Seattle, WA. – May 22, 2012, Visualant, Inc. (OTCBB: VSUL), a pioneer provider of industry-leading color based identification and diagnostic solutions, an emerging leader in security and authentication systems technology and distributor of a wide variety of security solutions through its wholly-owned subsidiary, TransTech Systems, Inc., is pleased to announce the signing of a distribution contract with AssureTec Technologies, Inc. for their complete line of authentication software and hardware.
AssureTec’s software, hardware and document database solutions have been selected for security applications globally. High-resolution scanners, paired with the most comprehensive fraud detection software, can spot the indicators of a counterfeit ID invisible to the naked eye. Their patented technology applies forensic document-specific tests, virtually eliminates manual screening errors and speeds the document inspection process. AssureTec’s software platform and document database authenticates any of over 2,500 different identity document types worldwide and will assess the validity of IDs without operator intervention.
Bruce Reeves, CEO of AssureTec said “We are happy to be part of TransTech’s suite of products and are proud of our role in improving public security by eliminating the use of counterfeit documents and false identities to surreptitiously enter facilities. Our new generation of ID authenticators can be extremely useful in detecting counterfeit documents or modifications to otherwise valid documents.”
TransTech Systems is a leading distributor of card issuance systems and components which are often used in visitor management systems, check-in & check-out applications, and self-service kiosks. These solutions tend to include some level of document scanner to collect information from government issued IDs. Depending on the application, the documents and the information they contain, may require authentication. “AssureTec is the leading provider of document authentication and this market is growing. We are glad to provide AssureTec products to our reseller network,” said Jeff Kruse, General Manager of TransTech Systems.
