Hakimo, a venture-backed company dedicated to modernizing physical security, has released its smart monitoring software powered by artificial intelligence (AI) to holistically manage enterprise physical security operations.  Hakimo’s software streamlines the workflow of a global security operations center (GSOC) by freeing up time for operators and surfacing security threats which would have gone unnoticed.

“Hakimo leverages state-of-the-art deep learning technology developed over the last few years,” said Sam Joseph, co-founder and CEO of Hakimo. “What Hakimo is doing today was literally impossible to achieve just a decade ago. Hakimo-like tools have been the norm in the cybersecurity industry and Hakimo is pioneering the convergence between cybersecurity and physical security by bringing them to physical security.”

Tailgating, when an unauthorized person follows an authorized individual into a secured premises, is a serious concern for every security organization. Hakimo’s software detects tailgating using existing cameras without needing any additional hardware to be deployed. The software also includes gamification tools and automated email alerts to bring about behavior change in employees. Corporate security systems using Hakimo’s software reported a 99 percent precision rate on hundreds of thousands of events analyzed by the system.

Hakimo also uses video analytics to auto-resolve false alarms and consistently reduces nuisance alarms by 75 percent to 85 percent, allowing GSOC operators to focus on real issues that require true human attention and handle five times the volume of alarms with the same amount of resources.

Hakimo’s data analytics algorithms also analyze alarms across time and diagnose faulty hardware such as door sensors and sensors. Pointing out anomalies in cardholder behavior is another useful tool in Hakimo’s toolkit. It can point out impossible travel (the same card being used at multiple locations within a short duration which is physically impossible), unusual time or location of usage, and more.

Hakimo was founded by AI researchers at Stanford University and raised a $4 million seed round from several top Silicon Valley investors. The round was led by Neotribe Ventures and saw participation from defy.vc, Firebolt Ventures, and prominent angels such as Ameet Patel, Prasanna Srikhanta, and Stanford professor Sachin Katti. Hakimo’s solution is currently deployed at several leading enterprises across the country.
