Converged at IFSEC International 2019

As seen at IFSEC 2018, the Converged Security Centre returns to this year’s show to showcase the latest in integrated security management technology. Conceived and delivered by Vidsys, the Centre is a demonstration area to highlight the advances in Converged Security Information Management (CSIM) and how software, hardware and all forms of information media can be used to gain a complete overview of security.

Each day at IFSEC 2019 from June 18 to 20, the Converged Security Centre will present a range of simulated security scenarios. These will cover transport, utilities, open spaces and infrastructure, and how integrated security systems can be aligned with supplementary information sources such as social media to provide end users with a whole picture.

The Converged Security Centre can show how, with a fully converged security system, users can correlate multiple events into one situation, track major assets, execute building management operations, mitigate cyber threats, monitor social networks and enable high level information security resilience.

The Vidsys CSIM is an integration platform for multiple systems and hardware to work in a fully integrated manner. This year Vidsys will be supported by partners, including Ipsotek and Micro Focus, to show how a range of related technologies can work in tandem. Converged Security and Information Management provides a real time technical solution enhanced by Artificial Intelligence, meaning large volumes of data can be interpreted and processed.

The Converged Security Centre is a feature in IFSEC’s role as a platform to show security technologies and capabilities in real time. It is also a key part of the IFSEC ‘Show Me How’, providing direct access to learning.

James I Chong, CEO, Vidsys says: “We’re thrilled to be part of the Converged Security Centre’s return at IFSEC International 2019 and to be working with our global partners and experts to showcase and share what a truly converged security solution can provide to organisations worldwide. Today, there is a rapidly growing requirement for a converged security solution that monitors both physical and cyber security events under one, unified software platform, especially due to the ever-increasing amount of data created in the world of IoT and Smart Cities.”

Gerry Dunphy, Exhibition Director IFSEC, says: “IFSEC is delighted to welcome Vidsys back to this year’s show as the key partner in The Converged Security Centre. The feature made a major impact at last year’s IFSEC, showcasing how integration and resilience can be achieved through the strategic use of CSIM. IFSEC visiting customers with key roles in safeguarding major assets will directly benefit from seeing the capabilities on display.”

And James Willison, Founder, Unified Security Ltd and Sarb Sembhi, CISO, Virtually Informed, added: “We are delighted to be working with UBM, Visdsys and their partners to bring together physical and information security professionals and converged technologies in one operations centre. The last few years have shown how important it is for physical security vendors to ensure that their products are resilient to cyber physical attacks, and it’s important for them to ensure that their products can integrate with enterprise threat intelligence tools. This theatre showcases some of what is possible with integrated solutions.”
