Integration is a common goal for security and IT teams with organizations looking for efficiencies by linking video with access control and ALPR. While integration can increase situational awareness, it does not lead to significant productivity gains. With integration, organizations are still deploying distinct security solutions from multiple vendors, purchasing multiple servers, attending multiple vendor-specific training, and maintaining several systems. A better approach exists. True unification allows you to deploy a single platform that embeds multiple security systems, minimizes IT infrastructure expenditures, and reduces your total cost of ownership.
When working with two, three, or more security applications from multiple vendors, user effectiveness quickly becomes constrained. At the extreme, it means dealing with over half a dozen monitoring and management applications; operators and administrators are easily overwhelmed by the sheer number of user applications and by the amount of knowledge they need to acquire to perform their work. When you add maintenance of all those applications and upgrades over time to the equation, it is easy to see how your security and IT teams can become overloaded. Unified security platforms, with embedded security applications, sidestep these pitfalls altogether.
Over time, the costs associated with maintaining several systems, purchasing multiple maintenance agreements for each vendor, keeping security and IT teams trained and up to date, and ensuring compatibility between several systems through upgrades accrue without warning. Although minimal at first, these expenses accumulate over time and quickly overtake the initial cost to purchase your security systems altogether. And more often than not, these costs are unplanned in nature. With a unified platform, your organization can take control of these lifetime expenditures and avoid many others altogether.
Move away from independent systems and take advantage of a unified view of all your security information. With consolidated monitoring, reporting, and a map-centric approach to security management, Security Center allows operators to become more efficient, make better decisions, and respond to incidents more rapidly.
Choose from a variety of modular applications and build a system that matches your unique requirements. Beyond core access control, video surveillance, ALPR systems, and communications management, Security Center supports a variety of advanced features and plugins that allow you to address the evolving landscape of risks and threats.
Take advantage of the most innovative possibilities for uninterrupted system access, data protection, and privacy. When you have people and critical assets to protect, rely on a platform that provides continuous access and is engineered to limit system interruptions, all while offering enhanced IT-based security that prevents unauthorized access to sensitive data.
