Retail & Large-scale retail channels

The retail world is undergoing a deep transformation in terms of security: from protecting merchandise on display and managing inventory losses, to digitally securing e-commerce sites and sensitive customer data, and protecting people during the Covid-19 emergency.

The reference scenario

Retail sector digitization requires multiple protection needs: in the physical environment, the biggest problems retail players are facing - regardless of the store size - is not only predatory acts such as robbery, but also inventory losses, which cost retailers more than €49 billion every year (2.05% of the annual retail sales). The most common crimes causing inventory losses include shoplifting, thefts committed by customers and employees, and fraud.

However, alongside the protection of physical assets through integrated intrusion detection and intelligent video surveillance systems, special attention should be given to defending digital infrastructures, as the retail sector is one of the favorite victims of cyber criminals.

With digital innovation and the increasing use of online sales, cybersecurity in the retail industry is becoming even more essential and complex. Protecting your customers' financial data and ensuring high-performance networks - whether you are completing an e-commerce transaction or making a purchase in person - are key assets on which to base your cybersecurity.

With the Coronavirus emergency, physical space management has also become a key issue. There is a need to make stores safe for customers and employees, while still ensuring easy access for them, avoiding the creation of queues and crowds.

Axitea's solutions for physical security

Interdependence between physical and logical security components, brand reputation and e-commerce infrastructure protection are the drivers of retail security.

Axitea offers advanced and intelligent video surveillance, video analysis, anti-intrusion and satellite control solutions, which, monitored 24/7 by the Security Operation Center, prevent loss of goods throughout the entire supply chain, from transport to warehouse storage and store display, against robbery and theft, helping to identify suspicious behavior in real time.

The same intelligent video surveillance systems used for security, can offer indispensable data and information for marketing purposes, such as the number of people entering a store, the time spent in front of a shop window, and gender and age statistics.

Access control systems with body temperature measurement allow employees and customers to access the store in full compliance with safety protocols (temperature below 37.5° and presence of PPE), avoiding the creation of outbreaks.

With digital innovation and the increasing use of online sales, cybersecurity in the retail industry is becoming even more essential and complex.

Proactive and advanced protection of sensitive customer data (profiling, financial, etc.) and IoT systems (for payments, stock management, etc.) is provided by network and workstation (PC, Server) protection services.

Axitea also offers anti-DDoS (Denial of Service) services to ensure optimal functionality of e-commerce portals and prevent interruptions and slowdowns in the provision of online services.
