Physical Security Management
Actionable intelligence for command and control centers
Nextiva PSIM generates Actionable Intelligence from vast amounts of data to enhance security effectiveness, while facilitating system management and optimizing costs.
Immediate situational awareness and faster response leveraging a intuitive 3D multi-layer user interface, efficient organizational control and management through systemic procedures and standards, contingency planning capabilities for natural disasters and calamities, reduced operational costs through efficient deployment of equipment and resources, and optimized planning and preparedness for situations using virtual simulations alongside debriefing and analysis of real events ensures that Nextiva PSIM will route the right information to the right people at the right time in your organization.
How Does PSIM Work?
Nextiva PSIM captures information from a variety of security, safety, and building management systems, enables the fusion of the information for a user to view, correlate, and analyze the information to identify situations quickly and efficiently, and initiate and manage response to the situations in collaboration with local agencies. PSIM enables various phases of an incident management cycle, facilitates enhanced situational awareness and response, and is based on an open and scalable architecture.
- Planning: PSIM's Scenario Generator lets planners run virtual threat scenarios including crowd behavior, gas propagation, blast mitigation and floods and more, to determine in advance the response procedures and level of preparedness. Using a 3D geospatial model of the site, PSIM helps determine the optimal placement of security equipment.
- Training: Users can train on a single interface providing a unified view across the entire operation. Operators learn to identify and assess consequences of potential situations and are familiarized with the standard policies and procedures of the organization.
- Real-Time Monitoring and Control: By providing real-time monitoring and control for routine operations and emergency situations, pre-defined emergency plans are presented in a separate operational view in the form of procedures, checklists and call trees enabling operators to quickly respond and mitigate the event according to standard policies and procedures.
- Reporting and Debriefing: A built-in reporting tool generates manual, automatic or scheduled reports. Using reports on the various aspects of a given incident, PSIM provides vital intelligence about what transpired as well as other variables. Logging and auditing operators’ actions lets organizations analyze the process and make potential adjustments for improvement.
Enhanced Awareness and Response
Nextiva PSIM provides various view formats to enhance awareness and response times.
- A geographic map view allows operators focus on multiple locations in a geographic region simultaneously.
- A multi-site view allows operators to monitor incidents and status at multiple sites simultaneously, interact with different sites through chat, and take control and monitor the sites if necessary.
- Two and three dimensional maps for indoors and outdoors, along with the ability to use multiple layers to represent streets, locations and coverage areas of cameras and other sensors, as well the delineation of threat regions and damage zones allows operators to track incidents and suspects, initiate and manage response, and report on potential escalations or spread of incidents on a real-time basis.
- In addition, industry standard workflows systemically ensure that operators respond to routine and emergency situations based on standard policies and procedures.
What Can Nextiva PSIM Do For Your Organization?
Nextiva PSIM’s scalable architecture allows multiple users to view information – events, alerts and video from multiple sites simultaneously. In addition, PSIM allows operators situated in different locations to collaborate and share information. An open SDK allows integration and capture of information from a multitude of sensors and systems including access control, intrusion, CCTV, radar, border control, and HVAC systems as well as leveraging of GIS, various modes of communication systems, and public and private databases.
In addition, the Nextiva PSIM platform can help organizations:
- Address Emerging Security Needs: Nextiva PSIM addresses the emerging security needs of security leaders heading up large security operations with either centralized or decentralized command, control, and communications centers.
- Enable Regulations and Compliance: Nextiva PSIM provides the ability for security leaders to maintain organizational control and management through centralized and decentralized monitoring, design and enforce standard policies and procedures for response to routine or emergency situations, and build in redundancy to ensure business continuity in crisis situations. Nextiva PSIM’s industry standard workflows and checklists ensure that organizations have repeatable and predictable procedures in place to respond to potential threats and incidents, enabling them to address risk, liability, and compliance requirements.
- Enhance Security Operations: Nextiva PSIM provides today’s security leaders a solution to increase situational awareness in their Command, Control and Communications while reducing response times and lowering total cost of ownership of their security infrastructure. An intuitive 3D multi-layer user interface, features enabling fusion of information from multiple sensors and systems, and systemic prioritization of tasks improves operator effectiveness and reduces response times.
- Optimize Investments: Security and IT leaders can leverage this cost-effective integration platform within existing systems distributed in locations. Built using open platform architecture, PSIM allows organizations to integrate systems – optimizing security investments.
