Genetec Announces Security Center 5.5 as New Version of Unified IP Security Platform

One of the new features of Security Center 5.5 is its disaster recovery mode.

MONTREAL — Genetec recently announced the release of version 5.5 of Security Center, the company’s open architecture, unified IP security platform that combines access control, video surveillance, ALPR and communications.

Security Center 5.5 is said to offer a new disaster recovery mode, enhanced levels of authentication and encryption, augmented video archiving and export management capabilities, and new choices of supported access control hardware.

The new disaster recovery mode allows the configuration of multiple failover directory servers at remote sites. According to Genetec, Security Center 5.5 allows customers to implement more elaborate disaster recovery plans for their security platform, and in the event of a disaster, failover servers at geographically disparate locations can immediately take control and ensure organizations continue to have access to their security platform and protect their people and assets.

Version 5.5 also offers a ‘hardened’ protocol that protects against potential hacking and non-authorized internet access, the company says. When users request to access video feeds, new authentication and authorization steps are in place to protect video data and privacy.
