“With Avigilon Alta technology, we no longer need to invest in a separate security system at each shopping center, saving us a substantial amount of money.”

Ola Stavnsborg, Group Security Manager


Challenge: Expand security operation

The Olav Thon Group’s operations are fast-growing, and as their business expands in Norway and Europe, the need to quickly and efficiently scale up its security operations becomes a necessity. With siloed, fixed security tech and video security setup incapable of integrating, the Group realized they needed to implement a new solution — a unified platform that would allow them to proactively detect and respond to security threats while enabling them to scale up rapidly as the business grows.

Solution: Cloud-native video security

The Olav Thon Group used Avigilon Alta tech to manage security challenges across their shopping centers, parking lots and hotels.
