The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) awarded Real-Time Verification (RTV) technology with Safety Act Designation. This designation program was established to reward invention and commercialization of anti-terrorism technologies.
Real-Time Technology Group (RTTG) received DHS Safety Act protections for RTV as a qualified anti-terrorism technology following a rigorous review and evaluation process. The Secure Worker Access Consortium (SWAC), driven by RTTG’s RTV technology platform, was one of the key considerations in this review process. SWAC is a trusted community of contractors that supports the construction and maintenance of the World Trade Center complex and New York-metro region’s critical transportation infrastructure. This information-sharing program helps ensure workers who access sensitive facilities are known, safe and threat-free.
Specifically, RTV is a Web-based SaaS application that provides comprehensive personnel assurance through the secure collection and audited need-to-know sharing of sensitive personal information. The technology is designed to assist risk managers in evaluating and assuring employee and contractor compliance with local safety and security procedures. RTV supports the following secure processes: online enrollment, positive identity verification (including document validation), threat screening and monitoring, compliance measurement, and credential issuance and authentication. RTV’s real-time data analysis delivers continuous evaluation of compliance criteria, including terrorist watch lists, civil and criminal public record alerts, and continuing education requirements.
“This prestigious designation assures our clients that DHS has thoroughly reviewed our technology and hosting infrastructure, and deemed that it meets the high standards required as a designated qualified anti-terrorism technology,” said Daniel Krantz, managing director and CEO of Real-Time Technology Group.
