Palm Beach Gardens, Florida – September 16, 2014 – Crossmatch Technologies, a leading global provider of biometric identity management solutions, announced today the launch of its Verifier® Sentry handheld solution designed to authenticate the identity of an individual using their secure credentials and biometrics.
This makes the new handheld uniquely suited for law enforcement, border control and immigration officers that require mobility and autonomous operational capabilities,The Android-based Verifier Sentry rapidly reads credential documents with embedded biometric data and verifies the credential holder’s ID by matching the biometric to a live scan of their fingerprint. Alternatively, the Verifier Sentry can transmit an unknown subject’s fingerprint to an AFIS for remote processing. “This makes the new handheld uniquely suited for law enforcement, border control and immigration officers that require mobility and autonomous operational capabilities,” noted Eric Vermillion, senior vice president of sales for Crossmatch .
The Verifier Sentry incorporates a FAP 30 rated single finger sensor as recommended in the March 2014 National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Industry Report 7950 and meets PIV-071006 certification requirements. The handheld also provides the ability to capture PIV-specified pictures for facial recognition.
Credentials supported by the Verifier Sentry include federal ID cards such as PIV, CAC and TWIC, ICAO 9303 standard ePassports, as well as numerous state, local and national IDs. Essentially, the Verifier Sentry can be configured to read any contact or contactless smart card chip and decode numerous security protocols, including MRZ, PDF 417 and other barcodes.
Offered with Verifier Sentry is Commander™, a mobile device management tool that provides the secure communications tunnel to the handheld and remote matching databases, protecting data integrity and personal privacy. Match requests from multiple Verifier Sentry devices are aggregated by the centralized Commander application into a single secure connection with one or more matching databases. In addition, using Commander an administrator can locate, lock or even wipe Verifier Sentry devices in the field, as well as control who logs in and at what times. “It provides IT managers the ability to efficiently manage and configure deployed devices, as well as perform watchlist management tasks, all in a secure environment” noted Curt Chandler, product manager for handheld solutions at Cross Match.
