Due to economic cyber threats in the last few years, banks have become a sensitive target for major data theft, and a crucial element that needed to be addressed was the ability to check recurring vehicles leaving the facility and trying to conceal external storage devices in the undercarriage of a vehicle.
With that threat being addressed, there are also scenarios of armed robbery and weapon smuggling into the site.
Vehicle access point
One of the leading banks in Africa, which is situated in Kenya, has been a customer of UVeye for over 4 years.
The bank employs several hundred personnel and has a vehicle access point which, needs to inspect over 300 vehicles driving in and out of the premises daily.
Before installing UVeye’s intelligent vehicle screening solution, the bank trained its personnel to manually inspect every vehicle entering or leaving the facility with a hand-held mirror.
This measure could compromise their safety and rely on the limited visual ability of a person looking through a mirror at different angles.
Helios UVIS by UVeye is setting the global standard for under-vehicle inspection.
Equipped with five high-resolution cameras, the system can be installed at the access lane of the bank and automatically detect any illicit materials entering the bank.
Training local staff
The local staff was trained within several weeks of the installation, and the two guards who previously scanned with mirrors were now inspecting the undercarriages through a high-resolution image on a modern tablet while doing other tasks and approaching only suspicious vehicles that required the attention and care of the staff.
