Through an exclusive agreement, Orion Entrance Control, Inc. (Orion) is now offering a unique new entrance control system that enhances security and monitoring at any doorway within a building where access is a security concern. The new DoorGuard system, which utilises LIDAR (light detection and ranging) technology that is a key component in autonomous motor vehicles, will be featured in Orion’s booth 521, at the GSX Global Security Exchange in Las Vegas September 25 through 27. Orion is a leading U.S. owned and operated manufacturer and global provider of optical SpeedLane turnstile solutions. The core component of the DoorGuard system is the S3 sensor developed by Quanergy, a company that was the first to patent solid state LIDAR. Orion has been selected as the preferred S3 vendor for the security sector. This small solid-state sensor is ideal for applications requiring object detection at doorways and entry locations. DoorGuard’s accuracy and performance It is the most effective, easiest to install and affordable system on the market to control access entrances and exits" DoorGuard leapfrogs existing technology for accuracy and performance and can be added into current security systems. The DoorGuard unit is mounted above a door and integrates to the access system and Orion’s proprietary Infinity software. The LIDAR smart sensing technology generates half-million data points per second with signal processors that calculate the Time-of-Flight (TOF) of each light pulse. The end result is significantly more accuracy that protects points of entry from unauthorised access. "We are very pleased to be the preferred vendor for Quanergy’s S3 sensor and are using this disruptive technology as a key component of our new DoorGuard system. This enabled us to build a ‘better mousetrap’ that is a significant upgrade from the beam-based systems currently in use. It is the most effective, easiest to install and affordable system on the market to control access entrances and exits. We can overlay this on anyone’s system to provide a higher level of security and occupancy counting," said Stephen Caroselli, CEO of Orion. Prevention of unauthorised access Today’s solutions typically feature a row of sensors secured onto a door frame and they can be very inaccurate" The Quanergy S3 sensor communicates directly with Orion’s technology systems and the Infinity Remote Lane Control software to link to perimeter doors and stairwells. It is designed to detect one credit per person and deter common ways other systems can be tricked to allow unauthorised access. It can detect people trying to enter a building by following someone very closely (tailgating) and can set off warnings if a door is open for too long or has been propped open. Additionally, in emergency situations when access points need to be open, DoorGuard can accurately count the number of authorized individuals who pass through, enabling first responders to know if people still remain in buildings or sections where there is limited access. "Accuracy in a security system is critical. Today’s solutions typically feature a row of sensors secured onto a door frame and they can be very inaccurate. Other more accurate alternatives are more cumbersome, more expensive and do not get to the level of accuracy the LIDAR technology can offer. We’re excited to roll out this disruptive technology at the GSX event," Caroselli said. Other DoorGuard features include the following: Works in any lighting setting, detection system is not affected by dynamic lighting Uses 3D imaging sensors to detect size of user Ability to classify complex details, including user Works independently and in the background Not affected by weather - applicable for outdoor usage
ExtraHop, global provider of analytics for security, is upending the SOC status quo at the Black Hat USA 2018 Conference. The company will be showcasing its Reveal(x) network traffic analytics (NTA) solution at Booth 1004, demonstrating how real-time analytics and machine learning eliminate the dark space within the enterprise. ExtraHop has received industry recognition from Gartner, EMA, and Ovum as these and other major industry organisations recognise the need for NTA at enterprise scale. Black Hat USA 2018 The ExtraHop booth at Black Hat USA will feature a series of industry thought leadership presentations from Phantom, Ixia, and others speaking on the rapidly emerging role of NTA in the enterprise SOC, the importance of TLS 1.3 decryption for security visibility, and the power of orchestration automation. Special sessions will occur throughout the day at Booth 1004 on August 8 and 9, 2018. "Security teams are drowning in alerts and many are left without the resources they need to stay ahead of attackers," said Bryce Hein, SVP of Marketing at ExtraHop. "Threat hunting in the modern attack landscape is not possible without enterprise-class network traffic analytics, making NTA a must-have for the modern enterprise SOC." Reveal(x) network traffic analytics ExtraHop Reveal(x) significantly reduces dwell time by highlighting late-stage attack activities and shining light on the darkspace in the enterprise ExtraHop Reveal(x) significantly reduces dwell time by highlighting late-stage attack activities and shining light on the darkspace in the enterprise—the hard-to-see areas of the network along the east-west corridor. Through comprehensive analysis of network traffic, Reveal(x) automatically identifies attack behavior, delivering high-fidelity insights into threats to critical assets. By merging insights into investigative workflows, Reveal(x) helps security operations teams shrink detection and response times, disrupt threat activity, and identify ways to reduce the attack surface. Analyst Recognition ExtraHop was listed as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner "Hype Cycle for Threat-Facing Technologies, 2018" report. ExtraHop was named in the Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) category. According to the Gartner report, "NTA solutions are valuable tools that assist network security professionals in the detection of compromised endpoints and targeted attacks that have not been seen in the past. These tools have limited blocking ability, or none at all (because they are implemented outside of the line of traffic), but they are effective in shortening the incident response window and reducing the dwell time of malware." The recent analyst report from EMA titled: Radar Report for Network-Based Security Analytics: Q3 2018 identified ExtraHop Reveal(x) as a ‘Value Leader’ and ‘Vendor to Watch,’ noting that, ‘Reveal(x) exhibited strong functionality due to its impressive feature differentiation, out-of-box reporting, and high-performance sustained data capture and processing.’ Leading European analyst group Ovum touted Reveal(x) in a recent report stated, “It analyzes all network interactions, applying machine learning to detect abnormal behavior, and then automates basic functions to streamline threat investigations. The launch of Reveal(x) takes ExtraHop into the network detection and response (NDR) market.” Customers Choose Reveal(x) Global 2000 customers are already using ExtraHop Network Traffic Analytics to modernise their programs and protect their enterprises Global 2000 customers are already using ExtraHop Network Traffic Analytics to modernise their programs and protect their enterprises.
