Alarm Noise makes Centralized SOC Monitoring costly

Select your security challenge below to learn how Cobalt Monitoring Intelligence can make SOC monitoring efficient and cost-effective!

Thousands of alarms, BUT who's reviewing ?

Access Control Alarms Challenges

  • Excessive Volume: Some sites can produce up to 30,000 DFO/DHO alarms per month. This makes it next to impossible to video review or dispatch to every alarm.
  • Alarm Fatigue:  Constant exposure to a high volume of alarms leads to fatigued operators who become desensitized and may overlook critical threats.
  • False Alarms: More than 90% of access control alarms are a nuisance caused by device issues, human error, or environmental factors. If managed, these nuisance alarms are usually cleared without solving their root cause.
  • Alarm Prioritization: Operators must prioritize alarms based on severity and potential impact, which can be challenging when faced with many concurrent alarms.
  • Slow Response Times: Most alarm response workflows operate like a game of Telephone, with many manual steps that cause delays due to operator workload, miscommunications with guard force, or lack of clarity of what happened at the time of the alarm.

 

The Access Control Alarms Solution

Cobalt Monitoring Intelligence cuts through alarm noise to help you detect unauthorized access and root-cause faulty doors. Cobalt Monitoring Intelligence combines data feeds from your cameras and access control system, uses AI to assess and contextualize the scene at the time of the event, and uses Machine Learning to filter and contextualize these alarm events into a single, unified storyline for a SOC operator to easily review.

  • No rip and replace: Works with existing cameras, access control, and video management systems
  • Correlates across disparate systems: Aggregates data from multiple different types of access control systems and cameras, then uses Machine Learning to standardize, intelligently group, and contextualize the data into one event in a unified interface for review.
  • AI plus Human, not versus: AI enables the early detection of threats, and efficient human review allows human judgement to determine action. Our AI/ML platform is built to help elevate the focus of Operators’ work, not replace them.
  • Video review every alarm: Use AI context from the camera stream nearest the alarm at the time of the event to assess whether an unauthorized person may have entered, or a door remains unsecured.
  • Automate alarm dispatch: For alarms where video review is unavailable or insufficient, streamline the process of dispatching a security guard or robot to investigate and resolve the alarm.
  • Eliminate 99% of false alarms: Cobalt Monitoring Intelligence uses a combination of AI and human operator reviews to achieve insanely high accuracy levels. This allows your Security Operations team to focus on responding only to real, human-verified alarms.
  • Root cause nuisance alarms: Use AI context from cameras and trend analysis to identify nuisance alarms, accurately document the probable root cause, and automate the creation of work orders to have the appropriate party fix the real issue.
  • Not another pane of glass: The Cobalt Monitoring Intelligence platform pushes verified events back into your existing access control system, allowing your GSOC Operators to use the same alarm panel they’re already used to in order to investigate and resolve verified events. No need to have yet another window up on the screen and retrain your operators.

Hundreds of cameras, who's watching ?

Camera Monitoring Challenges

  • Attention Span and Fatigue: After only 22 minutes watching a camera, a SOC operator will miss 95% of incidents.
  • Information overload: Security cameras are everywhere, but expecting Operators to watch them all is untenable. They end up being used as a reactive, investigative tool for insurance purposes, rather than being leveraged for real-time response.
  • Prioritization of alerts: Camera analytics alone create more noise, rather than less, in the form of alarm events. This makes it hard for Operators to focus on the threats that matter.

 

The Camera Monitoring Solution

Cobalt Monitoring Intelligence uses AI to proactively detect threats in your existing cameras. Then, it uses Machine Learning to filter and contextualize these alarm events into a single, unified storyline for a SOC operator to review and action easily.

  • No rip and replace: Works with existing cameras and video management systems and makes them smarter
  • Many analytics available: Manages AI-based alarm events from Cobalt proprietary analytics packages and third-party camera analytics, including visible firearms, tailgating, loitering, unauthorized entry, and more.
  • AI plus Human, not versus: AI enables the early detection of threats and efficient human review allows human judgement to determine action. Our AI/ML platform is built to help elevate the focus of the Operators work, not replace them.
  • Affordable, real-time surveillance: Allows one SOC Operator to review live alerts from 150+ cameras
  • Reduced dependency on contracted guards: Many of the threats on-site security guards are hired to observe and report can more efficiently by detected and managed by remote monitoring cameras using Cobalt Monitoring Intelligence.

Proactive Centralized Monitoring without the noise

Struggling with false alarms and high monitoring costs?

Security threats often involve overwhelming false alarms, making it hard to spot real dangers. Traditional security measures are often reactive, leaving gaps in protection. The challenge of constant vigilance is significant; attention wanes, and not everything can be monitored effectively by humans at all times.

Integrating new technology with existing systems presents another hurdle, potentially leading to inefficient operations. Without the right tools for data analysis, making informed security decisions becomes increasingly difficult. Identifying these issues is crucial for advancing toward more proactive and efficient security solutions.

Introducing Cobalt Monitoring Intelligence, the revolutionary AI-powered SOC monitoring platform. Cobalt Monitoring Intelligence seamlessly integrates with your existing systems, filtering out noise and contextualizing real events for efficient review by trained operators. This transformation not only makes surveillance more actionable but also significantly more cost-effective.
