Siemens has announced ‘Secom Technical Services’ as the first Australian solution partner for the growing Smart Infrastructure building security portfolio ‘Siveillance’.
The partnership will focus on offering open, modular, and fully scalable solutions for critical infrastructure, including defence facilities, correctional institutions, government department and agency buildings. The Siveillance portfolio is already in use across key sites in Australia, including within the ports, healthcare, correctional, and premium office vertical markets.
One of the leading national providers of integrated security services, Secom Technical Services is a wholly owned subsidiary of Secom Group, ranked #1 globally for online security systems and in the top 100 of Forbes’ list of most innovative companies.
Jeff Connolly, CEO of Siemens Australia, said that there has never been a more important time for mid to large sized industrial customers to assess how they manage risk, while reducing operational costs. “Critical infrastructure facilities are no longer passive assets – more and more, they are digitally connected. This has changed the building security landscape, and we are seeing greater demand for flexibility, as well as open, scalable security architecture that reflects the rapidly changing needs of the market.”
“With a long history of providing security solutions to Government departments, Secom’s experience in public sector security is second-to-none. We welcome Secom as a solution partner and look forward to focusing together on the critical infrastructure market which requires robust security technology in a dynamic and fast-paced environment,” added Mr. Connolly.
Established in 1986, with offices throughout Australia, Secom Technical Services has over 100 employees across the country with in depth technical skills. Secom provides world class training and development strategies to ensure the workforce is current with leading edge technologies.
“We’re excited to partner with Siemens to offer their world-renowned security solutions to our customers in Australia. Secom is an agile and innovative company reputed for providing solutions that match rapidly evolving market requirements. We’re therefore pleased to partner with a like-minded company such as Siemens. The combination of our local knowledge and expertise in this space and Siemens’ technological prowess and breadth of solutions is a win-win for customers and the market,” said Chris Anlezark, Director at Secom Technical Services.
The partnership will encompasses the entire Siemens Smart Infrastructure security portfolio, known as Siveillance Suite. The portfolio includes integrated access control technology, IP video management software and an Incident Management workflow engine specifically designed to support security management at critical infrastructure sites. Known as Siveillance Control Pro (formerly Siveillance Vantage), it not only ties together all the sub-systems currently used to protect and manage a site, but also allows security policies and procedures to be integrated using workflows and automated actions.
Secom offers a personalised approach to security services that includes the engineering design, installation and maintenance of access control, CCTV systems and Type 1A solutions.
