SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Feb. 4 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — SecuGen Corporation, a world leading fingerprint technology company, today announced its collaboration with WCC Smart Search & Match, a leading provider of high-performance search and match software.

WCC Smart Search & Match has developed ELISE ID, the Platform for Multi-Modal Fusion, which is capable of searching vast amounts of data – both biographic and complex biometric – to deliver meaningful, ranked results extremely quickly.
