CNL announces partnership with Sphere Security

WOKING, UK and ST. ASAPH, UK – 16 December 09, 2009 - CNL, a leading developer of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software and Sphere Security Limited, one of the UK's leading security system integrators, jointly announce they have entered into a partnership agreement. Through this partnership CNL will supply its award winning software, IPSecurityCenter, to Sphere Security to market as a UK Certified Partner.

This partnership will create new business opportunities for Sphere Security with both public and private organisations who wish to centrally manage their physical security infrastructure. IPSecurityCenter will add to Sphere Security’s impressive portfolio of industry leading security solutions. It will give CNL access to Sphere Security’s expertise in network architecture and its thorough understanding of the UK security market.

“One of the key factors in making this strategic decision was the world class projects Sphere has delivered,” said Keith Bloodworth CEO of CNL “what’s more, their clients have been very complimentary, praising them on the quality of their project delivery, from design and consulting through to after sales care and maintenance. We have been particularly impressed by their ability to work collaboratively with clients, to understand their needs and deliver best of breed solutions.

Nigel Sperring, Managing Director of Sphere Security comments “What makes IPSecurityCenter unique is its vendor independence, which is both technology and device agnostic, allowing clients to maximise the use of their existing infrastructure. This is particularly significant in the current financial climate, where our clients require intelligent centralised security systems which provide a solid return on investment.”

“We have already started to talk to clients about this exciting technology, and the feedback has been very promising. We have a strong presence in the critical infrastructure sector, which fits in well with IPSecurityCenter as it has been deployed in a wide range of critical environments across the globe.”

The two companies will work closely to take this solution to a wide range of organisations, including critical infrastructure, corporate enterprises and government agencies.
