Circle Pass Enterprises has signed a deal with VST Enterprises, a Manchester-based cyber security company, to integrate its technologies into an electronic digital health passport.

Powered by VST Enterprises cyber security technology VCode® & VPlatform®, Circle Pass Enterprises has contracted for fully secure digital health passport called COVI-PASS™.

CPE is to start shipping orders from next week for the first phased release of 50 million COVI-PASS™ Digital Health Passports to both the private sector and Governments in over 15 countries, including Italy, Portugal, France, Panama, India, the US, Canada, Sweden, Spain, South Africa, Mexico, United Arab Emirates and The Netherlands.

The COVI-PASS™ Digital Health Passport works on an intelligent colour mapping system (green, amber, red) to authenticate and validate a COVID-19 test providing test history and relevant health information. This allows for accurate data metrics to assess those who have tested positive and negative and the location only of their testing. The COVI-PASS™ Digital Health Passport can be used as an authenticated gateway for Public Services, Businesses and Employees to manage a safe return to work, life, and safe travel.

Commenting on the deal VST Enterprises CEO Louis-James Davis said;  “We firmly believe that the digital Health Passport alongside Government approved testing kits is the key to removing the lockdown restrictions in a gradual and controlled way. The current technology being trialed using bluetooth and proximity apps is fundamentally flawed because of its privacy issues of real time tracking, the security and data breaches which we are already seeing and being reported and the reticence for citizens to uptake and download the tracing app.”

The Manchester based company are also in advanced discussions with senior UK Government officials, NHSX the technology arm of the NHS and the Home Office about its cyber security technology. The cyber security technology developed by VSTE can be used by various sectors including critical care workers doctors, nurses and health workers in the NHS and blue light emergency services key workers.
