VidSys, Inc. Key Developments

HP Autonomy and VidSys Announce Strategic Alliance to Develop Enhanced Physical Security Information Management

HP Autonomy and VidSys have announced a strategic alliance to develop an enhanced physical security information management, or PSIM, platform powered by next generation video surveillance analytics. The solution will improve the effectiveness of security professionals by augmenting VidSys' industry leading PSIM offering with analytics delivered by HP IDOL's advanced information analytics platform. The combined platform is designed to reduce physical security risks and incidents by delivering actionable intelligence from a diverse set of human information, including free text, image, audio and real-time video sources. Social and broadcast media play an increasingly significant role in helping anticipate and mitigate potential security incidents around the world. The nature and profile of threats are constantly changing and this new generation of adversary often leaves a different digital footprint, creating potential gaps in traditional threat detection approaches. To combat this new generation of threats and stop them before they do harm, forward-thinking organizations must process, understand, and act on a vast array of information, including social media chatter, video surveillance footage, email, case files, criminal records, and physical location data to identify potential threats and take actions to neutralize the danger. HP Autonomy and VidSys intend to collaborate to develop a solution that will address these challenges by bringing together the industry leading information platform for understanding all forms of human information, HP IDOL, with the world's leading physical security information management software solution from VidSys. The joint solution powered by VidSys and HP Autonomy technology will increase the effectiveness and accuracy of decision making for security operators by integrating a broad range of physical and IT real-time data sources to provide a holistic awareness of the situation at hand. HP Autonomy's data management, innovative analytics and advanced video analytics capabilities, together with the physical security integration capabilities of VidSys, will provide actionable intelligence to customers requiring real-time situation management.
