Vertus Fusion™ incorporates cutting edge security technology to enable the continued mitigation of risk. The technology is innovative and utilised throughout the customer’s journey. Our technology allows the customer to enjoy a frictionless experience. From bespoke ticket purchase, seamless entry to the venue through facial recognition and the enjoyment of targeted discount QR codes.
The client has enhanced security capabilities through the commercial utilisation of data, providing real time intelligence to security teams and law enforcement. The Vertus™ service is a new technology in the anti-fraud and biometric identity sector, built to increase security at events and spaces, targeting and removing ticket touts, credit card fraud and unauthorised entry. Facilitating full identity checks on legitimate attendees, allowing genuine transfer of tickets with minimal setup costs and low running requirements. Keeping pace with emerging technologies and absorbing new biometric and anti-fraud systems establishes Vertus™ at the cutting edge of the security industry.
This system will take over part of the actions at present performed by simple scanning systems that offer no security other than ticket validation. Vertus™ provides a simple and efficient onboarding system that easily attaches to the normal ticketing systems of any company. Users receive an onboarding link through their ticket confirmation. Once onboarded through a mobile device there is no other interaction required from the user until they enter the venue. At the gate or entry point of the event, a guard can scan the ticket in the traditional way and verify the face of the holder against the database without slowing the speed of entry. The system can also manage, VIP area access, staff access and verification, notice dissemination and emergency alert notifications.

A top security expert has claimed that stadiums have not changed since the Manchester Arena bombings almost two years ago. Peter Miles, CEO of Broadstone Risks, a security company protecting famous clients, said the 'mindset of cost saving' is the dominant force stopping stadiums from doing more to improve security.
The parents of Saffie Roussos, the youngest of the 22 people killed in the Manchester Arena attack, have spoken of their struggle two years on. Saffie was eight years old.
