Proximex Surveillint, combined with the NEC® Express5800/320Fc fault tolerant server or ExpressCluster® product family, protects organizations with the ability to discover, connect and resolve seemingly unrelated events as well as handle constant data transactions in the busiest surveillance environments.
NEC provides a solid foundation for physical security information management applications like Proximex Surveillint, said Jack Smith, chief executive officer at Proximex. Proximex and NEC products together deliver the ideal solution for large enterprises and other markets, like national security and the public sector, that require 24/7 reliability for heavy-bandwidth and critical security infrastructures. The full availability and data protection provided by NEC fault tolerant servers and ExpressCluster software ensures that the security systems of Surveillint customers are up and running at peak efficiency all the time.
Proximex Surveillint is a premier physical security solution for policy-based incident discovery, connection and resolution. Powered by sophisticated rules and workflow engines, Surveillint takes advantage of existing security systems to speed incident response times, improve suspect apprehension rates and shorten the time required to resolve incidents and generate reports. In just one solution, Proximex allows different security professionals, regardless of their level within the organization, to communicate with one another as well as view and act upon the information required for their duties.
Building security today requires sophisticated solutions that support the convergence of physical and network security, said Dave Davenport, senior vice president, IT Platform Group, NEC Corporation of America.
