Johnson Controls has updated its Tyco Software House C•CURE 9000 security and event management system with new tools to optimise its security operations. Enhancements include metatags, broadened search capabilities and enhancements in video association, along with adding an additional layer of security with Multi-Factor Authentication mobile integration.
C•CURE 9000 v2.80 users now have the ability to add two-factor authentication without needing to upgrade readers. With this added layer of security, users are notified on their mobile phone the moment their badge is used on a two-factor configured door, and have the option to approve or deny the access request as a second form of authentication, which helps to mitigate lost or stolen cards.
Robust and customisable search capabilities
C•CURE 9000 v2.80 also focusses on enhanced search capabilities with an emphasis on video association strengthening our access-led unification. Smart Search allows users to easily search for object names, object types, and tagged locations throughout the system. In addition, metatags provide an easy way to add attributes to items, allowing for more robust and customisable search capabilities that greatly reduce configuration time.
C•CURE Web was updated with a health diagnostics dashboard which provides a snapshot of how the system is performing
Additionally, C•CURE 9000 v2.80 includes a variety of new views, including the Receptionist Portal, simplifying visitor management with a dedicated dashboard which allows untrained C•CURE 9000 users the ability to manage the entire visitor lifecycle within C•CURE Portal. C•CURE Web was updated with a health diagnostics dashboard which provides a snapshot of how the system is performing over the last seven days.
Automatic device-to-video mapping
The new Security View performs automatic device-to-video mapping to view devices and associated video, live or recorded, closest to an alarm/incident from one intuitive screen thus saving on configuration time. This feature is available for all Tyco cameras including the Illustra product line, as well as all third-party video partners.
“The addition of mobile multi-factor authentication, coupled with our security operations enhancements in how we tag, search, and associate video makes C•CURE 9000 more accessible, and data more manageable than ever before,” said Ashley Tousignant, Sr. product manager, Access Control. “We look forward to continuing to provide more secure, intuitive solutions through our own products, as well as through our trusted partners.”
