Inadequate biometrics systems could be creating a false sense of security in banks, security estates and office blocks, and in effect rolling out a red carpet to criminals.

Biometrics-based security devices, in particular fingerprint readers, are now widely in use across South Africa. But in many cases, they could be creating a false sense of security among enterprises, and worse – serving to enable criminal activities.
Identity management expert Ideco has announced a significant upgrade to its cloud and mobile-enabled Electronic Visitor Identity Management (EVIM) solution, which makes next-generation visitor management and compliance available to even the smallest sites.
Ideco, long the pioneer for advanced access and identity management solutions in South Africa, has yet again raised the bar for secure, efficient and cost-effective visitor identity management. Building on the successful 10-year track record of the original EVIM system, which has processed over 12 million visitors to date, Ideco is launching its new, enhanced EVIM system with additional features and advanced new functionality.
