HILLSBORO, Ore.—April 28, 2016— SureID®, Inc., a national leader in high-assurance identity management solutions, announced today that its flagshipRAPIDGate® program is nearing implementation completion at all 24 Marine Corps installations across the Continental United States and Hawaii. The expansion of this program is a testament to the company’s strengths in enhancing security at Marine Corps installations while streamlining the process for vendors, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, service providers and others who request access to those installations.
“Today’s announcement is further evidence of our role as the nation’s foremost provider of high-assurance identity management solutions,” said Steve Larson, chairman and chief executive officer of SureID, Inc. “The safety of our men and women in uniform, their dependents and others who live and work on military installations is of the utmost importance as military leaders constantly seek ways to enhance security and safety while improving efficiency. Supporting the Marine Corps and other branches of the military in that endeavor is crucial and is what drives the SureID team every day. Accordingly, we are proud to expand our support of the United States Marine Corps.”
The RAPIDGate program has been in place with the United States Marine Corps bases on the west coast since 2006. Since the recent expansion of the RAPIDGate program across the east coast, over 3,000 companies have enrolled in recent months. The RAPIDGate program has also been in place across all Navy installations since 2004 and supports Coast Guard and Army installations and thousands of companies and their employees.
The RAPIDGate program supports businesses of all sizes by handling the management of participant screening and credentialing for installation access while reducing unproductive wait times to get on base. Once a person is an approved participant of the RAPIDGate program, there is no need for daily visits to the Pass and ID office for a temporary access pass.
About the RAPIDGate Program
The RAPIDGate program is an end-to-end high-assurance identity management solution. This program solution currently manages the identities and installation specific access privileges of tens of thousands of program credential holders to military installations throughout the nation. RAPIDGate Program participants can, with one credential, access any installation where the Program is implemented so long as the company they represent has been sponsored by the installation or a tenant command and is approved by the installation commanding officer. The RAPIDGate program is further enhanced by the implementation of the RAPID-RCx features which allow security personnel to scan drivers licenses, CAC cards, teslins, and TWICs.
