Software House, part of Tyco Security Products, announced several enhancements to its C•CURE 9000 security and event management system. Predefined alarm response messages enable organizations to adapt specific steps to take in the event of any system alarm. This functionality can provide detailed step-by-step instructions for security personnel and operators, ensuring continuity in response across the organization. With C•CURE 9000, users can leverage the escorted access feature, where select cardholders may be designated as escorted visitors requiring an escort to obtain access to certain restricted areas within a facility. A scalable, intuitive personnel record import from CSV files allows companies to import cardholder information from multiple systems such as ERP and IT. In addition, C•CURE 9000 has been upgraded to Microsoft .NET Framework 4.
