Exhibits will include NEC’s market leading biometric solutions, including a contactless hybrid finger scanner
NEC Corporation announced recently that it is showcasing its latest range of physical and cyber security solutions for a wide range of enterprise and government applications at the International Security and National Resilience 2014 (ISNR) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on 1-3 April 2014.
Exhibits will include NEC’s market leading biometric solutions, including a contactless hybrid finger scanner that simultaneously assesses a citizen’s fingerprint and finger vein to provide the highest possible level of recognition accuracy and prevent identity fraud. NEC’s biometrics technologies have been used in more than 40 countries worldwide in a broad range of applications including border control, national voter registration, national ID and criminal investigation systems.
During the show, NEC will also demonstrate its NeoFace Watch facial recognition system which helps law enforcement agencies provide an enhanced CCTV surveillance service. The solution matches security camera images in real-time against a watch list database of individuals suspected of presenting a criminal or public safety threat, in addition to missing persons.
NEC will also highlight its cybersecurity and counterintelligence services. This includes the introduction of “Cyber Range”, a comprehensive platform for training, testing and validating large-scale IT and network security systems. It enables governments and enterprises to simulate cyber-attacks against their systems in a secure and virtualised environment in order to develop effective strategies and countermeasures for protecting their intellectual property and customer data from cyber-attacks and preventing fraudulent activity which can cause significant public, financial and reputational damage.
Noboru Takahashi, President & CEO at NEC Saudi Arabia Ltd, said “NEC is an end-to-end provider of advanced security systems on a global basis. We offer a combination of market leading biometric technologies, specialist expertise in large-scale cloud computing, big data and IT system integration projects in addition to advanced cybersecurity monitoring and audit capabilities. This puts us in a unique position to help private and public organisations create a safer society.”
