Indianapolis, Ind. – (July 21, 2014) – STANLEY Security announced today that Joshua Jackson, Director – Global Product Integration, has been elected as Vice Chairman of the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA). Jackson will join new Chairman, Mohammad Soleimani, CTO and Executive Vice President of Kastle Systems, to help develop specifications for enabling standards-based sharing of digital data and intelligence throughout the physical security and enterprise ecosystems.

“Mohammad and Joshua bring us strong technology, commercial and industry leadership skills,” said David Bunzel, Executive Director of the PSIA. “They will be powerful evangelists for how standards-based physical security systems can help the industry create new opportunities for systems integration and data sharing, while solving cost and complexity challenges.”

As PSIA Vice Chairman, Jackson will work closely with Soleimani to educate the industry about the compelling business case for standards-based interoperability for physical security systems. He will play a crucial role in expanding the organization’s member base, and will help active members define strategies necessary to specify and/or adopt and implement PSIA specifications.

“The PSIA specifications make it easier for integrators to offer high-quality solutions with less integration time and lower total cost of ownership,” Jackson said. “I am looking forward to working with Mohammad, David and the rest of the board to help the industry understand our use case and encourage rapid adoption of PSIA specifications.”

At STANLEY Security, Jackson is responsible for driving product integration strategies and partnership efforts throughout STANLEY’s national customer base. As an active member of the security industry for nearly 20 years, Jackson has had valuable experience in large system sales, product management, product marketing and currently offers integral support to STANLEY’s first-class engineering team.
