BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MorphoTrust USA (Safran), a leading provider of identity services and solutions, and trusted partner of federal, state and local government agencies, today announced that it has achieved SAFETY Act certification on its Universal Enrollment Services (UES) and Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) platforms. The certification acknowledges these technologies are effective anti-terrorism tools. Achieving the certification on the UES platform makes MorphoTrust one of the only organizations in the U.S. with an identity enrollment services technology that is SAFETY Act-certified.
The UES platform facilitates the collection of biometric and biographic information of individuals for enrollment in various federal programs, as well as the secure transmission of that information to the contracting agency for review and adjudication, which may include comparison against law enforcement databases. Currently, MorphoTrust is the authorized service provider for enrollment into the popular TSA Pre✓® program as well as the Hazardous Materials Endorsement (HME) and Transportation Worker Identity Credential (TWIC) programs under its UES contract. The UES platform is currently in use at more than 360 IdentoGO® Centers by MorphoTrust across the country where enrollments in TSA Pre✓®, HME and TWIC are available, including more than 40 airport locations. To enroll in TSA Pre✓®, visit the enrollment page on identogo.com or visit tsa.gov.
The ABIS platform allows MorphoTrust’s government customers to search, process, compare and manage identity data of enrolled individuals. ABIS users can search for individual identities by a variety of biometric modalities, ranging from face to iris to fingerprint, in one-to-one or one-to-many identity checks. ABIS is used by a number of government agencies to verify identities in situations critical to national security.
“Our government customers have come to expect the most secure, highest quality identity verification tools from our organization over the long-standing relationships we’ve established with them,” said Bob Eckel, CEO of MorphoTrust USA. “The SAFETY Act certifications are additional proof points of our commitment to helping those customers achieve their missions and uphold the safety and security of the American people.”
