Interview with Hennard du Plessis, Scylla Partner
ITO R&D is a South African company that provides project management, cybersecurity advisory, CCTV installation, and crime investigation for private and government clients.
In one of the recent case studies we did together with ITO R&D, their clients required a powerful threat detection system tailored for farming community security. The need for rapid real-time threat identification with high accuracy in the rural areas with low Internet connection was one of the main reasons why Scylla AI was chosen. Scylla’s Perimeter Intrusion Detection and Gun Detection Systems allow to run rapid and more accurate threat identification, decrease response time, and set up a flexible alerting system.
Hennard du Plessis is Information Technology Specialist at ITO R&D with a demonstrated history of working in Jordan, Iraq, Nigeria, Mozambique, and South Africa. He explains, “We were looking for a fast and reliable solution, and Scylla provided that. Their team went out of their way to accommodate our needs. In record time they have created a new product for ITO R&D”.
Today, ITO R&D clients use Scylla’s intrusion and weapon detection systems that enable firearm and intruder monitoring. The system sends alerts when a weapon or intruder is detected. “In partnering with Scylla, our clients get peace of mind knowing that 99% of false positives are eliminated thanks to the robust Scylla’s False Alarm Filtering System,” says Hennard, “With so much going on with a new client, from complicated contracting and signing process to setting up a new technology, having a tool like Scylla is critical. And my favorite part of Scylla technology is how easy it is to set up, adjust, and roll it out to our clients.”
“It’s amazing how quickly you can get started with the technology,” shares Hennard, “After we come up with the new workflow and roll-out plan, all you need is the hardware and an active subscription. It’s amazing that Scylla technology can be used on the existing hardware, or our clients can purchase it at discounted prices from the manufacturer”.
