LONDON, February 12, 2020 — Based on its recent analysis of the European biometric surveillance solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Herta Security with the 2019 Europe Customer Value Leadership Award for its highly scalable and cost-competitive solutions for facial detection. With a wide customer base covering government, transportation, finance, and sport event venues, Herta’s robust facial recognition technology improves the performance of existing IP cameras and security platforms without requiring additional hardware purchases.

“Using machine learning techniques and a graphic processing unit (GPU)-built approach, Herta processes video surveillance data entirely in the cloud. Its real-time, reliable, and effective biometric video surveillance solutions employ advanced technologies to deliver speed, accuracy, and ease of use; it helps produce results 40 times faster than with traditional CPUs,” said Danielle VanZandt, Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “The high-tech facial recognition, deep learning algorithms, and GPU allow customers to combine existing live camera processing with video capture. It also adds high-level features designed to detect gender, age, ethnicity, and partial facial concealment recognition.”

Herta has established itself as the only European company to use GPU edge analytics, which enables it to deliver real-time observance, and incident alerting functions to security teams when events or suspicious activities occur. With its unique ability to operate and store within the cloud, Herta allows organizations to save on storage and server costs, offering an overall fast and cost-effective way to manage data collection.

Herta presents a range of options that include demos, automatic software updates, and renting.

Furthermore, it has an impactful customer service team that strives to establish a well-rounded customer experience.
