Genetec will continue the cybersecurity and privacy discussion as a sponsoring guest on the ASIS Foundation ‘General Session’ panel series, Thursday morning, 15th September.

Security Center 5.5

At ASIS 2016, Genetec will showcase its latest version of Security Center, the company’s unified IP security platform that combines access control, video surveillance, ALPR, and SIP communications features. Security Center 5.5 offers a new disaster recovery mode, enhanced levels of encryption and authentication focused on cybersecurity, supporting its ‘Security of Security’ measures with end-to-end encryption via secure real-time transport protocol (SRTP) including multicast environments, augmented video archiving and export management capabilities, and new choices for supported access control hardware. With innovative capabilities designed to help organizations better secure their sites, version 5.5 gives administrators greater control and protection of their security infrastructure.

New Operational Decision Support Software

Genetec plans to unveil a new decision support system designed to offer new levels of situational intelligence, visualization, and superior incident management. This new system will work in conjunction with Security Center to simplify an operator's tasks and decision-making process during routine activities and adverse situations. This new solution will address the operational needs of larger, multi-site deployments found in transportation, factories, government facilities and higher education institutions by giving operators full control during the entire management cycle of incidents.

By intelligently qualifying incoming data from thousands of sensors and security devices, events, and alarms, this new solution will offer greater situational intelligence that exposes the true nature of events. Working with this greater insight and data, security personnel will be better equipped to handle day-to-day tasks and threats. The new Genetec decision support system will additionally feature post-incident capabilities, including sophisticated reporting and system auditing to ensure both internal and external compliance, when needed.

Latest version of AutoVu

Genetec will feature the latest version of its AutoVu™ automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) solutions, highlighting the newest tools for law enforcement and parking. Along with the latest generation of Sharp and SharpX ALPR camera hardware on display, visitors to the Genetec booth will be able to learn about AutoVu Managed Services, a turnkey, cloud-based solution that allows parking customers to outsource their IT hardware management requirements to Genetec. Parking end-users will be able to get a demo of Genetec Free-Flow, a new module that helps increase parking efficiency by providing real-time inventory of illegally parked vehicles and expired parking permissions in monitored parking lots.
