Vision-Box® at the Forefront of Discussions on Expedited Travel and Border Management in the USA

U.S. Government officials and industry experts gathered together under one roof to discuss the growing challenges associated with securing human identity during the conference Connect ID, which took place in Washington last week. One of the hot topics under discussion was Aviation Security and the balance between the facilitation of legitimate travel and tight border control.

As one of the leading industry specialists, Vision-Box® contributed to the debate with their wide experience of over 400 Automated Border Control solutions implemented worldwide and provided some answers with regard to the growing need for effective identification and verification solutions. “Not only robust ABC solutions at each country’s entry/exit point are important, but a powerful IT platform ensuring a Unified Architecture and integrating Identity Management, Security and Border Control solutions is crucial to consolidate all dimensions and the dataflow management of an entry/exit process. This will permit a nationwide view of migration flows, anticipating peaks, associated measures and building the foundations of a solid predictive model,” explains Jean-François Lennon, Director of Global Business Development, Sales & Marketing at Vision-Box®, in a fishbowl session with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Finish Border Guard.

The company sets a very special focus on the passenger experience - seamless journeys, decreased congestion, reduced waiting times and a unique technological experience. However, this approach will include and benefit all airport stakeholders: while Governments and Border Control Authorities will confirm an improvement of the security at borders and an optimization of processes and resources, Airports and Airlines will offer more innovative services, reduced queues, increased on-time departures and happier passengers!

In this scenario, data sharing is no longer an issue. In fact, the Vision-Box®-developed platform, the vb i-shield®, was based on the “Privacy by Design” concept, for a sustainable Data Sharing model to sustain each parties’ needs and strategic, business and legal objectives and constraints.
