Test Results Place ID Solutions in Top Tier Alongside AFIS Industry Giants
ORLANDO, Fla., ID Solutions, a fingerprint
technology company with expertise in large scale biometric projects, is proud
to announce the results of thorough testing of its technology by the U.S.
Government. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), within
the U.S. Department of Commerce, is responsible for biometric technology
evaluation for all application within the Department of Homeland Security,
such as US-VISIT for visitor entry and exit and other programs authorized
under the U.S. PATRIOT Act. In 2003, NIST established an ongoing SDK
Evaluation program where vendors can submit their technology for testing under
standardized conditions against a very broad and challenging range of
fingerprint databases. This program represents the "gold standard" in
fingerprint accuracy testing.
Since NIST first published the results of this program in June, 2004, the
top tier has been dominated by three multi-billion-dollar, multi-national
companies, i.e., Cogent (U.S.), Sagem (France), and NEC (Japan). ID Solutions
was pleased to learn that its accuracy scores place it solidly within this top
tier. With test results tightly clustered within this elite group, ID
Solutions has earned its position among the industry leaders. Additionally,
ID Solutions speed benchmark was between 38% and 888% faster than the
established industry leaders.
Describing the importance of this challenging evaluation, ID Solutions'
President Dr. John Schmitt stated "This is a critical validation of our
technology and a nexus in the development of our business. We are truly
grateful to NIST for the invaluable service they are providing our industry
and our nation."
