New version of Security Center

CCTV Handbook 2018 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

Genetec has announced a new version of Security Center, an open-architecture platform that unifies video surveillance, access control, automatic licence plate recognition (LPR), communications, and analytics. Security Center 5.7 allows users to make insight-driven decisions based on security and analytics data. This version also adds privacy protection, distributes HID mobile access control credentials, and ensures business continuity with native access control failover.

Cyber resilience is about securing communications, authenticating users and protecting businesses from employees unwittingly allowing vulnerable network-connected devices to threaten the business. To improve overall cybersecurity, Security Center now automatically identifies whether connected edge devices are running the most recent and secure device firmware. Once notified of known vulnerabilities and given firmware recommendations, administrators can take immediate action.

More than a trend, protecting individual privacy is fast becoming a necessity of security management. In some regions like Europe, it is already becoming codified in law. By embedding the KiwiVision Privacy Protector module, Genetec enables organisations to automatically blur and mask sensitive video, and anonymise people to protect their privacy. Privacy Protector was recently re-certified for its fourth consecutive term with the European Privacy Seal (EuroPriSe), and remains the only video solution to hold this certification. Privacy Protector is also rated as ‘GDPR-ready’, meeting the stringent compliance criteria of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will go into effect May 25, 2018 in the European Union.

The KiwiVision Intrusion Detector module is also unified with Security Center 5.7 to generate real-time alarms that automatically notify security staff when individuals or vehicles enter sensitive areas, secured perimeters, or restricted zones.

The Security Center Synergis access control system now comes with built-in failover, so customers can take advantage of continuous monitoring of devices and events. This safeguards critical information and ensures business continuity, even when servers fail. The new HID Mobile Access Portal API integration allows organisations to efficiently deploy mobile credentials to their employees, contractors, and visitors. These credential holders receive an email to download the HID Mobile Access Portal application on their devices, which enables access via Bluetooth or NFC wireless technology. Employees and visitors will now be able to use their smartphone, wearables, and tablets to gain approved access credentials to securely open doors and defined areas of the premises.

The new advanced reporting feature intuitively displays data in dynamic charts and graphs, helping organisations gain a deeper understanding of their data, identify trends, and spot undetected patterns. Visualisation of physical security data can be employed to quickly isolate security gaps and suspicious activity, identify maintenance issues, find valuable opportunities to improve operations, and ultimately make smarter decisions.

The Security Center Web Client allows customers to manage real-time alarms and threat levels, both of which are critical time-sensitive activities. With web-based threat management, users can address any situation in progress, instantly activating a threat level to modify the behaviour of their security platform in response.
