ievo fingerprint readers receive CPNI approval for government use

January 18, 2017 - 

Biometric recognition systems firm ievo Ltd announced that its latest revision of fingerprint readers has been approved by the CPNI (Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure).

CPNI included ievo’s flagship fingerprint scanner, ievo ultimate, as part of its trusted Catalogue of Security Equipment (CSE), permitting the scanner’s use in protecting a wide range of government facilities.

ievo ultimate, which has an IP65 rating, uses an advanced sensor which employs multispectral imaging (MSI) technology to scan and capture data.

Using multiple light sources, MSI analyzes the skin’s surface of the skin and the data points from the subsurface level (up to 4mm deep) of a finger.

The use of different light sources enables the scanner to penetrate levels of moisture and debris found on the skin to read data points underneath it, ensuring a more accurate, reliable and efficient verification process.

Ieva’s fingerprint readers are designed for both external and internal use and include an internal thermostat controlled heating system which allows to sustain temperatures from -20 degrees Celsius and up to 70 degrees Celsius.

The fingerprint readers can be deployed at a range of access points including turnstiles, barriers and doors, as well as be integrated into most leading access control systems.

“We have been CPNI approved for earlier models for some time, and now we are delighted that the latest improvements to our scanners are also fully approved for UK government use,” said Shaun Oakes, managing director of ievo Ltd. “We are confident that this accreditation will not only help in boosting sales, but will also act as a merit to the quality assurance of the ievo Ltd brand.“

Last month, UK access control management systems developer Tensor partnered with ievo to provide a range of clients across diverse sectors with advanced security systems.
