The function of a nation’s economy depends on the proper operation of its critical infrastructure, airports and seaports, petrochemical and power plants, transportation networks, as well as government and military facilities. Multiple security systems and sensors safeguard critical infrastructure including access control, identity management, building management, panic and fire alarms, biometric scanners, video surveillance, analytics, and more. But these often operate independently, in proprietary environments, even geographically dispersed, which can result in a fragmented approach to security, and the challenge of managing potentially overwhelming amounts of data.
Nextiva PSIM – Physical Security Information Management – from Verint, brings together data from multiple sources, enabling the user to view, correlate and assess the information. Armed with comprehensive and accurate analysis, the operator can initiate and manage effective responses to situations as they arise.
Nextiva PSIM can help develop standard operating procedures, evaluate contingency plans and provide feedback on actual incidents as well as crisis management exercises, allowing the user to plan security layouts using 2-D, and 3-D mapping features. It can also optimise placement of security devices to minimise cost.
Operators can run virtual scenarios based on simulated factors such as crowd behaviour, gas or chemical leaks, terror attack or flood, to determine in advance what the implications could be.
Nextiva PSIM addresses the needs of large security operations, whether they have centralised or decentralised command control and communications centres, delivering improved speed, efficiency and intelligence of response, whilst reducing costs.
