Proximex and NEC Deliver Integrated, Real Time and Reliable Physical Security Solutions
SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Proximex, developers of award-winning solutions for the physical security information management (PSIM) market, and NEC Corporation of America, a premier provider of IT, network and identity management solutions, announced today that the two companies have joined forces to offer integrated physical security solutions with high availability for organizations that require “real time, all the time” systems. Proximex Surveillint™, combined with the NEC® Express5800™/320Fc fault tolerant server or ExpressCluster® product family, protects organizations with the ability to discover, connect and resolve seemingly unrelated events as well as handle constant data transactions in the busiest surveillance environments.
“NEC provides a solid foundation for physical security information management applications like Proximex Surveillint,” said Jack Smith, chief executive officer at Proximex. “Proximex and NEC products together deliver the ideal solution for large enterprises and other markets, like national security and the public sector, that require 24/7 reliability for heavy-bandwidth and critical security infrastructures. The full availability and data protection provided by NEC fault tolerant servers and ExpressCluster software ensures that the security systems of Surveillint customers are up and running at peak efficiency all the time.”
Proximex Surveillint is a premier physical security solution for policy-based incident discovery, connection and resolution. Powered by sophisticated rules and workflow engines, Surveillint takes advantage of existing security systems to speed incident response times, improve suspect apprehension rates and shorten the time required to resolve incidents and generate reports. In just one solution, Proximex allows different security professionals, regardless of their level within the organization, to communicate with one another as well as view and act upon the information required for their duties.
“Building security today requires sophisticated solutions that support the convergence of physical and network security,” said Dave Davenport, senior vice president, IT Platform Group, NEC Corporation of America. “Proximex’s powerful information management software speeds discovery, connection and resolution of crime incidents. NEC Express5800 fault tolerant servers and ExpressCluster software serve as the foundation to reliably process the tremendous amount of data streaming from access control, video surveillance, biometrics, and other information Proximex Surveillint manages.”
NEC offers a portfolio of hardware and software products for high availability and disaster recovery solutions. NEC’s fault tolerant servers offer sub-second recovery with no memory state loss from hardware failures through its unique lockstep processing technology. NEC ExpressCluster software provides integrated application and data protection and recovery on industry standard x86 servers to enable lower cost system recovery within minutes of hardware, software, and site failures in LAN, SAN, and WAN environments. Proximex customers can confidently select the NEC FT server, ExpressCluster, or both products to deploy the optimal solution to meet the specific high availability or disaster recovery requirements for their Proximex access control systems.
“We’re extremely pleased that NEC has taken a leadership role in our best-of-breed technologies partner program,” said Jim Barth, vice president of business development for Proximex. “We take pride in offering our customers a tested solution of technologies that integrate together to provide the best physical security systems available.”
NEC’s award-winning ExpressCluster is a family of integrated high availability and disaster recovery software providing fast recovery and continuous protection of business critical applications and data. ExpressCluster enables easy to deploy and cost-effective continuity solutions for industry standard database, email, and virtualization applications and platforms including Microsoft® SQL, Oracle® DB, IBM DB2®, MySQL®, Microsoft Exchange, Sendmail®, VMware®, Microsoft Virtual Server, Microsoft Windows® and Linux®.
As the engine of a security system, NEC’s fault tolerant (FT) servers are built from the ground up to perform with an availability level that is transparent to the user, involves no interruption of work, no transactions lost, and no degradation in performance. The system provides 100 percent component and functional redundancy or up to 99.999 percent availability. Fault tolerant servers from NEC use hardware linkage to establish the highest level of fault tolerance with much less cost and greater operational ease.
