What Our Clients Say



Our History

Founded in 2009, ievo Ltd continues to redefine and raise the industry standard and expectations of biometrics.  The ievo team is comprised of security industry professionals with combined experience of over thirty years. Having been disappointed with the standard of technology available on the market within the industry, the team decided to design and develop its own fingerprint security system which would surpass conventional forms of access control.

Since launching in 2009, the team has expanded massively and now boasts five major departments; technical, distribution, sales, export and marketing which will help grow the business for the future.

In 2020, ievo Ltd was acquired by CDVI Ltd, a leading global manufacturer of access control. ievo‘s biometric solutions provide a superb complement to CDVI’s wide range of access control products, bringing the next generation of identification technology to the wider market.
