HID Global Corp.
Visual Security Solution
With the vanGO solution, cards are hot-stamped with a special square metallic patch that can be written with the cardholder’s facial image just before being issued using a special laser writer module and the high-performing, FARGO® HDP8500 printer from HID Global. This image creates a unique relationship between card and cardholder that makes the card nearly impossible to counterfeit. It is estimated that more than 90 percent of inspections are still undertaken by the naked eye rather than an electronic reader in the field. The increased “at-a-glance” vanGO security of each card makes it easy to visually identify and authenticate the cardholder’s identity without electronic readers or access to databases.
