This morning, Cross Match Technologies announced that its biometric identity management solutions are now available through the UK’s G-Cloud CloudStore. The select products available have applications in law enforcement, mobile ID and border control.
The move is in support of the UK government’s initiative to bring IT all across the public sector, changing the way that technology is bought and used by police, government agencies and the military.
In March of this year, Cross Match opened a new sales office in the Unite Kingdom. It houses regional sales, business development and sales engineering staff and signaled further commitment to the market. Today’s news is yet another signal that the company is strongly focused on the UK public sector.
As a part of the G-Cloud catalog, Cross Match’s solutions are open to all public sector clients. The company’s proprietary software, livescan and mobile hardware all benefit from a streamlined sales platform.
Eric Vermillion, Cross Match’s senior vice president of sales, comments: “Our pedigree is in delivering mission critical solutions that support programmes aimed at helping safeguard society. We have a long history of serving UK law enforcement, the Home Office and the Ministry of Defense with their identity management needs.”
The range of Cross Match products available through G-Cloud include the WEBS cloud-based identity management software, Mission Oriented Biometric Software (MOBS) for multi-biometric handhelds, Guardian and Patrol ten-print fingerprint scanners, 500P and 1000PX palm scanners, Verifier Mw single finger identification handheld, SEEK Avenger multi-biometric handheld, and the company’s Authenticator secure credential reader.
With these products now benefiting from increased public sector accessibility, clients will find it more feasible to add a strong authentication edge to operations. Criminal bookings, background checks, border control ID checks, identity document registry and large scale fraud prevention are all a little bit closer with this increased availability.
