DUBAI, UAE: Genetec Inc. (Genetec), a leading provider of open-architecture, unified IP security solutions, has announced that it is highlighting the latest next generation security and access control solutions at the 36th edition of GITEX Technology Week, which will run until October 20, 2016 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The company is showcasing new features and advantages of its IP access control system, SynergisTM,’ which is part of Genetec’s continuing efforts to address incidents and security threats by empowering security operators with a forward-looking approach that unifies access control with video, communications management, intrusion, and more. In order to give visitors a clearer understanding of the new solution, the company has a demo booth located at their partner stand – HID Global, Hall 6 at the DWTC.
According to the company’s senior executives, today’s markets are veering away from traditional and outdated access control solutions and have now migrated to a more open and modern IP access control system–offering more technology options, greater scalability and seamless integration with existing business and security systems. The SynergisTM IP access control system (ACS) has been designed and engineered to meet the needs of modern and growing organizations, from controlling access to cardholder management, printing badges and conducting investigations.
Security experts today have lauded the new solution’s ability to manage all security facets, which in turn provides organizations and companies with much needed security and protections. Utilizing SynergisTM affords users with key benefits and advantages like threat level management; peer-to-peer communication; end-to-end encryption and advanced security privileges and partitioning.
“Historically, access control systems were concerned with securing access through a door or to a facility and managing access rights—from a vendor’s and end user’s perspective, the conversation on security ended there,” said Firas Jadalla, Regional Director – Middle East and Africa, Genetec. “Today, the security landscape has evolved and new threats, specifically cyber-security threats, have emerged. Access control system should not only secure doors, but it should itself be protected from cyber-attacks. During this year’s edition of GITEX, we are showcasing and demonstrating next generation technologies and trends that are shaping the physical security industry. We are looking forward to meeting potential customers from various industry verticals in the region.”
