Industry-leading LPR technology to incorporate cutting-edge redaction software as integral part of its groundbreaking audit trail feature set
PlateSmart™, worldwide brand leader of License Plate Recognition (LPR) Analytic Solutions, today announced that TeraDact Solutions™ and PlateSmart will team to integrate TeraDact’s patented Information Identification and Presentation (IIaP™) capabilities, including the TeraDactor™ redaction engine, with its “software only” license plate recognition (LPR) solutions for mobile and fixed security applications. Through this integration, as well as a number of innovations to its own proprietary software-only technology, PlateSmart is creating the industry’s first completely auditable database search engine for Federal and state security agencies’ use.
In conjunction with PlateSmart’s industry-leading LPR solutions, which also feature facial recognition, third-party database integration and a robust data security infrastructure, TeraDactor™ will complement PlateSmart to ensure that reports and images collected by PlateSmart’s customers will be protected from the unintended release of personal data. Put simply, the technology will enable the identification of data not directly related to PlateSmart’s analytics and potentially “scrub” that data from images and/or reports requested. TeraDact’s redaction technology will become an integral part of the comprehensive audit trail feature set in ARES, which is PlateSmart’s enterprise LPR-based video data analytics solution. This functionality provides a complete record of every informational query made through ARES to any database, including the identity of an agent making the request, the time and date of the request, what information was sought, and more. Any information identified in an image as not directly related to the agent’s request could be redacted by the TeraDactor, thus preventing unauthorized access of data. This ability to restrict what information can be accessed, as well as providing full accountability for every request made, will help to ensure that procedures are properly followed and data properly used thus alleviating many of the privacy concerns that have been raised about LPR.
“As governments and private entities collect vehicle data, secure information sharing is mandatory. In order for that collaboration to occur, sensitive and private data must be carefully managed.” said Chris Schrichte, President and CEO of TeraDact Solutions. “The combination of PlateSmart’s leading edge collection capabilities combined with the TeraDactor™ will help to ensure that sensitive information is not compromised and that privacy is properly protected.”
PlateSmart CEO John Chigos said, “Our partnership with TeraDact is the final step to completing the industry’s most robust and comprehensive auditing system for ARES, which we believe will set the industry standard for data integrity in LPR and video analytics. ARES will now become the primary investigative data gatekeeper of the industry, because it is completely transparent, holds all users fully accountable, and safeguards against unauthorized access like no other product on the market. Even we at PlateSmart cannot access the data guarded by ARES. PlateSmart as a company is committed to ensuring the responsible use of LPR data and the protection of personal privacy rights, as we feel that safety is of little value without the preservation of the rights guaranteed to us by the Constitution. Thanks to this agreement, PlateSmart will be able to implement these vital features in ARES without compromising its remarkable power to fight crime and terrorism and to save lives.”
