NICE Systems has announced its partnership with AMAG Technology, a G4S subsidiary, for the integration of the NICE Situator Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) solution with AMAG Technology’s Symmetry access control system. The joint solution can be used by command and control centres worldwide to improve situational awareness and streamline incident management.
The integration enables bi-directional communication between Symmetry and Situator. This means Situator can receive real-time Symmetry access control alerts and display these events along with access records and images of permitted personnel.
Situator’s ability to pull in data from a wide range of security systems means that Symmetry access control information can also be correlated with information from other sensors for accurate alerting. Once an alert is received, Situator’s automated processes guide operators through response plans to improve management efficiency and minimise risk.
Several utilities companies and ports are already using the integrated solution for day-to-day security operations, allowing them to more easily identify access breaches and to improve collaboration between relevant parties.
Leading expertise in PSIM
Shae Taylor, Symmetry’s extended business solutions programme manager at AMAG Technology, explained: “We’re thrilled to certify NICE as a partner in our Symmetry Extended Business Solutions Programme. NICE’s leading expertise in PSIM and situation management complements our advanced access control technology, enabling end users to benefit from an intelligent and unified solution.”
Chris Wooten, executive vice-president for the NICE Security Group, added: “Security operations are already benefiting from the enhanced situational awareness and streamlined incident management afforded by this integrated solution. The integration is available globally for any customer that wants to leverage Situator and Symmetry together. End users can have confidence in the rigorous testing and certification process that has taken place.”
NICE Systems’ security solutions help organisations capture, analyse and leverage big data to anticipate, manage and mitigate security and safety risks and improve operations. The NICE security, intelligence and cyber offerings provide valuable insights that enable enterprises and Government agencies to take the best action at the right time by correlating structured and unstructured data from multiple sensors and channels, detecting irregular patterns and recogniszing trends.
The company’s solutions have been deployed to help secure a broad range of organisations and events such as banks, utility companies, airports, seaports, city centres, transportation systems, sporting events and diplomatic meetings.
