#ISCEast: Focusing on solutions to shape the future

Guest authors

Finding the right answer to your security or business challenge isn’t always easy. Doing so requires a unique perspective and vision. It could even mean rethinking security and business optimization by focusing on solutions and new technology, such as the ones featured in our ISC East booth this year. These included intercoms, intelligent audio, end-to-end solutions, intrusion protection, analytics and tools such as AXIS Camera Station Integrator Suite and AXIS Device Manager.

Along with all of the action that took place in-booth, we also took part in number of speaking engagements that touched on both solutions and other industry-relevant topics, such as network configuration and mapping your career in the security industry.

There’s certainly more to discuss, so read on for an in-depth look at what took place on the show floor!
