Financial Institutions

Whether you’re a top financial institution or an independent bank with fewer than 10 branches, you need a physical security system that gives you full control over video surveillance and access control as well as a global view of all your sites. Rely on Genetec IP security solutions to:

  • Identify threats
  • Reduce fraud losses
  • Close cases faster
  • Centrally manage security at every branch

With a clear migration path to IP technology, our solutions allow you to keep existing investments while benefitting from advancements in physical security systems.

Where banks used to focus on preventing and solving loss resulting from robbery or other similar crimes, today you are also concerned with fraud. In fact, loss due to fraud surpasses loss due to robbery in every way.

When it comes to closing fraud cases as quickly as possible, traditional video search methods and bandwidth can be prohibitive. Moving large amounts of data through a small network and then fast-forwarding and rewinding through raw video footage can become counterproductive. You need a solution that allows you to retrieve crucial evidence from any location quickly and painlessly to help speed up fraud investigations while keeping your employees, customers and assets secure.

Omnicast, the IP video management system (VMS) in Security Center, helps your team proactively manage risk and minimize loss. By allowing them to detect threats in real-time, instantly playback or forward video, search through video thumbnails, quickly compile and export evidence and protect evidence with advanced cybersecurity features, Omnicast helps your team prevent and solve both robbery and fraud cases. Watch this Omnicast video for a quick demo.

Invest in a reliable and flexible IP video system.
