Cross Match solutions in UK government cloud

Cross Match Technologies has announced the availability of its biometric solutions via the UK's G-Cloud CloudStore.

This news means that customers are now able to access a range of Cross Match's solutions –criminal booking, mobile ID/enrolment and border verification/identification – via the G-Cloud CloudStore. The G-Cloud catalogue is open to all public sector clients and is designed to provide a simple streamlined process for buying Information and Communications Technology (ICT) focused products and services as a commodity, thereby avoiding time-consuming and costly open tenders.

The UK Government is attempting to transform the way IT is not only bought but also consumed across the wider public sector to help improve the efficiency of police, government agencies and the military.

Cross Match's G-Cloud offering incorporates proprietary software applications and fully certified livescan and multimodal mobile hardware, addressing multiple biometric and credentialing modalities. Applications include WEBS cloud-based identity management software, as well as Mission Oriented Biometric Software (MOBS) for multi-biometric handhelds. Technology solutions include the company's Guardian and Patrol ten-print fingerprint scanners, 500P and 1000PX palm scanners, Verifier Mw single finger identification handheld, SEEK Avenger multi-biometric handheld, and Authenticator secure credential reader.

The company opened a UK office in March of this year, reinforcing its commitment to the market.
