MaxID, a provider of identity solutions and CoreStreet , an ActivIdentity subsidiary and a provider of credential validation solutions, announced the sale of Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) accredited handheld biometric reader devices to Adesta, a systems integrator and project management company for communication networks and electronic security systems, for deployment by the Pacific Cruise Ship Terminal at the Port of Los Angeles.
"Adesta is happy to assist the PCS Terminal with the implementation of the TWIC readers into their everyday operations," said Bob Sommerfeld, President of Adesta. "We have worked with the Port of Los Angeles for several years now. Adesta is honored to extend that relationship into their terminals by identifying the best solutions, while maintaining MTSA compliance."
The units delivered to the Pacific Cruise Ship Terminal will be bundled with the CoreStreet client software, which provides a TWIC‐compatible solution that has been in operational use for more than three years in the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, various states, and is on the FIPS 201 Approved Products List and the TWIC Initial Capabilities Evaluation List.
"We are starting to see the real roll-out of port and vessel-related deployments for TWIC enforcement. The MaxID reader when combined with the CoreStreet software provides a powerful contemporary solution for maritime facilities, ports, and vessel operators. The CoreStreet/MaxID combined solution seems to be gaining significant momentum in this market," said Brian Skiba, President of MaxID US.
"Leadership in key agencies continues to select the CoreStreet software with MaxID's multimodal handheld devices," said John Bys, Regional VP at ActivIdentity. "This combined solution provides the unique capability of authenticating and validating highly trusted identity credentials such as PIV, CAC, FRAC, TWIC and Seafarer ID cards in communications‐out situations on a single device."
