IVA CV facial recognition system implemented at checkpoints of Severstal Moscow office

PAO Severstal, one of the world's largest integrated steel and mining companies, has introduced automatic face recognition system IVA CV. Now company employees can get into the Moscow office without a pass.

The project, the main objectives of which are to improve the security level of the building with accurate visitor identification, as well as to create a comfortable environment for staff, has now been implemented in the Moscow office of the company: the system analyzing the faces of employees and visitors, was installed in addition to the classic Physical Access Control System (PACS) based on the Bolid equipment, previously installed in the entrance hall. In the future, the company is considering the possibility of implementing the project at its industrial facilities.

Installation of an automatic facial recognition system allowed Severstal to achieve several goals, namely to improve the security and quality of entrance control to the office premises, to reduce the time of passage and eliminate even minimal queues, to eliminate the problem of loss or forgery of passes.

Andrey Balyberdin, Deputy Administrative Director for Business Support of Severstal, said:

“The use of systems based on artificial intelligence allows not only to significantly increase the level of security, but also makes the office environment more comfortable for the employees, ensuring maximum mobility, as now there is no need to worry about forgetting your pass at home or at work. As well as that, the system has prospects for further development and expansion through the application at the checkpoints of industrial facilities of our company.”

Alexei Cessarsky, CEO of IVA Cognitive:

“The future lies in identification systems using anonymized human biometrics. The introduction of facial recognition technology into physical access control systems is one of the innovations in the field of artificial intelligence that can be applied in Russian companies with high protection and security requirements, such as Severstal. Due to its wide integration capabilities with the majority of popular PACSs, this accurate and reliable IVA CV solution will be in demand by both manufacturing facilities and large business centers.
