SCATI surveillance solution utilized in Colombian bank

SCATI surveillance solution utilized in Colombian bank
Challenge
Developed in the 80s, this financial institution is characterized by working in different business areas. Its main goal is managing the security of the branch network, located in the most important cities in Colombia and also complying with the Circular Básica Jurídica (C.E. 029/2014). All this, saving at the same time operational costs.

To assure maximum protection against illicit actions, the financial company decides to create a recording platform. This way the video recorded in the branch network is being stored in a mass recording platform that provides maximum reliability and guarantees continuous operation of the system in the event of failure in any of its offices. It is equipped with multiple high-availability mechanisms that include server failure tolerance.

Solution
The bank implements the solution proposed by SCATI because the company can comply with the Circular Básica Jurídica (C.E. 029/2014). This regulation says that financial institutions should protect all channels with the client. This legislation requires that the branch network and ATMs need to record and store images for at least eight months. Specifically for ATMs, each economic transaction should be associated with its corresponding images in order to assure the traceability of the operations.

SCATI SUITE is a video surveillance platform that permits full integration with the alarms systems that the financial institutions plan to install. Thanks to this, the institution could trigger actions in the SCATI solutions in case of events. In the same way, the alarm system could confirm with video the alarms.

During 2015, this financial institution installs 15 SCATI VISION video recording platforms in its branch network, able to manage up to 20 cameras. The SCATI VISION platforms have up to 4 TB hard disks. With these items, the company is able to achieve the long periods of recording required in a limited space. It is possible thanks to efficiency in the video comprehension and the flexibility of event-triggered recording given by SCATI VISION.

With the SCATI technology the financial institution can take advantage of the second flow of cameras to record with the mass recording platform, KRAKEN. It is a scalable solution consisting of groups of powerful recording servers with up of 512 cameras and stackable cabinets for external video storage. KRAKEN provides maximum reliability and guarantees continuous operation of the system in the event of failure in any of its components. It is equipped with multiple high-availability mechanisms that include server failures tolerance, hardware redundancy in all its components and continuous monitoring of equipment status.

Advantages
SCATI's solutions have been adapted to the specific needs of the bank, as it includes different video recording platforms depending on the size and the needs of the banking office. The SCATI VISION video recorders optimize the occupied space on the disk without compromising quality of images. The integration with the alarm system makes possible the joint management of intrusion and video alarms.

The bank does not have a control center itself to manage the security of the branch network. That it is why they need a professional video IP solution, able to guarantee the security of the branch networks, the status of the equipment and the diagnosis of any event that may happen.

The versatility of the recording platform allows the users to do performing searching, access to recorded video, visualize statistics and generate real time reports in case of legal requirement. All these functionalities make possible important savings in the management and maintenance of the branch network and, at the same time, a reduction of million dollars to the financial institution.

Thanks to the solution implemented by SCATI, the financial institution has a professional video management system able to guarantee the security of the branch network and also capable of reducing the costs associated to the daily operation, in accordance with the Circular Básica Jurídica (C.E. 029/2014).
