Traka shines bright with integrated solutions at IFSEC International 2019

Traka proved its credentials as a global solutions provider at IFSEC International 2019 in London last week, taking the opportunity to present its bespoke solutions and latest innovative technical development and demonstrate its integration with leading access control providers. 

On Stand IF105 at London’s ExCeL, the specialist in intelligent management solutions for keys and equipment showcased its latest generation TrakaWEB software and its ability to offer remote administration, including faulty item exchange, fleet management and full audit control capability.

Steve Bumphrey, Traka’s UK sales director, commented: “The Traka stand created a real buzz at IFSEC 2019. Our new proposition as a global solutions provider enabled us to display powerful R&D capability, with TrakaWEB being a prime example of presenting a connected future with management tools for the protection of essential assets.”

Bumphrey continued: “Visitors to the stand were really enthusiastic about how Traka is helping to drive integration without compromising quality. The feedback and number of sectors showing interest highlighted our ability to offer bespoke solutions to suit individual market requirements. We’re looking forward to continuing discussions and further demonstrating Traka’s impressive management solutions.”

At ExCeL, Traka also held live displays of its latest system offerings, including specialist modular lockers. Bespoke in design, they’ve been created to manage different types of equipment such as body-worn cameras, which are increasingly being adopted by a number of sectors and are often required to be instantly available for use in fast-developing situations.

Traka’s dedicated integration zone showcased the ability to meet individual customer requirements and demonstrated asset return assurance in a seamless access control process.

Traka demonstrated its key management portfolio, including the L-Touch, S-Touch and M-Touch solutions designed to offer simple ways in which to control keys and manage different facilities, including full and compliant audit trail capability of keys and users.

Bumphrey concluded: “IFSEC International was a great success for Traka. It was an ideal opportunity for us to present our latest product and service solutions and also highlight our expertise as a team, both from a technical and market-led sales perspective. The next stage is to deliver on our conversations with end users and prove that we really are local when you need us and global when it counts.”

IDIS determined to focus on video cyber security at IFSEC International 2019

Network security and the threat of ‘cyber loopholes’ should be a top priority for video surveillance users, IDIS will tell visitors at IFSEC International. Launching a cyber security advisory video ahead of the show, the IDIS team at ExCeL in London from 18-20 June will also be on hand to demonstrate and explain how IDIS technology goes a step further to strengthen the resilience of traditional surveillance network processes.

IDIS will be highlighting the dangers of cyber attacks and the common vulnerabilities found in many surveillance set-ups – as well as showcasing a full range counter-measures – on Stand IF1110.

Users should plan for three specific risks, states the company: data access loopholes, data transmission weaknesses and the integrity of recorded footage.

“IDIS has consistently led the way in addressing cyber security concerns, taking a multi-pronged approach from R&D through to customer installation,” said James Min, managing director of IDIS Europe. “We’ve developed a rich, layered and comprehensive set of technologies and features to ensure maximum protection for end users.”

Visitors will see how IDIS DirectIP – the cornerstone of the IDIS Total Solution – closes-up widespread vulnerabilities and serves as a proprietary mutual authentication system for all IDIS IP products. IDIS DirectIP speeds up implementations and streamlines cyber security by eliminating the need for engineers to manage multiple IP addresses and associated passwords during implementation. It therefore mitigates human error and the common malpractice of saving passwords in vulnerable spreadsheets.

Using peer-to-peer technology, IDIS’ ‘For Every Network’ technology also lets engineers deploy and configure secure, multi-site surveillance solutions that use centralised monitoring and control without in-depth knowledge of routing or networking.

IDIS will also highlight the cyber security essentials for transmission and recording together with its own patented and proprietary technologies which prevent activities such as snooping, modification and the destruction of data.

In addition, visitors to Stand IF1110 will learn how IDIS ensures the integrity of video recording, with its advanced ‘Chained Fingerprint’ technology authenticating footage such that it can be submitted to the police and the courts as evidence.

“Combined with these technologies, our industry-leading training programmes are helping installers and integration partners to work knowledgeably with devices and networks to ensure maximum cyber security for our end users,” concluded Min.
