(Newswire.net — April 26, 2021) — Advanced security technology harnesses the advantages of biometric security solutions. The multifactor authentication procedures they employ have become an integral part of operations. Biometric solutions enable governments, agencies, and other organizations to quickly authenticate users or track employee attendance for instance. 

As a result of their commitment to innovation and business performance, Vladimir Cizelj and Vlatacom have established themselves as leading providers of biometric security solutions. One example of the effectiveness of their solutions and system integrations is their partnerships with governments worldwide

What are Vlatacom biometric solutions and how do they improve security?

Let’s take a closer look.

What are biometrics and how do they work?

Biometrics technology and procedures support the identification or identity confirmation of document holders. Moreover, these processes use a person’s physiological or distinctive physical traits like facial features, fingerprints, or iris to confirm their identity. Also, biometrics include verification based on behavioral traits such as a person’s web browser usage. Along with their biometric profile, they enable one more kind of user authentication.

When it comes to authentication using physiological traits, multifactor authentication technology is commonly applied. Usually, it combines the knowledge of a PIN or something only the user knows, possession of a travel document or ID or something only the user has, and something the user is like a fingerprint, iris or retina, voice, and similar.

Furthermore, the document contains the physiological input or biometric data. Once the document holder presents their passport or ID, for instance, the stored information is compared to the input during the verification process.

Why use biometrics?

The application of biometrics has many advantages. First, there is a high level of security during the identification procedure. Next, this is a quick and convenient way to verify a user or traveler intended to provide a positive experience to all participants in the process. Another important benefit is that biometric input cannot be transferred or shared digitally. Also, it is nearly impossible to duplicate fingerprints, face shape, or iris which makes biometrics a copy-proof technology.


What biometric solutions does Vlatacom provide? 

Looking at Vlatacom’s biometric security solutions portfolio, we can divide them into biometric enrollment, verification, and authentication solutions.


Biometric enrollment refers to the collection of biometric input required for ID or passport creation. A very common front-end biometric solution is the Biometric Enrollment Kiosk (vKIOSK-E), a self-enrollment device. Additionally, it enables the user to provide their fingerprints, facial image, and signature as part of the ID enrollment operation.

The same type of biometric data collection can be performed at different locations thanks to the Portable Biometric Workstation (vPBW). On the other hand, if on-site applicant enrollment, personalization, and personal and travel ID issuance is required, there is the Vlatacom Rural Biometric Unit or vRBU. This unit can be installed on an all-terrain vehicle and used in remote rural areas for example.


Verification is performed in an even easier manner thanks to the Verification Kiosk (vKIOSK-V). These self-service stations are commonly found at airport terminals and borders. More precisely, they allow passengers to verify their identity or biometric data stored on their travel documents.

In addition, Vlatacom Document Reader Handheld (VDR-H2) is a device security officers use to verify the identity of document or card holders. Attached to a laptop, desktop, or tablet through a USB, it scans the e-document and checks data efficiently.

Another verification device is the Stationary Document Reader (vDR2-C-OEM) typically found in security kiosks. It is a small terminal for document scanning and chip reading during the biometric identification process.


Large ICT systems require high-level authentication of users. For those purposes, Vlatacom Login & Access Device (vLAD-1) is used as an integral part of the verification steps. This small device employs three-factor authentication. In other words, a smart card, PIN, and fingerprint of a user need to match the available input. 

Who is Vladimir Cizelj, PhD, the man behind Vlatacom?

Vladimir Cizelj, PhD, is a scientist, innovator, entrepreneur, and the founder of Vlatacom Institute (1997). Initially a private company, Vlatacom has gone a long way to becoming the first private research and development institute in Serbia in 2015. With Vladimir Cizelj at the head of the Institute, a team of 150 experts and professionals has distinguished themselves as the go-to biometric solutions partner. Apart from biometric solutions, they create electro-optical systems, radars, Safe City components, and other devices that have the aim to promote government and corporate security.

Vlatacom provides technology and integrates systems across the borders of Serbia. Many governments in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America recognized the innovativeness and effectiveness of Vlatacom solutions and now use them as part of their operations

To sum up

Biometric technology is today applied across sectors thanks to its numerous advantages. Being high-level security solutions, they enable efficient verification and authentication of document holders or system users. Leading their development, we have Vladimir Cizelj, PhD, and Vlatacom Institute. Thanks to their innovative and highly secure solutions, governments and organizations enjoy an improved level of security. As they are industry leaders, seeing their biometric security solutions for the future is something their peers and clients can look forward to.
