CMC Markets upgrades IP surveillance solution with Avigilon

CMC Markets Plc (“CMC Markets”), a trading enterprise with 800 employees, is assisted by Avigilon to protect employees, visitors, and critical customer information maintained at its headquarters in London, England.

At 55,000 square feet, CMC Markets' head office is a completely refurbished building located in the heart of London's financial district. A multi-tenanted building, CMC Markets occupies 3 floors of office space and is home to the company's 4,000 square foot back-up data center. CMC Markets recently relocated to this site to accommodate its growing needs, giving facility managers a blank slate to install the most advanced surveillance system possible.

“We had an analog-based surveillance system at our previous headquarters – an old, cumbersome, and unreliable system that produced very poor image quality,” explains Andrew Roberts, Group Facilities Manager at CMC Markets. Keen to transition to high definition IP-based surveillance, Roberts needs greater flexibility, better coverage, and ease of use, all at a competitive price point.

With the move acting as a catalyst, CMC Markets begins to evaluate its options for a more advanced HD surveillance system with the assistance of Avigilon's partner BFI OPTiLAS .

In order to cater the need of security, Avigilon HD cameras are installed at all egress access points throughout the office and cover the lobby, main coffee area and seminar room, all client areas, IT rooms, and the data center.

Moreover, CMC Markets Plc also installs an Avigilon HD network video recorder (NVR) to store up to 30 days of continuous surveillance video. The Avigilon HD Surveillance System operates 24x7 and is monitored by a limited team of administrators and managers when incidents require investigation.

After the installation, CMC Markets Plc has improved onsite security and can better protect critical corporate and customer assets—assisting the company in achieving regulatory compliance. With a comprehensive end-to-end approach to security, the Avigilon HD Surveillance System is secure, minimizing the possibility of data leaks and further enabling regulatory compliance. Using Avigilon Control Center software, security personnel can shave hours off investigation times and dramatically improve investigative success.
