Frost & Sullivan ranks Thales as a leader in supervision for cities, airports and critical infrastructure

Thales is among the global market leaders in integrated command and control centres for the three core sectors of airports, safe cities and critical national infrastructure, according to a new report* by Frost & Sullivan. The Frost Radar™ analysis reveals the market positioning of companies based on their growth and innovation scores. With the Security Digital Platform (SDP), Thales offers a fully integrated solution to help operators maximise security. 

This ranking reflects the company's credentials and the commercial successes of recent years. For over two decades, Thales has been providing protection for more than 400 sites around the world, each with a unique set of issues to be addressed. It is also an endorsement of our state-of-the-art Security Digital Platform, which facilitates operations and helps maximise security at customer sites while keeping costs under strict control. 
Protection of critical national infrastructure — airports, government and military facilities, public spaces, transport networks, ports, industrial facilities, etc. — encompasses a huge range of issues and solutions need to be specially tailored to the operational constraints at each site. Thales offers a complete, modular, intelligent solution designed to accommodate the widest range of scenarios. 
With this value proposition based on Thales's Security Digital Platform, operators have a full-functioned digital command centre that coordinates an extremely broad array of sensors and uses advanced algorithms to manage data flows, enabling them to maximise security across cities, sensitive sites and large events. 

"Homeland security and defence technology are among Thales' renowned specializations. To provide a city or airport with an end-to-end solution, Thales has unveiled a brand new SDP platform, serving as a digital command centre that can handle a wide range of sensors and employs AI-based algorithms to collect and evaluate data. With its in-house R&D capabilities and extensive industry experience, Thales is well placed to acquire significant market share across urban and industrial security applications in the near future."
