IBM and CNL debut IPSecurityCenter

Computer Network Limited, a leading provider of integrated security management software, has announced that their latest software will feature on the IBM stand at IFSEC 2008. IBM and CNL will demonstrate the advanced IPSecurityCenter, which offers unparalleled levels of security by connecting disparate CCTV, intruder alarms, fire alarms, access control, personal alarms, building management systems, digital recording and business systems.

IPSecurityCenter is one of the most advanced integrated security management software solutions available; delivering the risk management, security control and co-ordinated response needed for today’s security challenges. It provides an independent platform to integrate, manage and maintain existing security systems and assets through an easy to use graphical interface.

Johannes zu Eltz, global sales manager for IBM Global Technology Services says "As a recognized leader in today's growing security market, we offer clients a broad range of solutions, from consulting and implementation to managed services. IBM's world-class technology and expertise, combined with IPSecurityCenter from CNL, helps clients protect their information and physical assets, reduce risk, and increase efficiency and productivity."

Keith Bloodworth, CEO of CNL, says "Whilst CNL have been driving the convergence between Security and IT for several years with our IP based security software, we are now working with system integrators to deploy this technology. IBM has a significant presence in the logical security market and will bring much needed skills to the physical security market. Over the last decade developments have taken place to ensure computers and networks are secure, however, physical security has been slower to take advantage of new technology."
