CERT-LatestNews Security News ThreatsCybercrime Uncategorized

The French supermarket retailer Carrefour is having fitted products from Checkpoint Systems, the RFID and Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) product company.

Already 92 hypermarkets have installed and connected with Checkpoint’s EAS 2.0 monitoring product, which processes and retrieves sensitive information from the store in real time. The EAS 2.0 product connects security installations such as EAS antennas, deactivation, detection of metallic masses, fraudulent passage in closed boxes, emergency call buttons and video surveillance. The feedback alerts are real-time on pager or smartphone, whether the operators are on-site or not.

The data collected are integrated into Carrefour’s GSAO platform for the management of internal dashboards, the measurement of operational efficiency on each event and the profitability of security investments.

Jean-Luc Kaes, Large Accounts Checkpoint Systems said: “Innovation and our customers are at the heart of our business. We are constantly working to develop solutions tailored to the new needs of the market.”

This year, Carrefour is also deploying Checkpoint’s latest products in case of fraudulent pass-throughs in closed containers and to prevent warehouse entry alarms generated by customers with non-deactivated anti-theft protection devices. This limits the alarms that would be emitted in store and on-line checkout, the manufacturer adds. Visit www.checkpointsystems.com.
