Fortior Solutions’ Vetting Team Hits a Major Milestone

05/27/2021 – Fortior Solutions, LLC, the leader in identity and access control solutions, reached another significant milestone. The company surpassed 5,500,000 NCIC/III checks and third party commercial background screenings through their access control solutions.

Fortior Solutions has unparalleled vetting expertise. The company utilizes best in class commercial background screening providers to conduct commercial checks.  The company is approved to process NCIC/III checks on behalf of the U.S. military through the U.S. Department of Justice. Fortior Solutions provides vetting solutions to some of the most security conscious organizations in the world including the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and critical infrastructure.

Over the past nearly 20 years, Fortior Solutions has identified 54,000 individuals who did not meet customer vetting criteria. The company also has identified and prevented three individuals on the government’s Known or Appropriately Suspected Terrorists (KST) file from accessing secure military locations. Individuals listed on the KST file have been arrested, charged, or convicted of a crime related to terrorism, or have been identified or suspected by the government as a terrorist or a member of a terrorist organization.

Fortior Solutions provides its customers with many security-focused vetting options including  NCIC/III/Nlets checks, commercial criminal history background screenings, and DHS Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) and Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standard Personnel Surety Program checks. Fortior Solutions employs DOJ-trained and certified NCIC terminal operators and trainers to process NCIC/III /Nlets queries on behalf of authorized recipients with approval from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). The company and their commercial background screening providers quality checks 100% of the NCIC/III/Nlets checks and commercial background screens. The company maintains key relationships with more than 8,000 state and local law enforcement agencies, enabling the company to quickly research and confirm findings to ensure completeness and accuracy of the searched data. Individuals are provided redress options in the event of adverse findings.

Fortior Solutions is an Nlets Strategic Partner. This allows the company to conduct Nlets queries (e.g., state information, DMV records, and sex offender information). The Nlets partnership enables Fortior Solutions to partner and work with the U.S. states, territories, federal agencies, and other strategic partners to serve and protect the company’s customers.

Not all of Fortior Solutions’ customers qualify for NCIC/III/Nlets vetting. In those cases, the company offers vetting by best in class commercial background screening providers who partner with the company to conduct commercial criminal history background screenings. Fortior Solutions follows rigorous practices in selecting its providers and conducts audits on each provider to ensure performance metrics are being satisfied.
