Control Center

CNL, (Computer Network Limited) developer of Integrated Situation Management software, has been selected by IBM Global Technology Services to provide the platform for their latest physical security solution, the IBM Physical Security Services – command and control center solution (CCC).

The CCC solution is a result of their collaboration with IBM.

IBM Physical Security Services – CCC solution is designed to let organisations control, monitor and maintain disparate security systems and assets through a single interface. Virtually any device can be controlled by CCC via built-in workflow designers including CCTV, intruder alarms, fire alarms, access control, personal alarms, building management systems, digital recording and business systems.

CCC creates a management layer that sits above these security applications, providing customisable presentation of surveillance, alarm and event management. It escalates incidents to the point of need, increasing situational awareness, allowing greater collaboration both within organizations and with ERTs and reducing the overall cost of security operations.

Key the firms add to CCC is compliance to security policies and enforced procedures based on defined response plans. The system also provides detailed recording and reporting functionality, which helps minimise risk and exposure.

Keith Bloodworth, CEO of CNL says: “IBM brings with them their extensive IT and business process experience, which when applied to physical security creates some very effective solutions. This is the catalyst the industry needs to start adopting some of integrated solutions we have all been so excited about.” CNL and IBM were demonstrating this security management software on the IBM booth (411) at ASIS 2008 in Altanta.
