A Palo Alto-based company through ISDS official security supplier at Rio 2016 is providing entry greeting and screening . Right before the Opening ceremony, we spoke with Lisa Dolev, Founder and CEO of Qylur. She talks about innovations in mass security, the atmosphere in Rio and why the company launched first in Brazil.
BayBrazil: What is the climate in Rio for tonight’s Opening ceremony?
Lisa: Our teams in Rio are very excited, the atmosphere is amazing and everyone with attention, excitement and alertness for what will no doubt be a very special opening.
BayBrazil: We saw that there is a Qylatron in Rio, what will be Qylur’s responsibilities at the Games?
Lisa: Yes. Our long standing partners, ISDS, is “Fornecedor Oficial “ to Rio 2016. They made it their mission to bring the best most cutting edge technologies to the games and we are part of this, we will be providing entry security screening with the best guest experience.
BayBrazil: Tell us about the Qylatron and the innovation it brings to mass security.
Lisa: Where we are so dramatically different is that we are the only solution that is answering the very painful and currently failing intersection between security and guest experience. Our technological innovation enables us to provide by far the highest level of security – while at the same time providing an enjoyable and entertaining guest experience at that very first point of entry which is so critical to venues who’s brand is all about entertaining their guest either ins a sports event, a concert or an amusement park.
BayBrazil: You are working in another major event in Brazil. How has working in Brazil impacted the company’s future?
Lisa: Brazil World Cup draw event was the very first to try our prototype technology. Then World Cup was the very first to commercially deploy the system at a mega event. Santos Dumont airport was the first airport to trial the system, and now Brazil is one of the first along with Levis stadium in the USA and others are the leaders in making the change for mega events. When introducing a disruptive innovation one usually does not think of Brazil as the leader for this, you tend to think Silicon Valley, Israel, but I believe that the combination of the substantial need for protecting the worlds issues at these mega events, along with the Brazilian vitality and love of esthetics and fun made this a natural for our launch. And obviously our partnering with ISDS was very key. We can say that Brazil will go down in our history book as our first mover leader and set the stage for those who became next.
BayBrazil: IoT has revolutionized the security industry. What are the most innovative products in your view?
Lisa: without a doubt the ability to interconnect systems, sub systems, same systems, access masses amount of data from multiple sources, is key in enabling the future of evolving intelligent products, as well as very reliable ones that are served by intelligent maintenance protocols. In the space of connectivity, I like the way Tesla is connected with its fleets of cars and I expect the driverless cars to thrive on this ability and provide much better safety in that space. I also see all robotic, agricultural, medical and industrial machines becoming intelligent, and evolving through this connection in the service of people.
