EMC eyes video snooping biz

Watching the watchers that watch you

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Folks may be tightening their wallets under gray economical times, but the need to keep close tabs on our fellow man is in as great of demand as ever.

That's why EMC rolling out a handful of new services to assist customers in linking storage systems to the video surveillance units, card readers, alarms, intrusion detection systems, and so on that keep humanity from reverting to a pack of wild, rampaging animals.

The storage vendor is teaming up with video security specialist and domestic spying technology supplier, Verint Systems to implement the services, which are available now. EMC will target customers in retail, financial services, gaming, transportation, air travel, correctional facilities, education, border control — you name it — who have heaps of digital surveillance devices that are disconnected from each another, and no storage plan to sift through the data.

EMC's new security service assessment is a three-parter:

1) Assessment for Physical Security: where EMC and Verint, (as well as partners such as Unisys, British Telecom, Orion Systems Group and others) identify a customer's security requirements.

2) Design for Physical Security: uses the information collected in the assessment plan to design a customer's physical security environment to include any available connectivity between items such as cameras, alarms, video archiving, encoders, video software and network services.

3) Implementation for Physical Security: is all about selling a bundle that includes Verint IP video software and EMC Clariion-based storage. EMC says it will also install everything, including cameras and other physical security devices.

Pricing for the service depends on the size and magnitude of the security plan, according to EMC. ®
