KBVigilance can report that Keith Bloodworth, CEO of CNL Software, a world leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software has been named by IFSEC International as one of the most influential people within the security industry.

As part of the 40th birthday celebrations at IFSEC International, the show has worked hard with industry leaders and their extensive readership to compile a list of 40 of the most influential people in the global security and fire industries.

Mr Bloodworth was selected as the 6th most influential person within the global security and fire industries. The magazine quoted that one of his nominations reads, "Few others have invested as much time, energy and resources into fundamental innovation within this industry as Keith. His vision and execution of this is helping to secure the future of each and every one of us."

IFSEC International recognized Keith as “shaping the integration technology and his vision of a connected and intelligent physical security has inspired those around him to build interest in PSIM as an innovative and useful technology idea”.

“It is great to be recognized as an agent of change within the industry. I have long been an advocate of bringing best practices from the IT industry and introducing these concepts and ideas into physical security. I believe this will help catapult physical security practices from closed, antiquated and expensive to engaged, informative and valued”, Keith Bloodworth comments. “I would also like to take this opportunity to recognize the teams of people around me whose continuing hard work and support have helped to bring our innovations in PSIM security from concept to reality”.

IPSecurityCenter PSIM Selected by Abu Dhabi Police

In another success story of ICL, the company’s IPSecurityCentre has been selected by ATECO, a United Arab Emirates based systems integrator to provide the integration and management platform for the Abu Dhabi Police (ADP) GHQ.

SecurityAbu Dhabi Police operates with other agencies to create a safer society by increasing public order, reducing crime and removing sense of fear, as well as contributing to the achievement of justice among the general public.

This latest initiative will enable ADP to make better use of their systems, by consolidating the large number of disparate video surveillance and security systems into a single unified security management solution. It will provide a single view of all assets on one mapping surface, permitting operators to select and control cameras using a single set of controls irrespective of the manufacturer of the camera, DVR, NVR or VMS.

The solution will connect 19 remote locations bringing together systems from manufacturers including Milestone, Genetec, Guetbruck, VDG DivaShell, Vanguard, Kaba, Solarwinds and ESRI.  Additionally, it will provide system healthcare monitoring, notifying of any device failure or symptoms leading to failure of any device on their security network. This will enable ADP to proactively manage the maintenance of their entire estate of systems.

ATECO was established in 1987, and has since evolved as a leading systems integrator in the GCC. It was selected by ADP due to its strength in engineering practices and all related disciplines including Design, Application Engineering, Planning, Quality Assurance, Project Management, Installation, Application Programming, Commissioning and Product Support.

“We are delighted to have been selected by Ateco. This is a prestigious project as ADP is seen as a leading light in best practice within law enforcement in the region. CNL Software has a great track record at delivery law enforcement command and control solutions that enable multi-agency collaboration, and I am certain this will be the start of a much larger program”, said Daniel Bloodworth, Technical Sales Manager Middle East – CNL Software. “We look forward to working with Ateco on this as well as other projects in the near future.”
