Ipsidy partners with REMCAP to offer security program Access at religious organizations

Ipsidy is a provider of biometric security and identification programs

Ipsidy Inc (OTCQX:IDTY) has teamed up with REMCAP LLC, a provider of payment and support services for religious institutions, schools and non-profits organisations, to offer Access, its new biometric security system.

Using just a tablet and a Bluetooth beacon, Access offers protection for buildings or public events by monitoring the identities of people entering a defined area.


Before giving the green light and allowing access, a site attendant using the security program can check on everyone looking to enter the location and see names and pictures biometrically authenticated on a mobile tablet.

The move by REMCAP to introduce Access comes after 11 people were shot to death while worshipping at a synagogue in Pittsburgh last year.

"We are delighted to be working with REMCAP to launch our offering of Access for faith-based communities," added Philip Beck, CEO of Ipsidy Inc in a statement. "In these uncertain times, religious organizations of all denominations, as well as schools and community centers, need to be able to trust who is coming into their facilities and identity is the essence of trust."

Access is digital and paperless and requires no integration of systems or costly hardware.

Access can be used at early childhood programs and by schools and camps whose staff are looking to authorize who can collect children. Synagogues and churches can also use the security system to promote and provide reminders of upcoming events by distributing electronic passes to attendees.

REMCAP has been working with faith-based organizations for nearly a decade, providing them with payment processing and business and management support services.

Bruce Gold, managing member at REMCAP, said he planned to introduce Access to faith-based communities throughout the country.

“Access can be tailored to meet each organization's needs and religious observances, whether for daily access, major services, or special events,” Gold said in a statement. “Importantly in an era of heightened awareness of best security practices, nursery schools, Hebrew schools and camps can use Access to know with biometric certainty who can pick up each child and maintain an audit record of who did pick them up."

Headquartered in Long Beach, New York, Ipsidy operates an Identity as a Service (IDaaS) platform that delivers a suite of biometric identity security programs. Its operating subsidiaries outside the US include MultiPay in Colombia, Cards Plus in South Africa and Ipsidy Enterprises in the UK. 

Ipsidy shares held steady at $0.10 on Tuesday morning in New York.
