HID Global announced that the company’s credential and reader solutions have been selected by Banco do Nordeste do Brasil (BNB) to reinforce its access control system for physical access at their administrative offices headquartered in Fortaleza, Ceará.
With the objective of increasing its card security, BNB also took advantage of the company’s Corporate 1000 Program, where the smart cards were programmed by HID with a unique identification number for tracking during the entire production process in order to prevent card duplication.
In addition to selecting HID iCLASS contactless smart card solutions, Banco do Nordest engaged the services of the Brazilian integrator Interactive Tecnologia Ltda. who suggested HID iCLASS R10 /RWK400 keypad readers and the iCLASS RWKLB575 biometric reader to meet the bank’s security requirements.
These readers, the HID smart cards, and software from the Brazilian manufacturer Commbox Tecnologia, replaced the old proximity system, providing the stringent security needed to form the ideal platform for controlling access to strategic points of BNB’s administrative offices.
