Access and Authentication

In today’s complex and challenging security environment, both businesses and governments are implementing faster, more secure access control and authentication solutions to guarantee the security of people and assets. Access and Authentication systems increasingly rely on biometrics, whether this is in a single-factor or multi-factor authentication system and NEC offers a range of access control and authentication solutions that use biometrics, for example, a person’s face, at border control gates, stadium entry points or office building entrances.

Our biometric Access and Authentication systems can quickly and accurately ensure that only the appropriate people are allowed to enter secure areas or areas where access is restricted such as critical infrastructure sites or areas where certification is required in order to be allowed access such as areas with hazardous chemicals.

Face recognition has become particularly appealing for access control given its contactless nature. NEC’s access control leverages NeoFace Watch, our world-leading Facial Recognition software to capture images of employees, visitors or other personnel accessing buildings or infrastructure, and matches those faces to a database of approved people to grant or deny access.

Who we work with

NEC’s Access and Authentication systems are implemented by a wide range of companies and government agencies and other organisations wanting to ensure only authorised persons are provided access.

Most typically, our Access and Authentication solutions are used to access secure, restricted or remote areas and the technology provides the following features:

NEC New Zealand uses our face recognition system at our offices to greet and register staff and visitors and control their entry to ensure only authorised persons are provided access to secure areas.

Biometric Access and Authentication

Biometrics systems use automated techniques to verify or identify people by their physical characteristics. Biometric systems can use fingerprint, face, voice or iris. Face recognition is increasingly popular given its contactless nature. It requires no effort by the user, and is increasingly used for tasks such as surveillance and physical access control where biometrics provide both high levels of security and convenience.
