Global Security Company Vidsys Expands To Support Rapid Growth

New Facility includes Technology Integration Lab, Unified Operations Room and Vidsys Training Center

Vidsys, the leading global software technology manufacturer of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) and Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM) software, today announced continued investments to support its strategic partnerships and international expansion.

With a rapidly growing customer base and global partnerships, Vidsys has recently undergone major renovations and upgrades to support key strategic partnership programs and business development activities. Over the past year, Vidsys’ software was leveraged by major international events such as the Republican National Convention, the Boston Marathon, the NCAA Final Four, the Formula One Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi, and the 2017 Super Bowl, among many other new projects.

To support this growth, Vidsys has expanded its facilities to include more meeting spaces, training centers, and technology collaboration labs. The new training center will host the company’s key partners, integrators and customers to provide Administrator Training and hands-on training of the Vidsys platform. A new facility also includes a Global Security Operations Center (GSOC) with a full video wall and other partner technologies integrated with the Vidsys software to demonstrate dozens of specific vertical market solutions, including Smart and Safe City applications.

Vidsys software increases situational awareness and situation management for customers, leading to shorter response times and reducing installation and training time in operations center environments. This provides customers the extended capability to manage security by creating a versatile, common operational picture while facilitating collaboration among operators, managers and other stakeholders.

“This expansion and investment represents an updated look-and-feel that reflects where Vidsys is headed as a company,” said James I. Chong, CEO of Vidsys. “We are excited to be opening these new facilities to benefit our customers and partners, as well as increasing collaboration space for our employees who are critical to our company’s success.”

Accelerate Effective NERC-CIP Compliance with Big Data

PRESENTED BY: Vidsys & HPE

With fines and penalties reaching up to $1M/day, there is no time to lose in closing security gaps. In many cases, bringing an organization into compliance has additional benefits in terms of efficiency and effectiveness.  One of the most valuable but often under-utilized assets – data – can be put to good use in addressing NERC CIP requirements.  For example,  CIP-014 is about protection against physical attacks.  Data from surveillance video, sensors, access control and other relevant sources, if monitored, processed and analyzed quickly,  can significantly minimize the risks of oversight AND false alarms while improving security staff efficiency.

To help you address CIP-014 and other CIP requirements such as CIP-006, Vidsys, a leader in Converged Security and Information Management platform, and HPE, a leader in big data analytics engine, have joined forces in providing an integrated solution designed to automate the critical security processes of monitoring different data sources, analyzing for insights, and triggering appropriate actions.  Watch and learn how you can achieve effective compliance faster.
