Controlling the flow of people and goods across international borders requires governments to examine vast amounts of data and information. Traveler data is captured at various stages, and in various formats, by airlines and other service providers.
Receiving data in advance of travel is critical – it allows governments to identify high-risk individuals before they arrive at the border.
Only when data is complete, has been validated, and is stored in a usable format can governments utilize it for the enhancement of border security.
