Pivot3 Delivers Real Time Access and Control to Mission-Critical Video Surveillance Environments

Major update offers security teams higher video stream density as well as reduced cost per desktop and video stream resulting in lower TCO and improved situational awareness.

Pivot3, a leading provider of intelligent infrastructure solutions, today announced the Virtual Security Operations Center (Virtual SOC), designed to address the need for security teams to access client workstations running video surveillance and other related systems in multiple locations without using expensive, dedicated client workstation hardware. With the Pivot3 Virtual SOC, security teams can now get fully functional security workstation capabilities – including video surveillance, access control, PSIM, and other security-related systems – on more devices, more securely and more cost effectively than desktop workstations.

Mission-critical security environments require remote and immediate access to video and other security data coming from cameras and devices at multiple locations to improve incident response times and situational awareness. Until now, however, these type of security operations centers have relied on dedicated, expensive physical workstations to process video streams and integrated security data, which require extremely high levels of compute power and exposes data to potential unauthorized access. Furthermore, physical workstations lack critical fail-over and high availability capabilities and are cumbersome to manage and administer.

The Pivot3 Virtual SOC delivers fully functional client workstation capability to any device including low-cost thin/zero clients, remote client PCs and laptops, video walls and mobile devices. Replacing expensive graphics-enabled workstations with flexible, secure thin- and zero-clients reduces upfront capital equipment costs and on-going maintenance and management expenses. Video data is stored and secured in the Virtual SOC’s central storage system while only a secure, encrypted desktop image is streamed to the remote device, ensuring that all sensitive information remains protected and secured at the central host site. This also enables the security team to share video with outside agencies and organizations in a more immediate, secure and bandwidth-efficient fashion. The Pivot3 Virtual SOC works with any video management software, regardless of brand.

“Security teams must have the ability to access video and related systems securely on any device, including mobile clients, to facilitate a faster and more intelligent response to an incident,” said Brandon Reich, Vice President, Security and IoT, Pivot3. “The Pivot3 Virtual SOC delivers virtualized video workstation capability that provides better security, faster remediation and a rich mobile experience for enhanced situational awareness, and provides compelling economics since it eliminates the need for expensive, dedicated workstations.”

Organizations with distributed locations such as university, corporate, and medical campus environments, airports, safe cities, casinos, entertainment complexes, and correctional facilities all benefit from high-performance, virtual security workstations to provide real-time insight in the event of an incident. A security manager or agency can leverage the Pivot3 Virtual SOC to deliver real-time, fully functional security systems to any mobile device in use by distributed security personnel, reducing their risk through better situational awareness and faster response.

“Within mission-critical security environments, organizations require a scalable and easy-to-manage solution that maintains the integrity of mission-critical video and data,” said Todd Brown, President, Affinitech, Inc. “The Pivot3 Virtual SOC exceeds all expectations by delivering a cost-effective replacement for physical workstations, improving ROI while increasing operator visibility.”
