Security measures and applications to help organisations adapt to a world with COVID-19

13 May 2020

The arrival of COVID 19 has forced many organisations to re-think the way they operate. With the knowledge that this threat has the potential to be around for the foreseeable future many organisations are now having to adapt their work spaces to allow their employees to continue working and for their business to continue to operate.

COVID-19 has pushed a number of security solutions into the spotlight, one of which is contactless access control. With the need for businesses to protect their property but the added concern of hygiene, many are now looking to adopt contactless biometric solutions.

Below we have listed some of the solutions we believe can benefit businesses at this time.


MorphoWave Compact Access control

With IDEMIA newest addition the MorphoWave™ Compact and Arana Security’s customisable application, a contactless biometric access control solution for capturing and matching 4 fingerprints with a single hand movement can be implemented. It implements a patented, truly contactless 3D fingerprint technology in a stylish and compact wall-mounted device, suitable for any location. The MorphoWave™ Compact does not only acquire extremely accurate fingerprint data but also overcomes the challenges of wet/dry fingers and latent prints pose to the conventional scanning systems.



 D-Flow by Digicon gates

D-Flow is a new paradigm with normally open doors, that brings more comfort, faster flows, with higher levels of accessibility and security. It can be teamed up with the MorphoWave Compact to give a true contactless experience.

Such technology can revolutionise industries such as the aviation industry. Boarding pass information can be stored and authenticated using the individual’s biometrics meaning they are able to pass through the gates with no contact. Teamed with the open-door functionality of the d-flow this solution can save on que times as well.



QuikPay Shop, bag and go application for retailers

This application developed by Arana Security will allow customers to shop, scan, bag and go with a simple mobile application. This minimises any contact they may have with staff and payment terminals reducing the threat of COVID-19 for both customers and staff.

The application will need to be downloaded onto the customers phone where they can create an account, scan items and then place in their bag. The application is fully customisable for your organisation.  


Contactless Biometric Payment Terminal
