VIENNA, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/11/13 -- VidSys, a leading provider of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, today announced that Government Security News (GSN) named the company the platinum winner in the Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) category in its annual Border Security Awards program. The awards will be formally announced and presented at the Border Security Expo, taking place March 12-13, 2013 in Phoenix, Ariz.
"We received an impressive collection of entries from large and small companies involved in border security," Jacob Goodwin, editor-in-chief of GSN, said. "We're now pleased to unveil our list of honored companies and government agencies."
The VidSys PSIM software is optimized to identify, manage and resolve some of the most significant borders security-related challenges. It continuously fuses, instantly correlates and effectively presents vast amounts of data gathered from virtually any type, brand or generation of physical security system or sensor -- and from network management applications critical to border security operations. The VidSys PSIM platform provides the automated tools needed for safe, effective and timely resolution of basic alarms and for management of more complex incidents that involve multiple simultaneous alarms at one or more border locations. As a secure web-based solution, the VidSys PSIM platform allows operators to manage geographically dispersed assets easily. This enables command center and border patrol agents as well as any other situation-critical agencies and organizations to synchronize information and response as events occur -- enabling safe, effective, and timely situation resolution.
"Our PSIM software empowers border security professionals to identify potential threats before they occur, swiftly mitigating risk when a would-be threat emerges and easily gaining and sharing critical real-time information for safer, faster and more-efficient responses," said Michael P. Jackson, CEO of VidSys. "As a result, the VidSys PSIM software increasingly is being used as a strategic tool by organizations and agencies tasked with protecting critical assets. We are honored to have the VidSys PSIM software recognized by GSN in its prestigious awards program."
The winners of this year's Border Security Awards were selected by a panel of judges led by Chuck Brooks, whose dossier includes positions as adjunct professor at Johns Hopkins University, the first director of legislative affairs for the Science and Technology Directorate of the Department of Homeland Security and a defense and foreign policy advisor to the late Senator Arlen Spector.
