GIT SECURITY News July 2017


Dear Reader,

This year's IFSEC was really busy and we had the feeling that especially management systems and access control solutions saw a lot of interest. The most discussed topic on the show floor had nothing to do with security, it was the heat outside and inside the halls. Nevertheless our team was collecting a lot of miles walking through the halls and talking to the exhibitors. We have summarized everything in a review of some of the highlights of the show.

I know that summertime is still a busy time for you, but we would like to invite you to take some minutes out of you schedule and vote for GIT SECURITY AWARD 2017. All you have to do is to select one product in each category. You will find an overview of the finalist’s products on For you it is a great chance to win the reader prize! With a little luck, you will soon be the owner of a prestigious digital cam.

Best regards

Heiko Baumgartner for GIT's safety and security team
