As part of the agreement, Verint will resell EMC's industry-leading networked storage systems and enterprise content management software as part of a tightly integrated and tested, enterprise-class Video Management Solution for the physical security market. Verint and EMC have also entered into a technology agreement to ensure efficient testing and certification of new, innovative products and technologies from both companies.
