MaxID, a leading provider of identity solutions and CoreStreet, an ActivIdentity subsidiary and a leader in credential validation solutions, today announced the sale of iDL500 Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) accredited handheld biometric reader devices to the Gloucester Massachusetts Police Department.
“We are excited about advancing the tools and technology for our officers in the field,” said Lt Joe Aiello of the Gloucester Police who oversees the day-to-day operations and management of the department. “The MaxID/CoreStreet combination provides a very powerful, yet portable way of verifying identity – Driver’s Licenses, Passports, TWIC/PIV credentials as well as Seafarer ID cards.”
The iDL500 units delivered to the Gloucester Police Department will be bundled with the CoreStreet PIVMAN client software, which provides a TWIC-compatible solution that has been in operational use for more than three years in the DoD, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), various states, and is on the FIPS 201 Approved Products List and the TWIC Initial Capabilities Evaluation (ICE) List.
“Momentum continues in the maritime and law enforcement markets for deployment of identity verification/validation tools to address the TWIC enforcement requirements. The iDL500 when combined with the PIVMAN software resonates well to law enforcement agencies looking to equip their personnel with a very powerful, wirelessly connected handheld biometric device to support their field operations. The CoreStreet/MaxID combined solution seems to be gaining significant traction in these markets." said Brian Skiba, President of MaxID Corp US.
“Augmenting day to day operations, the PIVMAN Solution provides law enforcement with an ability to read and verify highly trusted Identity Credentials. Typically issued by Federal and State Agencies for identity verification and to display their training and skill sets in emergency operations.” said John Bys Regional Vice President at ActivIdentity. Combining ActivIdentity PIVMAN Software with the IDLMax platform enables Gloucester Law Enforcement to verify and authenticate highly trusted Identity Credentials such as PIV, CAC, FRAC, Seafarer ID, and TWIC cards on a single device even in communications-out situations.”
The iDL500is a multi-modal, rugged mobile computer that offers a complete set of features -- including QWERTY keyboard, contact card, contactless card, barcode, optical fingerprint, and optional magnetic swipe and MRZ readers with a digital camera, GPS, and comprehensive communications capabilities. The iDL500 is a complete, integrated mobile solution for all badging and identity management requirements.
