Proxyclick’s real-time identity verification solution secures corporate buildings

Playing a game of ‘Guess Who?’ with visitors and contractors exposes businesses to untold security breaches. As a solution to that particular scenario, Proxyclick has launched its ID Match loud solution that verifies a guest’s true identity and stops any would-be imposters in their tracks at the front desk.

Using facial recognition technology, ID Match scans visitors’ faces against the photographs on their Government-issued ID (eg passport or driving license). The software quickly identifies the accuracy of the match, discreetly reporting results to the front desk and security personnel. This discretion allows for a seamless and secure visitor experience while the additional security measures are taken as necessary.

Geoffroy De Cooman, co-founder and managing director at Proxyclick, explained: “Digitising the process of ID verification not only speeds up the check-in procedure and alleviates overloaded reception staff, but also removes potential ‘human error’ from the equation. Automating the process also frees-up security personnel to focus solely on the ‘bad guys’, providing the 99% of ‘welcome’ visitors with a hassle-free check-in.”

With ID Match, Proxyclick is looking to reinforce its position as a Best-of-Breed visitor management system for enterprise companies needing more rigorous security processes. Along with ID Match, companies can use Proxyclick for all of their full security features and integrations. This includes reinforcements to existing security measures such as external ‘Watch Lists’ and any access control integrations.
