Genetec Announces New Version of Security Center

24 Apr 2018

Security Center 5.7 adds new cybersecurity, privacy, access control, and smart-data analytics features

MONTREAL, November 21, 2017 - Genetec Inc. (“Genetec"), a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, today announced a new version of Security Center, an open-architecture platform that unifies video surveillance, access control, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), communications, and analytics. Security Center 5.7 allows users to make insight-driven decisions based on security and analytics data. This latest version also adds privacy protection for individuals, efficiently distributes HID mobile access control credentials, and ensures business continuity with native access control failover. Security Center 5.7 is available now through the global network of Genetec certified channel partners.

Protecting data, the network, and the organizationCyber resilience is about securing communications, authenticating users, and protecting businesses from employees unwittingly allowing vulnerable network-connected devices to threaten the business. To improve overall cybersecurity, Security Center now automatically identifies whether connected edge devices are running the most recent and secure device firmware. Once notified of known vulnerabilities and given firmware recommendations, administrators can take immediate action and eliminate known security gaps.

'GDPR-ready' Privacy and Video AnalyticsMore than a trend, protecting individual privacy is fast-becoming a necessity of security management. In some regions like Europe, it is already becoming codified in law. By embedding the KiwiVision™ Privacy Protector™ module, Genetec enables organizations to automatically blur and mask sensitive video, and anonymize people to protect their privacy. Privacy Protector was recently re-certified for its fourth consecutive term with the European Privacy Seal (EuroPriSe), and remains the only video solution to hold this certification. Privacy Protector is also rated as 'GDPR-ready', meeting the stringent compliance criteria of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will go into effect May 25th, 2018 in the European Union.  

The KiwiVision Intrusion DetectorTM module is also unified with Security Center 5.7 to generate real-time alarms that automatically notify security staff when individuals or vehicles enter sensitive areas, secured perimeters, or restricted zones. Through an accompanying analytics-based intrusion report, operators can now engage in deeper investigations. Additionally, to assist users in scanning through hours of footage, a new Quick Search forensics tool identifies changes in recorded scenes in seconds, ignoring irrelevant footage to narrow down searches.  

Enterprise access control with native failover and HID mobile credential supportThe Security Center Synergis™ access control system now comes with built-in failover, so customers can take advantage of continuous monitoring of devices and events. This safeguards critical information and ensures business continuity, even when servers fail. The new HID Mobile Access Portal API integration allows organizations to efficiently deploy mobile credentials to their employees, contractors, and visitors. These credential holders receive an email to download the HID Mobile Access Portal application on their devices, which enables access via Bluetooth® or NFC wireless technology. Employees and visitors will now be able to use their smartphone, wearables, and tablets to gain approved access credentials to securely open doors and defined areas of the premises.  

Insight-driven reporting and decision supportThe new advanced Security Center reporting feature intuitively displays data in dynamic charts and graphs, helping organizations gain a deeper understanding of their data, identify trends, and spot undetected patterns. Visualization of physical security data can be employed to quickly isolate security gaps and suspicious activity, identify maintenance issues, find valuable opportunities to improve operations, and ultimately make smarter decisions.  

New Security Center mobile and web applicationsTo meet the demands of an increasingly mobile workforce, organizations need to equip their internal security organization and other staff members with solutions that enable them to address both day-to-day and emergency situations from any location. The Security Center Web Client allows customers to manage real-time alarms and threat levels, both of which are critical time-sensitive activities. With web-based threat management, users can address any situation in progress, instantly activating a threat level to modify the behavior of their security platform in response. From locking down a facility, to restricting access, or triggering emergency video recording, Genetec web-based threat management removes the limitations of location. Managing threat levels on the move is also available through a new, dedicated threat level mobile application.
