Johnson Controls opens interactive showroom and training facility in Ireland

Tyco, the security products division of Johnson Controls, has announced the opening of its new state-of-the-art interactive showroom and training facility in Ireland.

Located in the Ballymount area of Dublin, the new showroom facility provides the opportunity for system integrators and their end user clients to witness live demonstrations of the features and technology built into the latest generation of access control and video surveillance solutions supplied under the Tyco umbrella.

“In addition to in-depth demonstrations of specific products or software, we’re now also able to show how easy it is for end users to benefit from a totally integrated security solution via an interactive operational system,” said Colm O’Brien, Tyco’s access control and video surveillance business manager in Ireland.

“By way of an example, we’re able to demonstrate the full capabilities of Victor, our unified video management application, which synchronises video surveillance with access control, fire protection, BMS, drone detection and mitigation, radar, gate automation, intrusion and other systems into one powerful and intuitive interface.”

The new facility also has a fully-equipped training room with hands-on workstations to enable system integrators to learn how to offer their end user clients maximum value from a wide range of solutions, including American Dynamics’ Victor and VideoEdge video platforms, Exacq’s video management software, Illustra cameras, Software House’s CCure access control solution, CEM’s access control systems and, of course, Kantech’s access control platforms.

Tyco Security Products unveils all-new Cyber Protection Programme

Tyco Security Products is introducing its Cyber Protection Programme, a multifaceted initiative designed to provide an holistic approach towards cyber security protection for physical security through each phase of the product development lifecycle.

The company has developed its cyber security expertise after many years of providing critical solutions for the US Government and other large multinational customers, and holds several industry-firsts, including FISMA-ready access control and video solutions.

“Our Cyber Protection Programme was born from our unique and broad experience in complying with Government regulatory standards and meeting the highly complex needs of multinational deployments,” said Steve Carney, senior director for integration platforms at Tyco Security Products.

“Our deep understanding of these regulatory issues helps us to better partner with our customers to more effectively mitigate risks from hackers, activists or other malicious threats when it comes to their physical security systems.”

The Cyber Protection Programme is led by a team responsible for monitoring the product development process and authorising final product release to ensure compliance with secure development Best Practice. Some of these Best Practices include:

*Developing and maintaining the company’s security standards for product development

*Performing security evaluations and testing on devices, applications and systems

*Providing guidance to help end users configure systems to comply with standards

*Performing in-house and independent third party security testing of Tyco Security Products solutions

*Evaluating and developing responses to possible vulnerabilities potentially affecting Tyco Security Products’ solutions as they’re discovered

The Cyber Protection Programme has already been implemented across several product lines, including Software House, American Dynamics and Illustra, while the Cyber Protection team is managing the long-term strategy for embedding the same cyber safety mindset across other product lines within the Tyco Security Products portfolio.
