Parrot has evolved its existing Anafi platform to create this lightweight solution engineered to support a wide range of industries. As well as the built-in 4K HDR camera, Anafi Thermal integrates a FLIR thermal sensor – a benchmark product in this sector – capable of letting users see thermal imaging quickly and efficiently.  

With the drone, users can view live thermal and RGB images (4K HDR) of surfaces, structures, or at-risk areas that the drone captures while in flight, which creates the opportunity to better understand areas monitored and take immediate action. 

Users of the drone can collect previously inaccessible information and data at a fraction of the cost, while increasing efficiency and productivity in a secure way. 

With this solution, Parrot says, it is reinforcing its commitment to the professional drone market to make its mark in the way new industries and trades operate. The Anafi Thermal offers a wide range of industries an all-in-one solution that can be adapted to different requirements and needs. It will provide a solution to:

·         Building, construction, public works and real estate professionals 

·         Experts in civil security and rescue services 

·         Energy producers and transporters 

·         Environment and preservation organisations

It will be available later this month from Parrot.com and from official Parrot resellers. Official prices have been stated in GBP at 1700 or around R31,000 at the current exchange rate.

Vox launches customised firewall service for SMEs

In light of the growing number of cyber threats facing modern organisations, integrated ICT and infrastructure provider Vox has announced the launch of a Managed Firewall Service aimed specifically at South Africa’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Click below to read more about the firewall service.

Companies targeted by ransomware have to pay between R50 000 and R150 000, and most small businesses pay up rather than lose all their information – be it financial data, customer data, billing records and more. 

The risk is greater in the SME segment of the market. While corporates can prioritise security at the C-Suite level, these smaller companies often do not have the relevant experts within the organisation to set and enforce security policies and procedures, and need the expertise of a third-party to protect them.

“We have customised a Fortinet solution so that it can be made available at a competitive price point to smaller businesses,” says Craig Freer, Executive Head for Cloud and Managed Services at Vox. “They will now have access to best of breed technology from a global company that is at the forefront of innovation in cybersecurity.” 

Fortinet’s leadership in security has been recognised by a favourable Gartner Magic Quadrant ranking for over a decade, and local SMEs will now have access to some of the best firewall technology on the market.
Customers further get access to comprehensive reporting capabilities that allow them to make informed business decisions around security, particularly around user behaviour and their environment.

Freer said: “Apart from just monitoring for, and protecting an organisation from external cyber threats, a well-monitored firewall will also help better manage network usage and data consumption, which is especially vital for small businesses that often have to make do with connections that offer lesser bandwidth.”

The firewall solution for SMEs is also available as part of a managed service. In this instance, Vox will ensure that certified firewall engineers set up policies that are correct, comprehensive, and well enforced, in order to protect the business’s data and network. This includes crafting a strategy for what an organisation should do in case a breach occurs.
