Telos ID (Telos Identity Management Solutions LLC) is among the world’s leading providers of identity management and access solutions. Telos Corporation has a 50% ownership interest in Telos ID.
For more than 20 years, Telos ID has protected people, critical facilities, and information assets around the world. We started in 1995 with the largest identity application in the government, assuring the identity of more than 10 million personnel and solving the problem of, “Are you who you say you are?” As the integrator of record for this customer we gained expertise in biometric and enrollment technologies and solutions.
From there, we formed a relationship with the FBI to perform criminal history record checks (CHRCs) on individuals, so that we can establish, “Can I trust you?” As part of that, we now are on the FBI’s list of channeling partners — part of a select group that they qualify.
From this past performance and knowledge base we won a contract with TSA so that we can bid on employee vetting services at airports and airlines across America. One of only three certified TSA aviation channeling providers, we became part of a select group that is certified to operate a secure system of record for TSA. Our solution is deployed at more than 40 airports and airlines across the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
Having won contracts for initial one-time vetting, we are now expanding our offerings and capabilities to provide continuous vetting of individuals. To that end, the FBI and TSA have engaged Telos ID on a pilot basis to be part of the continuous-vetting/always-on FBI Rap Back Program. In addition, due to our reputation with TSA, FBI, and the DoD, we continue to bid on very strategic programs in the United States.
