OTTAWA, Sept. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - March Networks®, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, today announced that Danske Bank Group, Denmark's largest financial institution and a top-100 world bank, has selected the company's video management software and hybrid recorders for advanced security at its corporate facilities in Copenhagen. The upgrade expands the March Networks solution the bank is currently using in more than 150 retail banking branches across Norway and Sweden, and continues to deploy working with certified solution provider Stanley Security Solutions.
"We are extremely pleased with the performance of our March Networks video surveillance solution," said Tonny Henriksen, Project Manager, Danske Bank Group. "During the five years that we've been using the systems, they have performed immaculately. The software is also very easy to use, which means that authorized staff right down to the branch level need very little training to quickly access the video they need."
Following Stanley Security Solution's recommendation of March Networks, Danske Bank deployed the surveillance systems to reap the operational benefits associated with the enterprise-class software. March Networks Visual Intelligence software delivers centralized video management and investigation capabilities across any number of networked locations.
"The requirement for a networked solution came from our staff in Norway, who had to travel long distances to retail branches every time there was an incident requiring video evidence," said Tom Soederholm, Danske Bank Group's Vice-President of End-User Technology. "With the March Networks solution, they now retrieve video from the most isolated branches without ever leaving the comfort of their office. It saves time and money and is a major improvement over what we had before."
The solution also met another of the bank's key criteria - the ability to support both analog and IP cameras with hybrid recording platforms that scale easily to match future growth. The 4000 C Series hybrid Network Video Recorders (NVRs) protect Danske's existing analog camera investments, while enabling the strategic deployment of high-definition IP cameras. The NVRs run on an embedded Linux operating system, which the bank's IT group requested to reduce security and performance issues, and incorporate an innovative docking station for faster installation and maintenance.
The bank is so pleased with the solution, it also plans to introduce March Networks Command™ video management system (VMS) software in its security operations centers to gain further efficiencies. Command's intuitive, web-based user interface provides full configuration and management capabilities in addition to live video viewing and playback.
More than 450 banks and credit unions worldwide currently use March Networks systems for security and fraud detection. In addition to powerful video management and recording, the solution includes Searchlight software applications that significantly reduce losses from ATM skimming, cash harvesting and other theft. The March Networks Searchlight™ portfolio includes Financial Transaction Investigation, which synchronizes ATM and teller transaction records with high-quality video to streamline case management and investigator performance. It also includes powerful Skimming Detection, Image Tracker and License Plate Tracker applications that enable banks to proactively detect fraudulent activity at ATMs and strengthen case evidence quickly by correlating facial images, transaction information, colors and license plate data.
