New call-to-action

What is RAPIDGate?

Founded in November 2001 by chairman and CEO Steve Larson, SureID, Inc., is an innovative security company and the brains behind the RAPIDGate (Registered And Previously ID'd) security program. According to Hoovers, this program “provides multiple layers of security checks, including the use of secure credentials, biometric data, and radio-frequency identification (RFID) badges.” The program, says Hoovers, “streamlines access for vendor, supplier, contractor, and subcontractor personnel that enter secure facilities.”

The top users of SureID, Inc. Passport systems include the U.S. Military, Department of Defense, and the Department of Homeland Security. In fact, this “credentialing and vetting program has been deployed at” more than 150 government facilities/450 federal facility access control points “across the United States and its territories.” The program helps the military protect facilities against dozens of threats from terrorism to identity theft, fraud, and unauthorized access.

The RAPIDGate program benefits businesses, commercial buildings, manufacturing and distribution sites, and other non-military organizations in the same way, which is why so many have enrolled in the program over the years.


According to SureID, Inc. research, a staggering 1 in 20 registrants fail the program screening protocol which consists of:

  • Social Security Validation
  • Fingerprinting
  • Address History
  • Government Criminal Database Check
  • Most Wanted List Check
  • Watch List Check
  • Biographical Background Check

And much more. This high assurance identity management system oversees and stores the information and provides a tamper-proof ID badge that approved registrants may use to gain entry to businesses or facilities.
