Convergint Technologies announced the acquisition of Beacon Security and Communications Solutions, a leading provider of physical security systems and services in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe. Beacon is a value-added security solutions provider serving global Fortune 500 companies.
This innovative system’s global platform leverages multiple security and tracking applications and will deliver impressive apprehension (up to 70% of cases) and asset return (more than 87%) rates. By incorporating smart technology, the devices offer wide flexibility in deployment and improved data storage and organization. The ATM Tracker offers a compact profile which makes it easier to install in different ATMs or similar cash dispensing machines.
Shortly after NOMi – a company that bills itself as the Omniture of the brick and mortar store – acquired cross-device startup Media Armor, NOMi itself has been acquired by in-store analytics competitor Brickstream. Apple delivered a major blow to a core part of NOMi’s business when it revealed this summer that it would begin randomizing Media Access Control (MAC) addresses for mobile operating system iOS8.
