The SESAMES Awards: Banking & Payment Application category well represented
An undisputed hallmark of excellence, the SESAMES Awards, which celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2015, will once again pay tribute to projects that reflect the dynamism of innovation in the trust-based technologies industries.
The 2015 edition has attracted a host of entrants and introduced two new categories: Best Joint Initiative, awarded to projects carried out in partnership between several companies with common economic and social objectives and Best Connected Objects Applications, which acknowledges the rapid development of connected objects in recent years.
Olivier Trebucq1, panel member for the "Discovery" category observes: "Once again, the SESAMES awards 2015 has been a huge success. Most technologies and applications were seen in the "Best Banking & Payment Application" with almost 50 proposals. Many projects in the "Best IT Security Solution" and "Best Identification Application" categories also meet growing requirements for security and ID verification in online exchanges and commerce. In general, the innovations that have been presented meet the expectations of network operators and service providers who need to take account of mobile use".
A competition showcasing innovation and providing media exposure
The 2015 competition has attracted companies from 15 countries and was open to all innovative projects regardless of whether the entrants are exhibiting at the CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS exhibition.

of the media and new clients, which are the most difficult hurdles for a
startup to overcome.

The SESAMES Awards are a rare opportunity to show the entire industry what you have achieved.

IntegenX Applauds the Passage of the Rapid DNA Act of 201721.8.2017 12:00 | Pressemelding
IntegenX Inc., the global market leader for Rapid DNA human identification, applauds the signing into law of S.139 and HR.510, The Rapid DNA Act of 2017. The legislation will allow law enforcement agencies, under standards and guidelines established by the FBI, to perform real-time DNA testing at time of arrest, within booking stations. Similar to how fingerprint analysis has evolved from a paper and ink practice to a point-of-action technology, DNA testing has now become possible in 90 minutes within a booking station, while a suspect is still in custody. With processing times reduced from weeks to less than two hours, the potential to identify or exonerate a suspect quickly will make a meaningful impact on law enforcement. IntegenX thanks U.S. Senate sponsor Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and lead co-sponsor Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) as well as House sponsor Congressman
