Streamlining security operations in the financial industry

April 2024 Products & Solutions

In the banking and financial industry, false alarms can lead to significant financial implications and operational disruptions for security companies. Unnecessary responses to high-risk commercial sites with valuable assets can result in costly mistakes and inefficiencies.

To address this challenge, monitoring and response companies in the banking sector should invest in advanced platforms that eliminate false alarms and empower operators to make better decisions regarding alarms and responses.

Secutel Technologies offers a solution with its Visual Verifier (VV) technology, which is specifically designed to protect businesses and is deployed successfully in the banking sector.

VV is an effective intrusion detection solution that accommodates low bandwidth and power usage, making it suitable even for remote sites. When triggered, the camera captures multiple snapshots, which are sent to the control room for verification, ensuring genuine activations and assessing the level of risk. This helps security companies coordinate responses effectively to reduce potential risks and protect client assets.

The VV platform integrates with Secutel's SecuVue, a cloud-based video surveillance system, enhancing facial recognition capabilities and alerting relevant personnel of unauthorised access. Its applications in the banking industry include securing server rooms, retail stores, strong rooms, and banks.

Key features of VV include tamper detection, cell jamming detection, automated arming and disarming of sites, IP communications with backup SIM cards for failover, system health monitoring, battery backup, and remote configuration for 24/7 monitoring. Secutel's VV technology provides a comprehensive and reliable solution for ensuring security and minimising false alarms in the banking sector.
