Dorgard Pro: Holding fire doors open – until the alarm sounds

One of the outstanding highlights from IFSEC 2018, the Converged Security Centre returns to this year’s show on an even bigger and better platform to showcase the very latest in integrated security management technology.

Conceived and delivered by Vidsys, the centre is a state-of-the-art demonstration area which expertly highlights the advancement of Converged Security Information Management (CSIM) and how software, hardware and all forms of information media can be expertly used to gain a complete overview of a developing security situation.

Each day at IFSEC 2019, the Converged Security Centre will present a wide range of simulated security scenarios. These will relate to situations such as transport, utilities, open spaces and infrastructure, and reveal how integrated security systems can be aligned with supplementary information sources such as social media to provide end users with the whole developing picture.

As a security professional, if your role is to manage the security of a large-scale asset, then the Converged Security Centre is an absolute must-attend feature; it will expertly show you how this technology provides a vital and integrated approach to situation management.

“There is a growing requirement for a converged security solution, especially given the increasing amount of data created by the IoT and smart cities.” James I Chong, CEO, Vidsys

The Converged Security Centre will crucially show how, with a fully converged security system, users can correlate multiple events into one situation, track major assets, execute efficient building management operations, mitigate cyber threats, monitor social networks and most importantly enable high level information security resilience.

The Vidsys CSIM technology is the perfect integration platform for multiple systems and hardware to work in a fully integrated manner. This year Vidsys will be welcoming support from a number of glonal partners, including Ipsotek and Micro Focus, to show how a vast range of related technologies can work in tandem, to provide a truly effective and highly efficient security solution.

Converged Security and Information Management provides a real time technical solution enhanced by Artificial Intelligence, meaning large volumes of data can be interpreted and processed to enable a more efficient response.

Experts from Vidsys will be on hand at IFSEC to help explain and guide visitors on the uses of CSIM, as well as how this integrated approach to security management can provide effective and long-term resilience for any major asset or installation.

The Converged Security Centre is a cornerstone feature in IFSEC’s role as a platform to show security professionals technologies and capabilities in real time, delivered by world leading experts with solutions they can trust. It is also a key part of the IFSEC ‘Show Me How’ programme, providing direct access to learning and insights they would otherwise struggle to see.

James I. Chong, CEO, Vidsys says: “We’re thrilled to be part of the Converged Security Centre’s return at IFSEC International 2019 and to be working with our global partners and experts to showcase and share what a truly converged security solution can provide to organisations worldwide. Today, there is a rapidly growing requirement for a converged security solution that monitors both physical and cybersecurity events under one, unified software platform, especially due to the ever-increasing amount of data created in the world of IoT and smart cities.”

Gerry Dunphy, Exhibition Director IFSEC, says: ‘’IFSEC is delighted to welcome Vidsys back to this year’s show as the key partner in The Converged Security Centre. The feature made a major impact at last year’s IFSEC, showcasing how integration and resilience can be achieved through the strategic use of CSIM. IFSEC visiting customers with key roles in safeguarding major assets will directly benefit from seeing the capabilities on display.”

James Willison, Founder, Unified Security Ltd and Sarb Sembhi CISO Virtually Informed add:

“We are delighted to be working with UBM, Visdsys and their partners to bring together physical and information security professionals and converged technologies in one operations centre. The last few years have shown how important it is for physical security vendors to ensure that their products are resilient to cyber-physical attacks, and it’s important for them to ensure that their products can integrate with enterprise threat intelligence tools. This theatre showcases some of what is possible with integrated solutions.”
