Goods can be stolen at any stage of their manufacture and distribution, usually by employees, and there are fewer technology solutions geared toward theft along the supply chain. In fact, some distribution centres, even those operated by major players in the business, have no technology at the exits to screen employees and detect theft. Loss prevention personnel have to rely on their ability to detect &ldquo;lumps and bumps&rdquo; as the only deterrent.</p> <p><strong>Detection of infrared (IR) heat signatures</strong></p> <p>Providing a technology solution for this market is <a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/companies/company-listing/iscon-imaging.html" class="blue_bold">ISCON...How video storage ensures critical data isn’t losthttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-10265-ga-co-6218-ga-co-7870-ga.17681.htmlhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-10265-ga-co-6218-ga-co-7870-ga.17681.htmlExpert CommentaryFri, 22 May 2015 08:00:00 GMT<table style="width: 246px; height: 323px;" border="0" cellspacing="8" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="smalltxt" valign="top" align="center"><strong>The fundamental value of data is widely apparent in modern society, and its loss may have significant consequences</strong></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>Video data is critical to today&rsquo;s enterprise.
