Solutions & Applications:
The Unique Needs of Large Enterprise/Government
Government entities and large companies that have grown to take up whole buildings or campuses in multiple locations see their security risks multiply accordingly. Arecont Vision understands the unique needs of these high profile multi-faceted organizations and provides megapixel technology to specifically meet those needs.
Large Enterprise/Government Security
Organizations, regardless of industry, generally strive to reduce costs in every facet of internal operations. Security has always been a visible target for cost reduction because it is not viewed as revenue producing and there is difficulty in demonstrating ROI. An information security risk may have physical security ramifications and vice versa. A comprehensive look at all identified risks can assist in determining mitigation strategies.
The Unique Needs of Healthcare
Preserving patient confidentiality, safeguarding prescription medications and protecting patients and highly-skilled staff are just three of the security needs faced by those in the healthcare industry. Arecont Vision understands the unique needs of this market and provides megapixel technology to specifically meet those needs.
In August, 2010, a new survey of healthcare security executives by the International Association for Healthcare Security & Safety (IAHSS) reveals increases in reported violent crimes in hospitals in 2009 compared to similar crimes reported in a survey five years ago.
Although overall crime in hospitals increased by 75% in 2009 compared to 2004, the survey reported that in four categories of violent crime (rape/sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault) it increased by 200%. In the five non-violent crime categories, which account for 76% of all hospital crime (burglary, larceny, arson, vandalism, and motor vehicle theft), the survey reported a 54% increase in crime incidents compared to 2004.
The Unique Needs of Logistics
Goods fuel the global economy. The loading, unloading and transit of goods require advanced and cost-effective security solutions. Arecont Vision understands the unique needs of the transportation and warehousing market and provides megapixel technology to specifically meet those needs.
Trucking and shipping terminals are often located in industrial parks or suburban areas that are open and challenging to protect. This increases the number of security threats posed to trucking and shipping companies, including vandalism/graffiti and perimeter protection.
Shipping locations, trucks, equipment, parked trailers and shipping containers are susceptible to criminal and unruly behavior and often targets for vandals and pranks. Video surveillance is a good tool to deter these activities and helps authorities prosecute offenders. Perimeter protection and intrusion sensors are key technologies to protect trucks and containers from external damage when in the facility. Access control systems protect employees and cargo from unauthorized intrusions and help protect the facility.
The Unique Needs of Education
Whether in a neighborhood school or across a large university campus, the surveillance needs of those in the education market are specific and acute. Arecont Vision understands the unique needs of education and provides megapixel technology to specifically meet those needs.
During the 2007–08 school year, 85 percent of public schools recorded that one or more incidents of violence, theft or other crimes, had taken place, amounting to an estimated 2.0 million crimes.
