Diebold Advances SecureStat With Business Data Analytics, Workflow Management

Enhancements to the security management portal enable data analysis and advanced workflow management in a single Web-based dashboard for commercial and financial end users.

ATLANTA – When Diebold officially lifted the curtain on SecureStat during ISC West last year, the company said enhancements to the innovative security management portal were already in the pipeline.

Jump ahead to ASIS 2014 and those forthcoming platform improvements were now ready for primetime. Company executives explained how the addition of security data analytics and advanced workflow management features have expanded the capabilities of SecureStat to provide in-depth analyses that enhance security operations and promote enterprise-wide efficiencies.

Some quick background on SecureStat: this centralized security management system provides an online security portal and customizable dashboard for regional, national and global multisite commercial and financial customers to manage their entire security operations. As a pure-play systems integrator without its own security product offering, SecureStat is advancing Diebold’s objective to drive the best solution for the customer, Tony Byerly, Diebold’s executive vice president, electronic security, explained to me.

Because SecureStat is product agnostic, it can work with disparate systems from any manufacturer and thereby help end users select systems that best fit their needs. A big plus for SecureStat’s open architecture is providing customers the capability to leverage existing infrastructure, especially for those businesses that oftentimes have an installed base of disparate systems.

The addition of the new business data analytics engine will enable companies to more effectively analyze and investigate security- and business-related activities, including data related to alarms, monitoring, services, installations and asset management. And the new workflow management system
streamlines security and business processes related to monitoring schedule changes, access permissions, personal identification number (PIN) changes and more, from a single dashboard. 

With business data from multiple systems integrated into the platform, organizations can get closer to predictive models for the maintenance, service and replacement of security devices, Byerly explains.

“SecureStat’s business analytics capabilities leverage the Internet-of-Things-connectedness of today’s security technologies,” he says. “The new SecureStat functionalities streamline this data aggregation and analysis to more rapidly improve our customers’ businesses.”
