Biometric fingerprint solutions provider for the access control market, ievo Ltd, has joined the Genetec technology partnership programme. This move is designed to provide integrated fingerprint authentication systems to enhance the access control capabilities for users of the Genetec Security Center.
Engineers from both companies have been working closely to directly integrate ievo registration/user management software with the Genetec Security Center. This allows for simple access using only one set of registered (Genetec) credentials, rather than having to manage multiple credentials on one system. Security Center communicates with ievo systems via the central SQL distribution software, ensuring that the correct access and permissions for user profiles are distributed to access hardware.
“We are excited to be joining the Genetec technology partnership programme,” said Shaun Oakes, Managing Director for ievo Ltd. “Not only are we integrating two leading solutions for enhanced access control infrastructures, but we are also expanding our portfolio of working partnerships which will allow us to provide our system installers and end-users a wider selection of beneficial access control solutions.”
“Our technology integration relationship with ievo for access control efficiencies comes at an exciting time for Genetec, and will provide greater flexibility and choice for our end-users, adding another competitive edge for our unified security platform in what is an evolving marketplace,” said Francois Brouillet, Commercial Manager – Access Control, Genetec.
The integration of software means that registered Genetec credentials can be ported and used in the ievo user enrolment software. This will allow management of user permissions and credentials directly from one system giving greater control and visibility in a more comprehensive, unified manner.
