Adrian Leppard, Commissioner for City of London Police, opened IFSEC International commenting “the security industry is seeing rapid growth and it’s crucial for professional’s to have the technical knowledge to stay ahead of the curve. New technology also offers new business practices to enhance both the efficiency and effectiveness of services at a time when both the public and private sector are wrestling with cuts in spending.” Commissioner Leppard visited the Xtralis booth for a review of Xtralis safety and security solutions, including the recently announced portfolio of multi-service capabilities for the ADPRO FastTrace™ 2/2E remotely managed multi-service gateway (RMG).

The Xtralis booth was overflowing with dignitaries and visitors clamoring to see the latest innovations from Xtralis.
ADPRO IntrusionTrace was tops in the Perimeter Software/Services category for the 2014 Benchmark Innovation Award. Judging for the innovation awards is carried out by the Benchmark Magazine editorial team, along with installers and integrators that the magazine regularly works with for testing and assessment purposes. Winners are determined with judging criteria based upon fitness for purpose, suitability for security applications, delivered benefits and potential for wider adoption. IntrusionTrace bested four other finalists in Perimeter Software/Services category.
