FST Biometrics: World's Largest Diamond Exchange Selects Company's Secure Identification Access Solution for New Facility


Rishon Lezion, Israel — June 23, 2015 — FST Biometrics, the leading biometric identification solutions provider, announced that its cutting-edge secure access solution has been deployed by the Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE) at the entry point of its new polishing house.

FST’s award-winning In Motion Identification (IMID) technology combines a unique fusion of facial recognition and body behavior biometric analytics technologies.

Providing a non-invasive and highly secure system, in motion access guarantees security for the permanent staff and hundreds of frequent visitors to IDE’s polishing house – while allowing them hands-free, hassle-free entry.

“We are delighted to have been selected by the Israel Diamond Exchange to service the secure access needs of its new state-of-the-art facility,” said Arie Melamed Yekel, CMO of FST Biometrics. “FST’s IMID Access is perfectly suited to provide the polishing house with critical security, without impeding the speed of operations.”

Located outside the IDE’s main campus, the polishing house requires an access solution that guarantees security for the diamonds it processes daily – worth millions of dollars – without impacting the access speed of hundreds of staff and visitors.

FST was selected after completing a rigorous trial period, in which the company’s IMID Access successfully passed all testing, and was subsequently piloted at the world-renowned International Diamond Week, hosted by the IDE in April 2014.

“Serving as a trading center for a high volume of diamonds, the Israel Diamond Exchange demands the highest level of security without slowing down operations,” said Israel Vantosovski, director of security for the Israel Diamond Exchange. “Having experienced the technology in action, we are confident that FST Biometrics’ IMID Access is the most secure and effective solution available.”
