Rosbank has started using biometrics to identify employees and visitors
ARMO-Systems has implemented a project to improve the security level in the new administrative office of Rosbank. The implementation of one of the key tasks of the project – biometric facial recognition of employees and visitors was achieved by the implementation of the Id-Guard solution developed by RecFaces.
«As part of the project, additional IP cameras were installed and connected to the Milestone XProtect video surveillance system in the Rosbank office. To implement the task of face recognition in the video stream, the biometric software solution Id-Guard was used, integrated as a special plugin into the XProtect video surveillance system. Thanks to the seamless integration of products, the Rosbank security service has been able to fully and conveniently use the functionality of the Id-Guard biometric identification solution in the Milestone XProtect Smart Client application,» — said Ilya Grankov, Director of the Engineering and Technical Department of ARMO-Systems.
The implementation of Id-Guard allowed not only to organize the identification of employees and visitors in real time, but also provided automatic notifications about the appearance of people on the floors to which they do not have access, as well as an operational search through the archive indicating the place and time of detection of specific people.
For prompt response to the events of the system, the use of the Id-Guard mobile client and specialized tablets are given, which provide information about the event of the identification system at any point of the new administrative office of the bank.
«Ensuring safety of the customers and employees of the bank is one of the priorities of our work. We are implementing advanced security technologies that help to automate and improve the efficiency of routine processes performed by security personnel every day. The use of a biometric identification system based on a face image has accelerated and simplified the response to emerging incidents, as well as accelerated and automated the investigation of incidents that occurred, and saved valuable resources and time,» said Vladimir Varakin, Director of the Economic Security Department of Rosbank.
Id-Guard is a solution for biometric identification based on a face image in a video stream, designed to increase the security level of the object. The video streams of the cameras of the CCTV are connected to the solution after loading the photo image file and assigning the «list» attribute. The solution instantly informs the operator about recognized or unrecognized persons belonging to the lists, saves all detected images of persons for subsequent automated investigation of security incidents.
"Id-Guard was developed by us in order to help security services improve the efficiency of their work, respond to incidents at protected facilities in a timely manner, conduct investigations as quickly as possible without watching the video archive for many hours. At the same time, Id-Guard is a completely ready-to-work enterprise-class solution with a set of thoughtful and verified functions. It doesn't take weeks to install it and integrate it into an existing system – just 1 day is enough, " said Tamara Morozova, CEO of RecFaces.
