“Integral assists its clients in solving their complex mission-critical problems using innovative technology, a well-qualified team, and proven experience.”

We live in a world in which technology moves at a very rapid pace. Many of these technological advances can be used to make our everyday lives easier and safer. One of these new technologies is Biometrics. It is an emerging field of technology devoted to the identification of individuals using biological traits, such as retinal or iris scanning, fingerprints, or facial recognition. Biometrics has already been employed in applications ranging from verifying identity at security checkpoints, tracking attendance using time clock, and performing identity intelligence.

Integral Consulting Services, Inc. provides information technology solutions, multimodal biometrics solutions, open-source intelligence, cybersecurity, and mission support services. Integral Consulting, headquartered in Maryland, operates in various locations throughout the United States.

Integral Consulting Services, Inc: Synopsis

The Genesis of Integral Consulting Services, Inc

Integral Consulting Services (Integral) started its main operations in 2005, initially focusing on self-service portal solutions for the healthcare industry. Increasing threats from terrorism, identity fraud, and cyber-attacks prompted Integral to shift its focus to making the world safer and more secure by developing identity solutions using multimodal biometrics and performing all-source intelligence analysis to identify fraud and defend against such attacks. Over the past 15 years, Integral has built a strong brand and solid infrastructure, coupled with competent leadership and technical resources, receiving CMMI DEV/3 and SVC/3, ISO 9001, 20000 and 27001 international quality accreditations that demonstrate its commitment to delivering the highest quality solutions to the clients.

Integral’s Prodigious Expansion

Starting in a small office in Gaithersburg, MD, Integral has since relocated to larger headquarters in Rockville, MD, opened two regional offices in Charlottesville, VA, and Edgewood, MD, and has expanded operations across the Continental United States (CONUS), Alaska, Hawaii, and to U.S. Government facilities in a number of other countries. The company’s core capabilities include identity solutions using multimodal biometrics, all-source intelligence analysis, agile application development, DevSecOps, IT service management, and cybersecurity solutions.
