The 2018 Security Exhibition & Conference will open next Wednesday at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. At a point in time when security technology and methodology is evolving at an unprecedented rate, the southern hemisphere’s largest security event stands as the crucible for cutting edge solutions and tomorrow’s technology.
The 2018 ASIAL Conference which runs alongside the Security Exhibition, will feature speakers from the highest echelons of security around the globe, including representatives from Israel, Belgium, and several leading local thought-leaders.
New to the Security Exhibition in 2018, the Seminar Theatre promotes a more granular approach to educational sessions, introducing a wide-ranging series of topics that will inform systems integrators and installers on the very latest technology and threat reduction techniques. The seminars will address data storage, licensing and regulations, biometrics developments, lock picking and many more key industry issues and technological advancements, all delivered by industry specialists.
The Exhibition will feature more than 170 vendors this year including many of the world's leading and most recognised companies, as well as the very latest innovators and security start-ups.
Hourly drone displays will feature flight, video and functionality demonstrations in the new CSD Drone Demonstration Zone
Cutting-edge technology from vendors will include NoahFace facial recognition software, a locally-conceived solution that allows advanced facial recognition technology to run on any iOS device, bringing new levels of security to any size of business.
“Noahface is the latest in access control, offering new levels of convenience and security. It is a perfect solution for SMBs who want secure premises without the cost of a large access control environment, as it can be deployed on existing iPads and iOS devices,” said Geoff Cropley, founder and CEO at Noahface.
Tyco’s new wireless intrusion detection and home automation solution, iotega, will also debut at the event. Based on PowerG wireless technology, iotega offers smarter home security, including the flexibility to start with a fully encrypted security-only package which can be upgraded at any time to add cameras and smart lights, thermostats, power sockets and door locks.
World-leaders in security fogging, Fog Bandit add their solution to the mix this year, with the catch-phrase: “You can’t steal what you can’t see”. Following activation of the intruder alarm the very dense fog deploys, obscuring at-risk property and goods.
In robbery situations the fog instantly removes threats to staff and customers. Fog Bandit is 100 percent harmless and is an effective deterrent in a wide variety of situations, right up to aggressive ram-raid attacks.
There will be regular demonstrations of Fog Bandit at the event.
Genetec will demonstrate its unified, open architecture, IP security platform, Security Center(5.7) with cybersecurity protections and a new reporting feature that automatically alerts system administrators to outdated camera firmware. The company will showcase features of its Synergis access control system that bridges access control and intrusion monitoring, as well as new models of the Genetec™ Streamvault network security appliance product line, with local support and streamlined software update delivery for the ANZ region.
The Genetec Trust Center will also be promoted at the event, which is a repository of educational materials focused on cybersecurity, privacy and risk analysis, created to help systems integrators and customers understand best practices for keeping people and organisations safe from cyber espionage, hacking, and unauthorised takeovers.
The company will also show industry specific applications Traffic Sense™ and Airport Sense™ that provide collaborative insights and intelligence to meet the explicit needs of cities and airports. Genetec will be at Stand #D8.
The Security Exhibition & Conference is an opportunity for professionals to discover the absolute latest in security technology, hear from many of the leading voices in the global security community, and network with peers from across the security spectrum.
