Matt Barnette, VP Sales & Marketing at AMAG, comments: "This partnership is in-line with our view of offering end users with leading technology for managing their entire physical security operations in a common operating picture (COP). Extending our ability to work with other technology vendors will allow best of breed solutions that complement our extensive range of solutions, ensuring the security and safety of people and property."
"CNL has long demonstrated its commitment to work with leading suppliers in the global security industry, with over 30,000 systems deployed in over 110 countries AMAG has shown it has an compelling suite of leading products," comments Matthew Kushner, President, CNL Americas. "Physical security operations no matter what size or vertical market have three core elements - people, systems and processes. If we look at a vast majority of security operations around the globe these elements are working in isolation. By allowing these systems to work in a cohesive and intelligent way, we can significantly harden security, reduce costs and reduce risks. Our continued strategy to work with our Technology Alliance Partners (TAP) ensures this is achievable at a lower cost with greater functionality."
The TAP program was initiated by CNL to allow interoperability between disparate security technologies, giving end users the ability to create optimised solutions for risk reduction within their organisations. It provides TAP partners with a device driver kit (DDK) to allow faster and deeper integration within the CNL partner ecosystem.
Together AMAG and CNL will offer tailored solutions to a wide spectrum of markets including government, commercial, education, transportation, healthcare and banking.
