The AMAG Security Engineering Symposium is unique for Salient because the forum enables us to collaborate and strengthen our engagements on several different levels

AMAG's seminar provided networking and engagement with experts about technology trends and end user expectations

AMAG Technology hosted its 15th Annual Security Engineering Symposium (SES) in Orlando, Florida at the Rosen Shingle Creek February 19-21, 2016. Attendees experienced a weekend of educational seminars, networking and engagement with experts about technology trends and end user expectations. AMAG Technology is the worldwide leader of end-to-end security management solutions for access control, video management and identity management.

AMAG products educational sessions

AMAG conducted educational sessions about their newest products: Symmetry™ GUEST Visitor Management, policy-based software Symmetry CONNECT™ and Symmetry™ v8.1 scheduled for release in Q2. President, Matt Barnette held a session about Product Vision and the future, and Senior Vice President of Sales, Kurt Takahashi presented on Unified Security Technology. Break-out sessions offered attendees opportunities to learn about several technologies that integrate with Symmetry Access Control and Symmetry CompleteView Video Management. Special sessions included: “How to do Business with Consultants,” “How to Design a Symmetry system,” and “Why Yale University chose Symmetry for their Security Management Platform.”

“Our 15th Annual SES attracted the best of the best again this year, including many new faces in the consultant, customer and reseller communities,” said AMAG Technology, Vice President of Strategic Accounts, Jody Ross. “The action-packed agenda provided insight into AMAG Technology and the direction the company is heading with new solutions for our customers. The educational sessions and networking opportunities proved valuable to all who attended.”

“I’ve attended this event several times because of the incredible value I receive,” said Ross & Baruzzini, Senior Systems Project Manager, Ted Wheaton. “I like to learn about AMAG, as well as learn about their technology partners and where they are heading in the future with their product development. Not only do I learn about technology trends, but there is a lot of time for networking with consultants, manufacturers, integrators and end users.”

Strategic technology partners

The strategic technology partners who sponsored the event valued the interaction with the consultants, integrators, end users, AMAG staff and other partners. Technology partners included: ASSA ABLOY, HID Global, Hikvision, NEC, Salient Systems, Winsted and Zenitel/Vingtor-Stentofon, FST Biometrics and Risk 360.

AMAG’s Security Engineering
Symposium is an original event
that’s been often copied, but it’s
never been duplicated

“The SES is set up in a way that affords ASSA ABLOY many opportunities to be in front of the customer,” said Donna Chapman, Security Consultant Relations Manager, ASSA ABLOY. “Between the small group break-out sessions, networking and social time, I believe we had several opportunities to do a deep dive on our products and partnership with AMAG. This was one of the best events I’ve attended.”

Dan Rothrock, Senior Vice President Global Strategic Alliances, Zenitel USA, Inc. said, “It’s hard to believe we’ve been doing this for 15 years. AMAG’s Security Engineering Symposium is an original event that’s been often copied, but it’s never been duplicated. We are looking for relationships. We are looking for return on investment, and we are looking for ideas for the future. All those things come out of this event every year that we attend. It’s been the best event for a return on our investment from a dollar AND relationship standpoint, and from what it helps us develop for the security industry. We are looking forward to coming back for our 16th year next year.”

“The AMAG Security Engineering Symposium is unique for Salient because the forum enables us to collaborate and strengthen our engagements on several different levels,” said Tom Chamard, Executive Vice President, Salient Systems. “On one front, we’re collaborating with various AMAG resources with regards to our OEM strategy and integration enhancements of our joint platform. In addition, we view this event as the opportunity to reinforce our value propositions to integrators, end users and consultants alike. Not only do we get to extend and refine our OEM strategy with our partner, we have the opportunity to continue to support these channels and hopefully renew and fortify our position within the VMS space. The combination of these factors makes the SES conference an uncommon value for Salient.”

Randy Smith, President, Winsted said, “This is the best event we do all year long. AMAG’s SES allows us to get in front of important decision makers in the security industry. It’s a key marketing event for Winsted and we make it a priority to sponsor and participate every year.”

“I think this event was great,” said Yaron Zussman, CEO, FST Biometrics America. “It’s rare that you get an opportunity to see so many consultants, VAR's, and end users over a period of a weekend. For a new technology like IMID Access that is a fusion of facial recognition and behavioural biometrics, this has been great exposure to let people experience and understand our product. AMAG’s SES has generated much excitement for our product and how it integrates with AMAG’s Symmetry Access Control System.”
