CardLogix, supplier of smart cards and software for the creation of Identity Credentials, has integrated biometric enrolment stations and software from Corvus Integration as a key part of its identity management platform. This platform utilises smart cards and biometrics to enroll personnel, process their biographic and biometric data, and issue a trusted Identity Credential. With this credential, government and business can identify, manage, and protect people.

Identity Management: A Growing Need
Smart card and Biometric capture technologies address a worldwide, unprecedented need for securing identity as government and business strive to identify and protect personnel. In addition, a trusted Identity Credential allows secure access to data and facilities, effective management of services, and the securing of dynamic areas, such as combat zones and crime scenes. According to Global Industry Analysts, Inc., (GIA) this need will drive the worldwide biometrics industry to over $16 billion in revenue by the year 2017.
"This partnership responds to the growing worldwide need for irrefutable identity management" says Bruce Ross, CEO of CardLogix. Business and governments are rapidly responding to identity theft, terrorism, and the need to better manage services, with verifiable identity as the most fundamental starting point. Biometrics and smart cards are commonplace throughout the world, and are now advanced enough and at a price point to be practical in many emerging applications." Ross added that the full range of products can be found at the CardLogix website and worldwide through representatives who provide integration expertise.
