Vidsys New Video Connectors: Latest Versions of Salient, Bosch, NUOO, Avigilon ACC and More

The Vidsys team is excited to announce our second entry in our new blog series – Integrations and Connectors – where we highlight new connectors and integrations that are available with our technology platform. Our Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM) software has the ability to integrate any type of software or physical hardware technology with our system.

Vidsys is pleased to announce the addition of the following video connectors to its existing library of connectors:

  1. Salient CompleteView v4.7
  2. Bosch Video SDK v6.11
  3. NUOO v4.6
  4. Avigilon ACC v6.4

Using Vidsys’ CSIM Platform, security organizations can integrate and analyze information from traditional physical security devices and systems, and resolve situations in real time.

Vidsys NVR connectors integrate 3rd party NVR/DVR’s with Vidsys CSIM software, allowing operators to view real-time and recorded video from their desktops.  Video can be displayed in response to manual user selection and can be automatically displayed when an event detected by CSIM-integrated access control, intrusion detection or another system is reported.

CSIM operators can control PTZ cameras and playback stored video using standard controls (forward, pause, reverse, etc.) that are consistent across different video recorder products.  Operators may define and store video clips and snapshots in CSIM situation records to facilitate post-event analysis.

Vidsys offers a growing list of connectors that enable integration between the Vidsys CSIM platform and other industry-leading converged and physical security products.

Three Security Trends Poised to Take off in 2018

The past year has been a difficult one for those handling security in global enterprises – in fact, there was at least one major hack, breach or security flaw each month of 2017. With the surge of cyber attacks, ongoing weather catastrophes, global tensions, mass violence and terrorism, security plans have been put to the test to ensure business continuity and employee safety. As organizations adapt to handle a wider assortment of challenges and risks in 2018, we are sharing three trends that will impact organization security plans this year.

Move beyond “real-time monitoring” – Almost all companies spend time monitoring for risks in real-time for physical and cyber security. It is time for companies to invest resources in an effort to assess this gathered information and switch from a reactive approach to a proactive approach to better understand and manage operational risk.

Simplified security solutions – With each security breach, companies have a chance to learn valuable information and create greater awareness about the importance of comprehensive security programs. Learning from events like the Equifax breach that could have been prevented – if Equifax had fixed the security flaws that they previously acknowledged – organizations must learn to explain technical security concepts more simply so that employees and the general public will be more likely to follow safe security practices.

Companies will Lean on Smart Security Technology – A lack of skilled security specialists will prove the increasing need for smart technology that can help pull together data from various disparate security platforms and facilitate data analysis. As organizations find that security roles are more difficult to fill, technology will play a crucial role in filling the gaps. A centralized dashboard can allow a single security decision maker to increase their effectiveness through automating certain tasks and data analysis through rules and regulations set by each individual business.

Moving forward into 2018, organizations should be fully prepared for any security issues that arise. Although discussing security plans can be a difficult task, conversations must take place to transition into a proactive year, rather than another reactive one.

If you’re looking for a comprehensive, browser-based and easy-to-install security platform that leverages your existing resources to make your security solution smarter, contact Vidsys here for a free consultation.

London Gateway Ups Security Measures

Below is an excerpt from Maritime Global News covering Vidsys’ project with DP World London Gateway:

London Gateway, one of the U.K.’s major ports owned and operated by DP World, has implemented converged security and information management (CSIM) software port-wide to increase security and provide overall situational awareness capability.
Situated on the north bank of the River Thames, the deep-sea container port is located next to Europe’s largest logistics park, providing shipping access to key U.K. consumer markets. The port is a 2 square mile area surrounded by an 11 kilometer fence line, creating a massive infrastructure to be monitored and managed.

Vidsys Secures DP World London Gateway Port

DP World London Gateway employs Vidsys’ Converged Security and Information Management platform to support physical and IT security program

VIENNA, Va. – January 17, 2017 – Vidsys, the global leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) and Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM) software, today announced that London Gateway, a port owned and operated by DP World (DPW), has implemented Vidsys port-wide to increase security and provide overall situational awareness capability.

DP World London Gateway has been a Vidsys end-customer since 2016 and has partnered with Vidsys on recent expansion projects. The trade-enabling port operator selected Vidsys due to its open platform architecture and vast agility for future growth and innovation, while being able to manage all sensors and systems from one unified view.

DP World London Gateway is the United Kingdom’s first 21st century major deep-sea container port located next to Europe’s largest logistics park.  Situated on the north bank of the River Thames, it provides unrivalled deep-sea shipping access for the world’s leading businesses to the largest consumer markets in the UK.  The site encounters a vast and varied range of security activities, including routinely intercepting stolen vehicles, narcotics and illegal immigrants, and works closely with local and London MET police, the UK highways agency and the Ministry of Defense.

The port is a 2 square mile area surrounded by an 11 kilometer fence line, creating a massive infrastructure to be monitored and managed. Through highly automated technology, Vidsys helps the port run all data through a 24/7 Security Control Room, with a separate control room reserved for elevated security alerts. A particular feature of the CSIM platform that the DP World London Gateway Harbor Master uses frequently includes Vidsys’ innovative, smart reporting capability.

Vidsys CSIM helps DP World London Gateway integrate Access Control, CCTV, and Perimeter Intrusion Detection (PIDS) as well as Fire Detection, Building Management and custom reporting capabilities. Vidsys meets all compliance standards and adheres to various security standards, including International Port Security Code and Homeland Security protocols.

“DP World London Gateway is a massive undertaking, requiring the highest level of precision and enhanced situational awareness that Vidsys can provide with true situation management,” said James I. Chong, CEO of Vidsys. “We’re excited to continue to support the operation of this critical part of the UK’s national logistics infrastructure with DP World.”

“We chose Vidsys due to its constantly forward-thinking approach to innovation and security,” said Colin Hitchcock, Harbour Master & Head of ISPS security and Royal Navy veteran. “Through the Vidsys platform we are able to extend our ability to monitor the port, our assets, and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of our security program.”
