NEC bolsters 2016 APEC security

NEC Corporation and NEC de Colombia S.A. enhanced the security capabilities of the Peruvian National Police by providing the NeoFace Watch facial recognition software during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders’ Week in Lima, Peru last November 7 to 20.

NEC’s NeoFace Watch solution allowed security members to identify faces in real time and match them against a watch list of preregistered individuals. When the system identifies an individual from the watch list, it raises an alert so authorities can rapidly take appropriate actions, reducing the risk of public safety threats.

“We consider it an honor that Peru was chosen for a second time to host the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week,” said Carlos Tuse Lloclla, General PNP, Executive Director of Integrated Security, State Security Department of the Peruvian National Police. “This additional layer of security provided by NEC’s facial recognition technologies demonstrated our commitment to ensuring another successful summit that would benefit all participants.”

“NEC’s facial recognition technologies have been adopted to ensure the safe operation of national ID programs, international airports and large-scale facilities all across the world,” said César Gallegos Chávez, Peru Office Director, NEC de Colombia S.A. “We are proud to have contributed to the safety and security of so many leading members of the global business and political communities at the 2016 APEC Economic Leaders’ Week.”
