Next Level Security Systems Releases Enterprise-Class Security Management Platform
Next Level Security Systems, a provider of a new breed of unified, networked security solutions, recently announced the expansion of its NLSS Gateway product suite with the introduction of the NLSS Gateway 5000, an enterprise-class unified appliance that integrates all security management functions from the ground up, and offers customized management tools to help customers optimally manage large surveillance systems.
It manages hundreds of cameras and access points while delivering superior price-performance, reduced complexity and energy requirements when compared to traditional server-based systems.
The NLSS Gateway 5000 is a security management platform that combines video management, access control, video analytics and intrusion into a single, easy-to-use networked platform. The intuitive and Web-based user interface allows users to centrally manage and control all system features from anywhere at anytime. To minimize complex installations, the NLSS Gateway 5000 includes advanced deployment tools such as auto-discovery and provisioning, and is based on industry standards. A sophisticated event management system allows for streamlined reporting to enable an enterprise view of the entire security infrastructure.
“Unified security management is demanded by enterprises that have complex and large-scale security deployments, making it appropriate that we tailor a solution to simplify the management of these sophisticated systems,” said Peter Jankowski, Chairman and CEO, Next Level Security Systems. “The NLSS Gateway 5000 is optimized for enterprises looking to streamline management of their IP devices with one appliance, while continuing to offer the mobility necessary to maintain a high level of situational awareness.”
The NLSS Gateway 5000 delivers a consolidated user interface, unique video search tools and simplified export of video evidence to allow users to make more informed decisions while maximizing their technology investments. Next Level Remote Management Services (RMS), a hosted service that enables the management of multiple NLSS Gateways across sites, can be added to the base package for enhanced mobility. RMS draws on improvements in cloud-computing technology to offer more than other hosted service models currently used in the security market.
A customized management tool that enables users to group devices, users, cardholders and other assets such as floor plans or building layouts provides additional flexibility. The system also allows the allocation of customized roles and permissions for different users to control system access levels. Other features include enhanced system health monitoring, additional languages and 2nd generation face capture. The Gateway 5000 supports the recently released 3.0 version of the Gateway software, which adds NextDetect analytic reporting, audio alerts and additional camera support.
