Oil & Gas and Utility companies are responsible for dynamic environments with complex logistics and vast perimeters. Ensuring the safety and security of these assets has received greater scrutiny and additional resources in our post 9/11 world. Energy production facilities are attractive and vulnerable targets for both terrorists and natural disasters and are a key component of the DHS Critical Infrastructure Protection Plan. A devastating mishap at an energy facility can result in huge negative economic impact for the company and its brand reputation. Implementing Vidsys software can improve overall interoperability and situational awareness and enhance security, emergency preparedness and response. Ultimately, CSIM enhances risk management.
Vidsys helps energy customers:
- Control multiple and disparate systems and sensors
- Prevent access to unauthorized areas
- Achieve real-time visibility to operational malfunctions or malicious threats
- Effectively monitor geographically dispersed assets
Vidsys CSIM creates efficiencies in configuration and change management. Some facilities may have more than 1,000 doors and cameras to monitor. Before CSIM managing all of these would require manual configuration with set protocols for each respective sub-system. With CSIM a single rule automatically configures and applies the required action to end-devices, saving valuable time and money.
