Partnerships and Integrations at ISC West

ISC West is one of the largest shows in the security industry, which means all the most influential companies are there. When I ask people why they love to attend the show, they always tell me, while it is a good move for business; their favorite part is seeing their partners at other companies. These are the people they may work with on a daily basis but are not fortunate to see face-to-face very often.

While the show is a good place to catch up with existing partners, it is also a good place to preview products and solutions from other companies to see if a future partnership or integration would be beneficial to both companies.

While on the subject of partnerships, I thought I might share with you some announcements of the newest partnerships and integrations I got while at the show.

LifeSafety Power and Mercury Security

LifeSafety Power Inc. announced integration with Mercury Security at the show this year. End users can now obtain intelligent alerts and power solution testing natively through one single user interface through the Authentic Mercury Security hardware. This new functionality, part of the growing LifeSafety Power and Mercury Security partnership, brings proactive real-time reporting and delivers mission critical information on overall system health before it fails.

Morse Watchmans and Software House, part of Tyco Security Products

Morse Watchmans demonstrated many products at the show this year, among them was the integration between its KeyWatcher Touch key control system and C•CURE 9000 v2.50 Security and Event Management System from Software House, part of Tyco Security Products. Together, Software House C•CURE 9000 and Morse Watchman’s KeyWatcher Touch key control system allow administrators to streamline the process of securing, controlling and tracking keys for their facility. At the head office or remotely, the integration provides users with more effective and efficient management of personnel, credentials and assets.  

NVIDIA and (what seems like) Everyone!

This year at NVIDIA’s booth, they focused on the growing popularity of AI cities and how their partnerships with Aeryon, Aqueti, Avigilon, BriefCam, Dahua, Hikvision, Milestone, MotionDSP, Motionloft, Netradyne, RAD, Sensetimeand VIMOC to create smarter, safer environments. These companies partner with NVIDIA to use the company’s edge-to-cloud GPU computing platform to take their innovations to the next level.
