MIAMI, FL, October 19, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- "Going into the Identity Management solutions market is a natural progression for SSI," states Henry Morgenstern, President, "we have been training Federal, State and local agencies since 2003 and identity management has always been one of our main concerns. We have now found the right partner to utilize our know-how in Homeland Security so that together we can make a big impact on the $12 + billion dollar market for identity management and also make access safer for a host of government agencies at the Federal state and local levels along with hospitals and universities."
Teaming with SISCO corp., innovators of many of the systems employed today across a wide set of industries, SSI hopes to leverage the well-known SSI Homeland Security reputation and of course their media directed at the Homeland Security market (The Counter Terrorist magazine, e-newsletters and web properties) to let their customers know about the new product lines. SSI has trained more than 1000 Federal, State and local agencies since 2003.
For example, GOV-PASS is the Security Identification Industry's only Visitor Management system that can thoroughly comply with Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 to verify the identity of individuals gaining access to government facilities.
As recent events prompt a need for greater security, the government sector has recognized visitor management as the front line in identifying, controlling and tracking individuals gaining access to official facilities.
Capable of reading data embedded into numerous forms of government-issued identification cards (PIV, CAC, FRAC, TWIC, etc.) Government Identity management system confirms that the card presented is FIPS compliant (Federal Information Processing Standard.) The cardholder enters a PIN # which opens up data from the card's smart chip including an embedded photo of the cardholder for a visual match. Further verification of the visitor's identity is done by utilization of a fingerprint reader.
From there, all data collected is sent to a Server-based Certificate Validation Protocol (SCVP) for final verification and to confirm that the individual's vetting and access privileges are still valid and that credentials have not been revoked. Further, the system integrates the results of this exercise directly into the facility's access control system so the card has specific rights and restrictions within the facility. The SSI SISCO partnership will be hardware agnostic and can provide full solutions utilizing your existing infrastructure.
