Secure-M is a robust solution that enables a unified approach to physical security. It offers integration capabilities with devices such as closed circuit television (CCTV), radio-frequency identification (RFID) solutions, access control systems, license plate readers (LPRs), video management systems, perimeter security platforms, fiber optic sensors, video content analysis software, security fences, scanning and tracking systems, public announcement systems, 3D and 2D GIS layouts, fire alarms, motion detectors and intrusion detection systems, among others.
After integrating data from all the disparate systems and sensors into a unified management system, Secure-M provides an in-depth snapshot of the whole system and secured area. From the moment a security breach is identified, the event is managed, and then recorded for future forensic and training/reporting purposes. In addition, the system provides data related to the event analysis and the impact on the surrounding area.
"An open platform design helps reduce the length of training and operational costs while, at the same time, improving security event management and operators’ response time," adds Grossi. "The flexibility offered by Mer’s PSIM solution provides an excellent return on investment (ROI), as customers can re-utilize their legacy systems. Secure-M is also scalable and allows the addition of new features, professional services as well as an increasing number of sites."
Enhanced product scalability and flexibility enable Mer Security to offer solutions for both mid-size enterprises, with a single basic server as well for mega events like the Olympic Games and critical infrastructures sites, which require hierarchical supervision and remote management.
During the 2004 Athens Olympics, as a sub-contractor to Siemens and SAIC, the company implemented the largest PSIM project of that time (long before the term PSIM was even defined). Since, the company has participated in many ‘Safe City’ projects across the globe, even as it has expanded its base of industries served in different continents.
"The most recent interfaces of Secure-M have been related to biometric solutions integrated with RFID-based cards and access control," concludes Grossi. "Latest features, implemented in a sensitive seaport, include 3-D imaging that assists in forecasting the damage caused by an event to a specific location and its surrounding areas and provides a full view of the area secured, thereby assisting in decision making and facilitating response times."
For the New Product Innovation Award, the following criteria were used to benchmark Mer Security’s performance against key competitors: innovative element of the product, leverage leading-edge technologies in product, value added features/benefits, increased customer ROI (small change) and customer acquisition/penetration potential.
