Morpho Selects AGNITIO to Strengthen Criminal ID Biometrics Solutions by Including Voice ID
PALO ALTO, Calif. and PARIS – January 26, 2015 –Today, AGNITIO, the world’s leader in voice biometrics, and Morpho (Safran), a global leader in security solutions, announce a technology partnership that is intended to help law enforcement agencies around the world identify criminals and protect the lives of citizens through the use of voice biometrics.
Morpho is adding AGNITIO Voice ID technology to its market-proven line of criminal identification biometric products. Now criminal investigators can accurately and swiftly identify suspects, verify backgrounds and confirm identities, even in difficult-to-solve cases where voice is the only available evidence.
“Morpho’s biometric products have successfully helped many investigations; however, as criminals become more sophisticated, new law enforcement tools are required,” said Philippe Vinci, EVP Sales & Marketing at AGNITIO. “Voice ID is extremely accurate, beyond 99 percent, and requires only a few seconds of a live or recorded voice to search and make a match. With Morpho Criminal ID solutions, law enforcement officers will have new valuable information in real time.”
“Our Criminal Justice Suite provides an extensive solution for criminal investigation, already leveraging fingerprint, palmprint, face and DNA technologies,” said Thomas Chenevier, Senior Vice President Products and Innovation at Morpho. “AGNITIO’s best-in-class technology will allow us to complete our offer with voice recognition to continuously support our customers in their fight against crime.”
AGNITIO will be attending the Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement event taking place January 26-28, 2015 in Arlington, VA. If you would like to meet with representatives from AGNITIO and learn more about our solutions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
