CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Answering the demand for a secure gate access solution that will alleviate long traffic back-ups and wasted resources, Privaris, a leading provider of personal, wireless identity verification solutions, today announced a new version of its plusID identity verification token that enables personal biometrics to be used for gate and vehicle security. Called plusID 90, this latest addition to the plusID family reconciles the demand for faster driver and vehicle identification with the need for heightened security.

Facility operators must be able to quickly and reliably verify the identity of drivers and vehicles without imposing solutions that violate privacy, add substantial costs or create additional security risks. Existing solutions that require drivers to come to a full stop for manual inspection cause traffic delays and significantly impact productivity. Privaris’ latest enhancements allow drivers who regularly enter ports, military bases or logistics centers to verify their identity using plusID 90 by simply swiping their finger on their personal biometric fob as they approach the gate. Once the fingerprint is matched to the stored template on the fob, it wirelessly transmits encrypted credentials (not the fingerprint) to the gate control system to validate the access rights for the driver and the vehicle, without the need to come to a full stop or roll down the window.

“Traffic challenges tied to gate access and identity verification are plaguing ports, military bases and their surrounding communities, as it has not been possible to reliably verify driver identity without stopping at a checkpoint,” said John Petze, President and CEO of Privaris. “The plusID 90 gate and vehicle system changes all of that. We’ve leveraged our innovative wireless, personal, biometric identity verification solution to create a ‘fast lane’ for drivers that will ultimately dissipate long traffic lines at gates. As a result, organizations will be able to reduce overall access control costs and wasted resources while increasing productivity and most importantly – security.”
