EMC unveils security services, bundle

The focus is on physical security with tools combining authentication and content management with IP video surveillance

EMC launched a set of services Thursday it says will enable companies to improve on-site security by combining user authentication, backup and content management capabilities with IP video surveillance.

The new EMC Physical Security Solutions line includes assessment, design and implementation services, EMC said.

EMC is also offering turnkey systems – with products from EMC and third party vendors — that can help organizations better capture and store physical security data from company-wide video and network devices. The bundle includes EMC Clariion and Centera storage arrays, RSA security tools and Documentum software along with video IP software from EMC partner Verint System Inc., EMC noted.

Todd Pavone, vice-president of Global Solutions at EMC, declined to disclose pricing for the new services, which are now available. He noted that the company is targeting the many EMC customers that are abandoning standalone VHS tape or analog video processes in security systems for interconnected digital media technology.
