CNL Software increases presence in Middle East region

Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) specialist CNL Software* will be presenting its IPSecurityCenter PSIM solution at the biennial International Security National Resilience Exhibition & Conference** (ISNR) in Abu Dhabi. The news comes at a time when the business is increasing its commitment to the Middle East region with the addition of senior operations, technical and development staff.

At the last ISNR show in 2014, CNL Software announced its intentions to open a local office and Centre of Excellence in Abu Dhabi. Two years on and the company now has a fully functioning team in Abu Dhabi offering operations, sales, delivery, support and development capabilities to support its PSIM customers and partners in the Middle East.

“Our IPSecurityCenter PSIM solution has been in great demand in the Middle East, and we’ve secured strategic projects in the GCC region from Safe City developments through to mass transportation, national security and state-of-the-art buildings,” explained Daniel Bloodworth, general manager at CNL Software in the Middle East.

“We’ve increased our staff count in the region by over 300% since our last visit to ISNR, and will continue to strengthen the team over the next 24 months to support our PSIM customers and partners.”

Adlan Hussain, vice-president of marketing at CNL Software, added: “ISNR has established itself as a leading regional show for fire and security professionals. The UAE’s Ministry of the Interior and Reed Exhibitions have done a sterling job in creating a platform designed to engage regional decision makers.”

Hussain also told Risk UK: “Our PSIM technology has become the region’s leading integration and management product for mission-critical environments. ISNR has been part of that journey, allowing us to meet with the right people in order to demonstrate the capabilities of IPSecurityCenter.”

ASC hosts inaugural Business Group meeting of 2016

The Association of Security Consultants (ASC) held its first 2016 Business Group event of 2016 at the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) in the City of London on 18 February.

“2016 is a significant year for us as the ASC celebrates its 25th Anniversary,” explained the organisation’s chairman Joe Connell. In fact, there has arguably never been a better time to join the ASC either as a member, as an associate or a supporter.

The ASC’s move to such a prestige environment as the HAC is just one example of how the organisation is focusing on the delivery of enhanced benefits to its members.

ASC Business Group gatherings offer great opportunities for professional learning, sharing and networking. Add to that the ability to earn CPD points, opportunities for dining and networking at the House of Lords, the RAF Club and the HAC and first class conferencing at the Marriott Hotel, Heathrow for CONSEC and it’s no wonder ASC membership applications are at an all-time high.

For this month’s meeting, Jason Piggott and James Walker of Dallmeier plus Geoff Gritton and Dave Adams of Veracity informed, shared and entertained up to 60 guests alongside Richard Bell, head of cyber operations at Transport for London.

Comment from the industry

From an industry perspective. Murray Bothwell, the managing director of Veracity, stated: “The ASC Event was definitely a great opportunity for us to meet many of the key consultants, specifiers and project managers from the UK’s security business sector. I know that our team members were delighted with the turnout and the organisation of the whole event.”

James Walker, managing director at Dallmeier Electronic UK, added: “The day was very educational for all who attended, and a great opportunity for networking with both new and regular ASC members. Dallmeier will certainly be returning to future ASC Business Group events to benefit further from the educational and interactive presentations given across all aspects of security topics.”

Roger Noakes, the ASC’s vice-chairman, commented: “We’re grateful to our sponsors, including Dallmeier, Veracity and Frontline, and indeed to our guest speakers who always provide added interest and relevance to industry professionals. We’re pleased to be able to offer this great service to our members, their guests and associates and look forward to an exciting range of ASC events throughout 2016.”
