Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a provider of open architecture security and public safety solutions, will be highlighting solutions that can help address the challenges presented by the changing nature of cyber threats and hazards in sub-Saharan Africa during its participation at its first Securex, Africa’s leading security and fire exhibition. Taking place from 30 May to 1 June 2017, at Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand, Genetec looks forward to sharing how the company effectively protects the everyday. Taking strategic and timely moves to expand its market leading presence in sub-Saharan Africa, Genetec recognises the significance of the market. In Hall 2, Stand D05, Genetec will present its latest open-architecture, unified IP security solutions.
During the three-day event, Genetec will provide a concentrated focus on security and analytics solutions for key industry verticals like government, retail, transportation, and oil & gas. Genetec will bring its well-trained team to demonstrate that it has the best security solutions to meet the needs of the growing market, and help address the specific needs and demands for flexible, reliable and future-proof security solutions.
“Genetec’s participation at our first Securex demonstrates our eagerness to realise potential opportunities in the African market and to increase awareness on the level of commitment we exert in protecting organisations and their security systems, people, data and assets,” says Brent Cary, regional sales manager, Genetec. “At the event, we will present our wide range of solutions that provide the highest level of ‘cybersecurity’ and ‘hardening’ measures against cyber hacking and internal employee authorisation and authentication. These advanced solutions can play a significant role in the efforts to deal with the changing nature of cyber threats and hazards.”
Genetec will showcase its decision support system, Mission Control—a set of solutions that can provide organisations with new levels of situational intelligence, visualisation, and complete incident management and ‘post event’ evaluation capabilities. Mission Control enables security personnel to make strategic decisions when faced with routine tasks or key situations and ensure the continuing and timely flow of information. The company will also showcase Security Center 5.6, this new version of Security Center comes with additional cybersecurity measures, a new HTML5-based web client, integration of SimonsVoss electronic locks and the Mercury Security MS Bridge, and the ability to enroll license plates as access control credentials with the AutoVu SharpV camera.
Additionally, Genetec will also highlight Genetec Retail Sense, wherein retailers can use their existing security infrastructure to gather valuable business analytics data to help transform the customer experience, by maximising time staff spends with shoppers to reduce abandonment; boosting display and promotion effectiveness to drive traffic and tailoring product placement and store layout to shopper preferences. Retail Sense presents a key line of core modules like visitor counting, conversion rates, queue management, heat maps, directional analysis and face capture. Utilising Retail Sense will allow retailers to unlock the intelligence that allows them to better understand consumers, make real-time informed decisions and increase both consumer engagement and in-store profitability.
“We are looking forward to meeting the attendees and participants at Securex 2017, giving us the opportunity to share how we are helping customers unify and simplify the many parts of physical security through an expanding ecosystem of hardware and software support,” says Cary.
