Today, government agencies face two inherently contradictory objectives: securing borders and facilitating transit of people and property. Thanks to our end-to-end border management solutions, we help government agencies to tackle these challenges. We offer a wide range of solutions addressing all the critical steps of an effective border management: prior to, during and after border crossing.


In particular, we provide secure biometric traveler credentials, solutions for collection and risk-based analysis of API-PNR passenger data (Advanced Passenger Information, Passenger Name Record), comprehensive Entry-Exit systems and Automated Border Control solutions. Each month, our automated border control solutions process more than 850,000 travelers, and with more than 4,5 million Travel Documents issued in 2015 we contribute to a smoother and more secure border crossing.
