Full security solution for Garanti

November 2016 Access Control & Identity Management, Integrated Solutions

GarantiBank is one of Turkey’s largest private banks, with an established history dating back to 1946. The bank’s dynamic employees, its customer-centric approach, its innovative products and services, all establish Garanti’s pioneering position in the Turkish banking sector. Garanti’s successful, solid and consistent performance makes it a ‘universal bank’ well recognised around the globe.

GarantiBank Romania

In 2009, GarantiBank was authorised access to the Romanian market by the National Bank of Romania, becoming operational by the end of May 2010. GarantiBank is a universal bank offering a large range of products and services to all business segments. In Romania, GarantiBank benefits from the support of its established international and Turkish operation.

Pre-existing situation

Like most banks, GarantiBank pays special attention to the safety and security of its assets, but more importantly, that of its employees and clients. In order to build a robust and reliable security solution, GarantiBank started looking for a solution that would offer access control, intrusion and fire detection and video surveillance. Looking at the different options in the market, UTC Fire & Security was selected as its manufacturer of choice throughout Romania. After evaluating the current lay-out of the sites, local UTC Fire & Security installers began with the implementation of a full-blown solution.

UTC solution

GarantiBank’s Romanian sites have been equipped with UTC Fire & Security’s ATS Master control panels, covering intrusion detection and access control. Over 150 ATS panels have been installed, connecting approximately 1400 intrusion detectors and 600 badge readers. In addition to this, a fire detection system has been installed, supported by over 1500 heat and smoke detectors.

To complete the system, more than 100 of UTC Fire & Security’s TruVision digital video recorders now provide video surveillance. While in the past each site was managed independently, GarantiBank Romania’s central security operations is now equipped with UTC Fire & Security’s Alliance security management tool. This software tool allows security personnel to monitor, operate and maintain all aspects of the UTC Fire & Security, security solution. This solution allows GarantiBank Romania to optimise its security operations, while increasing safety and privacy.
