Avocado Security Unveils Security & BI Platform

Avocado Security today announced the availability of its Version 2.0 Security & Business Intelligence (BI) Optimization Platform. Avocado Security’s new technology delivers BI with security images by taking the video images from surveillance cameras and translating them into intelligent, usable, business data and statistics.

ebizQ received the following:

Avocado Security’s product suite will be showcased during the annual ISC West trade show at booth number 74120 from April 2nd through 4th.

“Our technology automates the way we look at millions of security images,” said Kevin Shahbazi, CEO of Avocado Security. “We translate security camera footage into meaningful information, including graphs, charts, and BI. So now instead of security personnel just seeing “dumb data” from numerous images across video monitors, they can actually have a solution that gives them “intelligent data” so that actionable, real-time security decisions can be made.”

A key advantage of Avocado Security’s technology is that it can convert video images from the existing security equipment that comes from one vendor, or from multiple equipment vendors (GE, Honeywell, Bosch, Siemens etc.) and translate those images into usable data. Examples of data that can be provided include, the number of times an elevator door opened, or a high level of traffic at a particular entrance or exit, or, if more traffic is at the loading dock of a hotel than at the front entrance lobby. By looking at security monitors and images alone, such information cannot be extracted.

Frost & Sullivan, a leading analyst firm, notes that by 2010 video surveillance cameras will be a $4.09 billion market. However, even given society’s growing reliance on surveillance technologies, many organizations are still challenged by some very common frustrations that remain inherent in managing through video imaging, including cameras being misaligned or pointed in the wrong direction; the production of fuzzy imaging and blobs in the video footage; the equipment not functioning; or the disconnection of camera equipment (by an intruder, disgruntled employee or by accident). But now if equipment is misaligned, disconnected, or malfunctioning, Avocado Security’s technology can instantly send alerts about the malfunction so that adjustments can be made to the security system almost immediately.

“When video surveillance security images are not consistently accessible, the entire operation may be compromised. This may be due to the fact that cameras or DVRs have stopped recording or were misaligned well before an incident took place,” said Shahbazi. “Avocado Security’s optimization platform immediately alerts to such serious security short comings so that adjustments can be made without significant delays.”

Avocado Security’s technologies can also integrate an organization’s security platform across multiple locations, and can showcase the security details of each location by generating daily, weekly and monthly status reports, empowering security personnel with the information and knowledge that is needed to better manage all of their security needs –in multiple locations. This new technology brings about innovative security and productivity measures for clients who desire to improve their security, operation and IT infrastructure.
