Vidsys Launches Enterprise Mobile App for iOS and Android Devices

VIENNA, VA – August 28, 2019 – Vidsys, the leading global software technology manufacturer of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) and Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM) software, today announces the launch of its mobile app for Apple iOS and Android devices – Vidsys Enterprise Mobile.

Vidsys Enterprise Mobile provides enterprise-level situational awareness using real-time live and recorded video playback from compatible integrated video management systems. Users are able to access up-to-date information from mission-critical security devices and systems anytime, anywhere, using the app on any compatible iOS or Android device.

“It’s vital that the increasingly mobile workforce has access to tools that enable them to quickly and efficiently respond to critical events,” said Vidsys President, Maurice Singleton. “Anyone who works in security knows that threats don’t adhere to a 9-5 schedule, so monitoring and defending against malicious actors requires 24/7 connectivity.

Converged Security Centre Confirmed for IFSEC 2020

Exclusively demonstrating the value of unifying physical and cyber security for 21st century threats, the Converged Security Centre (CSC) returns to IFSEC International, 19-21 May 2020.

There’s only one place where security professionals can see ground-breaking state-of-the-art converged security technology in action in 2020 and that’s at IFSEC International. The original and most certainly the best demonstration of how physical security and information technology fuses together to provide holistic and complete solutions across a variety of challenges. A must have for every security control room!

The CSC is the embodiment of what IFSEC is all about- an opportunity for leading industry experts to showcase the very latest integrated security solutions which enhance resilience against 21st century threats to life and infrastructure.

The CSC will again be a dynamic collaboration between IFSEC, Vidsys and Unified Security a partnership which is deeply committed to trailblazing the convergence of security technologies whilst at the same time providing tangible solutions for security professionals.

“Systems from all security domains need to be monitored and managed in near real time”

The CSC will be a core interactive part of the IFSEC 2020 event proposition and will be supported by a range of keynote presentations and panel debates about the use of the technology and how it is a vital addition to the suite of options available to end users and integrators. Visitors will have an opportunity to see, hear and experience the technology in real time and meet with the innovators and experts behind this pivotally important solution.

 

 

Gerry Dunphy, strategy director for IFSEC International, said: “The CSC is now a major part of IFSEC and is aligned to our strategy of representing the very best in integrated and converged security solutions.

“IFSEC has always been a major showcase for security technologies and the pace of change and innovation is often bewildering, so it’s essential we can address this via our inspiring association with Vidsys and Unified Security and their partners.

“Quite unique”

“It is a quite unique attraction at Europe’s leading security event and we look forward to planning the next project for May 2020.’’

James Willison, founder of Unified Security Ltd and Sarb Sembhi, CTO and CISO of Virtually Informed, released this statement:

“As the use of IoT devices and connected systems increases at an exponential rate, the need to protect the wider systems and the organisation from attacks not only becomes more important, but also much harder to do than in the past. What is required now is that systems from all security domains need to be monitored and managed in near real time –  in recent years more focus has been given to IoT security issues as these directly impact access control and CCTV.

“We believe that only by integrating all the systems onto a single platform and co-locating the cyber and physical functions will security teams be able to achieve and demonstrate the highest levels of enterprise security risk management. We have developed our thinking and collaboration over the past two years and are already working on designing the IFSEC Converged Security Centre of the future for May 2020.”

Said Maurice Singleton, president of Vidsys (interviewed in the video above):

“Vidsys is very excited to be returning to IFSEC to sponsor the Converged Security Centre for a third year. For us, the CSC is an opportunity to work with key partners to showcase the latest and greatest Converged Security solutions, allowing IFSEC visitors to get hands-on experience with some of the best tools the market has to offer – including Vidsys’ award-winning Converged Security & Information Management (CSIM) software platform.

“From comprehensive event security management, to converged cybersecurity solutions and advanced critical infrastructure protection, the CSC will have something for everyone.”

The featured article appears in the August edition of Security Magazine. Below is an excerpt:

 

“Today, technology is evolving at a faster rate than ever before. As enterprises strive to become more agile in order to keep up with technological progress, we’ve seen a sharp increase in the use of digital technology and IoT devices in the workplace. With this increase in devices, the number of avenues for a cyber-attack has inherently multiplied. Corporate and organizational security teams must come up with new tactics to fend off the advanced threats being launched against our increasingly interconnected digital infrastructure.”
