NIST ranks Sagem Securite 1st for biometric technologies

Sagem Securite : 12 June, 2009  (Company News)
Face, Iris and combined biometric recognition technologies from Sagem Securite and its subsidiary MorphoTrak gain 1st place in NIST ranking
The National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) has published the preliminary results of the Portal Challenge tests in its Multiple Biometric Grand Challenge (MBGC). Sagem Sécurité (SAFRAN Group) is ranked No 1 in face recognition, No 1 in iris recognition and No 1 in combined recognition for these two biometric technologies.

"I am very proud to have earned this recognition by NIST, acknowledged worldwide for the impartiality and quality of their tests," said Jean-Paul Jainsky, Chairman and CEO of Sagem Sécurité. "These results are the culmination of many years of research, and once again demonstrate our leadership and technological capabilities."

'As Sagem Sécurité's representative in North America, MorphoTrak is excited to make this top performing biometric technology available to the US and Canadian governments in securing their borders," stated Daniel Vassy, President and CEO of MorphoTrak.

The Portal Challenge tests concerned seven companies and five universities, under conditions typical of applications for border control and identity management. Sagem Sécurité is the only company to have reached this level of accuracy in all three types of biometric recognition: face, iris and a combination of the two. These results clearly bolster the company's leadership role in the personal and data security markets, and its technological advance in identity solutions.
