Increased banking security with cards

Access & Identity Management Handbook 2012 Access Control & Identity Management, Financial (Industry)

Reinforcing the security of a bank’s administrative centre.

HID Global announced that the company’s credential and reader solutions have been selected by Banco do Nordeste do Brasil (BNB) to reinforce its access control system for physical access at their administrative offices. With the objective of increasing card security, BNB also took advantage of the company’s Corporate 1000 Programme, where the smartcards were programmed by HID with a unique identification number for tracking during the production process in order to prevent card duplication.

In addition to selecting HID iCLASS contactless smartcard solutions, the bank engaged the services of the Brazilian integrator, Interactive Tecnologia, who suggested HID iCLASS R10/RWK400 keypad readers and the iCLASS RWKLB575 biometric reader to meet the bank’s security requirements. These readers, the HID smartcards, and software from the Brazilian manufacturer Commbox Tecnologia, replaced the old proximity system.

“Our corporate security policy is based on three pillars: trustworthiness, integrity and availability, and during our market research, we found that HID Global is praised for these principles,” said José Boileau, executive manager of corporate security.

The HID cards are used throughout the bank today for access to high security areas or as the photo identification credential for employees and BNB is completely satisfied with the HID Global installation. “There have been no installation or availability problems recorded and also we have not had problems with the performance of the products. It is a robust solution,” said Boileau. “Previously, it was not possible to generate access reports since we did not have the precise information on who entered each area. Now we can analyse various areas in detail.”

The positive results from the installation have motivated Boileau and his team to speak of the future. “Now we have a reference point to implement a centralised system of access control in approximately 200 banking agencies across 13 states and in the Federal District,” said Boileau.
