Brazilian court selects ISS and Shield IT to participate in electronic voting ‘integrity test’
Companies partner to develop integrated video monitoring solution for election pilot project
WOODBRIDGE, N.J., Oct. 27, 2022 – ISS (Intelligent Security Systems), a leading global provider of video intelligence and data awareness solutions, in partnership with systems integrator Shield IT, was recently selected to develop a customized integrated video monitoring solution as part of a pilot project for Brazil’s 2022 Electronic Ballot Integrity Test. The pilot project was conducted by the Regional Electoral Court of the Federal District (TRE-DF), which is charged by the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) with executing the test within its region.
ISS’s SecurOS® platform, which provides a wide range of advanced, AI-powered analytics and video management modules, was chosen by the court due to its demonstrated ability to ensure the effectiveness of the test and meet the challenge of proving the integrity of the electronic ballot boxes.
The initial test was successfully carried out by the TRE-DF both prior to and on the day of the first round of elections that were held earlier this month. The test will be replicated with the same process for the second round of elections that are scheduled to take place on Oct. 30.
