Danske Bank Standardizes Video Surveillance for Branch, Corporate Security

Danske Bank Group, Denmark’s largest financial institution and a top-100 world bank, has selected the March Networks’ video management software and hybrid recorders for advanced security at its corporate facilities in Copenhagen. The upgrade expands the March Networks solution the bank is currently using in more than 150 retail banking branches across Norway and Sweden, and continues to deploy working with certified solution provider Stanley Security Solutions, according to a March Networks press release.

“We are extremely pleased with the performance of our March Networks video surveillance solution,” said Tonny Henriksen, Project Manager, Danske Bank Group, in the press release. “During the five years that we’ve been using the systems, they have performed immaculately. The software is also very easy to use, which means that authorized staff right down to the branch level need very little training to quickly access the video they need.”

Following Stanley Security Solution’s recommendation of March Networks, Danske Bank deployed the surveillance systems to reap the operational benefits associated with the enterprise-class software. March Networks Visual Intelligence software delivers centralized video management and investigation capabilities across any number of networked locations, the press release says.

“The requirement for a networked solution came from our staff in Norway, who had to travel long distances to retail branches every time there was an incident requiring video evidence,” says Tom Soederholm, Danske Bank Group’s Vice-President of End-User Technology, in the release. “With the March Networks solution, they now retrieve video from the most isolated branches without ever leaving the comfort of their office. It saves time and money and is a major improvement over what we had before.”

The solution also met another of the bank’s key criteria – the ability to support both analog and IP cameras with hybrid recording platforms that scale easily to match future growth. The 4000 C Series hybrid Network Video Recorders (NVRs) protect Danske’s existing analog camera investments, while enabling the strategic deployment of high-definition IP cameras. The NVRs run on an embedded Linux operating system, which the bank’s IT group requested to reduce security and performance issues, and incorporate an innovative docking station for faster installation and maintenance.

The bank also plans to introduce March Networks Command video management system (VMS) software in its security operations centers to gain further efficiencies.

Virtualization and Data Center Security: What You Need to Know for 2014

Data centers are increasingly becoming the center of the enterprise, and data center and cyber security is following the same path for security departments. According to Justin Flynn, a consultant at the Burwood Group, the virtualization of data centers allows enterprises to scale more easily and faster, with a smaller footprint.

However, hosting enterprise data in the cloud can make intrusion detection more difficult – how can enterprise security leaders team up with other departments to keep aware of cyber risks and traffic, and physical and data compliance during the virtual transition? How can CISOs and CSOs discuss cyber threats with the C-Suite to get the resources they need? And how can the proper infrastructure test and verify possible malicious attacks?
