A global leader in providing biometric identity assurance software, Daon will showcase the latest developments in aviation and maritime biometric security at the Middle East Airport, Port and Terminal Security Conference and Exhibition, to be held at the Grand Hyatt Dubai from March 14-15. The presentation will showcase the latest advances in global biometric technologies designed to enhance border security. Developments for employee credentialing solutions as well as e-gate systems are also part of the agenda. Daon’s products are proven to specifically address the needs of large-scale government security programmes, in addition to worldwide enterprise access control requirements. The Middle East is one of the fastest growing markets for the deployment of biometric technologies, and Daon will demonstrate product capabilities in iris, facial and finger technology. Outlining the need for further biometric identity software products in the Middle East, Daon founding director Tony Murphy expresses his enthusiasm for the forthcoming event. “We feel it is important to support such a regional ground breaking event. We will extend our knowledge to customers and prospects.” The region is witnessing heightened interest in the use of biometrics for e-gate and registered traveller programmes expediting the secure movement of pre-registered travellers through border points. Border control security as a whole is being implemented internationally to manage the movement of people and cargo across country borders. Visitor management systems are being deployed to manage entry and exit securely among various countries. There are several biometric projects currently planned or underway in the Middle East, including the Abu Dhabi Police E-Gate Tender. An additional dimension being rapidly adopted by organisations is employee access control to buildings and networks to protect their assets. The biometric industry is set grow and industry experts predict an expenditure of US$4.6 billion globally on biometric technologies by 2008. The market perspective will be driven by core technology enhancements and improved business practice on the part of biometrics vendors to ensure biometric growth.
