Verint Systems | Date:
Verint Systems announced that Eastman Chemical Company is benefitting from its use of the IP video management platform from Verint. Eastman Chemical Company uses the physical security solution integrated with technologies from EMCR and Orion Systems Group to further its focus on and commitment to securing people, property and assets.
To meet stringent security requirements for its manufacturing facilities in Jefferson, Pennsylvania and Longview, Texas, Eastman sought a reliable and highly scalable physical security solution combining IP video technology with a storage platform. Based on the success of the Verint solution at its headquarters, Verint, EMC and Orion Systems Group emerged as the ideal technology providers to meet its needs. In October 2009, the company extended the technology across the two North American manufacturing locations to enable surveillance and perimeter monitoring capabilities. The implementation comprised Verint's IP video management platform including VMS and encoders that leverage the networked storage system.
“Verint and EMC have demonstrated that they work extremely well together, and both companies understand our security requirements. With their help, we set up a compatibility lab onsite to test different equipment in a production environment. The result was a stable and reliable solution that we have been very pleased with,” said Keith Bennett, Site Security Manager, Eastman.
“Ongoing support from Verint, EMC and Orion has been excellent. The team's data storage expertise and knowledge of the latest security technologies, practices and trends are extremely valuable, making them trusted advisors and partners,” said Kirk Jones, Eastman's Security Technologist.
Verint software, along with video encoders, enable Eastman to capture video images, optimize bandwidth and storage utilization, leverage flexible video search capabilities, and benefit from programmable video retention and storage. As a result, the organization is benefitting from a more complete picture of activity and operations, and achieving lower total cost of ownership, and superior security and reliability.
The platform performs in conjunction with EMC storage to continuously record and archive video data for viewing incidents in real time from virtually anywhere. Together, EMC and Verint improve management of video surveillance data from capture through monitoring, analyzing, protecting, securing, archiving, and evidence authentication with a jointly engineered IP-based software solution.
“Verint is pleased to have worked with EMC and Orion to deliver the solution to enhance security and mitigate risk at Eastman,” said Debjit Das, VP of Global Marketing, Verint Video Intelligence Solutions.
