With the issuance of HSPD-12, President George W. Bush called for a mandatory, government-wide standard for secure and reliable forms of identification issued by the federal government to its employees and to the employees of federal contractors.
According to the directive, â€œsecure and reliable forms of identificationâ€ means identification that is based on sound criteria for verifying an individual employeeâ€™s identity; is strongly resistant to identity fraud, tampering, counterfeiting, and terrorist exploitation; uses electronic methods of rapid authentication; and is issued only by providers whose reliability has been established by an official accreditation process.
â€œThis system is our swift response to clientsâ€™ needs who, in addition to existing multiple access systems, required a solution for one-time entry of security-sensitive areas only. We are very pleased to offer a product of such high biometric security standards and expect significant interest and brisk sales,â€ said Mark Phillips, vice president GVI Access Control.
The GVI access control system provides all biometric features on a single access controller while ensuring network encryption and added security of all data.
