Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — MaxID, a leading provider of identity solutions and CoreStreet, an ActivIdentity subsidiary and a leader in credential validation solutions, today announced the sale of iDL500 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 IDL500 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 iDL500 units delivered to the Pacific Cruise Ship Terminal will be bundled with the CoreStreet PIVMAN client software, which provides a TWIC-compatible solution that has been in operational use for more than three years in the DoD, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), various states, and is on the FIPS 201 Approved Products List and the TWIC Initial Capabilities Evaluation (ICE) List.

“We are starting to see the real roll-out of port and vessel-related deployments for TWIC enforcement. The iDL500 when combined with the PIVMAN 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 Corp US.

“Leadership in key agencies continue to select the CoreStreet PIVMAN software with MaxID’s multi-modal handheld devices,” said John Bys, regional vice president 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.”

The iDL500is a multi-modal, rugged mobile computer that offers a complete set of features — including QWERTY keyboard, contact card, contactless card, barcode, optical fingerprint, and optional magnetic swipe and MRZ readers with a digital camera, GPS, and comprehensive communications capabilities. The iDL500 is a complete, integrated mobile solution for all badging and identity management requirements. When users need to read TWIC, SID, CAC, PIV, PIV-I, FRAC cards, passports, driver’s licenses as well as use the other on-board biometric functions to verify identity, the iDL500 does it all in a light, compact, easy-to-use form factor.
