CNL Software, a provider of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, announces the selection of its IPSecurityCenter PSIM by Gasunie, the leading Dutch natural gas infrastructure and transportation company. IPSecurityCenter was chosen following a lengthy and detailed tender selection process throughout 2017, and will be delivered by CNL Software’s Dutch partner, Mactwin Security, as part of a ten-year contract. At the recent contract signing ceremony held at the Gasunie Headquarters in Groningen, CNL Software and Mactwin were complimented on the quality of their joint presentation, and also the strength of the relationship that has been forged between all three parties. The selection process saw CNL Software and Mactwin demonstrate the value of IPSecurityCenter against a large number of competitive technologies, reflecting not only the quality of the IPSecurityCenter platform, but also on Mactwin’s ability to present, design and deliver complex security integration and management programs. Integration with IoT devicesIPSecurityCenter is perfectly placed to leverage all technologies that support the overall security mission for Gasunie Whilst PSIM platforms have traditionally focused on core security subsystems, there is increasing demand for companies to address the proliferation of IoT devices, sensors and related subsystems.

We are delighted to have been selected for such a prestigious European project and look forward to working closely with the teams at Mactwin Security and Gasunie." CNL Software’s IPSecurityCenter PSIM Solution provides a single view of organisations critical security and life safety systems, increasing emergency preparedness, delivering intelligence to the point of need and providing process guidance to enhance security responses.
The integration will enable operators to, graphically, view multilayer live video overlays CNL Software, a provider of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software and nuPSYS an innovator in real-time 3D-Visualisation for IoT networks and physical security, are pleased to announce that they have entered a technology partnership. Working together the two companies will bring nuPSYS’s patented 3D visualisation technology, nuSIM, to CNL Software’s IPSecurityCenter PSIM platform for homeland defence, CIP, and corporate security customers across the globe. Accurate 3D mapping The partnership, created under CNL Software’s Technology Alliance Program will allow users to experience unparalleled levels of situational awareness, as all assets, cameras and critical points can be accurately plotted onto the 3D mapping surface within the PSIM solution. It will enable operators to, graphically, view multilayer live video overlays, giving accurate 3D perspectives for real time situation management. Additionally, it will give operators the ability to guide ground staff, more accurately, in the event of an incident. Dmitry Bokotey, nuPSYS’ CTO & Founder comments, “nuSIM is based on nuPSYS’s patented technology, which uses resources mainly from GPU instead of normal memory and CPU thus creating dynamic interactive 3D visualisation without burdening the systems they are running on. Performance is therefore higher than any other solution available on the market today.” James Condron, Global VP Sales & Marketing at CNL Software adds, “CNL Software is committed to working with all technologies that can enhance situation management within the control room. We are proactively integrating new products, which will add value for our IPSecurityCenter customers and nuSIM is certainly one of them. We look forward to working with nuPSYS and its unique technology, on some of the world’s largest and most complex security integration programs.” Visualise unlimited assets The integration of nuSIM with IPSecurityCenter offers a range of benefits to users such as lifelike appearances, which are enabled by nuSIM’s ability to visualise a virtually unlimited number of assets. This provides greater clarity and depth, ensuring a natural feel within IPSecurityCenter. "CNL Software is committed to working with all technologies that can enhance situation management within the control room" IPSecurityCenter and nuSIM share many underlying technologies, allowing full native integration with smooth navigation within 3D environments. This native integration also helps to ensure any detected event can be isolated in a few clicks, allowing operators to focus on resolving incidents without distraction. Add to this nuSIM’s ability to rapidly import 3D information in a number of commonly used formats, with full X, Y and Z coordinate support, and together they become a very powerful 3D security management tool, without the drawbacks typically associated with 3D visualisation. Enhanced effectiveness Reza Ahy, CEO at nuPSYS states, “We are pleased to partner with CNL Software for physical security markets, enabling real-time situational awareness, coupled with instant access to resources required to remotely manage any incident. All the aggregated intelligence can be distributed to other operators to form a shared Common Operating Picture (COP). Our patented Real-Time Visualisation now enables integrated management of physical security information and IP-networks, dramatically improving the effectiveness and cost of operating PSIM, for government, IoT, enterprise and service provider markets worldwide.” The CNL Software and nuPSYS partnership ensures seamless integration of their respective technologies, sales, and marketing resources, with a focus on North America, Europe, and the Middle East.

