Qognify Releases Latest VMS Designed to Improve Incident Response
VisionHub 6.0 is said to enhance situational awareness and incident management by combining advanced video surveillance technology with built-in workflow components and other core physical security systems.
PEARL RIVER, N.Y. — Qognify, a technology solution provider for physical security and enterprise incident management, announces the launch of VisionHub 6.0, what the company describes as a VMS+ that enables organizations in critical and highly regulated environments to effectively and efficiently respond to security threats, and mitigate the impact of incidents.
VisionHub is built around the core of a high-performance video management system (VMS). It centralizes, integrates and organizes core physical security systems and sensors into a single video-centric interface, providing control room operators with heightened situational awareness and powerful incident response management capabilities, according to the company.
“In recent years, investment in physical security technology has centered around providing control rooms with more and more sources of data, including greater numbers of cameras, systems and sensors. What has been missing is the integration that enables operators to ingest, interpret and act upon these sources of information, to improve how security incidents are dealt with,” says Steve Shine, CEO of Qognify. “This is exactly where VisionHub comes in. It breaks down the data silos, providing the control room with a centralized management of its core physical security systems based on a powerful VMS+ platform.”
With core security systems tightly integrated through VisionHub, operators have immediate access to the information they need to make the right decisions, and take the right course of action at the right time, all from a single user interface.
Qognify says this is achieved through a combination of pre-defined workflows that guide operators to manage every incident in-line with best practice and regulatory requirements, and a powerful bi-directional integration that enables operators to take action e.g. open or close an access point directly through VisionHub.
“For most organizations video surveillance is at the heart of their physical security ecosystem, so the logical next step in the evolution of the VMS is to be a video-centric management platform, that peels away the layers of complexity for both operator and administrator. VisionHub is a next generation VMS+ that enables control rooms to realize the true potential of their technology investments and the skills of their operators, to deliver optimal performance for the organization, when it matters most,” says Chen Porat, vice president of research and development at Qognify.
VisionHub 6.0 is available now from Qognify and its global channel partner network.
