Future Fibre Technologies: Boundaries of Security Report. Research commissioned by designers and manufacturers of fibre optic intrusion detection technologies, Future Fibre Technologies (FFT) has found that global spending on perimeter security is continuing to increase, in an effort to combat increasing threats to security. Global factors including increased threat of terrorism, consequently higher insurance premiums, increasing international travel, technological innovation, and increased infrastructure spending is fuelling the increase, which is predicted to reach more than US-$4.5 billion in 2010.
FFT, which undertook the research to provide security consultants, managers and specialists with invaluable insight into the fast paced world of perimeter protection, has released the information in a document called Boundaries of Security – Global Trends in Perimeter Security.
The document takes a balanced look at the security industry and is a must-have resource for all security consultants and industry professionals. It describes a wide range of perimeter intrusion detection technologies and explains their fundamental operating principles, typical applications, and the strengths and vulnerabilities of each.
Detailing security industry trends and case studies, along with best practice recommendations and discussions for infrastructure and high value asset protection, it also includes white papers from FFT’s Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Jim Katsifolis. Essential reading for those wanting to know more about alarm recognition and discrimination for fibre optic intrusion detection systems.
According to Alec Owen, International Client Manager at FFT, the technological advances which were confined previously to primarily the military and aerospace industries a couple of years ago are now emerging in the latest generation intrusion detection systems. “Techniques such as intelligent learning algorithms, neural networks and advanced multiparameter signal processing are being employed to dramatically improve the recognition of real intrusion events versus nuisance alarms,” Mr Owen says.
“We produced the Boundaries of Security to give our customers and industry partners an edge in understanding the technology,” he said. “The pace of these technological advances can make it challenging to stay abreast of the latest developments and we believe this report can help with that.”
Boundaries of Security, valued at US-$300, is available free for a limited period to qualified individuals and can be ordered on-line at www.fffsecurity.com
