Vanderbilt Industries

Vanderbilt, a provider of state-of-the-art security systems, announces a new partnership with Citel Spa, a premier supplier of physical security information management (PSIM) software to Italy’s financial and industrial sector.

Centrax-PSIM

Citel Spa uses IT solutions to improve security, safety and Building Management processes, supporting operations and management with compliance to PSIM paradigm and Business Continuity rules. The company works with the majority of Italy’s leading banks and financial services providers, and has developed an enviable reputation for the performance and reliability of its Centrax-PSIM. Citel works closely with third party organisations to integrate their hardware and software based technology into its pioneering Centrax-PSIM operating platform.

As part of Vanderbilt’s ability to offer a cutting edge and flexible security solution that can help streamline an operation, the company has adopted the CEI-ABI protocol for its EN 50131 compliant SPC intrusion detection system especially defined for the Italian financial sector. CEI-ABI will be included in the forthcoming SPC 3.8, which will allow it to be fully integrated with Centrax.

Nils Fazzini, General Manager at Citel, stated, “In the Italian Financial sector, security is obviously a major concern and being able to control, monitor and manage proactively disparate situations via our Centrax platform enhances the ability of personnel to identify and proactively resolve situations. This is the beginning of what I expect to be a very productive relationship with Vanderbilt and I’m delighted that we now have the integration with its SPC solution.”

SPC solution

Designed with ease of use in mind, SPC’s in-built flexibility means that it is perfect for use in the financial sector. With its modular design, embedded internet server and support for wireless detectors, it not only meets today’s requirements efficiently and cost effectively, but also offers a high degree of future proofing. Furthermore, to cater for changes to layouts within banks, it can also be reconfigured and extended when necessary. Just as importantly, to reduce disruptive and costly false alarms, SPC boasts extensive automatic and manual facilities for event verification and, as a further aid to dependable operation, all units in the range have integrated emergency power sources.

Valerio Vittone, Vanderbilt’s ‎Country Head for Italy, concluded, “We have experienced a great deal of success within Italy’s financial sector and our new partnership with Citel Spa will take this to the next level. The high-end operability we have developed in SPC 3.8 means that the entire system can be centrally managed, monitored and maintained via Centrax which, as well as ensuring maximum security, is incredibly cost effective and easy to use.”
