NEC named Frost & Sullivan Biometrics Company of the Year

30 May 2019

NEC Corporation has been named the 2019 Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Biometrics Company of the Year. 

The award recognises NEC's foresight in innovating and developing biometric solutions for the future that maximises customer value and experience.

Governments and commercial enterprises worldwide are increasingly adopting biometric solutions for comprehensive protection across digital, personal and infrastructure domains.

In response to this demand, NEC provides biometric technologies in six areas - facial recognition, iris recognition, fingerprint and palmprint identification, voice recognition and ear acoustic authentication - under its "Bio-IDiom" brand. NEC's biometric solutions are used in more than 700 systems in over 70 countries, including police department, immigration control agency, national ID and entertainment industry systems.

"NeoFace, NEC's face recognition technology records the highest face matching accuracy in the industry and captures images at various angles, even if the target's face is partly concealed or the person is on the move,” says Frost & Sullivan industrial practice industry manager Nandini Bhattacharya. 

“Moreover, the software-driven NeoFace Watch enables video surveillance of suspects in crowded areas at unmatched speed and throughput in real time. Due to its focus on developing innovative solutions comprising a wide range of biometric technologies, NEC has emerged as a leader in the Asia-Pacific biometrics market with dominance in both public and private sector deployments." 

NEC's ongoing R&D and advancement in biometrics have helped to advance security and safety technologies of communities to the next level. 

At the same time, NEC is supplementing its biometric solutions with AI and data analytics to derive meaningful insights that have not been possible before. 

"We are delighted to be named Company of the Year for the APAC Biometrics Industry. This award celebrates our achievements and our philosophy of providing the best-in-class technology to businesses and governments globally,” says NEC Corporation global safety division managing director Tan Boon Chin.

“To reaffirm our commitment to building a better and safer world, NEC established the Open Innovation Centre in Singapore where we work together with customers and partners to pioneer next-generation biometric and digital solutions,"
