Converged Security Information Management (CSIM) is a category of software that is web based platforms used to implement high-level integration with the goal of automating the management and handling of situations in operations centers. Because the CSIM works – above – all existing and coupled with the increasing standardization of IP platforms systems, the possibilities for communication and collaboration with new subsystems is virtually unlimited.
The CSIM software solution for VidSys continually fuses, correlates instantly and effectively converts large amounts of data into meaningful and actionable information from virtually any type, brand or generation of security systems and sensors – and many other applications network management. Implementations often integrate a number of security cameras, video recorders, access control systems, intrusion detection systems and fire alarm systems (CAD) Computer Aided Dispatch, bollards and other sensors and more exotic applications or specialized. VidSys provides a platform of security operations with a unified view – including 3-D images – powerful tools and automated incident management.
Our automated tools facilitate the safe, efficient and timely resolution of events and alarms and managing complex incidents involving multiple simultaneous alarms in one or more locations. As a secure web-based solution, the platform enables operators to easily manage the assets of a facility, a large campus or several dispersed locations in a city or around the world.
With a true web-based architecture and open source, the VidSys platform is fully enabled for mobile users. This allows real-time collaboration among decision makers of a single organization or multiple entities share actionable information and time-sensitive, with executives and response personnel through mobile devices.
In short, the software platform VidSys includes eight essential characteristics:
Effective use of CSIM software starts with the assessment and identification of risks in their organization and determination of policies and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for its acronym in English; to resolve situations associated with these risks. The VidSys CSIM software connects to various security systems to monitor events, it encapsulates the rules for identifying situations as well as the SOP for use in the operations center. The result is that the CSIM presents operators with actionable, intelligent information, which facilitates the resolution of situations as they develop, as well as compliance monitoring procedures to ensure that best practices are followed to resolution safer, faster and more effective.
With VidSys software platform, the management of simple and complex incidents becomes easier , more reliable based on more profitable and safer pre – approved policies.
Based on predefined business rules , the CSIM software analyzes data from multiple systems and alarms and automatically translate the resulting information in priority situations presented to operators. With this information , operators can quickly determine whether a situation is “real. ” For example, an alarm “door forced open” in conjunction with a motion detector alarm within a building , and occurring within a minute of each other may be the result of a door that was open too long as someone was leaving. Alternatively, these same alarms may indicate an intruder. Once a situation is confirmed, the CSIM software presents instructions step by step resolution , based on standard operating procedures (SOP ), which is automatically updated as the situation evolves – new images are presented, the instructions are modified and new notifications are sent. From sending rescuers and communication with field staff , to lock or unlock doors, VidSys CSIM software handles the situation.
As part of the resolution of the situation, information, such as an image of the intruder can be shared with responders via mobile devices. This way, they improve and expand collaboration with field staff, which facilitates work between operators and responders so that they can work together, coordinated in real time. It also provides an additional layer of protection for the men and women who risk their lives every day, giving them knowledge of the immediate situation as they approach an incident.
