015 Homeland Security Awards

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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, EASOEurojustFRA 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.

Dr. Attila Freska Joins “Border Security” Panel Discussion at AVSEC World Conference

November 13, 2015 – Washington, D.C. – More than just a track sponsor, Securiport is proud to play an active role in the 24th Annual AVSEC World Conference by contributing to the Border Security discussion panel.

During Day 2 of the conference, Securiport COO, Dr. Attila Freska shared his views on the implications of migration/refugees on border control units. The challenge remains, “Do Governments have the recourse to effectively manage ‘normal’ operations, while simultaneously dealing with large influxes of people?”

The panel for the specialized border security track was made up of Dr. Freska, Danielle Sharp–Border Security Manager at Gatwick Airport, and Johann Wagner–Senior Border Expert at United Nations Counter-Terrorism Centre (UNCCT). The panel agreed that technology is an essential part of facilitating passenger processing while dealing with stringent budget restrictions. As the group addressed the growth airports will continue to experience while governments continue to cut funds, Dr. Freska remarked, “We must be pragmatic and look at what tools we have available to supplement the human interaction necessary to secure borders.”

As the discussion came to a close, the panel addressed how the private sector can assist the current refugee crisis. “We must ensure that alternative solutions are available for nations that lack the financial resources or infrastructure to secure borders and increase global security.” Representatives from Securiport will proudly support INTERPOL for the 3rd consecutive year at the annual General Assembly taking place this November in Kigali, Rwanda.
