GIT SECURITY News February 2018


Dear Reader,

Did you miss Intersec in Dubai? If yes, you might want to have a look at review and webcast with some of the highlights of the show. More details on new products can be found on our website.

Talking about highlights, GIT SECURITY AWARD is going into the next round now and is a great opportunity for the industry to introduce products to an international audience and to test how popular their products are.  If you work for a vendor of security or safety products we would like to invite you to apply for GIT SECURITY AWARD already now and submit your product entry. The registration page is open until March 31.

Best regards

Heiko Baumgartner for GIT's safety and security team
