Ievo-Keytracker Collaboration Brings Biometrics to Key Management

UK-based biometric access control specialist Ievo has teamed up with key management solutions provider Keytracker Ltd. to offer the Restricted Key Access System.

Ievo-Keytracker Collaboration Brings Biometrics to Key ManagementThe system is designed to secure physical keys with Ievo’s biometric access control technology, which is based on fingerprint recognition. Aimed primarily at the healthcare and construction industries, the system ensures that only authorized personnel are able to enter a drug storage area, or to access the keys for heavy machinery, and so on.

In a statement announcing the collaboration, Keytracker General Manager Andy Smith indicated that the companies are “already talking to potential clients” in these fields, and suggested that many more applications could be explored, asserting, “the possibilities are endless.”

The integration further bolsters Ievo’s already strong presence in the UK construction industry, with the company’s fingerprint scanning technology having seen numerous access control deployments. And it should further help the company to move into the healthcare sector, and possibly even the government sector in the wake of its CPNI certification for its Ievo Ultimate fingerprint scanners.
