Upstate S.C. Area Tech Innovator Calls for Biometrics Acceptance in the U.S.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Integrated Biometrics LLC, developers of the smallest, lightest, most reliable FBI-compliant fingerprint scanners in the world is urging the GOP Presidential Candidates Debating February 13 in nearby Greenville to lead the nation toward greater acceptance of technology solutions to border security problems. The company is issuing this call to action following Senator Ted Cruz’s remarks during a recent nationally televised debate in New Hampshire expressing his desire to implement a biometric tracking system as part of greater efforts to secure the U.S. border.

“We’re encouraged by Senator Cruz as well as all the candidates on both sides of the political fence who are showing the wherewithal to embrace our nation’s technology innovations as easy-to-implement, sensible solutions to complex problems like border security,” company VP David Gerulski said.

According to Gerulski, the concept of border security is easy for Americans to understand, and the idea of using fingerprint biometrics as a means to determine an immigrants true identity – and thus avoid allowing criminals and known terrorists from moving within our borders – is becoming more accepted as the issue makes its way into mainstream conversation.

“Biometric-enhanced travel ticketing and screening, sports stadium access protocols, and mobile phone fingerprint security controls are all ways that biometrics are advancing into the American consciousness,” Gerulski said, adding, “It’s encouraging to see our nation’s leaders use their soap box to forward the benefits of biometrics in border security while advocating continued innovation. It’s success stories like Integrated Biometrics, just one of our nation’s many global biometric businesses providing security and jobs all across our country.”

Identity management solutions help border security forces, law enforcement, and military to quickly and easily identify individuals they encounter in the field without the need for transport to command centers. For those passing through security checkpoints or immigration facilities, incredibly accurate and fast 10-print scanners can process individuals quickly, thus reducing both the inconvenience of verification and fear of mistaken identity often associated in the process.

Used around the globe in diverse environments, fingerprint biometric technology has been proven effective by trusted institutions as a preferred means of confirming identity and fighting fraud, especially at border crossings and in the field.

More ideal for mobile environments than traditional silicon or optical sensors, Integrated Biometrics FBI-certified fingerprint sensors use a patented light emitting sensor (LES) film, enabling them to work in direct sunlight on dry or moist fingers and resist abrasion. Integrated Biometrics offers the only Appendix F FBI-certified sensor that meets mobility requirements demanded by end users, solving the major problems of battery life, size, speed, accuracy and durability.
