Framingham, Mass. – S2 Security Corporation (S2), the leader in IP-based integrated physical security systems, today publicly launched S2 Global, a better way to manage distributed physical security systems. S2 Global is a flexible and expandable solution with practically unlimited scale. S2 Global enables users to knit together an entire ecosystem of security management systems (SMS) and video management systems (VMS) appliances under one centrally-controlled distributed network while retaining many of the principles that S2 pioneered, including an appliance-based architecture and web browser delivery.
S2 Global is both network-efficient and cost-effective. The system integrates SMS and VMS appliances directly, eliminating the regional chokepoints that are a significant problem for legacy systems. Using S2 Global, users have the safety and convenience of individually manageable small systems, with the efficiencies offered by central management and control.
S2 Global highlights include:
• SMS access control database that can be managed centrally, remotely or both
• 100% Web-based, IP network appliance
• Automatic import from common personnel management systems
• Scales to thousands of locations on a single Global server
• SOC (Security Operations Center) alarm management software handles multiple simultaneous operators
• Home page provides immediate access to data at any remote site
• Integration with S2 NetVR and NetBox VR for distributed VMS management
• Access privileges specified at both the local and global levels
• Report facility integrates activity from remote devices into aggregated reports that can be auto-scheduled, producing PDF results delivered via email
“S2 Global represents the coming together of 10 years of innovation at S2 Security, and lets users create the most advanced systems we’ve ever released,” said S2 President and CEO John L. Moss. “At S2, our primary goal has always been to give our customers the most flexible, scalable, efficient solutions in the industry. S2 Global gives customers operational efficiencies and management control at any distance, and enables them to completely control their security ecosystem wherever it happens to be.”
With S2 Global, users can build a network of remote security, controlling it at the central site or the remote site – or simultaneously from both. The system expands as the security needs and physical footprint of an organization change, and enables dispersed organizations to build large physical security networks without requiring a large communications infrastructure investment. S2 Global also integrates S2’s innovative video management systems NetVR and NetBox VR, enabling customers to perform real- time surveillance and forensic searches across an entire global system.
S2 Global is flexible enough to meet the needs of a wide range of applications. For large-scale enterprises, S2 can provide a completely customized, enterprise-class Global solution that includes dedicated S2 engineers on-site supporting the deployment. S2 also provides a lower capacity offering for smaller organizations, many of which prefer to build their Global system piece-by-piece over time. S2 Global is compatible with S2 NetBox, S2 NetBox VR, S2 Enterprise and S2 NetVR appliances.
