Event brings end users, integrators and technology partners together to discuss the surveillance and security needs of today’s educational institutions
Oncam, the leading provider of 360-degree video capture and business intelligence technology, announced recently it will partner with Pivot3, a pioneer and innovator in the development of hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions, to host the second in its series of education security symposiums aimed at creating a dialogue about the risks that today’s educational facilities face. The event, titled “OnCampus,” will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 31, at Offsite in Chicago.
The open, welcoming nature of today’s educational facilities poses significant threats to the safety and security of students, faculty and staff, leaving every tier of the community – from parents to police departments to school administrators – anxious to find better protection. The OnCampus educational symposium brings manufacturers, consultants, technology partners and systems integrators together to discuss the evolution, improvement and future of the education security market.
The OnCampus symposium includes two components. The first explores the challenges the education end user faces in today's environment where campuses are increasingly becoming the targets of evolving physical threats. The second focuses on the efforts of technology partners to bring integrated solutions to these campuses, and how these strategic partnerships can leverage the latest in video surveillance, analytics and other security technologies to aid in investigations and proactively keep students safe.
“We’re excited to partner with Oncam in this endeavor to bring more awareness to the security challenges educational institutions face. With a growing focus on increasing surveillance deployments to provide safe and secure places to grow and learn, we are eager to help drive the conversation around how the industry can help support stronger security postures across the education sector,” said Brandon Reich, senior director of surveillance solutions, Pivot3. “Pivot3 is uniquely able to offer these institutions system resiliency and data protection for their video needs, which are paramount to providing security and peace-of-mind to all parties involved.”
“This series of events has shown us how important the security posture of a school can be – whether it’s as small as a rural elementary school or a large, widely dispersed university,” said Jumbi Edulbehram, regional president, Americas, Oncam. “Alongside Pivot3, we want to start a dialogue about how security manufacturers, integrators and consultants can best meet those unique needs with comprehensive solutions that keep ROI, scalability and efficiency at the forefront. This event is one way to spark the conversation and offer attendees a chance to add to the discussion.”
