Akidaia has created an offline access control solution. While solutions like badges, mobile apps, QR codes & biometrics have always needed to be connected to a database of authorized users, this technology decentralizes access rights, eliminating heavy and expensive infrastructure, and protecting against cyber-attacks. It is ideal as a security solution for temporary sites such as construction sites and isolated areas like technical facilities or industrial sites. https://akidaia.com

Galeon Hacker Defense Protection (HDP) instantly detects and prevents cyberattacks, protecting patients and Hospital assets. During an attack, Galeon HDP switches to SAFE MODE. It closes all compromised access and monitor traffic to let caregivers access to the patient file. https://www.galeon.care/en/electronic-health-record-galeon

Truesense is a highly specialized company that designs Edge AI software on UWB sensors, with unique expertise in the hybridization of ranging and Doppler functionalities. TrueSense has vertically integrated R&D, developing UWB modules based on NXP Semiconductor technology to target the market of UWB applications. Ultra-wideband is a radio technology based on the IEEE 802.15.4 and 802.15.4z standards that in terms of location accuracy, power consumption, robustness in wireless connectivity, and security can outperform other technologies (like Bluetooth or WiFi) in challenging environments by a wide margin. https://www.truesense.it

Algorized is proud to introduce its latest innovation at CES 2024, an advanced chip-agnostic software to detect people presence, vital signs detection and even capable of distinguishing between adults and children, by leveraging robust algorithms and UWB Radar technology to enhance people health and safety. https://www.algorized.com

Ghostpass Inc. is a self-distributed biometric authentication solution company that monitors and controls large amounts of biometric information by storing it individually on users' smart devices, rather than storing it in bulk in the cloud (central server), eliminating privacy concerns.

The innovative solution sends biometric data detected by the authentication request to the user's smartphone for authentication. This allows user to fully own the sovereignty of biometric information, and provides approximately 70- 90% cost savings and strong security compared to traditional server methods. Ghostpass is a member of Samsung's C-Lab program. https://www.ghostpass.ai
