Galvanising physical security with IT

Friday, 21 November 2003, 2:23 PM EST

Cingulum Security Services has teamed with Internet Solutions (IS) to take on-site CCTV recording and physical guarding into the realm of "more secure" IT. The solution streams compressed video recordings to a live, remote operations centre.

Cingulum CEO Dave Albert says the offering removes the risk of loss of the recordings via theft of the cameras and recording devices, by recording two copies of the streamed material off-site to a fully power-, communications- and storage-redundant operations room on IS's premises.

"The private security industry has tended to install physical security barriers in the form of gated communities and office parks, and in some cases a growing trend for on-site CCTV camera monitoring. But current laws seem to dictate against [physical barriers]. In keeping with the international mass move towards CCTV, and making use of other technology not yet widely used in physical security, Cingulum and IS have bridged the gap between these two worlds and in the process solved some of the latter's problems."
