Securiport utilizes Amazon cloud for aviation, immigration security systems

WASHINGTON Aug. 26, 2016 Securiport LLC, a global leader in Civil Aviation and Immigration Security Services, has announced it has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a Technology Partner. Securiport develops innovative and comprehensive solutions that include expert systems and support services for civil aviation security, immigration processing, passenger biometric recognition, and intelligent information management and reporting.

Recently, Securiport deployed its first research and development workloads to the AWS Cloud as part of its strategy to enable rapid adaptation to cloud systems. By utilizing AWS resources and leveraging its membership in the Amazon Partner Network, Securiport can develop and test its new cloud solutions in a safe and controlled manner.

Securiport has employed a three-phased approach to using AWS to its fullest advantage:

1. Use the AWS Cloud as an accelerator for development and testing.

2. Leverage the services that the AWS Cloud offers to improve Securiport’s products with globe-spanning capabilities.

3. Move production workloads, especially analytics on open-source and unstructured data, into AWS’s secure Cloud environment to enable huge scale and cost savings. This innovative approach is following Securiport’s Intelligent Information Management System (IIMS) strategic roadmap.

"The Cloud is the future of development,” said Nate Carpenter, Securiport’s Chief Software Architect and an Amazon Certified Solutions Architect. "Our operational solutions are deployed on locally controlled, high-end hardware for security and compliance reasons, but AWS gives us the ability to safely execute development work and our R&D tasks using on-demand resources. We can quickly create servers and storage when we need them, and shut them down when we don’t. The pay-as-you-go model keeps our capital expenses down and allows us to control operating costs."

Securiport is working with AWS to host its R&D and test workloads, to reduce capital expense costs, and to improve time to market. As more of Securiport’s clients request immediate and globally reaching access to alerts and notifications, Securiport will offer solutions that use AWS’s global services, such as its Simple Notification Service, to give clients SMS- or email-based notifications when a significant event occurs.

Being a Technology Partner with AWS has afforded Securiport opportunities to develop and deploy several internal research and development projects, as well as the ability to test critical solutions in its immigration control portfolio. As Securiport’s client base is increasingly adapting to cloud systems, the company stands ready to work with AWS, along with other cloud providers, to see to it that the migrations are successful and strategically beneficial for each client’s security and compliance needs.

Securiport plans to continue its growth through AWS by using its Cloud expertise to connect further with customers who are in search of technical support.
