Vantage is a very robust platform and made to integrate multiple systems, to allow complete situational awareness including workflows, resource management, and audit trials. The Vantage Command and Control system takes the sub-systems and uses the information from each to make it easier to handle difficult situations consistently through workflows and resource management. Integrated into our Vantage Command and Control platform is our SiPass access control platform, video management system and mesh network. It’s a very capable system with a great track record that helps the port manage their landside traffic more efficiently, stay compliant with the federal regulations, and provide work flows that can help them manage the port business. This includes a key aspect of managing visitors that both do and don’t carry a TWIC card.”

And, Vikas Butaney, Director Product Management – US provides an update regarding “3 Ways Cisco is Enhancing the Industrial IoT

“As the Internet of Things (IoT) gains widespread adoption, we now have the opportunity to accelerate business outcomes. Whether a business needs to create agile supply chains, automate manufacturing processes, or reduced operating costs, Cisco Industrial IoT solutions and products make it easier to innovate, boost productivity and derive value from IoT data.

The new IoT products and solutions deliver business impact as part of the digital transformation process taking shape across organizations. As a massive source of raw data, IoT offers a major opportunity for organizations to enable digital transformation.

The IoT initiatives that fuel digital transformation within our customers are centered on specific business outcomes. With such an orientation we have introduced new IoT products and solutions to support evolutionary adoption of IoT tied to business results and supported with architectures and Cisco validated designs to accelerate time to value.”

For more information:

Dave Schmitt, Cisco, Solutions Architect, IoT Vertical Solutions Group: Utilities, also told us, “Utilities are especially popular, high-profile targets for attacks. According to the Cisco Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, 73% of utility IT security professionals say they’ve suffered a public security breach, compared with an average of 55% in other industries. Most U.S. utilities have already undertaken substantial security measures throughout many parts of their systems. However, the nature of cyber threats and vulnerabilities keeps changing. U.S. utilities have, for several years, been deploying IoT technology (aka Smart Grid) because it enables significant business and operational benefits: increased grid reliability, enhanced integration of renewables and other distributed energy resources, reduced operating costs, and more. However, all of this opportunity comes with the tradeoffs of increased complexity and new risks.”

EMC /  

Ken Mills, EMC², Global Marketing and CTO, Surveillance and Security, told us, “We have launched five new solutions for surveillance. We’ve partnered with Avnet to build a compute plus storage bundle that greatly simplifies the deployment of an enterprise surveillance solution. With ATOS, a global partner of EMC, we are working to develop and bring to market surveillance storage as a service. As customers begin to consider cloud for their surveillance storage needs, we want to make sure they have a best in class enterprise option.

We have also launched a surveillance solution with VCE, the Converged Platforms Division of EMC. VCE brings together VMware, Cisco and EMC together in a single package for large-scale surveillance deployments. The VCE solutions for surveillance can handle thousands of cameras in a single rack with one number to call for support. It has never been easier to take advantage of this kind of pedigree in surveillance. And, finally we are launching a partner solution with Axis, Genetec and Avaya at ISC West. This partnership delivers ‘LINK,’ the security industry’s first validated surveillance solution that helps secure video from the device all the way to the storage. It offers a cyber-hardened solution that provides scalability and reliability for enhanced security management while helping to reduce the possibility of a cyber-security breach. The partnership ensures that customers have the best solution to deliver surveillance at scale with the confidence they expect from market leaders in surveillance.

Lastly, we are releasing our second generation of the Video Surveillance Storage platform. We strongly believe that the surveillance market needs unique solutions and to that end we have brought our 6-9s enterprise class storage platforms to the surveillance market. Due to the success we had with our first generation Video Surveillance Storage (VSS), it was a no-brainer to take our most current generation storage platform and customize it for the surveillance market.”

G4S  /

Mr. Robert Dodge, CPP, Senior VP, G4S Corporate Risk Services, said, “On a Friday in October 2015, a disgruntled customer arrived at a leading, international publisher’s New York City headquarters and insisted on seeing the company’s CEO. When the receptionist asked the man to leave, he became aggressive and made threats against staff and the CEO before leaving the building. Concerned about the potential for violence, the company reached out to G4S to respond to the threat. Within hours, workplace violence expert Robert Dodge, CPP, Senior VP of G4S Corporate Risk Services, deployed armed protection agents at the CEOs Manhattan residence to protect him and his family over the weekend.”

PortSys /

Michael Oldham, Chief Executive Officer, PortSys, told us, “We protect access for one of the major defense departments in Europe. Every item that’s purchased in that country, or around the world, is procured through systems we protect. Whether you are buying a pencil or a battleship, PortSys protects the access to those systems. We also have several critical infrastructure customers who supply power to their regions of the world. These customers are in the United States and in Europe, but that’s about as specific as I can get as these organizations understandably maintain a high level of secrecy about their infrastructure and security. We all know how critical the electrical infrastructure is and how it has continued to be in the news as a potential source of vulnerability. PortSys provides security and access control technologies for these organizations so they can continue to provide electricity to their constituents. These are tens of millions of people who depend on these organizations for everyday life. These are absolutely crucial services and are among some of the most targeted institutions in the world. We are proud to be part of their defense.”

Border Management Technologies Summit to Asia

Asian nations have been developing their borders significantly in the past few years. Many Asian airports now have the latest biometric and passenger naming systems available, however, many nations are still catching up, and with more passengers flying through Asian nation’s development on their borders is critical. We are pleased to bring our successful Border Management Technologies Summit to Asia. Our event will focus on the current border management systems in place across Asia-Pacific. Many countries in Asia have separate borders from the mainland, such as islands, which makes it harder to manage the borders.

The maritime environment in Asia is critical and many countries rely on fisheries to generate their country’s GDP. With this in mind surveillance of the maritime domain is an important aspect of border security in Asia. Our event will focus on the challenges of managing coastal borders and tracking migration through the maritime domain. Border Management Technologies Summit Asia will also discuss the development of Integrated Border Management (IBM) systems in Asia and review the capabilities of a number of nations in Asia.
