CNL Software, Vanguard Integrated Solutions form technology partnership

Companies share the view that video intelligence should move away from closed systems


GLOBAL RELEASE – February 26, 2013 - CNL Software, a world leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM), and Vanguard Integrated Solutions a leading provider of Security Products and IP-Based Integrated Solutions, announce that they have formed a technology partnership.

 The two companies share the view that video intelligence should move away from closed systems, moving to open platforms allowing greater interoperability with other security assets, and thereby allowing for more effective security systems. The partnership, created under the CNL Software Technology Alliance Program, will therefore allow existing users of Vanguard’s products and users of IPSecurityCenter™ PSIM to adopt technology from either manufacturer.

 Vanguard provides customers with the highest quality and extremely reliable portfolio of Security Products and IP-Based Integrated Solutions. Vanguard’s digital video recording system has an open platform architecture designed to be able to record and display high quality images from a wide range of cameras. Its rich history in networking has placed the company at the forefront in assisting clients to simplify and consolidate their Security infrastructures through IP convergence.

 "Building and maintaining strong relationships with technology partners such as CNL Software is key to enabling customers to create state of the art systems which meet today’s security challenges”, says Osama Qafiti, General Manger at Vanguard Integrated Solutions. “CNL Software’s PSIM technology is ideal for a range of sectors which require high levels of security, such as banks, oil & gas facilities and other critical infrastructure."

 IPSecurityCenter is the ultimate PSIM software based integration and management platform. It connects and manages disparate building and security technologies such as video surveillance, life critical systems, radar, analytics, HVAC, PIDS, GPS tracking and GIS mapping. Through aggregating intelligence from these systems, it allows organizations to react faster and more precisely to incidents. IPSecurityCenter provides operators with real-time Situational Awareness through a Common Operating Picture (COP) and following an alert, alarm or event presents step-by-step process guidance, ensuring complete compliance to security policies.

 "CNL Software is committed to working with the world's leading vendors as part of our Technology Alliance Program (TAP), and Vanguard with their strong range of Security and Surveillance products is a perfect example," comments Lee Wagstaffe, Technical Account Manager at CNL Software. "We look forward to working together with Vanguard to help end users create best of breed security solutions.”
