We are excited to announce the newest release of our Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM) software platform, Vidsys Enterprise 2017. These updates include enhanced capabilities for supporting enterprise customers, such as an improved data visualization module to correlate open source and social media data, a business intelligence dashboard to provide both real-time and historic reporting data, and enhanced capabilities for supporting customers with multiple and distributed facility locations.
As the market leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM), this new platform update extends our position as the leader in the burgeoning CSIM marketplace.
The Vidsys Enterprise 2017 Platform includes three major enhancements to the software’s functionality:
- Virtual Situation Management (VSM): The Virtual Situation Management solution gives customers the ability to better manage locations that are distributed locally, regionally, nationally and globally. VSM provides a consolidated, dashboard view of situations across multiple, independent Vidsys Enterprise servers, significantly improving reporting capabilities across all subsystem data.
- Enterprise Data Visualization (EDV): The Enterprise Data Visualization dashboard allows for the receipt and correlation of risk data generated outside the customer’s environment to notify them of potential impact to their personnel, resources, facilities, and brand. The platform pulls and correlates data from open source technology and social media inputs.
- Enterprise Business Intelligence (EBI): The Enterprise Business Intelligence tool allows customers to pull data through a single dashboard and create reports on the data that is created. This functionality is useful for end users to better understand the status of data points that are occurring within their environment. The enhanced reporting module is flexible and scalable to the end user, and provides customers the ability to utilize data for budgeting and resource allocation.
While security will continue to be a core functionality of our software platform, CSIM enables Vidsys to extend its capabilities beyond physical security by capturing and correlating data from multiple non-security systems as well. Customers can leverage the platform to support operations for a wide variety of applications, such as cybersecurity, manufacturing and supply-chain systems, and building management systems.
“The Vidsys Enterprise 2017 release represents a major milestone for the company as we continue to innovate and evolve our software beyond security to a virtualized services platform,” said James I. Chong, CEO of Vidsys. “Expanding IoT application requires enterprise organizations to manage data from a wide range of inputs. We are excited to continue our close partnership with our integrators and end-customers around the world who are extending our platform to deliver services of every kind, including Smart Security, Smart Transportation, Smart Buildings, and even Smart & Safe Cities.”
The new updates provide customers with enhanced global situational awareness capabilities and the ability to better manage situations across their enterprise from any location in the world. For many organizations, this is an essential element for effective global operations, as managing campuses across the globe requires the ability to process and correlate large amounts of data quickly in order to enable smarter and faster decisions in emergency situations. A main component of these improvements is the Virtual Situation Management (VSM) dashboard feature, which provides a consolidated view of situations across multiple customer locations.
In addition to the software version upgrades, we are also rolling out an updated pricing model tailored to businesses seeking a Software as a Service (SaaS) approach. The SaaS pricing model alternative will allow Vidsys to better align its licensing and services with its customers’ procurement requirements.
Through the Virtual Situation Management, Enterprise Data Visualization, and Enterprise Business Intelligence enhancements, as well as the new SaaS pricing model, Vidsys looks forward to helping its customers improve their functionality and efficiency, creating smarter cities and safer communities across the globe.