Partnership will offer real-time situational awareness with maritime detection & tracking data CNL Software, a world leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, has entered into a technology partnership with Automatic Sea Vision (ASV), developers of the first video content analytics (VCA) software editor 100% dedicated to the marine environment. Founded in 2001, ASV develops innovative software solutions designed to automate maritime surveillance using a network of cameras; managing the entire functional chain from the watch to a first non-lethal response. Real-time situational awareness Formalised under the CNL Software Technology Alliance Program (TAP), the partnership will bring together ASV’s maritime video analytics software editor with IP Security Center PSIM integrated situation management solution: offering real-time situational awareness with maritime detection and tracking data analysed in conjunction with data from other connected security systems such as CCTV, access control, radar, GPS tracking and GIS mapping. Port and maritime security by its very nature, requires those responsible to have complete situational awareness at all times; from clamping down on the trafficking of contraband, illegal immigrants and stolen goods to assessing the threats of possible terrorist attacks and dealing with environmental disasters. In aggregating and analysing intelligence data provided from the ASV software and managed by IP Security Center PSIM, organisations can act immediately on security escalations, plan according to trends and continuously improve security and life safety operations. Seamless real-time access to video analytics "More maritime operations are turning to infrared or visible cameras to provide security to ships, installations, platforms and infrastructures" “More maritime operations are turning to infrared or visible cameras to provide security to ships, installations, platforms and infrastructures. How that information is processed once it reaches the control room, is equally important”, says Philippe Waquet, CEO at Automatic Sea Vision. “Our ASV software along with IP Security Center will enable seamless real-time access to video analytics and information gathered from other security systems; greatly increasing the preparedness to respond to potential threats.” “As aviation security has tightened, those intent on criminal activity and terrorism are looking to more accessible targets and by its nature maritime security has a softer perimeter than an airport”, explains James Condron, VP Sales - CNL Software. “CNL Software works with organisations across the globe that are involved with passenger transportation and cargo shipping as well as policing transport networks and homeland security. As such, we understand the increasing importance of hardening nautical perimeters and will continue to work with technologies such as ASV to offer the most innovative, effective security and safety solutions for our maritime customers.”
CNL Software partnered with e-Thele SQD Networks to provide security management system for the South African hospital CNL Software, a world leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, and e-Thele SQD Networks a market leader in the design, implementation and support of Situational Management and PSIM solutions have been chosen to provide a comprehensive security management system for a hospital facility in South Africa. Healthcare security is facing increased violence, crime and vandalism. The security challenge includes maintaining the safety of patients, staff and visitors, the protection of medicines and medical equipment as well as securing facilities and buildings. Mitigation of security incidents is essential as breaches can have life safety consequences, as well as capital and equipment loss, financial penalties and damage to reputation. IPSecurityCenter PSIM is a software based integration and management platform, which connects disparate security systems such as security and building control systems, patient and staff interfaces, RFID patient tagging, nurse call, HR and other business management systems. The system provides control room operators with real-time situation awareness, through a common operating picture (COP) and following an alert, alarm or trigger. “In the first phase of this healthcare project, IPSecurityCenter PSIM will integrate the hospital’s CCTV, access control, fire alarm systems and intercom technologies to offer centralised security management and situational awareness”, explains Wolfgang Engling, Managing Director of e-Thele SQD Networks. “Hospitals across South Africa are facing similar security challenges and are realising that technology is a dependable option to help them reduce this risk. This innovative project will be a flagship in South Africa and a benchmark for others to follow. We are delighted to have been selected to deliver it.” “It is essential for the hospital to provide the highest possible levels of security in the facility while retaining a welcoming environment for patients, visitors and staff”, says James Condron, VP Sales - CNL Software. “IPSecurityCenter offers a balance between these two often competing factors. Hospitals are able to make security systems as discreet as possible, while IPSecurityCenter constantly monitors these systems producing real-time intelligence and situational awareness from across the facility. Getting the right information, to the right people at the right time allows security teams to react faster and more precisely to potential incidents if and when they occur.”
