Genetec Inc., technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations and business intelligence solutions, announced a major new release of its flagship unified security platform, Security Center.
With version 5.11, customers will have access to every module of Security Center, including Omnicast (video monitoring), Synergis (access control), AutoVu (automatic license plate recognition), Sipelia (intercom) and intrusion monitoring.
"With Security Center 5.11, customers, existing or new, can now benefit from all the value that a unified security system provides right out of the box. This simplified offering eliminates any barrier to entry for organizations looking to get the most out of their security system and move to a unified system,” said Christian Morin, vice president of product engineering and chief security officer at Genetec Inc.
Beyond simplifying the path to unification, Security Center 5.11 includes a wide spectrum of features as standard, including KiwiVision analytics (privacy protector, people counting, security video analytics and camera integrity), visitor management, advanced mapping functions, threat level management and more.
The new version of Security Center also features the brand-new Genetec web app, which can be deployed on any machine/device with a modern browser such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Edge. This allows customers to monitor their facility, quickly respond to incidents in real time, follow guided procedures, collaborate with other operators, and manage card holders, from wherever they are.
The new Genetec Web App extends enterprise security beyond the SOC (security operations center) and empowers users who are not traditional security operators to interact with the security platform based on their role and needs. The app may be used by a security manager wanting to look in on a satellite location remotely, or by a receptionist who needs to manage visitor access, for example. With event monitoring, cardholder management, and incident management, the Genetec Web App goes beyond security monitoring, in an intuitive, lightweight, web-based interface.
The app also simplifies investigations of specific events or incidents where very little is known about what happened except for where and when it occurred. Operators can easily produce reports that focus on specific types of events or investigate everything within a specific area and time range.
Security Center 5.11 brings compatibility with the upcoming Streamvault Edge. Ideally suited for multi-site operations such as banking, retail or businesses with remote or unmanned sites, Streamvault Edge simplifies the migration of existing security equipment to a hybrid-cloud architecture. The solution makes cameras cloud ready and enables secure local storage on cloud managed appliances while removing the need for advanced IT expertise at remote sites.
