Smart video surveillance system based on Axxon Intellect platform extended at Raiffeisen Bank Aval, Ukraine
In 2012, Raiffeisen Bank Aval, one of Ukraine's largest banks, embarked on a new direction in its Intellect-powered integrated security system. AxxonSoft and Raiffeisen Bank Aval have a long history of successful partnership dating back to April 2006, when Intellect was installed at three of the bank's headquarters buildings. Deployment was successful and thanks to the flawless performance of the surveillance platform, Axxon Intellect met all of the bank's security needs in full. Soon it was decided to widen Intellect use to 14 of the bank's regional branches.
Any bank is a special kind of institution, with a product that demands particular vigilance and security. A bank must have the trust and loyalty of its clients, who can rest assured that their savings are under careful guard. So the security system for a bank must be:
- comprehensive (defend not just central offices but also all branches, departments, and other affiliates),
- fault-tolerant and absolutely reliable,
- flexible and manageable from a central hub, and
- easily scalable (since the bank may be constantly opening new branches and installing new ATMs, etc.).
The Axxon Intellect Enterprise integrated security platform fit the bill precisely, having previously acquitted itself at Raiffeisen Bank Aval with flying colors. But the bank is continually growing and adding new branches, making it necessary to supplement and broaden the system. In essence, the bank needed to install a wide range of security hardware and then tie it together with Intellect software.
In 2010, Raiffeisen Bank Aval, AxxonSoft, and leading Ukrainian security systems integrator Istagroup joined forces to accomplish this strategic task. The security system needed to include all bank sites (branches, offices, ATMs, cash pickup/dropoff points, etc.) and allow managing them from a central hub. Currently the Intellect-based video management system protects 630 bank locations, with around 2,500 IP cameras and 9,500 analog cameras made by JVC, a long-time and reliable partner of AxxonSoft.
