The Daon solution will help prevent terrorism, illegal immigration and other crimes at the border
Fairfax, VA, February 28, 2014 – Daon, a leading provider of identity assurance and identification and verification software worldwide today announced the company has been awarded a contract to provide a multi-modal biometrically enabled identity system that utilizes Daon’s identity platform to protect one of the world’s largest global economies. The Daon solution will allow users to mix and match authentication factors of today (such as biometric fingerprint and facial recognition) and emerging technology of tomorrow.
“All over the world, companies are scrambling to build better biometrics. However, no single authentication factor will ever be suitable for every user, for every activity, for every situation,” said Daon Solutions Managing Director, Tony Murphy. “But what’s keeping the world from higher trust isn’t a better biometric factor; it’s a better platform for synchronizing, selecting, and combining of biometric and non-biometric factors we already have, and the ones we’ve yet to discover.”
Together with Daon partners, the company will be deploying a highly scalable, flexible and secure COTS-based solution. Client side applications will be independently developed using the Daon SDKs. Interoperability, vendor independence, proven performance and speed of deployment were integral to Daon’s value proposition. The system will “go-live” at over 30 locations across the country in the next six months.
Daon is a leading provider of identity assurance software products focused on meeting the needs of governments and commercial organizations worldwide. Daon products have been selected to secure hundreds of millions of identities around the globe including programs in the United States, Japan, India, Australia, New Zealand, the European Union and Mexico.
