Intelligent GSOC and More: The trends that shaped ISC West 2019

The ISC West 2019 Security Conference at the Las Vegas Sands Expo might be over but we are far over from reeling under its effects. Some of the best technologies came together to exhibit and thousands of interested prospects wanted to get a bite of the security experience. This year Vidsys partnered with Micro Focus, a company that specializes in artificial intelligence and machine learning analytics, to develop a live demo of our joint ‘Intelligent GSOC’ offering. The innovative solution was on display at multiple pods in our co-sponsored booth and gave visitors a first-hand look at what an AI-powered, Intelligent Global Security Operations Center (GSOC) would look like. The demonstration showcased some of our best use cases while at the same time gave us a chance to hear from prospects directly and discuss their specific needs. Below is a compilation of the trends that the market is looking to accomplish in the near future.

Intelligent GSOC

The Global Security Operation Center (GSOC) was a hot topic at ISC West. Working jointly with Micro Focus, Vidsys leverages the external data sources in gathering ‘extra’ intelligence about an event, individual or specified area and enhance the overall situational awareness capabilities of a security officer or operations center. The ‘Intelligent GSOC’ is an extension to a regular GSOC environment where operators have traditionally used physical security systems to gather actionable intelligence of a situation or event. When it comes to investing in a GSOC, companies can derive real value by converging all the systems available through Vidsys’ CSIM platform to benefit the entire organization in the long run.

Video Analytics

Another trend that we witnessed this year, and what many prospects seem to desire in their security environment, was an increased focus on analytics. Having a way to automatically detect suspected individuals outside a corporate campus using facial recognition technology and get extra information about their recent past activities in the online world is a game changer. Our live demo at ISC West effectively showed how a converged system could utilize and apply video analytics tools in a real-world setting.

New CSIM Markets

With security needs constantly emerging and changing, there isn’t a clear native CSIM solution in Australia and New Zealand that can meet and fulfill all the region’s requirements. Oceania is predominantly served by vendors, consultants and system integrators that are looking for a holistic solution to meet their client’s security challenges. After discussions with key regional players at ISC West, we believe there are a lot of opportunities arising in the region. Our experiences at the show confirmed that the capabilities of our CSIM solution go above and beyond what’s currently being offered in these markets.

RSS and Social Media

Social media has become an increasingly important aspect of everyday life. From Facebook, Instagram to Twitter, we receive social media data in many forms. This data can absolutely be leveraged to enable better situation management. During the show, we had several inquiries about the ways in which our software platform utilizes Social Media data. Vidsys successfully demonstrated how our software platform incorporates RSS and social media alerts into its platform, correlates this data and serves as a proactive alerting security system that companies today in the ‘social age’ can easily rely on.
