GE Security has announced the State of Florida has deployed GE’s Identity Commander security platform to its 12 deepwater seaports as well as its Dept. of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles headquarters in Tallahassee.

The technology works with biometric identity management from ImageWare Systems, Inc.
