Along with the variety of growing threats to African airports, and airports the world over, comes the demand for security measures that go beyond the conventional airport crime prevention system’s capabilities. The development of new and effective technological countermeasures enables modern security solutions to offer protection strategies that can mitigate both threats of crime and fire where they may encroach on such an institution.
Airports across South Africa are hives of activity, 24/7. They never sleep. That’s why superior security solutions become an imperative investment to ensure the safety of these vital gateways to South Africa and further afield.
With the proliferation of security criteria that modern airports have to adhere with today, airport security is more complex than ever before. In the face of these unprecedented demands, however, come even more unprecedented advances in the technology developed to address them.
Staying a step ahead is the best defence for any large-scale operation, which is why next-generation surveillance will always be on the top of the security measure checklist for any airports. Where surveillance used to be valuable to the aftermath of any airport crime incidence, with today’s advanced analytic software, it becomes equally valuable for crime prevention.
Complemented by other security measures like biometric access control, the body of security threats to airports can be curtailed. Meeting the demands of providing effective, yet user-friendly security to a perpetually growing public sector in South Africa, as well as over the whole continent, manifests in the development of a technology that can accurately record and manage access to an institution and, according to a recent study, unauthorised access tops the list of airport security threats today.
