Gemalto launches new immigration control solution

Digital security company Gemalto has announced the introduction of a computerised system, the Coesys Border and Visa Management solution.

The Dutch firm designed the new solution to meet the needs of securing borders and simplifying travel procedures, according to a press statement.

The statement revealed that the solution, which is end-to-end solution integrates high-availability service platforms, secure software and on-site services to reduce waiting times through the use of automated document verification and border control at land, sea and airport check points.

The new solution enhances security and provides a more efficient set of tools to monitor border entries and exits, the statement reads.

The Coesys Border and Visa Management solution would also deliver higher rates of detection and prevention through official international databases to check if travel documents have been lost or stolen.

“This new solution capitalises on Gemalto’s security expertise and the hundreds of millions of electronic travel documents with the associated services that we have deployed so far,” said Frédéric Trojani, executive vice president, government programs at Gemalto.

“With air passengers traffic expected to double by 2030 and 53% of all passports issued forecast to embed the electronic feature in 2017, Coesys Border and Visa Management comes about just when governments need to fast track travelers through major international airports, with no compromise on security,” he said.
