Iris ID to provide contactless biometric readers to Securiport

SecuriportpIris ID, an iris recognition technology provider, has agreed to provide Securiport, an airport security and border management technology provider, with its contactless IrisAccess biometric readers

Securiport’s automated kiosks and gates authenticate people’s identities at airports, seaports, border crossings and other critical locations.

Adding biometric technology from Iris ID to Securiport stations enhances traveler convenience and safety, while also helping authorities prevent criminals from crossing undetected borders and uncovering illegal transnational activities, said CEO and Securiport president, Enrique Segura.

“Terrorists and other illegal travellers are increasingly using fraudulent travel documents at points of entry,” he said. “The Iris ID technology, with its reputation for speed and accuracy in verifying a person’s identity, is a valuable addition to our proven, proprietary solutions that deliver a more secure travel environment.”

Securiport solutions equipped with Iris ID technology will also contribute to international efforts to control the current coronavirus pandemic, said Iris ID vice-president, global sales and business development, Mohammed Murad.

Securiport’s solutions also include proprietary Epidemic Control System software to identify and control possible carriers of viruses such as COVID-19 and Ebola,” he said.

“Without contributing to the spread of pathogens, our contactless technology can authenticate the identities of people carrying digital health certification. In addition, our readers are effective when people wearing personal protective equipment like gloves, masks, and goggles are used. We are seeing a huge increase in worldwide demand for non-contact and frictionless biometric applications,” he added.
