Hikvision Launches Optimus Software To Offer Seamless Integration With HikCentral Platform

Hikvision, an IoT solution provider with video as its core competency, announces the launch of Hikvision Optimus – a system-level middleware product, for integration of events, alarms and data synchronization between HikCentral and other systems like access control, building management systems, and IoT devices. For example, integrating HikCentral with access control systems via Optimus software helps customers operate more efficiently. This integration enables users to quickly and easily receive door alarms, grant or deny access, and synchronize user credentials in both systems. Continuous integrated operations Optimus middleware features connectors that bridge third party systems with HikCentral, regardless of their coding standards. This ensures a long-term, uninterrupted, continuous integrated operations. Optimus offers a wide range of advantages: The majority of use cases can be completed using only one connector as Optimus integrates multiple products and systems. The easy-to-use graphical interface enables integrators with no programming skills to build custom ‘if-this-then-that’ scenarios to match exact customer needs. Third parties can develop their own connectors with Optimus based on their own API/SDK and thus achieve rapid integration times. A built-in health monitoring function provides the operator with a real-time insight into the integration status. Truly scalable approach The Optimus product comes with a flexible and distribution-friendly licensing structure for the connectors. This structure allows connector developers to stay in control of usage, yet determine pricing at their own discretion. “We are very excited to launch an offering that represents a completely new and truly scalable approach to integration with HikCentral. Optimus will enable Hikvision installers and technology partners to easily integrate their systems with HikCentral,” says James Iacuessa, Senior Product Manager from Hikvision. Based on its third-party software development kit (SDK), Hikvision has created a number of connectors with Optimus software: Paxton NET2 AMAG Symmetry

AMAG Technology Launches Symmetry Business Intelligence To Provide Critical Information Through Data Analysis
AMAG Technology Launches Symmetry Business Intelligence To Provide Critical Information Through Data Analysis

AMAG Technology, a G4S company, expands its security offering with Symmetry Business Intelligence, a robust analytics engine designed to provide critical information via data analysis. Organizations can use the data from their access control system to determine if an employee or contractor is displaying abnormal behavior. AMAG Technology is a pioneer in unified security solutions that helps organizations mitigate risk, ensure compliance, and lower the overall cost of a security program. Risk score methodology Symmetry Business Intelligence analyzes how a person’s access activity is tracked and patterns established based on a risk score methodology. Anomalous behavior may raise a person’s score, and high-risk identities are flagged in a dashboard. Scores are generated based on the reader location, time of day and a user’s access patterns Dashboards within Symmetry Business Intelligence provide the security team with an at-a-glance look at identities with the highest risk scores. Scores are generated based on the reader location, time of day and a user’s access patterns. Symmetry Business Intelligence helps to easily identify the employees, contractors and other identities that may pose the highest risk to a company. Cloud-Based security systems “Symmetry Business Intelligence highlights anomalous behavior, helping organizations discover unauthorized access patterns and possible threats worthy of further investigation,” said AMAG Technology, President, Howard Johnson. “It’s a natural extension of any security program.” Keeping in line with AMAG’s commitment to providing open solutions, Symmetry Business Intelligence has been designed from the ground up to easily integrate with other systems. Over the past five years, AMAG has released Symmetry CONNECT identity management, Symmetry GUEST visitor management and Symmetry incident management, all open, cloud-based security systems designed to provide more flexibility and options for the end-user.
