IFSEC to feature Converged Security Centre
First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Security trade show IFSEC International 2018 is to include a dedicated learning and demonstration zone which promises “a real-time immersive experience of integrated physical and cyber security” for the first time. The Converged Security Centre is hosted by Vidsys, whose converged security and information management (CSIM) architecture will feature prominently. “We believe there is an immediate need for a converged security solution that unifies monitoring of both physical and cyber security under one, unified platform,” says Vidsys CEO James I. Chong. “By leveraging disparate sources of data, organisations can effectively manage a situation in real time without having to go to multiple subsystems, including analytics and cybersecurity, to get the job done. Visitors will be shown how “users can correlate multiple events into one situation, track major assets, execute efficient building management operations, monitor social networks, and most importantly enable high level information security resilience for true situation management”, the organiser says. Products from Axis Communications (IP networked surveillance), Unisys (cyber and information security) and Micro Focus International (AI-powered analytics platform for video, image, text and audio data) will also be on display. IFSEC takes place at London’s ExCeL from 19-21 June.
