Vidsys, other tech partners team to form global security operations center to showcase smart city use cases

Vidsys, a global software technology manufacturer of physical security information management (PSIM) and converged security and information management (CSIM) software, launched a Safe City Technology Consortium, comprised of five product companies with best-of-breed technologies.

The consortium will showcase an integrated solution through the presentation of a Safe City Global Security Operations Center (GSOC) demonstration, during ASIS 2016 in Orlando, Florida.

The Consortium partners joining Vidsys include big data analytics innovator, Hewlett Packard Enterprise; video surveillance provider, Hikvision; IT-centric access control provider, Viscount Systems; and video management system provider, Salient Systems. The Safe City GSOC demonstration will leverage the integrated capabilities of these technologies combined with a CSIM platform to deliver real-world use cases and solutions.

Headquartered in Vienna, Virginia, USA, Vidsys provides transformational PSIM and CSIM software platform that has been adopted by some of the world’s leading brands and technology partners within various verticals, including transportation, energy, utility, healthcare and government. Vidsys software has obtained highest levels of information security and assurance from both top-tier global corporations and the US federal government.

Vidsys is hardware, protocol, and device agnostic, and offers bi-directional, browser-based platform with industry-specific features and functions that allows sensors, devices, systems, subsystems, and services to be interconnected via open architecture APIs and SDKs.

The platform collects, correlates and converts vast amounts of data into meaningful and actionable information, based on the organization’s risk policy, standards and compliance requirements. By leveraging mobile and web-based technology, the software can be rapidly deployed and provides real-time situational awareness and information management capabilities.

The Safe City Consortium will provide demonstrations during the ASIS show at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. The presentations will consist of industry-specific use cases, such as smart security, smart transportation, smart campus and smart buildings. The goal of the event is to educate attendees on how the Safe City GSOC can provide a safer and more secure environment, with tangible ROI and lasting benefits for municipalities and organizations alike.

ASIS 2016 will take place in Orlando, bringing together 20,000 security professionals from around the world specializing in loss prevention, cyber security and employee safety, as well as counterterrorism, financial, and facility security.

“Demonstrating a scalable end-to-end solution that can be fully adopted and marketed by any of our systems integration partners reinforces the value of a converged security solution,” said James I. Chong, CEO & founder of Vidsys. “By engaging the ASIS audience in a more dynamic and interactive way, we plan to showcase the true benefits of a CSIM platform in a variety of applications, as well as the ability to expand beyond security and into Internet of Things.”
