DAP Technologies and Identica Partner to Secure the Nation's High Security Areas

Handheld Computers Will Allow Instant Enrollment and Mobile Security Checks

TAMPA, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 04/28/09 -- Identica Holdings Corporation, the premier provider of end-to-end Hand Vascular Pattern Recognition (HVPR) biometric security solutions, today announced its partnership with DAP Technologies, provider of rugged, highly customizable mobile computing solutions for challenging environments, to develop a wireless handheld solution for the instant enrollment into an existing biometric security system, and to allow security personnel the freedom to conduct random credential checks anywhere in a secure facility.

These new rugged handheld units will incorporate state-of-the-art identity management software for a complete end-to-end solution for first-response situations and high-security areas.

"Identica has proven itself as the leader in innovative security solutions. Partnering with them to develop these units was a natural fit," said Len Schalkwyk, vice president at DAP Technologies. "We are working to produce a mobile security solution that will reduce the risk of unauthorized entrances in highly sensitive areas."

Identica's Mobile Identity Manager software, formerly Enterprise Air, will allow DAP's rugged handheld computers to interface with most PAC systems to retrieve the data that ensures an ID-holder is enrolled into the system. The computers would be deployable in such high-security areas as seaports, airports and government facilities, where the need to quickly identify personnel and verify their credentials is crucial.

"The solution developed with DAP will combine the premier handheld solution with next-generation biometric technology to provide the industry with the best of both worlds, while complementing Identica's existing product set of fixed readers and identity management products," said Terry Wheeler, president of Identica. "DAP Technologies' experience in engineering rugged, lightweight computers allows us to expand our product base into places and markets that were not available previously."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
