Genetec Announces Security Essen 2018 Show Lineup

Placing a strong emphasis on privacy and cybersecurity, Genetec will showcase its unified security platform, Genetec Security Center, along with purpose-built security infrastructure appliances, and 11 technology partners at the biggest security conference in Germany

DÜSSELDORF, August 22, 2018 - Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a manufacturer of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, today announced its show lineup for Security Essen 2018. In its 21st year of delivering global innovation for physical IP security, Genetec will demonstrate Security Center, its scalable, open-architecture security platform that unifies video surveillance, access control, automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), communications, and analytics. Genetec will also feature its family of security infrastructure appliances and will host 11 industry technology partners on its stand—all demonstrating their technology integrations and support for Security Center.

Security
Visitors will be able to see the latest features in Security Center (v5.7), including its IP video management system (VMS), designed to scale and adapt to the evolving needs of the security market. This latest version also features enhanced privacy protection, designed to help end-users comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) data privacy and confidentiality mandates, along with a new reporting feature that automatically alerts system administrators to outdated camera firmware.

Genetec will demonstrate its StreamvaultTM turnkey security infrastructure appliances, pre-installed with Security Center to offer a simplified software delivery system. In addition to video surveillance, access control, and ANPR support, Streamvault also now provides certified performance with KiwiVisionTM Privacy ProtectorTM-a core module in Security Center-that dynamically anonymizes video to support GDPR compliance for public and private video surveillance environments. Genetec will also demonstrate how customers can easily migrate their legacy access control systems to a unified Security Center platform.  

Privacy & Cybersecurity
Committed to maintaining the highest levels of privacy protection, Genetec continues to inform IT and security professionals on both cybersecurity and privacy practices. Genetec has recently launched the Genetec Trust Center, a central repository of educational materials focused on cybersecurity, privacy, and security-of-security topics to help system integrators and end-users mitigate risks via trusted best practices.    

"With our growing presence in Germany, Genetec is happy to bring its many innovations to Security Essen this year. We will show our customers and partners how they can unify their security platforms into a scalable model that offers one solution through a single interface for improved operational efficiency, adhering to the highest standards of GDPR-compliant data privacy," said Nick D'Hoedt, Regional Manager Benelux and DACH, Genetec.  "We're also proud to welcome 11 of our top technology partners from our growing ecosystem of camera, access control, sensing and software vendors," added D'hoedt.   

Operations
Also on display at the Genetec stand will be Genetec Mission ControlTM, a collaborative decision and event management software that provides organizations with new levels of situational intelligence, visualization, and complete incident management capabilities.   

Genetec Partner Pavilion
Genetec will host 11 of its technology partners in individual demo pods on the stand at Security Essen.  Each partner will demonstrate their hardware and software integrations with Security Center.
