2016 Security Trends to Follow

2016 Security Trends point to a more mobile and connected experience, ongoing advancements in privacy protection and broader adoption of best practices for solution deployment. Trends include:

Trend #1
‘Mobilising’ security will make it more pervasive and personalised: a new, more secure identity lifestyle will be built around the convenience of ever-present mobile devices. Computer and network logon, driver licences and other applications will more seamlessly join physical security functions on phones, tablets and laptops. Wearables will be the next step, and phones will also work with RFID tags to add security and trust to the IoT for proof-of-presence applications.

Trend #2
Security will move to a much greater focus on the user experience: This will help close the gap between planning and compliance, while ensuring that security adapts to rather than defines end-user habits and lifestyles. Old ways of authenticating will be replaced by more satisfying alternatives.

Trend #3
Secure, connected identities will fuel safety and innovation in how we work, shop and play: the industry will enter its next new chapter of connected identities, employing multi-layered security strategies that also include biometrics in order to bind these identities to their legitimate owners.

Trend #4
There will be more attention on privacy in an increasingly connected and mobile-first world: identity will expand beyond people and their personal identity to the identity of objects and their authenticity, accentuating the need to protect personal information across increasingly interconnected devices, services and applications.

Trend #5
Security policies and best practices will become as important as technology advances. The industry will sharpen its focus on not only what to deploy, but how – from the first US mobile driver licences to unified credential management systems that enable organisations to more holistically address both facility and information security. Rather than focus exclusively on preventing breaches, the industry will also adopt best practices for controlling what happens afterwards, so stolen identities are useless to thieves.

Offering supporting products to complete a turnkey solution, from: storage, optical, mobility, automation, analytics, networking equipment to full Integrated Video Management Systems.

More than just Surveillance

NUUO Intelligent Video Surveillance –
Halved false alarm, doubled accuracy

Surveillance cameras have become more and more popular nowadays. However, the main purpose for surveillance cameras still stays a forensic evidence tool. How to prevent property damage from happening, and how to use surveillance videos wisely are more important than just recording.

NUUO offers robust, feature rich IVS solution packages that are simple to set up and cost effective. NUUO IVS solution supports a variety of cameras, both IP and analog, and is also compatible with NUUO Mainconsole. With the most important business impacting features in mind, we packed features that will lower false alarms and raise detection accuracy. It even features self-learning algorithm for maximum adaptability to environmental changes for example ignoring swaying trees in the field of view. NUUO IVS engine can track, classify and analyze the behaviors of individuals or group of objects over long distances, to greatly improve parameter security and monitoring efficiency.

With an IVS in place, false alarms are no longer an issue for security guard and operator. High detection accuracy means high work efficiency. Operators will not waste their time on handling countless false alarms.

Are Integrated Security Solutions the answer to saver Cities & Businesses?

Surveillance cameras have become an integral component of any comprehensive security solution and are particularly applicable in city and central business district (CBD) scenarios where crime tends to be a more common occurrence. However, simply having cameras in place is not sufficient to either deter crime or catch the perpetrators after the fact.
As businesses grow, so do security needs. One location area may quickly evolve into a complex of buildings, workplaces, production sites and activities. Such expansion calls for regular and ongoing assessments of security risks and safety challenges.These structural and environmental changes may pose challenges for access control; monitoring movements of employees, visitors and contractors; defining boundaries for facilities and grounds; standardizing procedures and decision-making processes; and prioritizing resource allocations.

A fully integrated system is the ideal, but such a system begins by having the right security at every level of need. To achieve a fully integrated security system, consider these four primary levels of access management and control:
– Level 1 – Mechanical Access
– Level 2 – Electronic Access Control and Key Management
– Level 3 – Networked Access Control
– Level 4 – Facility Integration

At PRODIS we focus on offering tailored, supported solutions based on Industrial IP Surveillance and Hemispheric and Decentralized Technology. Offering supporting products to complete a turnkey solution, from: storage, optical, mobility, automation, analytics, networking equipment to full Integrated Video Management Systems.

What you should know about Video Management Software

Video Management Software (VMS) is sometimes referred to as NVR (Network Video Recorder) software. No matter what you call it, this software is primarily used to control and record video from IP cameras.

Since different Video Management Software supports different IP cameras, it is very important to select the video management software (VMS) before selecting your cameras. This allows you to select from the list of cameras supported by this software. Video management software provides three major functions:

1) Real-time video viewing
2) Recording Video
3) Automated notification of alarm conditions

Real time video viewing is usually used for catching shop lifters and other events that can be watched by security guards. It’s difficult to keep attention on many different video feeds so they only watch a few cameras at a time. In most applications the video is recorded and then reviewed after an incident occurs. The latest security systems use video analytics to notify the security person about an alarm condition.

Our mission is to develop, sell, and support innovative and advanced releases of Video Management Software, the most secure operating systems on the planet.
