We recently caught up with Andrew Elvish at Genetec and chatted about his journey in becoming Vice President of Marketing at Genetec. Starting in February 2018, Andrew will be contributing a monthly column called Beyond Security for Security.World to share thoughts and insights on new and emerging trends in our industry.
Genetec introduced Genetec Airport Sense™, part of the Genetec Airport Practice Group. This advanced operational analytics solution relies on data provided by an airport’s existing security infrastructure, including cameras, sensors, and various detection devices to produce actionable intelligence about airport security, operations, and passenger flow. By accessing and analyzing both structured and unstructured data from these untapped security information sources, airports can extend their security investment. Airport Sense is available now from any Genetec certified channel partner.

This is another article in Security.World’s Company Grows series. We were fortunate to catch up with Pierre Racz, Founder, President and CEO of Genetec and chatted about how Genetec has grown over the years. Pierre Racz is not your typical growth company CEO in that he is first and foremost an engineer. He has a master of the underlying technologies, however, he has a keen sense of the market, where he and his company, Genetec, fits into the marketplace. Racz also is atypical in that he has been able to stay current on new technologies, grow his company past the pure entrepreneur stage, and now runs an industry leading video management software company.

Several cities across the US have successfully implemented this program with great results.
