Matrix Comsec finds ‘Going contact less’ as one of the cutting-edge technologies amidst pandemic
With a concern for safety and security of enterprises, Matrix Comsec is committed to keep pace with the revolutions in the Security and Telecom industries. As an innovative, technology driven and customer focused organization, the company’s R&D is the foundation of its growth and sustenance. In a chat with VARINDIA, Ganesh Jivani, Managing Director, Matrix Comsec spoke about the current scenario, steps taken during the pandemic, its products etc.
The security trends
Ganesh Jivani feels safety and security is the primary concern of every enterprise or business. With emerging technologies, security threats are poised to increase and become even more rampant.
Delving deep in the security concerns, he says, “Today, security has become even more critical because people are staying at home and cannot physically visit their workplaces. New-generation and security solutions and equipment have foreseen an increasing demand during the lockdown due to Coronavirus Pandemic. The integration of remote administration, monitoring, notifications, and real-time alerts where enterprises can keep a check have made things easier to some extent. IP Cameras that provide glitch-free performance is the need of the hour. Safety is vital and surveillance technology required to achieve this is becoming increasingly challenging and complex. Smart enterprises, today, do not require obsolete, analog surveillance systems but new, dynamic automated approaches that provide strong safety and high business value from day one. Whether you manage 100+ locations or one, today, an effective Centralized IP Video Surveillance system should be able to capture and document security events from endless locations.”
Enabling with latest securitytechnologies
Matrix as a security enabler reaches to various types of enterprises. On one hand, large organizations demand robust security, centralized visibility, complete control, quick response, real-time triggers and intelligent analytics. On the other hand, enterprise size, structure, diversity, hierarchy and legal compliance pose formidable challenges in meeting these expectations.
Explaining such complex situations, Ganesh illustrates, “To address such complex and diverse needs of large organizations, Matrix offers an enterprise-grade Video Surveillance solution that aims to provide world-class surveillance solutions addressing the security concerns of small, medium and large enterprises. Matrix brings a centralized security with IP Video Surveillance solutions that can manage multiple devices located at multiple locations. Moreover, these solutions can be integrated with Intelligent Video Analytics, Access Control, and Fire and Intrusion alarm functionalities as well. This facilitates our customers to gain greater control over their systems, thus enhancing output by manifolds.”
Steps taken to fight pandemic
In this unprecedented situation, Matrix has thought about the wellbeing of its employees and has taken steps to fight against this pandemic.Ganesh explains, “We have kept sanitizers at the entrances. Our Palm Vein Recognition system (Access Control and Time-Attendance) had a handguide which has been removed for safety purposes and contactless biometrics has taken over the entire organization. COSEC APTA is a mobile application which enables employees to mark their attendance via bluetooth and QR code. Also, the attendance can be marked through APTA via location and face recognition features. We have asked our employees about their recent travel and have encouraged them to opt for paid leaves for overall safety. Also, we have instructed and educated our employees to maintain a hygienic environment at the premises as well as at their homes.”
Ganesh feels going contactless is the only option to fight against the pandemic. Throwing light on this matter, he further says, “In my opinion, going contactless is one of the cutting-edge technologies that we already have that helps dealing with Coronavirus pandemic. Extensive use of facial recognition technology, bluetooth and QR code and Mobile app biometrics can be a major help when it comes to going touchless. In addition to this, we are helping our channel partners and existing customers in installing contactless biometrics at their enterprise premises.”
On Govt’s ‘Vocal on Local’
On PM Modi’s motto for the local products, Ganesh perceives, “We support our Prime Minister, NarendraModi on making local products global as our products are distributed primarily through its strong distribution network of channel partners all over the world. Over 2,500 channel partners spread across the globe are marketing, selling and supporting Matrix products. In addition to India, Matrix products are available in many countries of Europe, the Americas, Middle-East, Africa, Asia and Australia.”
