Think differently

Security Center allows True unification

Integration is not unification

Integration is a common goal for security and IT teams with organizations looking for efficiencies by linking video with access control and ALPR. While integration can increase situational awareness, it does not lead to significant productivity gains. With integration, organizations are still deploying distinct security solutions from multiple vendors, purchasing multiple servers, attending multiple vendor-specific training, and maintaining several systems. A better approach exists. True unification allows you to deploy a single platform that embeds multiple security systems, minimizes IT infrastructure expenditures, and reduces your total cost of ownership.

With Security Center stay away from the pitfalls

Growing operator overload

When working with two, three, or more security applications from multiple vendors, user effectiveness quickly becomes constrained. At the extreme, it means dealing with over half a dozen monitoring and management applications; operators and administrators are easily overwhelmed by the sheer number of user applications and by the amount of knowledge they need to acquire to perform their work. When you add maintenance of all those applications and upgrades over time to the equation, it is easy to see how your security and IT teams can become overloaded. Unified security platforms, with embedded security applications, sidestep these pitfalls altogether.

With Security Center take control of security costs

Ever-increasing security costs

Over time, the costs associated with maintaining several systems, purchasing multiple maintenance agreements for each vendor, keeping security and IT teams trained and up to date, and ensuring compatibility between several systems through upgrades accrue without warning. Although minimal at first, these expenses accumulate over time and quickly overtake the initial cost to purchase your security systems altogether. And more often than not, these costs are unplanned in nature. With a unified platform, your organization can take control of these lifetime expenditures and avoid many others altogether.
