Qylur Launches Automated, Self-Service, Security-Screening Kiosk; Liberty State Park, International Airport and U.S. Stadium Among Successful Trial Venues

Offered as Security-as-a-Service, Industry-First Qylatron Screens Guest IDs and Bags Five Times Faster, Detects Multiple Threats, Reduces Security Costs, and Improves the Guest Experience

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2013) - Qylur Security Systems, a user experience-driven homeland security technology company based in Silicon Valley, today announced commercial availability of the Qylatron™ Entry Experience Solution -- an automated, self-service, security-screening kiosk for sports and entertainment venues, monuments, and transportation hubs.

Already successfully demonstrated at Liberty State Park (at the ferry terminal to the Statue of Liberty), a Rio de Janeiro airport, and a U.S. stadium, the industry-first Qylatron scans guest IDs and screens bags five times faster, detects multiple security threats, reduces security costs with up to 50-percent less staffing, and improves the guest experience. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently granted Qylur its Support Anti-Terrorist by Fostering Technologies (SAFETY) Act designation, paving the way for commercial deployments of the Qylatron, the first of which is expected in early 2014. The Qylatron premiered yesterday at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City, where guests were invited to experience the entry solution first hand.

"Having spent my career in public safety and counterterrorism, and understanding the adaptive nature of evolving threats, I view Qylur as a truly transformative security-screening solution as it not only offers the most advanced detection, but also a less cumbersome user experience that maintains dignity and privacy," said Dr. Erroll Southers, associate director of the DHS National Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events. "Qylur is successfully challenging the status quo of security and safety solutions by combining artificial intelligence, a smart threat-learning engine, and sensor fusion, and applying it to a real physical field. The Qylatron is an innovation to advance security, reduce the margin of human error, and lower operational costs -- all while protecting individuals and their privacy."

The Qylatron offers comprehensive large-venue security screening, replacing outdated, manual-driven alternatives. The Qylatron expedites and upgrades a venue's security by performing five concurrent bag scans with patented, multi-threat detection that employs the fusion of multiple sensors. Equipped with an intelligent, threat-learning engine and ongoing updates, the Qylatron is able to respond to ever-evolving threats, both locally and globally. In addition, while a typical five-lane, x-ray security checkpoint setup occupies more than 2500 square feet, a Qylatron checkpoint requires only 450 square feet -- freeing valuable real estate for venues to support retail stands and other business interests.

"The face of terrorism and crime is ever evolving, but Qylur's mission is simple and steadfast: contributing to a vibrant, free society where people enjoy everyday affairs and large events, while being protected from security threats," says Leo Glesser, president of International Security & Defense Systems (ISDS). "The Qylatron is a one-and-done, cost-effective screening system that combines the best of human and machine capabilities to provide the best protection from security threats, while respecting and enhancing the guest experience."

Public venues wrestle with the inherent tradeoffs between guest experience, strong security, and operational efficiencies. Often, this delicate balancing act results in inefficient and intrusive screening processes that taint guests' perception of their experience and a venue's reputation. The Qylatron has been proven to overcome these challenges, having completed thousands of scans. Administrators at these venues have acknowledged the solution performs more effectively and efficiently, while delivering a better security experience.

"We deeply care about security and about human liberty. Our goal is to not just deliver the most advanced security-screening technology, but to also transform the industry so that our fundamental social beliefs and civil liberties never have to be compromised by the ultimate need for unprecedented security to protect our freedom," said Lisa Dolev, CEO and founder of Qylur. "We have put every ounce of our drive and passion to deliver groundbreaking technology and an extraordinary engineering design to help our customers offer the best available security and user experience, while respecting the personal privacy and the dignity of their guests."
