CIIMS Integrated Security Management System

Cyber Incident & Investigation Management System (CiiMS)

Gone are the days when clients were satisfied with merely posting a guard to a site, without thorough understanding of operational risks, potential threats and bespoke client requirements. Management responsibilities now extend to include crime prevention, crime intelligence, incident response, inspections, maintenance, client-relationship management, and Health & Safety compliance, to name a few.

Integrated Facial Recognition

The current health crisis has highlighted the need for a hands-free access solution that is simultaneously hygienic and user-friendly, while offering high-level access control. Organisations such as banks, hospitals, corporate buildings, residential estates, residential and commercial complexes, airports, etc. where access to areas containing confidential data is regulated or where high-level security clearance is required, need a stringent security solution with no margin for human error.

  • Thorburn Security Solutions’ Face Recognition Terminal uses integrated facial recognition technology that manages door, gate and boom-controlled access for opening and closing, without the need for physical contact by any user.
  • The terminals register a person’s most unique physical facial features and expressions. It then uses these as digital identifiers that are interpreted through software to identify persons on a registered database or to verify authenticity of a claimed identity.
  • The terminal adapts to a deep-learning algorithm that helps to recognise registered faces faster and more accurately and can be tailored to various scenarios for buildings, business locations, financial industries, and other areas where stringent access control is essential.
  • The terminal also supports multiple authentication modes, e.g. face pictures, card images and fingerprints.
