Integrated Biometrics (IB), designer and manufacturer of high performance mobile biometric fingerprint sensors, has announced a technical partnership agreement with Securiport, a global leader in the design and implementation of civil aviation security, border management, advanced identification, and threat assessment systems.
IB has developed a line of lightweight, low-power, FBI-certified fingerprint sensors, widely deployed for border and immigration control, financial services, healthcare, voting, and law enforcement applications around the world. Available as both handheld mobile devices or integrated into fixed systems, IB scanners are now used in more than 40 countries.
“We’ve partnered with Integrated Biometrics because their scanners are the gold standard for fast, accurate, FBI-certified fingerprints,” said Sofiane Oumsalem, Test Manager in Quality Assurance, Securiport, in a statement. “As part of our advanced solutions, the IB product integration will be a strong addition to Securiport’s proprietary technology to combat modern threats including traveler identity fraud, human trafficking, transnational organized crime and money laundering, while improving the experience and safety of travelers and citizens,” said Leandro Olie, Chief Operating Officer, Securiport.
“We’re very enthused about our relationship with Securiport and about their plan to integrate our fingerprint scanners with their electronic gates, kiosks, mobile units, and identification services at more than 50 border points around the world,” added David Gerulski, EVP of Integrated Biometrics. “The fast and detailed image quality our scanners deliver – along with minimal maintenance requirements – makes IB the ideal choice for use at land, air, and maritime borders with high volume passenger flow and challenging environments.”
The Securiport engineering team has also developed a custom UI/UX platform. This platform combines the following technologies: fingerprint capture with advanced individual finger quality assessment and thresholds logic; biometric template progressive aggregation; partial finger validations with recurrent travelers; live feedback on-screen with universal instructions; live hand position and finger pressure for self-serve checkpoints.
