Revolutionizing Trade-Related Surveillance with SURVEIL-X

NICE Actimize’s next-generation SURVEIL-X solution fundamentally changes surveillance detection to help FSOs detect all forms of risky behavior and better comply with global regulations. Traditional surveillance technology is adept at detecting obvious market abuse, but it doesn’t commonly address the ‘unknowns.’ That’s why regulators around the globe are adopting next generation surveillance technology in growing numbers, and advising financial services organizations (FSOs) to do the same. To meet this demand, NICE Actimize has introduced SURVEIL-X, the industry’s first AI-powered, cloud-native, true holistic trade-related surveillance solution that detects all forms of…

Securing IP Surveillance Cameras in the IoT Ecosystem

The security for devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) has been a hot topic, and Internet Protocol (IP) surveillance cameras, in particular, have been the subject of growing scrutiny. IP cameras have become a top target for hackers because of their relatively high computing power and good internet traffic throughput. A case in point was the incident toward the end of 2016 where a Linux-based botnet called Mirai was used to facilitate the largest distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack in history. As a result, packet flow experienced outbursts of up…

ACTIONABLE VIDEO INTELLIGENCE

Traditional CCTV systems use a set of cameras and a local network to connect these cameras to a video management software. The video management system typically runs on a network video recorder (NVR) or a digital video recorder (DVR). The fundamental difference between the two – NVR records IP cameras while DVR records analog cameras connected via coaxial cables, hence a DVR system would not require a network but connect cameras to the DVR as point to point connections. In traditional CCTV system, monitoring is done by using a central…

Securing ATMs 24/7 with Intelligent Security Technology

ATMs have become a cornerstone for the day-to-day life of millions, but they are vulnerable to attacks. The global ATM Industry Association has reported a 12% increase in ATM crimes during 2017. Attacks often involve ATM users, potentially injuring them, and thereby causing them trauma. Since ATMs are mostly situated outside buildings and are made for use at all times of day and night, securing them is a challenge – and therefore banks are turning to more intelligent solutions. An outdoor vulnerability According to ATM Industry Association (ATMIA), there is…
