ZKTECO USA ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH V-AUTHENTICATE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Fairfield, NJ – January 2019

ZKTeco USA, a leading provider of biometric and RFID security solutions, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with V-Authenticate, an independently owned software developer primarily known for their next-generation visitor management software called VAMS (Visitor Authentication and Management System).

ZK VAMS is currently implemented in over 1,000 locations representing over 350 customers located in 13 countries across the world. VAMS is used by many Fortune 500 companies representing several vertical markets including commercial & residential property management, banking, consumer product manufacturing, logistics, healthcare and education, to name a few.

VAMS software uniquely incorporates visitor AUTHENTICATION. Whereas traditional visitor management solutions allow the visitors to display any ID credential they chose (i.e. driver’s license, passport, etc.), VAMS requires the visitor to prove their identity by displaying on their phone a QR code or an OTP (One Time Password) sent from the visitor’s “host” via text message or e-mail. VAMS prevents imposters and unauthorized users from gaining fraudulent access to a facility.

As noted by ZKTeco USA President & Founder Manish Dalal, “While we see incredible increases in security product expenditures, it concerns me greatly also seeing customers neglect their visitor management strategy. Regardless how much time & money you spend fortify your building, your investment is wasted if you cannot safely & efficiently inspect & track visitors. We’ve adopted the VAMS software to address this important void in the market.”

V-Authenticate CEO Nikhil Kothary added “We’ve seen tremendous adoption of our VAMS software by end-users. By partnering with ZKTeco, we additionally gain access to the thousands of physical & logical security installers currently partnering with ZKTeco. VAMS is very affordable and I’m confident will do well in ZKTeco’s sales channel.”
