Safran Identity & Security, a global leader in identity and security solutions, has been selected by the Kenya's Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to provide the technology solution for the country’s forthcoming general elections to be held on August 8, 2017.

The IEBC has appointed the company to provide the necessary technology to power the Kenya Integrated Elections Management System (KIEMS) for the general elections that will feature six major elections, including the presidential election.

Using its latest innovations in biometrics, Safran Identity & Security will provide a comprehensive solution in order to help the IEBC verify the voters list before the elections and facilitate a smooth and reliable electoral process. The electronic authentication of every voter with the provided system in the forthcoming general elections will be key to the rollout of free, fair and credible elections.

In order to carry out these various tasks, Safran Identity & Security will provide IEBC with its secure biometric tablets. More than 45,000 Morphotablets will be used to verify the voters list before the election and to authenticate the voters with their fingerprints and photo before allowing them to vote. The tablets will also ensure secure transmission of the voter turnout data and election results.

"We are providing the IEBC with a complete and secure solution in record time in order to contribute to the successful organisation and delivery of these elections. We thank the IEBC for entrusting us as a partner in this major democratic event for Kenya." Anne Bouverot, CEO and Chair of Safran Identity & Security.
