videoNEXT announced Monday that it has received Lenel factory certification for an interface between its Security Knowledge Manager (SKM) software and the OnGuard security platform by Lenel. videoNEXT is a developer of innovative physical security information management (PSIM) solutions, and a member of the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program. The interface it developed enables new or existing Lenel customers to leverage their access control investment into videoNEXT's enterprise-class video solution.

"Lenel is a market leader in access control and represents a significant percentage of the installed global customer base," said Joseph Costa, videoNEXT's CEO. "With the integration of our SKM solution there is now a capable and cost-effective option for enterprise video and access control integration available to a major sector of the market, where prior choices were very limited. Additionally, the Lenel integration takes the level of our information management capabilities one step further giving SKM users even more actionable intelligence in the secure enterprise."

"videoNEXT has completed required factory testing at Lenel to validate the functionality of its interface to OnGuard. We look forward to their continued involvement in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program," said Raffaele Ceravolo, director of strategic alliances for Lenel.
