Intellect in the KIT Finance bank


A security system based on the Intellect platform has been installed at the Renaissance Plaza branch of the IT Finance bank.

Business centers like Renaissance Plaza draw in multitudes of people. It is a very demanding and yet challenging job to guarantee security for such premises. The multifunctional Intellect software platform, with a plethora of great facilities that enable to develop efficient integrated security systems, rose to the occasion.


IT Finance bank is an independent Russian investment bank, providing companies, financial institutions and private investors with investment-banking and financial services. The bank was founded in November 2001 by a handful of executives, steeped in the lore of investment companies and Russian banks. They were united by the idea to create an independent investment bank for Russian investors.

The St. Petersburg office of IT Finance is located in the Renaissance Plaza business center one of the largest A-class compounds in St. Petersburg. The office occupies the whole of building B of the business center, i.e. stretches over nearly one third of the facility.


KIT FinanceThe customer was interested in the installation of a reliable security system that would contribute to a modern well-appointed office and enable the staff to function in a comfortable and secure environment.

It was important to lay out a system, combining the main monitoring, control and security components, i.e. video surveillance and intruder alarm system. The Axxon Intellect Enterprise platform proved to be the right solution.


Ravelin, a distributor of AxxonSoft equipment and its sci-tech partner, delivered the Intellect platform to RTA Engineering for installation and provided technical support and advice on site. Juri Kalinin, a specialist in video surveillance computer systems with Ravelin believes, that it is the Intellects flexibility and cross-platform versatility that has made it possible to solve the task, set by the customer, both efficiently and quickly.

It should be noted, that the system based on the Intellect platform, which we have installed at the customers office, is not simple at all. Video surveillance and an intruder alarm are intertwined into a single solution. Seven Intellect based servers were installed, six of which make up the video surveillance system and one operates the intruder alarm system. All the servers share a common database. This makes the control of the security system all the more effective and user-friendly, said Viacheslav Vasilenko, a computer security system engineer from RTA Engineering.


The customer is satisfied with the security system installed at the office. Steady and efficient performance, high-quality video, control over the archive size, where one can instantaneously locate the required video footage, a common interface to manage all the systems, great capabilities of the system to be scaled up and integrated to name only a few benefits for KIT Finance.
