The NICE Situator and NiceVision solutions are helping the management team at a critical facility in Poland enhance situational awareness and improve incident management.
Naftoport Ltd, the major oil trans-shipment port in Poland, is successfully using Nice Systems’ NICE Situator and NiceVision intrusion detection video analytics to protect its critical resources.
Naftoport plays a vital role in the supply of petroleum to refineries in Poland and Germany, as well as the transit of crude oil from Russia and Kazakhstan to the ports of Western Europe, the United States and the Far East.
This latest project integrates nine existing gateway security systems to enhance situational awareness for improved incident management and operational efficiency.
Nice Systems’ advanced situation management solution, NICE Situator, offers a single, centralised interface and automated, adaptive workflows that are helping port authorities respond quicker and more efficiently to unfolding incidents.
Working together with ISM EuroCenter SA, Nice Systems has fully integrated NiceVision intrusion detection analytics, surveillance cameras, radar, intruder and hold up alarms, passive infrared, ACS, GPS and automatic identification systems with NICE Situator.
Even sonar is being fed into Situator to detect underwater intrusions.
Optimising day-to-day security management operations
The Nice Systems solutions are also being used by Naftoport to optimise its day-to-day security operations in order to minimise downtimes and ensure operations continuity. Roughly 40 procedures are being automated with Situator to proactively prevent any disruptions.
Cezary Jóźwiak, head of security at Naftoport, commented: “Integrating our disparate security systems within NICE Situator has made our security team more efficient, effective and agile by automating response processes and administration. It gives them a single operating platform through which they can proactively monitor, manage and maintain the safety and security of the port, in turn reducing risks and improving incident management.”
Chris Wooten, executive vice-president at Nice Security Group, added: “This implementation reinforces Nice Systems’ expertise in protecting major seaports worldwide, which is a critical element in border security. Working with Naftoport, we have maximised the potential of its existing infrastructure investments and provided a platform for the addition of new and upgraded systems in the future.”
