Change in the Security Industry

Change in the security industry is inevitable:
Times and seasons change, so does technology. Each day presents something new in the field of technology: so it is critical for companies, organizations and government to keep up to date with security developments.

The security industry, in particular, feels the impact of changing needs throughout the world. Persons in the security industry, including government institutions that deal with security, are compelled to keep up with this constant change in technology.

A time is coming where physical characteristics of employees (eyes, faces, behaviour aspects, signature or voice recognition) will be used to permit access to certain areas. In fact, some manufacturers of biometric readers, for example Anviz, are offering such devices – that is why Itatec has agreed to a core partnership with Anviz to distribute and support Anviz’s exciting wide range of products. We believe that the success of each Anviz product in the market is based on unique features that distinguish it from like products.

The current wave of change taking place in the security/biometric industry is inevitable because of more specific requirements for unbridgeable security systems. Researchers have highlighted the necessity to use physical characteristics to secure data and control access to buildings.
The directors of many companies are realizing the importance of time-and-attendance to their companies. There is, therefore, a demand for biometric devices which can perform the dual functions of employee recognition and time-and-attendance. Anviz T50, T60, VF30, OA1000 or AO1000 Mercury, combine this 2–in-1 function and are easy-to-use and to install. Because companies have differing access control and time-and-attendance needs, devices that manage access control or time-and-attendance are the Anviz D100, D200, EP300 and A300. In all, these devices save money, time and electricity.

The fact is that the South African security industry has been using fingerprint and card readers for many years. And Itatec has been able to meet the needs of many organizations. But we cannot shy away from upgrading current systems. It is important for companies to keep up-to-date with changes in biometric technology.
