Aware Provides Government Agencies and Consumers with Safe and Efficient Travel with World Class Digital Identity Authorization Solutions
BURLINGTON, MASS. – May 10, 2023 – The US government is taking aggressive measures to strengthen border and travel security by dedicating a budget of nearly $25 billion for U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The funding will be used for modernizing border facilities, technology advancements, and ensuring the safe and humane treatment of migrants and all travelers.
With this new plan in place, government agencies need to implement biometrics to secure borders and travel, while building consumer trust and data privacy at the forefront. In order to achieve this, Aware, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWRE) has provided government agencies with secure and convenient biometric authentication across domestic and international borders for 30 years. The technology offers clear opt-in/opt-out procedures, and advanced data storage solutions while reducing potential bias with its diverse data sets for algorithm training. From automating the collection, formatting, and validation of biometrics to providing custom reports and metrics in a centralized workflow for data sharing between disparate systems, Aware’s solutions are built with security and compliance in mind.
“Supporting governments in border management validates our deep understanding of biometrics, security, and compliance,” said Craig Herman, chief revenue officer at Aware. “As we continue to move towards a digitalized society, it is imperative for government agencies to stay one step ahead while still providing quick and efficient processes and the best way to achieve this is with biometric authentication.”
The company will be exhibiting at Border Security Expo, on May 10-11, in El Paso, TX, at booth #908, to showcase the latest technology in complete digital identity authentication for federal, state, and local agencies looking to protect their citizens without sacrificing privacy and convenience.
