The liquid scanner offers the best detection rate available, according to ECAC Standards. It has the lowest operational false alarm rate, of below 1% in EU airports. Scans take just 5 seconds, during which time specific threat materials are identified and named. The scanner is ideal as a stand-alone system for all containers, or for alarm resolution with EDS for cabin baggage.

The ongoing development and integration of information technology in all areas of business means that today no company can afford this technology to fail. Almost without exception, a power supply failure in industry and business leads to collective incapacity.

Only a few years ago many organizations were able to “survive” an IT infrastructure outage of several hours, but today the number of companies for whom continuous IT availability is essential is growing steadily. According to a study by the Meta Group, a 10 day breakdown of key IT systems can cause such lasting damage to an organization that there is a 50% chance it will disappear from the market within the next five years.

Structured and competent planning is fundamental if you want a truly comprehensive security system. Therefore, we always start by identifying any potential risk which then enables us to offer customized security goals and solutions to our customers.
