RISHON LEZION, Israel, April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
FST Biometrics, the leading biometric identification solutions provider, today announced a strategic partnership with Groupo Haganá, Brazil's foremost provider of residential and facility security systems and personnel. As a key component of the partnership, FST will develop and produce SIGAH Mobile and SIGAH Fixed - both based on FST's award-winning In Motion Identification (IMID) technology - to enhance the operating level of Haganá's security infrastructure.
With an initial deployment to Haganá customers in São Paulo - Brazil's most populous city as well as the largest in the Americas - SIGAH Fix and SIGAH Mobile will supplement the important work of security personnel at critical resident access points.
"FST's biometric identification solutions deliver vital tools to increase the level of security we provide to our customers, without slowing the speed of operations," said Villi Braverman, Ombudsman of Groupo Haganá. "FST technology helps us address the specific security requirements of our customers while adding tremendous value. This incredibly accurate and empowering solution offers an exceptional user experience."
SIGAH Mobile - a smartphone application that identifies authorized users - is modeled after IMID Mobile, the latest product offering by FST Biometrics. Security personnel identify authorized users - and are alerted to unauthorized individuals seeking entry - on the guard's personal mobile device, providing a seamless, secure access experience.
To combat the threat at parking facility entry points, the SIGAH Mobile solution enables security personnel's smartphones to act as mobile identification devices. Supplementing guards' existing knowledge and memory, drivers and passengers entering a Haganá-controlled garage are accurately verified by SIGAH Mobile without the need to exit the vehicle.
"The implementation of FST Biometrics' newly-released IMID Mobile solution with Haganá Security demonstrates a key application of our secure access capabilities," said Arie Melamed Yekel, CMO of FST Biometrics. "Due to the adaption of IMID Access technology in a challenging security climate, Brazilians are more secure without having to sacrifice comfort."
FST IMID Access technology will also be deployed at pedestrian entry points, under the brand name of SIGAH Fixed. Residents and authorized visitors seeking access are seamlessly identified by the non-invasive and highly accurate in motion identification access solution.
Haganá plans to implement the FST Biometrics IMID technology in hundreds of facilities it serves throughout Brazil.
