After establishing its business in the domestic and European markets, this is the next step of the company’s long-term strategy to gain market share in export territory markets, said Ievo in a statement.

“The new partnership is central to growth plans and builds upon the work already done on increasing the knowledge base of not only the Ievo Ltd brand, but biometric security solutions in general,” stated the company.

According to Stephen Thompson, export sales manager for Ievo, the company’s fingerprint biometric products have been designed aiming to meet the environment and climate requirements of the Middle East and Africa.

“They are already IP65 certified with integral thermal management systems which enables functionality at up to 70 degrees and fully compatible with existing Paxton and other global integration software packages,” he added.

Thompson further commented, “We have been seeing a substantial growth in the Middle Eastern markets with regards to security products and specifically biometric solutions and we are pleased to have the support, reach and expertise of the market from our partners at NIT.”

NIT, an Ingram Micro Company, is one of the leading value added distributors of complete IP surveillance and security solutions in the region. With more than 20 years of experience of the security market, the company aims to provide internet protocol solutions to security challenges working in close partnership with system integrators, consultants and vendors.

Commenting on the partnership, Bassel Fakir, managing director of NIT, added, “We are looking forward to working closely with Ievo Ltd, and our technical and sales teams are keen to start introducing, distributing and supporting the full range of products to our wider network of installers, integrators and clients throughout the META region.”
