|Intellicheck Mobilisa was awarded a contract for expanded deployment of Defense ID
Intellicheck Mobilisa, a provider of threat identification and identity authentication, verification and validation technology solutions, announced it has been awarded a federal contract to expand the deployment of Defense ID® at a highly classified federal government facility in the Washington, D.C. area. The $250,000 purchase will increase the ability of security personnel to protect the highly sensitive federal installation with Intellicheck's real-time identification authentication solution.
Dr. William Roof, Intellicheck CEO, noted, "The world is a very different place than it was only a few short years ago as threats of violence to our citizens at home and abroad continue to escalate in frequency, complexity and effectiveness. Defense ID was designed to address a security environment that is fluid and constantly evolving. Our expertise in addressing security challenges is reflected in the advanced features and functionality that make our application mobile, interoperable with multiple standard and proprietary information sources and responsive with programmable rules. We are confident that Defense ID will provide an unprecedented level of situational awareness and security driven by real-time ID document authentication and threat identification."
Increasing situational awareness
Security personnel use Defense ID to increase situational awareness and security at restricted facilities by instantly authenticating the identification of visitors, vendors, and employees seeking site access and by enabling rules-based access decision support, while improving operational efficiencies. Deployment of the field-tested and proven advanced technology solution provides security personnel with the ability to maintain uninterrupted line of sight of an individual seeking site access as mobile devices scan the bar code of driver licenses from all U.S. states and Canadian Provinces, as well as military and other identification documents issued by government agencies. Defense ID alerts security officers of a potential threat by comparing a would-be visitor's identification card information with information available from public and government data sources and other pertinent information contained in Intellicheck's extensive proprietary databases. Real-time information delivery instantly notifies security personnel if the individual has presented identification that is fake or stolen, is on a terrorist watch list, Be-On-the-Look-Out (BOLO) lists, may be the subject of law enforcement wants and warrants, or is listed for military base debarments and driving suspensions.
"The Defense ID will provide an unprecedented level of situational awareness and security driven by real-time ID document authentication and threat identification."
In addition to its other computer-based applications, Defense ID's advanced rules-based engine can be set to allow visitation only at certain pre-designated days and times to specific parts of a site. Durable handheld mobile devices assure facility security personnel maximum flexibility for patrol and special event requirements.
Value and flexibility
"At a time when international terrorism and civil unrest present unprecedented challenges, this contract award underscores the value and flexibility of Defense ID in protecting critical facilities and the people who conduct business at these facilities. We expect our military-grade security technology solution to see increasing adoption beyond the 24 military and federal installations and 16 U.S. ports where it is already deployed," said Dr. Roof.
