The National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) is a social health insurance program that serves people all over Dar es Salaam and Tanzania. It has multiple sites spread over these regions. Their current surveillance platform had a few limitations of integrating third party cameras and was not facilitating centralized monitoring for multiple locations. This posed a problem in managing and monitoring all sites from a single location. For this, they needed a surveillance platform that could easily integrate with multi-brand cameras as well as facilitate multi-location monitoring. Moreover, they needed a system with monitoring capacity of over 500 cameras with the facility of remote management for real-time security.

It is one of Moscow’s most ambitious building projects: the VTB Arena Park was built on the site of the old Dynamo Stadium and revitalizes the entire surrounding area with a multi-purpose concept. At an estimated cost of US$ 1.5 billion, the modern VTB Arena Park combines sports, entertainment, commercial and residential facilities. A first challenge arises from the sheer size of the project: The football stadium, known as Dynamo Central Stadium and home to FC Dynamo Moscow football club, hosts league matches with a capacity of over 26,000 spectators. The park’s indoor arena holds more than 12,000 guests during ice hockey matches, basketball games and rock concerts, while the 300,000 square-meter park area also offers retail facilities, a five-star hotel and 1,600-car parking garage.

Outdated infrastructure puts organizations at risk of data loss and downtime and potentially exposes them to critical liabilities and financial losses. It should come as no surprise then that 40-60% of the average security spend is allocated to updating infrastructure.
