Vision-Box has officially become an Associate Member of the Secure Identity Alliance. The airport biometrics specialist will lend its expertise to the SIA’s eBorders Workgroup, where it will leverage its experience as a provider of biometric passenger control technology to 80 airports around the globe.
“With secure eBorders a major issue for governments across the world, Vision-Box’s position as one of the industry’s leading digital solution providers will further boost our advisory capacity within the Workgroup,” said SIA Chairman Frédéric Trojani.
“We look forward to working closely with other market leaders to promote best practices and ethical solutions, and to help guide the development of digital identity frameworks across the world,” added Vision-Box CEO Miguel Leitmann.
As a member of the Alliance, Vision-Box will also work to promote ethical best practices for the use of biometric technology, both at the border and in other situations. The goal is to pioneer new ways to help people establish and utilize secure personal identities.
Marketing and Sales VP Jean-François Lennon will serve as Vision-Box’s representative to the SIA. In the past few months, the company has introduced biometric eGates at airports in Amsterdam and Bahrain, and recently opened a new office in Japan in anticipation of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
