G4S Technology, a provider of fully integrated building security solutions, formed an integration partnership with CNL, a supplier for physical security information management (PSIM) software.
At the heart of the G4S Technology solution is the Security Management System (SMS). SMS offers users the next generation of security solutions, bringing the core aspects of building security to intelligent, unified solutions. The partnership will ensure bidirectional integration between CNL's situation management software and SMS.
The CNL integration with G4S Technology will allow customers complete situational management capabilities, process guidance, auditable compliance and the ability to work with technologies such as GIS mapping, GPS tracking, PIDS and analytics, all managed seamlessly.
"This partnership is in-line with our view of providing technology solutions to manage entire physical security operations through a single interface. Extending our ability to work with other technology partners allows us to provide best of breed solutions, ensuring the security and safety of people, property and assets," said Dave Ella, CTO, G4S Technology.
"CNL has long demonstrated its commitment to work with suppliers in the global security industry. With more than 30,000 systems deployed in 70 countries G4S Technology has shown it has a compelling suite of products," said Matthew Kushner, President, CNL Americas. "Physical security operations have three core elements, people, systems and processes. If we look at a vast majority of security operations around the globe these elements are working in isolation. By allowing these systems to work in a cohesive and intelligent way, we can significantly harden security, reduce costs and reduce risks."
