March Networks Teams with Software House to Deliver Integrated Video Surveillance and Access Control Management

OTTAWA, Jan. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - March Networks® (TSX: MN), a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, today announced the integration of its award-winning Command video management platform with the Software House C•CURE 9000 Security and Event Management System. The integration provides customers worldwide with a single, centralized solution that enables faster incident response, improved risk management and more efficient security operations through the seamless interoperability of video surveillance and access control. "We're proud to team with Software House to address growing demand from our mutual customers for the integration of these two essential security systems," said Dan Cremins, Director of Product Management, March Networks. "The result is an enterprise-class solution that supports the remote monitoring of a few or thousands of locations efficiently and cost-effectively."

The certified integration is bi-directional, allowing both alarms and events from a Software House C•CURE 9000 system to be seen by - and sent from - the March Networks Command video management platform. An access control badge used after-hours, for example, can trigger live video pop-ups in the C•CURE 9000 interface to support real-time visual verification. Or an access control alarm, such as a forced door entry, can initiate actions in Command, including real-time video monitoring and automatic video recording of the incident. All C•CURE 9000 events appear within the system alarm logs and can be used to quickly locate and play back recorded video.

"We are pleased to be working with March Networks as part of the Software House Connected Partner Program," said Jeremy Krinitt, Senior Product Manager for Strategic Integrations at Tyco.  "The interoperability of our C•CURE 9000 solution and the Command video management platform makes it easier for customers to keep their operations safe and secure, and we look forward to future collaboration."

March Networks' comprehensive Command platform provides the centralized management and integrated access to information that organizations need to succeed in today's highly competitive environment. The software allows customers to efficiently install, deploy and manage their surveillance infrastructure from any location, and scales to support as many as 128,000 cameras. It delivers key capabilities such as mass configuration and management that lower installation and maintenance costs significantly.

Software House's C•CURE 9000 security and event management system utilizes IT- standard tools and innovative distributed architecture. It offers advanced integration capabilities, advanced alarm routing and remote access for system administration and monitoring via a light client. Leveraging Microsoft's® sophisticated .NET® 4. technology, C•CURE 9000 provides native encryption and XML data transfer, making it one of the fastest, most secure systems in the industry.
