As part of the company's continuing growth and worldwide expansion, Magos Systems, a state-of-the-art radar technology and perimeter protection solutions provider, announces that it is expanding into the North American market with veteran security executive, Yaron Zussman as general manager. Founded in 2007 in Israel, Magos first specialised in advanced radar solutions for the military and defense markets. In 2015, Magos’ technology was declassified, allowing the company to focus on developing best-in-class systems for the commercial security market. Today, Magos radars are used in over 30 countries in critical infrastructure, data centers, electric utility sub stations, and oil refineries as well as in other commercial verticals like vineyards and car lots. Now, Magos is positioned to see increased adoption of its solutions in the U.S. Magos has also welcomed both Moshe Levi and Javier Arias as program managers to the North American operation Security management systems Magos has also welcomed both Moshe Levi and Javier Arias as program managers to the North American operation. Moshe Levi brings over 18 years of experience in the IT and security industries to the team. Levi holds a degree in computer science from the Academic College of Tel-Aviv. Prior to joining Magos, Levi worked with companies such as FST Biometrics and spent two years with ML-TEC Consulting as a technology and business development consultant and product manager. Levi also worked with OnSSI as a product manager and held the position of director of partner alliance with BriefCam. Javier Arias has spent over 20 years in the security industry and holds a degree in computer engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. He also previously worked with FST Biometrics. Arias gained experience as a project manager for G4S Technology, as a security consultant with Critigen, and worked with CH2M Hill and Security Management Systems for almost a decade. Enabling excellent performance “We are excited to expand our customer base and technology partners in North America, and we look forward to the new opportunities this strategic move will lead to,” said Yaron Zussman, general manager of Magos America. The Magos product offering includes a variety of ground-based radar solutions with varying coverage range for a broad base of applications, along with an automated radar management software. Magos radar technology allows for 24/7 all-condition detection of a protected site in a cost-effective manner. The technology boasts an ultra-high range accuracy, enabling excellent performance and false alarm reduction even in the most cluttered environments. Cost-efficient solution SR-1000 is Magos’ radar for larger-size applications with a detection range of 1000 meters for vehicles and over 800 meters for humansThe SR-1000 is Magos’ radar for larger-size applications with a detection range of 1000 meters for vehicles and over 800 meters for humans, allowing for the earliest possible detection and over 200 acres of coverage. The SR-500 features a detection range of up to 700 meters for vehicles and 400 meters for humans. The SR-250 is Magos’ newest solution in its perimeter protection lineup. Utilizing the same Multiple Input and Multiple Output (MIMO) and digital beam forming technologies found in the SR-1000 and SR-500, it can cover an area of more than 15 acres, detecting targets at up to 250 meters. With azimuth coverage of 120-degrees and elevation coverage of 30-degrees, the radar provides superior coverage in all weather and lighting conditions, providing a cost-efficient solution that delivers military grade performance. The SR-250 consumes less than three watts of power and boasts a small size, making it another ideal, easy-to-install solution for both static and mobile deployments. Yielding wider coverage Magos also offers customers its Magos Area Surveillance System (MASS), a fully automated software for handling, monitoring and logging security events based upon inputs from an unlimited number of sensors, including radars and video surveillance cameras. MASS is able to seamlessly integrate with existing video management software (VMS) to create a more wholistic approach to perimeter protection. Once a target enters a pre-defined area of interest, MASS triggers an event in the customer's VMS and cues all the relevant pan-tilt-zoom cameras to continuously follow all detected threats, capable of following over 100 targets simultaneously. This enables Magos to deliver a fully integrated perimeter protection solution that covers the same area with fewer sensors while yielding wider coverage in all weather conditions.
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.

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.

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.”
