ISC East 2007 will commence at 9:00 a.m. today, September 11, at the Javits Convention Center in New York.
Not only will the show feature exhibits by nearly 400 manufacturers and service providers, but it also will have a great line-up of special exhibits and pavilions such as the Urban Security show-within-a-show, Smarthome@ISC, and a debut exhibit that I’m very excited to see, the Security Operation Center.
The Security Operations Center is expected to be the largest demonstration ever of the convergence of information security and physical security. It’s been publicized as a best-of-breed, multi-vendor example of convergence technology that will highlight the security and business benefits of combining physical and information security.
More than 25 manufacturers are expected display their latest IP-based products at the Security Operations Center, which will provide attendees with the opportunity of experiencing convergence at its very best. Solutions will focus on four different market sectors consisting of government, education, retail and banking.
In addition, “ask the experts” panel discussions where security professionals can gain insight on two important questions: “What is the bandwidth?” and “Is my network secure?” These sessions will take place several times a day, both days of the show. Educational materials and guides and Standard Operating Procedures will be available.
Companies currently participating include: Agent VI, ASSA ABLOY, Axis Communications, Canon, CBL Systems, DeWalt, Exacq Technologies, IP Video Corporation, Milestone Systems, On-Net Surveillance Systems, Pivot3, S2 Security Corporation, Transition Networks, and Viscount Systems.
The Security Operations Center will feature IP surveillance video, networked access control, intrusion detection, wired and wireless network security products, enterprise class servers, software management platforms, and robust storage networks.
