The goal of several startups in the video surveillance and analytics segment revolves around reinventing how security personnel and safety resources are allocated in the public safety and corporate security industry. Here we present views from some of the popular startups on how they see their role in the security sector.
Scott Sieracki, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Davista explained that his company's flagship solution, Heimdall, combines multiple data sources and uses predictive and prescriptive analytics and artificial intelligence to inform and dynamically deploy physical security personnel, assets, and technologies.
"This approach allows security and law enforcement teams to automate their processes and maximize their teams' effectiveness, optimize patrols and guard tours, and increase proactive capabilities," Sieracki said. "Our platform automatically deciphers and operationalizes multi-source past, present, and future data and provides our customers the ability to perform both long-term strategic planning and day-to-day operational decision making. Additionally, customizable data visualization and reporting tools enable pattern and trend detection that empowers customers to take prescriptive action."
Sieracki added that his goal is to help security leaders and law enforcement personnel be more effective and efficient by providing intelligent data points and automating daily operational activities using artificial intelligence.
"With Heimdall, our customers have achieved significant awareness levels when responding to an incident and an overall reduction in risk and incidence levels, resulting in increased organizational security focus, efficiency, performance, and safety," Sieracki continued. "Agencies have also experienced considerable time savings because officers can be directed to the areas that systems see as most problematic at that given time. The Heimdall platform automatically adjusts patrol or security strategy based on newly detected and emerging hot spots or potential risks."
