Intersec zooms in on biometrics

Dubai, U.A.E

As leading providers gear up for Intersec 2017, the organisers Messe Frannkfurt say that the Middle East presents ‘untapped growth potential’ for biometric security solutions.

According to research firm Marketsandmarkets, the global biometrics systems market is expected to reach US$24.4 billion by 2020, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.9 per cent. Analysts from Technavio forecast that biometrics in the Middle East will grow even faster at a CAGR of 19.35 per cent up to 2019.

Suprema, Allgovision, Matrix Comsec are amongst the many international exhibitors that will be at Intersec 2017 in Dubai, to showcase their latest biometric systems.

Young S. Moon, Executive Vice President of Korean company Suprema, said regional governments and corporations are adopting new identification and authentication technologies to boost defences against potential fraud, cyber-threats, and organised crime. “We consider the Middle East as a key market with untapped growth potential,” said Moon, whose company is among more than 100 international exhibitors specialising in the latest biometric security systems at the upcoming Intersec 2016, the world’s leading trade show for security, safety, and fire protection. “The market has vigorous economic growth, high acceptance towards biometric solutions and a demand for high-end technology.”  Suprema will launch at Intersec 2017 its Bio-Entry W2 biometric reader, a multi RFID Reading, IP67-rated vandal-proof fingerprint access control device.

“The Middle East is of strategic importance to Suprema,” added Moon. “Our products and solutions are developed to address large or small business needs covering a vast array of industry segments. There are a number of factors that contribute to instability, whether fraud, cyber-threats or organised crime. Suprema offers next-level biometric security solutions that directly respond to these threats.”

On another stand at the show, Allgovision will introduce an upgraded version of its 3D Facial Recognition System, incorporating VA 2.0. Ashwin Amarapur, Director of Allgovision, explained: “The MENA region is a big Market for Video Analytics and the governments are giving a lot of importance to Advanced Security Solutions. We have received many projects in the countries of this region and have become a well-known brand. We intend to expand even further and increase our customer base and also educate people about Video Analytics.”

Elsewhere, Matrix Comsec, an access control and surveillance solution provider, is returning to Intersec 2017 to launch its Cosec Door FMX high performance door controller with multispectral sensor. Abhay Joshi, Business Manager for International Security Sales at Matrix Comsec, said: “This advanced multispectral technology reads surface and subsurface of a live fingerprint and gives very clear and strong image even if the surface layer is not available due to dirty finger, dry finger, oily finger, poor ridge image or other environment problems.”

Other headline exhibitors at Intersec 2017 with biometric security solutions include the Dubai-headquartered Business Automation & Security System (BASS), Iris ID from the USA, Swiss company Touchless Biometric Systems and Watchnet Access from Canada.
