TYCO SECURITY PRODUCTS ACQUIRES INNOMETRIKS

InnometriksTyco Security Products announced as of 13 May 2016, it has acquired substantially all of the assets of Innometriksand 2DogsStudios, developers of high assurance readers, software and mobile solutions for FIPS-201 (Federal Information Processing Standard) smart card credentials.

This acquisition strengthens Tyco Security Products’ position in the federal market by adding the Innometriks team’s open, seamless high-assurance solution integrated directly into Tyco Security Products’ Software House C•CURE 9000 access control and security management ecosystem, as well as enabling the ability to integrate with systems from other manufacturers. This is achieved with an open architecture that moves government credential authentication directly into the physical access panel, and leveraging OSDP (Open Supervised Device Protocol) capable readers. These combined technologies will become part of Tyco Security Products’ access control solution portfolio.

The combination of Tyco Security Products and Innometriks creates an offering that provides a fast, open, modular, and cost effective solution for high assurance needs.   The benefits of this acquisition not only extend to the government market, but also to commercial customers who require high assurance access control systems.  We are very excited to have the Innometriks and 2DogStudios become a part of our access control solutions and future roadmaps.

Airport security soars on strength of integrated platform

Ever expanding and seemingly always in flux, airports present great opportunities but also major challenges for security integrators and security technology providers.

Airport Security Today

Today’s modern airports are security-centric enterprises that have multi-faceted surveillance and access control systems. Although airport security was heightened after the terrorist attacks in the United States on 9/11, anytime these facilities undergo some degree of modernization or add to their footprint, they are presented with the prospect of taking security to the next level.

However, any changes to an airport security system must take into account the substantial technological investment that has already been made as well as the importance of keeping the systems manageable on 24/7 basis.

About Izmir Airport

At Turkey’s Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport, this blending of old and new occurred as the airport constructed a new domestic terminal with a security system that needed to mesh with the one in the existing terminal installed more than 10 years earlier.

While the airport’s operator TAV-Ege was eager to introduce IP-based products into the new terminal, it also wanted to leverage its existing and still highly functional components from the old terminal such as analog cameras.

Izmir Airport

Solution

To meet the airport’s needs, together with the help of integrator Sensormatic Guvenlik Hizmetleri, Tyco Security Products presented airport officials with an integrated solution that could accommodate the 700 analog cameras from the old terminal, while also handling the 600 new IP cameras from the newly constructed building.

The installation of modern VideoEdge network video recorders (NVR) from American Dynamics and backbone systems like the victor unified security solution and Software House’s C-CURE 9000 security and event management platform ensured that the airport would manage both old and new cameras and access systems seamlessly from a single platform.

Izmir Security Center

The new unified platform also brought a fuller feature set to the airport, offering video analytics within the NVRs so security staff could:

  • Recognize and address threats more easily
  • Save time with real-time alerts of objects abandoned
  • Intelligent, powerful analytics automate security operations
  • Greatly reduce time searching for incident evidence
  • Presents better control of restricted areas through the C-CURE access control system
  •  Brings together CCTV and access so system operators can now view video along with any alarms that occurs

Even as the capabilities of the system have increased, however, the ability to manage it remains intuitive and straightforward, which is critical in a potentially high-risk environment like a major airport.

Izmir Security camera

As Turkey’s fourth busiest airport, Tyco Security Products complete solution has poised Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport for growth and scalability to allow for future system upgrades and even camera additions if warranted.

And as more airports undergo this type of expansion, the demand for integrated solutions that bring old and new systems together should only increase.
