Don’t Ignore Layered Perimeter Security

According to a new report, the global perimeter security market will reach $312.2 billion by 2027. And for good reason: high-profile intrusion incidents have been on the rise, making perimeter security a top priority for organizations.

Perimeter security is defined as the technologies designed to protect people and assets within a facility and its grounds by detecting unauthorized intrusions across a delineated perimeter.  Whether a physical object or a virtual obstruction is deployed, detection and deterrence go hand-in-hand. However, where that can sometimes present a problem is when a large campus is supposed to be an open environment with open access (like a university). Then, it becomes imperative to strike a happy medium between security and openness.

To achieve that balance, various security layers should be implemented to protect the boundary. Perimeter security can include video surveillance, intrusion detection, access control, physical fencing and/or gates, and more. The preferred type of security system and related technologies utilized depends on the organization’s intrusion risks, which can range from vandalism to criminal theft and beyond. What is most important, however, is that each layer should help delay, deter and detect intrusion.

When implementing a perimeter security solution, it is important to consider that the rise in perimeter intrusions, theft, cross-border terrorism, illegal immigration, and other threats have significantly impacted the rising demand for innovative solutions that transform security response into proactive mitigation. As such, global organizations that prioritize video data and adopt a more proactive approach to security will come out on top. Advances in video and other security technology have helped increase the scope of perimeter security protection and its design has led to increased use in areas such as commercial and residential sites, retail and transit operations, and other urban and remote locations. LiDAR-based systems are becoming an increasingly popular choice for security and surveillance applications due to the technology’s accuracy, reliability, and cost-effective operation. 

Oyla is the first video camera to combine two powerful visualization technologies in a single form factor to capture and deliver the rich data that propels more accurate awareness and better application of deterrence measures. Minimize or eliminate false alarms by establishing more precise regions of interest in 3D space, and better identify the object in question and its precise location in relation to other objects in the field of view.
