NICE Situator and NiceVision help critical facility in Poland enhance situational awareness and improve incident management

NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that Naftoport Ltd, the major oil transshipment port in Poland, is successfully using NICE Situator and NiceVision intrusion detection video analytics to protect its critical resources. The project integrates nine existing gateway security systems to enhance situational awareness for improved incident management and operational efficiency.

NICE’s advanced situation management solution, NICE Situator offers a single, centralized interface and automated, adaptive workflows that are helping port authorities respond more quickly and more efficiently to unfolding incidents. Working together with ISM EuroCenter S.A., NICE has fully integrated NiceVision intrusion detection analytics, surveillance cameras, radar, intruder and hold up alarms, passive infrared, ACS, GPS and automatic identification systems with NICE Situator. Even sonar is being fed into Situator to detect intrusions from underwater.

The NICE solutions are also being used by Naftoport to optimize its day-to-day security operations in order to minimize down times and ensure operations continuity. Roughly forty procedures are being automated with Situator to proactively prevent any disruptions.

Naftoport Ltd performs transhipments of crude oil and refined oil products in the Port of Gdańsk. The company is a critical part of the petroleum supply chain for Polish and German refineries and crude oil transit from Russia and Kazakhstan to the ports of Western Europe, the United States and the Far East. Naftoport has a capacity of 40 million tons annually across its four jetties.

Cezary Jóźwiak, Head of Security at Naftoport, says, “Integrating our disparate security systems within NICE Situator has made our security team more efficient, effective, and agile by automating response processes and administration. It gives them a single operating platform through which they can proactively monitor, manage, and maintain the safety and security of the port, reducing risks and improving incident management.”

“This implementation reinforces NICE’s expertise in protecting major seaports worldwide, which is a critical element in border security,” says Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE Security Group. “Working with Naftoport we have maximized the potential of its existing infrastructure investments, as well as provided a platform for the addition of new and upgraded systems in the future.”
