Integrated Security for Critical Infrastructure Protection
Critical infrastructure organisations such as water, power and telecommunications utilities face ever increasing physical security threats from terrorism, vandalism, theft and the general safety of the public. They have long been viewed as “soft targets.” Even minor incursions into utilities security can cause major disruptions. PACOM’s platform offers security managers integration of multiple security products into a comprehensive, real-time monitoring and response capability. PACOM also offers complete investigative tools to track authorized and unauthorised activity on-site.
POWERFUL SOFTWARE AT THE HEART OF THE SYSTEM
PACOM’s powerful GMS (Graphical Management System) software allows customers within government sectors a remote, real-time, at-a-glance control of all installations and corporate offices. A single keystroke can change PIN codes and users, print access cards, centrally configure individual alarm panels and remotely broadcast upgrades and changes eliminating the need for site visits. Users can also: verify alarm events immediately with integrated digital video capabilities search and report easily on one specific site or event or generate customised reports from thousands of sites – and do all of this from anywhere on the network. GMS is entirely flexible to the needs of each client situation and for each individual site easily accommodating past investments into hardware and components. Best of all GMS eliminates significant costs meaning that customers can expect a return on investment (ROI) within two years. PACOM achieves this by using the customer’s internal IP network with no requirement for dedicated telephone lines. Remote management greatly reduces the need for site visits and allows the customer to manage the system internally, removing the operational cost of external management contracts.
