Access with TFA

October 2016 Residential Estate (Industry), Access Control & Identity Management

To keep abreast of latest technologies and the ever-evolving security environment, local biometrics solutions provider Ideco has announced enhanced features to its Electronic Visitor Identity Management (EVIM) solution.

The company has introduced OTP (one-time PIN) verification to protect the portal against unauthorised access and has also included an In-Out daily count on its dashboard.

EVIM is a mobile data capture and fingerprint scanning device that reinforces security with a digital visitor register, making visitor access management quick and easy. Unlike the traditional paper-based visitor book, this ingenious device captures, registers and verifies all data in real time with the National Centre of Certified Identities (NCCI).

Ideco managing director, Marius Coetzee, says these new features will ensure a higher level of security. “As with any high security web site, it is essential that only authorised users have access to the password protected areas of the site.

“We have therefore introduced OTP verification, after entering the username and password on the EVIM web portal, an OTP will automatically be sent via SMS to the user’s registered mobile number which then needs to be entered to gain access to the web portal.”

For terminals that have the ‘Direction’ function enabled, two additional counters have been introduced to the EVIM portal dashboard. These counters will display the number of people who indicated IN as well as the number of people who indicated OUT on the current day.

A number of residential estates are deploying Ideco’s EVIM solution to improve access security and enhance the overall effectiveness of existing services. Not only does EVIM enhance the visitor handling process, it also minimises the risk for criminal behaviour associated with identity fraud and provides improved accountability.
