Security & Surveillance


Big Data is a relatively new term but something that Zenith has been working with for over a decade through our partnership with HP’s Big Data platforms. In the security world it is particularly relevant as our customers seek to leverage and better manage both their existing security infrastructure and data repositories and the ever growing sources of structured and unstructured digital information, both self-generated and from Open Source Information such as broadcast television, websites and social media.

Structured vs Unstructured Data

Unstructured data, human information—such as social media, video, audio, email and free text—is an incredibly rich source of information that contains diverse insights such as sentiment, risks and threats to a government or individual, and even hidden activities of criminals, terrorists, and hackers. It is estimated that 90 percent of all digital information generated is unstructured.

Structured and semi-structured data, stored in traditional databases and data repositories, continues to provide a vital role. With the constantly growing volume of data traditional data warehouses are no longer able to manage the sheer volume and speed of data.

Zenith partners with HP Big Data, the global leader in managing all data types, unstructured, semi-structured and structured – whatever the volume and whatever the data source and type. HP’s Big Data portfolio combined with Zenith’s extensive system integration and software development capability provides a diverse range of solutions to support all government and organisations with their security and operational requirements.

Data Fusion

True security requires a complete picture and full understanding of all data sources. Intelligence information resides in diverse formats and comes from diverse sources. The ability of a human operator to interpret and understanding these disparate information sources and types is tedious and not scalable. The use of technology to manage the real-time flow of information and intelligence is critical in today’s modern law enforcement and homeland security operators.

Zenith combines the multiple technologies of HP’s Big Data platforms and our diverse security and surveillance technologies to provide a complete picture, in real-time and retrospectively, providing users with a coherent intelligence picture, reducing analysts and operators workloads and enabling the discovery of the unknown unknowns.

As each organisations workflow and existing systems are different Zenith provides a flexible and consultative approach to developing a data fusion solution for each of our customers. Building in workflows and reporting, ensuring traceability of information and its access and ensuring the highest levels of scalability and security, Zenith can develop a solution for any data fusion requirement.


As an experienced physical security systems integrator Zenith can provide organisations with advanced physical security infrastructure for the protection of physical assets across a diverse range of sites. To elevate the implementation of security systems to provide a homeland security approach requires the next level of technology, the implementation of advanced Command and Control platforms for Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) and the integration and analysis of vast information resources, both structured and unstructured, to provide a comprehensive and unified view of Big Data related to the security of a nation or city.

In a recent whitepaper by Frost and Sullivan, Global Safe Cities Security, it was commented that there is an ever growing range of threats and challenges facing cities today. In the era of Big Data it is important for cities to have a strategy to ensure they can provide the best protection for their citizens in the most efficient and scalable ways.

With a myriad of challenges and opportunities Zenith is able to help. Whether it is managing the ever increasing number of security surveillance cameras deployed or providing a holistic view of a cities diverse security and data systems through a single integrated view, the challenges are as diverse as our customers.

Using HP’s Big Data platforms and Zeniths range of advanced security technologies Zenith is able to provide an IT driven, highly integrated solution that incorporates both information analysis and physical security management, leveraging existing systems and infrastructure and aligning new investments with the appropriate technologies for the future.

Traffic monitoring and analysis, both on public roads and within private sites, such as shopping centres and car parks, can provide important operational and security information. Using advanced video analytics and additional sensors to identify and track vehicles through large sites can provide operators with important information on site capacity, traffic flows, peak and low periods and potential security issues such as abandoned vehicles, traffic jams and vehicles travelling in the wrong direction.

Real-time reporting and advanced analytics tools enable you to optimize your traffic management in real time and review historical behavior to predict future trends. Through the creation of automated alerts your operations team can deploy additional staff or traffic enforcement officers to manage an increase in traffic volumes and ensure better traffic flow.

For a safe city environment, monitoring traffic flow and managing potential safety hazards and stress levels of motorists is critical. Deployment of sensors and CCTV across key areas of the city can provide a centralized view of an entire city’s traffic flow in real-time and enable centralized co-ordination of assets in the field.

In addition to managing traffic flow it is also possible to detect and prosecute traffic violators through the use of video analytics and other sensors to capture video evidence and issue approporiate warnings or fines for offences.

Following the review of your sites and your traffic flow requirements Zenith can provide you with a proposal to optimize your traffic management solution.


Tracking of people for the purposes of counting, measuring travel time or understanding traffic flows can be achieved through the implementation of appropriate cameras and Pedestrian monitoring and analysis, both on through public spaces such as town centres and in private sites such as airports or shopping centres, can provide important operational and security information. Using advanced video analytics and additional sensors to identify and track people through large sites can provide operators with important information on site capacity, traffic flows, peak and low periods, traffic flow and potential security issues such as crowding, running and loitering.

Real-time reporting and advanced analytics tools enable you to optimize your site management in real time and review historical behavior to predict future trends. Through the creation of automated alerts your operations team can deploy additional staff or open and close temporary entry and exit points to manage an increase in pedestrian volumes and ensure better traffic flow.
