RecFaces Expands Facial Recognition Software Availability to Linux OS
Dubai, May 22, 2023 — RecFaces, an international developer of biometric software solutions with facial recognition functions, introduces the extension of its Id-Guard and Id-Gate facial recognition software to Linux operating systems. The new update is aimed to enhance the accessibility of RecFaces’ flagship line of products for physical security by making them compatible with Debian-based operating systems. Most importantly, the company’s new update provides end-users with the choice of operating systems when upgrading their systems. The company will showcase the solutions at the Gitex Africa exhibition in Morocco on the 31 May — 2 June, 2023.
One of the key advantages of adopting Linux systems as a host server is the significant reduction in total ownership costs. The streamlined core operating system requires lower hardware specifications, leading to substantial savings in licensing expenses and an extended lifespan of the deployed solutions. Furthermore, the utilization of Linux systems enhances stability and security within the deployment environment.
From a technical standpoint, RecFaces' microservices architecture, combined with containerization, significantly simplifies deployment, updates, and overall system maintenance. This enables end-users to maximize the efficiency of the ready-made Id-Guard and Id-Gate software solutions, that can be either deployed on-premises or via the cloud and support both Linux and Windows operating systems.
Id-Guard is a software solution for video surveillance and security systems that allows end-users to expand the functions of a classic video surveillance system using identification in the video stream. The new version of Id-Guard solution, which operates on Debian-based OS, opens up possibilities for leveraging facial recognition technology in a broader range of environments to enhance physical security.
The Id-Gate software provides customers flexibility if they require Linux-based OS. Id-Gate is designed to provide access control for areas and objects using biometric identification. These features allow businesses to organize access control or improve the identity and access management process for employees. The system can be integrated with access control systems, biometric terminals and devices at checkpoints, as well as controllers, turnstiles and other access control equipment.
“Expanding the availability of RecFaces' facial recognition software to Linux systems opens up new prospects for more flexible and efficient physical security based on cutting-edge technologies. Customers gain the freedom to choose their preferred operating system and can rely on the convenience of RecFaces solutions”, – says Mohammed Bajarsh, RecFaces Head of Presales in MENA.
Eugenia Marina, RecFaces Business Development Director for MENA, notes: “This is just the beginning of a new RecFaces’ strategy of updating all our product lines. We believe it will lead to a more efficient way of providing our solutions to end-customers all over the world”.
