Sagem Sécurité (Safran group) has been chosen to provide a key security solution for the Minas Gerais State Administrative Center (Cidade Administrativa) in the capital city of Belo Horizonte, a new high-tech building designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer. In partnership with Task Sistemas, Sagem will supply a large-scale access control system comprising some 300 latest-generation biometric terminals.
The solution employs algorithms developed by Sagem, recognized for their high performance and accuracy. They will be used to ensure secure access to the key building entrances, using fingerprint recognition technology, thus ensuring the security of critical government information.
"The Cidade Administrativa is an avant-garde building with sophisticated infrastructures and equipment, and naturally demanded biometric technology on the market," said Fran?ois Perrachon, Senior VP, Sales Development at Sagem Sécurité. "This latest contract confirms the vast potential of our biometric terminals in the Brazilian market, and also reflects our commitment to establishing a position as a major player in the country."
