Disrupting Physical Security through Digitalization and IoT

Session Abstract:

Protecting people, locations and assets is a critical part of any enterprise. Robust security surveillance systems are often inadequate or cost prohibitive, especially when it comes to locations with large square footage, very active foot traffic, or a high volume of transient visitors such as corporate campuses, event venues, transportation hubs and shopping malls.

Luckily, we live in a world where everything and everyone is connected. Every person today emits and leaves behind a “digital footprint” that when combined with location, time and camera data, can be utilized to enhance premise security and safety. Today’s IoT solutions offer peace of mind to facility managers, security guards, and corporations across the globe.
