Allied Universal to Offer Hosted Situational Awareness Platform by SureView Systems
The platform will allow Allied Universal to offer Immix Command Center as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model via its security operations center (SOC) to private command center customers.
Immix Guard Force is a hosted-service version of Immix Command Center, a situational awareness software platform used by businesses, institutions and agencies to monitor security systems and protect critical assets.
The platform will allow Allied Universal to offer Immix Command Center as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model via its security operations center (SOC) to private command center customers. The software is said to enable the company to seamlessly provide advanced, value-add managed video and situational awareness services to any customer, regardless of location.
Immix Guard Force is primarily used by physical guard providers, like Allied Universal, looking to augment and enhance service offerings through technology that allows them to rapidly grow their businesses through back-end managed services and the outsourcing of traditional command center operations without incurring heavy additional costs.
In 2015, Allied Universal’s SOC became the first private SureView Systems Certified Center, a designation that recognizes the company as a best-in-class partner for using Immix Central Station software.
“We have been a user of SureView’s Immix CS software for some time but needed a solution that would allow us to have greater capability and flexibility,” says Sherman Brawner, senior director of integrated security solutions for Allied Universal.
Brawner continues, “The Immix Guard Force product not only expands our ability to be able to offer more than just a video monitoring and alarm verification solution, but it also provides a full suite of tools and services that can perform threat assessment, situational awareness, managed access control and visitor management services for a wide range of customers — particularly in the higher education, healthcare, petrochemical and commercial facility management segments.”
The guarding firm has thousands of customers, Brawner says, very few of which operate their own SOC. Therefore, Immix Guard Force is considered a logical fit to help provide customers with this capability without incurring huge up-front costs.
SureView Systems will be demonstrating its entire Immix platform, including Guard Force, at ISC West in Las Vegas (April 11-13) in booth # 22053.
