Exertis bolsters AI security offering with Scylla
Basingstoke - March 2, 2023 - Exertis has strengthened its security portfolio through a strategic partnership with Scylla, providing both new and current customers with access to Scylla's Anomaly Detection System (ADS) as part of Exertis' expanded security solutions.
Scylla’s AI solutions are ideal for enhancing security in industries such as retail, sports venues, airports, and video monitoring centers, and in conjunction with COVID-19 compliance by providing, among other things, anomaly and behavior detection, face recognition, object detection and tracking, and perimeter intrusion detection.
Scylla, the leading real-time physical threat detection solution, can be seamlessly integrated with CCTV cameras (effectively filtering out up to 99.95% of false alarms), UAV cameras (detecting firearms at distances of up to 50 m with 4K drone cameras and up to 100 m with 8K cameras), thermal cameras, enabling real-time thermal scanning for lithium-ion battery overheating, heating of transformers and electrical substations, as well as skin surface temperature monitoring, and bodycams.
AI-based security has proven to not only be more effective but also save companies money by reducing labor costs. According to a recent market analysis, the global video analytics market is expected to reach $22 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 22.7% from 2020. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic also influenced the wider and quicker application of video analytics for threat detection.
Dominic Ryles, Director of Sales & Commercial – Security at Exertis Enterprise, said: “We are delighted to partner with Scylla and to have the opportunity to bring their leading real-time physical threat detection solution to our channel partners. This new addition to our vendor portfolio means we’re enabling our channel partners to not only open up new revenue streams for themselves but also a unique opportunity to bolster existing video solutions such as CCTV, UAV, thermal, and body cameras with robust AI-powered technology to deliver meaningful insights to detect objects, actions, and behavior anomalies.”
Current surveillance and control systems still require human monitoring and intervention. An AI-based system can accelerate time to action, reducing situational escalation, injury, and even saving lives.
“We are thrilled to partner with Exertis to build on the strength of our innovative platform and capitalize on the massive opportunity and incredible demand we are seeing,” said Albert Stepanyan, Scylla’s Founder and CEO. “Exertis is one of the largest and fastest growing technology distribution and specialist service providers. This is a clear validation of our team’s outstanding work and the start of an exciting new chapter for Scylla, our customers, and our partner ecosystem. We are confident that Exertis’ resources and insights will help us accelerate and scale our growth strategy.”
