The Middle East is proving to be a hot bed of business for global suppliers of security, safety, and fire protection, with the world’s top industry players all set to converge at Intersec 2019 in Dubai to drive more double digit growth. From video surveillance technologies with Artificial Intelligence and deep learning capabilities, to cloud-based access control solutions and flame retardant protective clothing, Intersec 2019 will shine the spotlight on game changing solutions solving challenges faced by professionals spanning sectors from banking and retail, to infrastructure and energy. Top surveillance technology The 21st edition takes place from 20-22 January 2019, with more than 1,300 exhibitors from 60 countries spanning 50,000sqm of space at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. Korean company IDIS, one of the world’s top surveillance technology manufacturers, is a regular Intersec exhibitor that’s hitting double digit year-on-year sales growth in the Middle East, a position that it largely attributes to contacts made at the annual three-day event. Many of our system integration partnerships resulted from engagement and introductions made at Intersec" “Many of our system integration partnerships resulted from engagement and introductions made at Intersec and we can track this back since our first appearance at the show in 2014,” said Harry Kwon, General Manager of IDIS Middle East and Africa. Commercial organisations “These include Almajal G4S in KSA, Almoayyed in Bahrain and EMS in Egypt to name but a few. The result is an extensive and broad range of successful deployments of IDIS technology across government, education, retail, banking and many other commercial organisations.” “We’re hitting double digit sales growth year-on-year and continuing to increase our market share and geographical reach by expanding our sales channels,” added Kwon. Kwon said IDIS will look to up the ante with a series of new product launches later this month at Intersec 2019, including the latest iteration of its IDIS Deep Learning Analytics (IDLA) Engine: “IDLA has opened a new door to the future of video analytics with ground-breaking 96 percent accuracy combined with a 200ips speed.” Fisheye advancements What’s more at Intersec we’ll launch the DV-2116, AI in the Box, which is a cost-effective, pre-built device with the graphical and processing power" “What’s more at Intersec we’ll launch the DV-2116, AI in the Box, which is a cost-effective, pre-built device with the graphical and processing power to quickly and easily transform existing surveillance into a powerful AI solution.” he said. “Also on show will be our latest fisheye advancements, which include improved peripheral resolution through an upgraded Panomorph lens on the 12MP model and a new 5MP compact model perfect for smaller applications and installation in confined spaces.” Intersec 2019 covers the seven sections of Commercial Security; Fire & Rescue; Perimeter & Physical Security; Safety & Health; Homeland Security & Policing; Information Security; and Smart Home & Building Automation. Protective clothing ULTITEC is one of more than 150 exhibitors in the Safety & Health section, and will showcase its extensive range of protective clothing used by professionals in the oil & gas, aviation, construction and automotive industries. Jason Lin, ULTITEC’s General Manager, said its range of technical textiles are widely used by global conglomerates and local companies alike such as Qatar Gas, Shell, ExxonMobil, and ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company). “At Intersec, we’ll focus on chemical and liquid jet resistant protective clothing such as the ULTITEC 5000 and ULTITEC 4000 which recently won the tender to be applied in PETRONAS Malaysia, one of the world’s largest and most forward-looking oil and gas producers,” said Lin. Excessive heat environments Our unique fabric technology of microporous film provides breathability and is perfectly suitable for excessive heat environments" “Our unique fabric technology of microporous film provides breathability and is perfectly suitable for excessive heat environments in the Middle East. It prevents occupational heat exposure as the microporous size is smaller than a water drop and larger than moisture vapour, offering exceptional comfort without compromising superior protection.” Elsewhere Matrix Comsec from India is one of more than 50 exhibitors at Intersec’s Information Security section that will look to capitalise on opportunities in a Middle East cyber security market that’s estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 11 percent from 2018-2024. According to analysts 6Wresearch, revenues from the Middle East information security market will reach US$2.7 billion in 2024, compared to US$1.4 billion in 2018. High-end solutions With the cloud playing an increasingly important role in the storage and processing of important data, Abhay Joshi, Global Sales Head at Matrix Comsec, said Middle East organisations are taking measures to adopt high-end solutions that prevent unauthorised access and cyber-breaches. “Organisational data is the most important resource that companies have, so firms are opting for secure cloud-based solutions,” said Joshi. “At Intersec 2019, we’ll launch our cloud based Time-Attendance and Access Control solution COSEC VYOM.” “Up until now, Matrix offered on premise solutions, but now customers will have the choice of deploying the solution either on the cloud or on premises. We’ll also launch our mobile based COSEC APTA Face Recognition Technology.

The market has vigorous economic growth, high acceptance towards biometric solutions and a demand for high-end technology Rapid economic development and increasing security concerns is turning the Middle East into a market of ‘untapped growth potential’, said the boss of one of the world’s leading providers of biometric security and access control solutions. Adopting new identification technologies Young S. Moon, Executive Vice President of Korean company Suprema, said regional governments and corporations are adopting new identification and authentication technologies to boost defences against potential fraud, cyber-threats, and organised crime. Biometrics are based on individual behavioural and physiological characteristics that are difficult to replicate, with various system technologies encompassing voice, retina, facial, vein and gait recognition, along with fingerprint matching, and DNA identification. Middle East governments along with a large number of industry sectors, including banks, aviation, oil & gas and retail, are embracing the new technology, making the region a high-focus area for international biometric systems solution providers. Middle East as key market “We consider the Middle East as a key market with untapped growth potential,” said Moon, whose company is among more than 100 international exhibitors specialising in the latest biometric security systems at the upcoming Intersec 2016, the world’s leading trade show for security, safety, and fire protection. “The market has vigorous economic growth, high acceptance towards biometric solutions and a demand for high-end technology.” Suprema will launch at Intersec 2016 its BioStation A2, a leading-edge fingerprint access control and time and attendance system. Moon said Suprema will look to build on the success of the last 12 months across the Gulf region, where it installed six biometric system projects in the government, education, and aviation sectors. “The Middle East is of strategic importance to Suprema,” added Moon. “Our products and solutions are developed to address large or small business needs covering a vast array of industry segments. There are a number of factors that contribute to instability, whether fraud, cyber-threats or organised crime. Suprema offers next-level biometric security solutions that directly respond to these threats.” Increase in global biometrics systems market According to a May 2015 report by research firm MarketsandMarkets, the global biometrics systems market is expected to reach US$24.4 billion by 2020, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.9 per cent between 2015 and 2020. Analysts from TechNavio forecast that biometrics in Middle East will grow even faster at a CAGR of 19.35 per cent over the period 2014-2019. That will come as good news to AllGoVision, an advanced video analytics solution provider, and another exhibitor that specialises in biometrics at Intersec 2016, which takes place from 17-19 January at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. AllGoVision will showcase its 3D Facial Recognition System, which uses facial recognition technology via IP video surveillance to compare facial features with a database of stored facial features to identify potential threats – or a VIP customer. Ashwin Amarapur, Director of AllGoVision, explained: “In city surveillance, the 3D Facial Recognition System is used to identify Black Listed people or known criminals, but in the case of hospitality or banking the use relates more to ‘White Lists’ – for example, visitors identified as a VIP guests or high net worth individuals. “The bank or hotel service staff would be alerted of their arrival in advance and can take necessary care of the valued customer or display an automated welcome note in the electronic board at the entrance,” added Amarapur. Matrix Comsec at Intersec Elsewhere, Matrix Comsec, an access control and surveillance solution provider, is returning to Intersec 2016 following their successful participation in 2015, where they secured business from the National Bank of Umm Al Quwain, having installed Time and Attendance Systems across the UAE bank’s entire branch network.
