Identity Reimagined at Identity Week

Identity Week is recognized as an unmissable identity event! NEC National Security Systems (NSS) was proud to be the title sponsor for this year’s conference, October 3-4 in Washington, DC.

NEC NSS kicked off the event with a keynote, "Delivering the Future Today," which was co-presented by NEC NSS President Kathleen Kiernan and NEC Laboratories America President Chris White. Spotlighting the speed of innovation to address the speed of threat, they described new AI technologies that go beyond face recognition to anomaly and intrusion perimeter detection, fiber sensing, and more. The interactive discussion examined use cases for increasing trust in the modern decentralized digital identity ecosystem.

Immersive demos were key features at our booth, including:

  • NEC’s Gateless Entry combines the #1 face algorithm with proprietary person re-identification technology to allow fast and reliable entry control at speed for groups of people. Even if people are facing away from the camera or their bodies are occluded, Gateless Entry provides accurate matching.
  • Iris & Face on the Move offers the most advanced, robust and flexible identity authentication. Because a person’s iris pattern is unique, the solution delivers safe, convenient access to highly secure areas, businesses, government buildings, military bases, as well as stadiums, theme parks and more.
  • Intelligent Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (IPIDS) uses cutting-edge technology, industry-leading detection rates, and low false alarms to detect unauthorized entry quickly and accurately. This capability is a leap forward for the protection of Critical Infrastructure and the Defense Industrial Base (DIB), increasing efficiencies and lowering costs.

Our team members described success stories and the latest advancements in authentication technologies during panel discussions and roundtables:

  • A panel discussion on Decentralized Identity with Jason Van Sice, Vice President of Aviation at NEC Corporation of America, fostered an in-depth discussion on how AI transforms digital identity management.
  • Austin Park, Director of Software Development at NEC NSS, led a panel discussion on AI, Automation and Machine Learning that focused on how AI is transforming identity management, concerns and issues related to AI, along with validation, governance and policy signals.
  • AI, Machine Learning and Identity: Differences, Similarities and Utilities Roundtable led by Frank Sangiorgi Senior Account Manager and Elena Harner, Solutions Engineer from NEC NSS, underscored how computer vision are rapidly evolving technologies. NEC’s active R&D keeps U.S. solutions on the forefront.
  • Triple Threat Detection: Identity, Video Analytics and Acoustics for Multi-Layered Intrusion Detection Roundtable led by Kelly Kipferl, Director of Solutions Engineering at NEC NSS and Dave Cunningham, Vice President of Marketing Strategy at Network Integrity Systems, led a roundtable discussion that looked at how fiber sensing provides real-time awareness, secures facilities and perimeters, including national borders, military compounds, data centers, diplomatic outposts and more.

NEC NSS hosted an uplifting networking event at our booth, celebrating the remarkable innovations within our industry, as well as the dedication of our colleagues in public safety, defense, military and government. The “on the tech floor” reception allowed for continuing conversations and some outstanding partnering opportunities.

We look forward to next year’s event! Until then, you can discover more about NEC National Security Systems or contact us to tour our Living Lab in Arlington, VA.

Safeguarding Fiber Optic Networks: The Power of Real-Time Monitoring and AI

In our increasingly connected world, fiber optic networks have become the backbone of communication systems, enabling seamless data transmission and connectivity. However, these networks are vulnerable to a range of threats.

Our industry-first, NEC Fiber Optic Smart Sensing (FOSS) solutions provide a way to protect network investments and reduce maintenance costs related to repairs and operational efficiency.

Watch the video to learn how to unlock the full potential of your fiber optic networks with NEC FOSS.

The NEC FOSS solutions combine our 20+ years of experience in transoceanic fiber optic transmission, our expertise with distributed acoustic sensing and advanced machine learning (ML)-based AI technologies to provide unobtrusive, low-maintenance detection capabilities.

Harnessing the Power of Distributed Acoustic Sensing
Distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) is a cutting-edge technology that utilizes fiber optic cables themselves as sensors to detect and locate physical disturbances along their length. This enables real-time monitoring of the network’s surroundings, allowing for immediate responses to potential threats.

Real-Time Monitoring with AI and ML
While DAS captures a wealth of data, its true potential is unlocked when combined with artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms. AI and ML can process the massive amounts of data generated by DAS systems and identify patterns indicative of potential hazards.

Benefits of Using FOSS:
1. Rapid Threat Detection
2. Cost Efficiency
3. Advanced Fiber Locating
4. Accurate Cable Route Mapping

Solve Crime, Detect & Prevent Fraud with NeoFace® Reveal

The facial recognition market is predicted to experience a remarkable compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.13% from 2023 to 2030. The market was worth $5.8 billion USD in 2022 and is expected to surpass $16.5 billion USD by 2030, according to Reports Insights Consulting.[1]

Facial recognition has become an essential technology for many government agencies to support criminal investigations and to detect and prevent fraud for government benefits and credentials.

For more than 32 years, NEC has been a leader in facial recognition technology. We’re proud to offer NeoFace® Reveal, an easy and effective facial recognition application providing law enforcement, crime laboratories, and civil applicant processing agencies the ability to recognize facial images (ranging from good to very poor quality) by performing either a one-to-many (1:N) search or one-to-one (1:1) match against a database of thousands to millions of database records. NeoFace Reveal is the software solution for questions of identity for identification, investigation and verification use cases.

The strength of NEC’s NeoFace technology lies in its tolerance of poor quality as well as demographic diversity, whether age, gender, or race. Highly compressed surveillance videos and facial images, previously of little or no value, are now usable, leading to higher rates of identification. NeoFace facial recognition technology has been extensively and repeatedly benchmark tested by NIST[2] since 2009 and consistently achieves a first place ranking regarding search accuracy within the biometric industry!

Digital Government Services Transformed with Digital Identity Services

Identity theft resulted in a staggering $56 billion in losses in 2020, according to the Federal Trade Commission.

Today, Decentralized Identity (DID) services have evolved into a disruptive technology redefining how we verify identities. This change in thinking, particularly within government services, offers a viable replacement for traditional identity verification methods with streamlined, secure alternatives.

Download our new thought leadership paper, Digital Government Services Transformed with Digital Identity Services, to learn why sharing trusted identity data across government and commercial ecosystems can dramatically enhance traditional identity verification and service efficiency.

NEC’s cloud-based Digital IDs are commercially focused and relevant for digital services. Leveraging DIDs that are highly interoperable with digital services and adding verified trusted identity data from government sources will enable a vibrant ecosystem for digital identities.
