ievo receives Lenel factory certification under the lenel openaccess alliance program
ievo Ltd, a leading provider of biometric fingerprint recognition products, announced that it received Lenel factory certification and joined the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance program.
ievo biometric fingerprint recognition products can now interface with the OnGuard access control system, providing a streamlined approach to fingerprint enrollment.
"ievo has completed required factory testing at Lenel to validate the functionality of its interface to the OnGuard system. Having this interface will provide our customers with a great biometric option to enhance their security," said John Marchioli, OAAP product management, Lenel. "We look forward to their continued involvement in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program."
ievo developed, designed and tested the specialized integrated fingerprint enrollment software in-house, which was then certified by Lenel engineers, verifying that it interfaces with the OnGuard access control system. The fingerprint enrollment software connects to the Lenel server for user information, as well as the ievo Sync server for enhanced management of the control boards and distribution of the fingerprint templates. The interface also allows for easy enrollment of new templates, along with template management.
With the increasing cost and complexity of managing security, the integration is a cost-effective method for systems migration and the protection of legacy investments. Not only is the interface efficient but it allows simultaneous fingerprint enrollment at multiple locations - providing directors and managers with the ability to remotely oversee the business. Should your company boast multiple premises, those templates will be securely stored on the ievo control board and can be accessed at each location.
The biometric fingerprint access control systems are a viable alternative to the more traditional cards and PINs systems, substantially reducing the risk of any security breaches.
This announcement for ievo also marks another strong interface for the company, and a larger, worldwide presence in the security industry.
Shaun Oakes (pictured above), Managing Director of ievo Ltd says, "2018 has been a fantastic year for us at ievo as we expand our reach and make our products more accessible to the wider access control segment. The interface with the Lenel OnGuard access control system will enable an efficient and cost-saving system migration and further protection of legacy investments. The opportunity also helps to boost the presence of the ievo brand worldwide."
