Mobile enterprise solutions provider DMI and biometrics specialist NEC Corporation of America have entered into a strategic partnership.
In a statement announcing the collaboration, the companies indicated that their combined solutions will be aimed at applications in “public safety, national security and federal civilian technology priorities within the U.S. government.” More specifically, the companies intend to offer biometric access control solutions for government facilities; biometrically-secured communications services; and mobile fingerprint, iris, and facial recognition technologies for military agents and first responders. They will also leverage NEC’s facial recognition technology for identification in large crowds.
Commenting on the partnership, DMI CEO Jay Sunny Bajaj said it will allow the companies “to offer the next generation of public safety and homeland security solutions to our government clients.”
News of the partnership arrives just ahead of the INTERPOL World 2017 security conference, where NEC will have an opportunity to further raise its profile among government sector organizations.
