Total Situational Awareness

It begins with a single system. It could be an access control system or a video system, but for a time it is enough to serve the company’s needs.

Integrating Physical and Cyber Security: Strategies that Work

Security principles have not changed much in the past 30 years, but the application of those principles is shifting daily. Addressing integrated security disciplines to ensure a cohesive and collaborative security solutions environment in any organization requires a number of coordinated things to happen efficiently.

Understanding Video Business Intelligence in Retail Environments

During the last 10-15 years, the retail industry has experienced a transformation from traditional brick and mortar store to newer technology platforms such as e-commerce, powerful search engines and social media. As a result, brick and mortar retailers have had to re-visit their strategic priorities to focus on higher levels of customer experience, channel convergence plans and new marketing and merchandizing approaches. Alongside, price pressure and lower margins continue to require retailers to drive higher efficiencies in store operations through improved workforce management, product placement and store layouts.

New Fire Protection Essential

Texas Children’s Hospital recently added a new high-rise facility, the Pavilion for Women, to its already impressive five-building campus in the heart of the Texas Medical Center in Houston.

Providing Security

IP technology makes it easier to secure a campus environment. This is true even for very large corporate, healthcare and education campuses where many points of security concern are spread across large geographic areas.

Safer More Secure Campuses

To enhance the quality of the educational experience as well as the safety of their students, many schools and universities today view campus safety as a top priority.

Cost-Effective Compliance

The FBI established the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) division in 1992, and it is now the bureau’s largest division.



Curbside Security

Of all the accoutrements of civilization—and they are myriad, from plumbing to Pop- Tarts—perhaps none is more routinely taken for granted than the lowly fire hydrant.

Todays Threat Landscape

Cyberthieves and hackers are always looking for new ways to obtain sensitive information. As Web browsers have become the common interface for accessing information that drives business activity, browsers have become the primary target of theft and data leakage.

VSS Monitoring Recognized as Industry's Leading NPB Provider

From The Edge To The Cloud

System designers must ensure that sufficient storage is available to archive video for the required length of time and at the required frame rate and resolution.

Video Security

Cloud computing and storage may be one of the most disruptive technologies to the video security industry we’ve seen yet. Already growing dramatically in the IT world, the slower-to-adopt-new-technology security space is watching closely, with several tentative applications offered.

Now is the Time to Upgrade Your VMS Software

In the realm of security and video surveillance, as in other markets, “new and improved” is in demand. The latest version of any product can do more, do it better, do it easier -- and customers are conditioned to stay current with the latest technologies.

Fastmetrics Implements Corero DDoS Defense Technology

Fastmetrics, an Internet service provider, has deployed Corero Network Security's Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Defense technology to detect and block network- and application-layer DDoS attacks and forms of malware-based attacks.

The Perfect Fit

The business proposition of Plato’s Closet, a popular consignment store chain, differs from those of upscale department stores and big box retail outlets.

To The Rescue

Several months ago, I noticed a set of tire tracks running across my front lawn. Knowing that neither my wife nor I enjoy offroading on our yard, I did some investigative work.

Safety On The Railway

How does one of the largest railway companies in the world protect its passengers from terrorist attacks and sabotage?
