Company aims to meet growing demand from MEA region's retail, and transportation sectors
Genetec Inc. (Genetec), a leading provider of open-architecture, unified IP security solutions, has announced that it will be showcasing high-end security and surveillance systems at the 2017 edition of Intersec, the world’s leading trade fair for security, safety and fire protection, which will be held from January 22 to January 24, 2017 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC). The company has expressed its confidence in meeting the growing demand in the Middle East region’s retail and transportation segments—leveraging the integrated security platform that it has developed to meet the needs of all sectors of the industry. Genetec’s stand will be located at Stand J38, Hall S1 inside the DICEC.
According to global analysts Frost & Sullivan, the spending in the region's physical security market has increased and is expected to reach USD 10.2 billion in the next four years, which makes up at least 10 per cent of the global market. Genetec aims to address the growing market demand for IP access control, video surveillance and automated number plate solutions. The company has also noted that physical security solutions like intruder alarms, electronic locks, perimeter protection, door alarms, access control protocols and identification systems are in high demand. One of the company's core showcase at the event will be its decision support system, Mission Control, which provides organizations with new levels of situational intelligence, visualization, and complete incident management capabilities. It allows security personnel to make the right decision when faced with routine tasks or unanticipated situations by ensuring a timely flow of information.
