The maritime industry is critical for global trade, transporting billions of dollars worth of goods each year across the world. An attack against an important seaport can have long-lasting economic impact for a country and its trading partners.
Seaports face multiple security and safety challenges; port employee jobs can be dangerous, involving the operation of large crane equipment and other heavy machinery, ports cover large geographical areas that include varied perimeters that cannot be secured in the same way as most perimeter security applications. For example, fences are not feasible on the waterside segment of a perimeter, lighting is often poor or unavailable and ports are often adjacent to public areas or neighbourhoods where pedestrian intruders can present both security and safety threats.
IntelexVision’s AI supported iSentry platform contributes to enhanced security and safety for seaports. Its wide area surveillance capability, combined with thermal image and PTZ analytics makes it ideal for a seaport environment. Learning and unusual behaviour detection capabilities can detect any suspicious movement in busy areas. iSentry’s advanced rules engine can handle complex situations and supports security control room operators in making immediate & correct operational decisions
