January 2017 by Marc Jacob
CNL Software, a world leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, is pleased to announce that its award-winning technology will be utilized as part of the multi-agency security program at the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. The company’s IPSecurityCenter PSIM solution is deployed in Washington, DC to help secure the city, keep its transportation facilities and networks operational and the people that rely on them safe, as well as to make sense of the huge volume of data and video intelligence generated during inaugural activities. IPSecurityCenter will be used to help ensure inaugural events run smoothly.
Event security agencies are responsible for the safety of the public, security and law enforcement and counterterrorism activities during what may be the most dynamic threat environment in history of the U.S.
“The swearing-in of a new President is a momentous occasion in our nation’s capital, and we will see huge numbers of people coming from across and beyond the U.S. to witness the Inauguration. As with all major events, security is a huge concern” comments Mike Mostow, General Manager at CNL Software Americas. “IPSecurityCenter is deployed in Washington, DC, providing real-time situational awareness and decision support to security and law enforcement personnel during large scale special security events like the Inauguration. One of IPSecurityCenter’s key capabilities is allowing multi-level collaboration between and across the various safety, security, law enforcement and emergency management agencies working to protect the President and others attending inaugural activities, its spectators, and the wider public.”
“Aside from the threat of a major incident, there are more frequent public safety and security incidents to consider. From monitoring crowds and the accurate and early detection of incidents, to enabling rapid post event forensics, IPSecurityCenter offers comprehensive situational awareness and intelligence to bolster security. Having more digital eyes on the ground becomes a force multiplier to help identify and resolve security incidents faster and more incisively.”
IPSecurityCenter PSIM is deployed in some of the largest public security programs today in global cities supporting the safety and security of citizens, visitors, commerce and infrastructure. IPSecurityCenter PSIM allows the intelligent integration of the widest range of security and homeland defense technologies such as video surveillance and analytics, facial recognition, license plate recognition, crowd monitoring, gunshot detection, chemical, biological, radiological/nuclear and explosives detection, geospatial mapping and asset tracking.
