Hikvision, the world’s leading provider of innovative security products and solutions, in association with Red Dot Distribution, Africa’s leading ICT distributor, highlighted their commitment to providing cutting edge products and solutions in order to boost the security sector in the African continent.
At a corporate event hosted at the Hotel Neelkanth Sarovar Premiere, Lusaka, Zambia on September 11 2019, Alex Xia (Sales Manager), Julien Li (Senior Technical Manager), Wallace Yang (Technical Manager) and Jackie Shen (Pre-sales Engineer) from Hikvision as well as Satish Upadhyay (Head of International Sales) and Milton Ziwira (Country Manager – Zambia) from Red Dot Distribution presented and showcased the latest security and surveillance products and solutions that are fit for various applications.
As threats continue to evolve from simple attacks on one’s device to advanced attacks on large networks, it is clear that traditional security isn’t going to be enough in this age of digitalization. As a result, Hikvision has been at the forefront of developing a product that integrates artificial intelligence (AI), placing them at the top of the list in the sector.
The world’s largest supplier of video surveillance products has been showing support in the foreign direct investment of African countries such as Zambia. The country has been one of the nations in the Southern African region to show interest in including ICT in their national development plans. Despite the same interest in many developing countries, they face constraints, such as inadequate technical infrastructure, limited human skills to use available networks and services, high cost of communications equipment, and poor policy and regulatory environments, that cause them not to reach their full potential.
As an evolution in tech security takes place around the world, the advancement in AI means the surveillance sector is facing a prosperous period. Hikvision’s R&D department is at the forefront as they are able to offer next-level AI products which further improve intelligent surveillance for customers in a wide range of applications.
