Gallagher Security has commented on some of the key themes and takeaways from ISC West.

At the global security manufacturer’s booth, conversation focused on industry innovation, expansion and the changing mindset of consumers as well as the role of integrated systems.

Record numbers at ISC West 2024

“ISC West 2024 had a record number of attendees and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that trade show growth is happening alongside innovative development within our industry,” commented Scott Elliott, Executive Vice President – the Americas, Gallagher Security.

“As we expand our solutions into new territory, we’re attracting new industries, tech partners and curious-minded individuals to join us at the table.

“There’s a lot of business intelligence systems like ours can deliver,” he added.

“Industries like transportation, education or manufacturing don’t typically extract the type of data we can deliver and I think that’s why our industry is starting to garner more attention than we’ve traditionally seen and why ISC West attendance is growing.”

“Real value”

“When you talk to someone about their organisation and its mission, they never go ‘we’re just like everyone else’ – it’s always ‘here’s how we’re different’ and there’s genuine pride behind those differences,” said Luis Colon, Director of Sales – US East and Latin America.

“That’s why I love our system. We give our customers a solid foundation so they don’t have to worry about the basics, like controllers and readers or the overly complex, like cybersecurity, because we take care of it for them and we do it through a single pane of glass.

“With those in place, they’re free to go off and build out the exact solution their business needs, or to get creative and take their systems in entirely new places. That’s real value, and if I had to summarise the theme of what I saw at ISC West this year, that’s the word I’d use.

“It’s not about whether a system is open or closed, rather it’s about a unified approach that creates a solid foundation to open the doors wide for new possibilities.”

“You could feel the excitement”

Melissa Vidakovic, Director of Marketing – the Americas remarked: “There’s always a buzz around ISC West, but this year there was a palpable difference in what lit people up.

“You could feel the excitement in the air as we talked about the direction our solutions are heading in.

“People were dreaming up the possibilities of what they could achieve through our roadmap – it felt like we struck a nerve.”
