LOUISVILLE, Colorado, December 15, 2020 —Pivot3, the leading provider of intelligent infrastructure solutions for mission-critical video, announced today that American Security Today recognized the Pivot3 Virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC) with the Platinum ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award For Best Video Data Storage Solution. The Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards, now in its fifth year, is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, highlighting the most cutting-edge and forward-thinking security solutions coming onto the market today.
According to American Security Today, “the Pivot3 Virtual Security Operations Center is an ideal solution to virtualize security workstations, optimize SOC operations and provide mobile and remote access. The Pivot3 vSOC delivers fully secure video streams to any device, anytime, anywhere, regardless of system manufacturer, so customers are able to overcome the limitations of manufacturer-specific PC workstations and reduce the need to invest in expensive, graphics-enabled clients workstations. Customers are also able to reduce costs and mitigate risk by mobilizing their entire security suite. The flexibility of permissions-based distributed security data enables new operational models for surveillance.”
The ‘ASTORS’ Awards are specifically designed to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit and intelligence to end users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets.
“Today, the United States is increasingly focusing on protecting public spaces, as well as IT/cyber security networks and they are calling on innovative companies like Pivot3 to help them do so,” according to Tammy Waitt, co-founder and editorial director of American Security Today.
Pivot3’s vSOC is designed to address the need for security teams to access client workstations running video surveillance and other security-related systems in multiple locations and on multiple devices without using expensive, dedicated desktop workstation hardware. With vSOC, security teams can now get fully functional security workstation capabilities – including video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection, physical security information management, real-time insights from analytics and other security-related systems – on more devices, more securely and more cost-effectively than desktop workstations.
A wide variety of environments can benefit from high-performance, virtual security workstations that provide real-time insight in the event of an incident. Organizations with distributed locations such as university, corporate and medical campuses, airports, safe cities, casinos entertainment complexes and mass transit are all mission-critical environments that require remote and immediate access to video and other security data required to significantly improve incident response times.
