IP video surveillance systems are one of the most popular and effective security systems on the market today, gaining traction in various markets across the globe and particularly in educational institutions such as schools, campuses and universities.

Video analytics has come a long way to where it is a reliable and trusted addition to video surveillance today. Many organisations rely on analytics today to make the jobs of monitoring cameras easier and more accurate, leaving human operators to do what technology can’t and to add real value – which excludes sitting and watching a screen all the time.Details

Anyone can throw a few cameras on a few poles or screw them into a wall and say they have installed a surveillance system, but will that system actually deliver value? Will the needs of the end user be met in terms of secur-ity or will they simply be able to say they have a surveillance system and perhaps get a little discount from their insurance company?Details

Standards are the one thing missing in the South African security industry.

Commercial environments are no longer looking for individual security solutions. Today they want a package that offers all the aspects of security they need.

While a security system is often sidelined as a grudge purchase in most sectors, there can be no debate about its critical importance in the banking sector.
Intelligent security systems are now more important than ever before as banks try to guard against both internal and external fraud in an ever worsening economic climate. That’s to say nothing of the ever present threat of a potential armed robbery. Taking all this into account, banking is one industry where effective security is a non-negotiable must.Details
The temptations inherent to the banking sector, and financial institutions more generally, pit them in an eternal and increasingly high-tech battle to secure themselves against threats from within and without. They also have a responsibility to protect their customers and their data from unauthorised access, and since bank branches are essentially businesses they are seeking ways to improve the customer experience in similar ways to the retail sector.
Addressing all these concerns requires a highly integrated approach that uses the cutting-edge of security technologies across the board. We asked IDEMIA, Cathexis Africa and CA Southern Africa how their companies’ particular areas of expertise are being leveraged in the financial sector.Details

The danger in creating silos of the separate elements of a security system is that full functionality cannot be achieved since these elements are unable to communicate effectively.

When it comes to safeguarding the mining industry, there’s no easy way out. There are a host of unique problems that drive security and surveillance requirements on mining sites.

While school and university campuses should provide a safe and collaborative environment for learning and excellence, they have regrettably also become targets for violent crime.

While surveillance has become a key component in security and operations management, a truly integrated security system requires that all aspects of the security system work seamlessly together, while being managed by the heart of the system, which is the control room. Working in a 24/7 security control room environment demands a lot of physical and mental commitment from operators. Thankfully several security product providers are designing and manufacturing products that reduce the risk of human error while enhancing the control room operators’ working environment. Real-time information followed by prompt decision-making and immediate action can make all the difference, which is why sophisticated video management software is central to the control room environment and its operators. The true power of a surveillance system, and what it can offer in terms of security, operations and infrastructure management becomes even more apparent when combined with sophisticated video management software,” says Gus Brecher, managing director of Cathexis Africa and business development director of Cathexis Technologies.Details
