A Complex, Interconnected World Needs Simple, Robust Security

Now, more than ever, our ports need the highest security available. Every year, the world’s 14,000+ airports manage nearly 75 million flights, carrying nearly 6 billion passengers and more than 91 million tons of cargo. Add to this the 55,000 merchant ships carrying eight billion tons of cargo and more than ten thousand ports of call weekly across a network of 960 ports worldwide and there are countless opportunities for a security breach. These critical transportation hubs employ millions of workers with millions more legally accessing secure areas at these locations, including contractors, visitors, crew members, truck drivers, and delivery staff. Identifying and vetting authorized individuals while simultaneously controlling their access within these vital facilities is the only way to ensure secure, efficient, and reliable global trade.

That’s a tall order.

Global economic stability relies on an efficient, cost effective, and secure transportation infrastructure that safeguards people and property while also providing for the free flow of trade. As security mechanisms become more sophisticated, so do the criminals attempting to breach them. While the problem may be complex and constantly evolving, it still comes down to a simple concept: permitting secure infrastructure access to only authorized individuals. In other words — identity. Who you are is the only constant in this equation. And verifying an individual’s identity is the most effective way to secure any port facility.

Imageware’s proven biometric identity management solutions were developed specifically for providing identity with the certainty that only biometrics can offer.
