THE CHALLENGE :

Being a major entry point in any country, seaports warrant special attention when it comes to security. Robust seaport security solutions critical to keep threats at bay

Ports covers large geographic area that include varied perimeters that are not capable of being secured the same way as most perimeter security applications. Given the large number of equipment that goes into a seaport security solution and the complexity of integrating proper security solutions is indeed a core issue.
ISPS Standard is a new comprehensive set of measures to enhance the security of ships and port facilities, developed in response to the perceived threats to ships and port facilities.

Modern ports are often multi-functional combining both activities Freight & Passenger. Given the nature of operations, security requirements at freight and cruise seaports are quite different.

Freight seaports are especially vulnerable from a financial perspective.The movement of goods is crucial to global business and economy. Cargo shipping is a billion-dollar business, much more in value compared to the cruise shipping industry. Increased growth in global trade necessitates more freight seaports. But this comes under the shadow of terrorism and piracy concerns, stringent security at ports. In short, this vertical is all set to continue growth as the global economy moves forward.

Passenger ports, for the Cruise port, passengers’ safety is always the priority. Security systems at cruise terminals are more relevant than that at cargo terminals. Very large numbers of passengers are moved in and out on the same day, getting all of them off the ships, through the garages, out of the parking garages, having them pay for the parking and then getting ready for the passengers who are leaving on the same day.
