FastVein® Biometric makes Olympics plain sailing
Croma Security Solutions Group (CSS), the AIM listed total security services provider, is pleased to announce that CSS Biometrics, the company's innovative Biometric systems development division, successfully deployed its state-of-the-art FastVein® Biometric system (FastVein®) to Dorset Police's Special Events Control Centre over the course of the London 2012 Olympic Games, at which Dorset played host to the London 2012 Olympic sailing events at Weymouth.
FastVein® uses cutting-edge sub-dermal scanning technology to perform ultra-rapid identity matching, with an ISO verified certainty of 1,000,000:1. FastVein® is quick and easy to access and eliminates the need for costly security cards, fobs or tokens. This was a critical benefit during the London 2012 Olympic period where many hundreds of extra security personnel were temporarily on site.
FastVein® was used by Dorset Police for identity assurance and management of secure access to sensitive areas at Dorset Police Headquarters including the Dorset Police Special Events Control Centre and the Strategic Coordination Centre
FastVein®, which can be integrated with existing security systems or deployed as a stand-alone solution, has already been adopted by 18 HM Prisons and Immigration Removal Centres over the last two years.
Sebastian Morley, Chairman of CSS, said: "We believe that FastVein® is quite simply the most advanced Biometric system in the world featuring ultra-high reliability and rapid recognition, providing an identification standard almost 35 times stronger than traditional finger-print systems. It features a straightforward, yet highly sophisticated means of delegating authorities to access zones for enrolled users. The Biometric enrolment uses harmless near-infra red light to highlight sub-dermal vein patterns, and only takes around two seconds."
