May 24 - NICE Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: NICE), a leading global provider of advanced solutions that enable enterprises and security organizations to extract Insight from Interactions, transactions and surveillance to drive business performance, reduce risk and ensure safety, today announced that India’s Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), NICE’s strategic partner and the project’s prime contractor, will be implementing its comprehensive, integrated security solution offering to enhance the safety and security of India’s Parliament House and the entire surrounding complex in New Delhi.
In this $5 million plus deal, NICE will be providing a comprehensive security solution, based on its NICE Situator situation management solution that integrates multiple, disparate security and safety systems into a single, holistic operational view and enhances real-time response by automating procedures and information sharing.
The selected solution also includes IP video surveillance with advanced video analytics and NICE Inform for multimedia incident information management.
Sandeep Salunke, Director of Parliament Security said, “In light of the recent increase in global terrorism, we need to ensure that we have the best technologies and processes in place to protect one of India’s most cherished icons, our Parliament House, the elected officials and government employees who work there, as well as its visitors. The NICE solution will improve our situational awareness by giving us a unified view of our security situation across the entire Parliament complex. It will also enable us to proactively respond to potential security and safety threats. We look forward to working with the NICE team on our security needs.”
Following a rigorous evaluation process, the selection of NICE from among competing vendors was based on its ability to provide a pre-integrated portfolio of security solutions, which integrate multiple sensors and inputs including high-end video surveillance cameras, acoustic and intrusion sensors, fire detection, 3-D maps and more, into a holistic situational awareness management platform that enables real-time action and event management, as well as post-event investigation and debriefing.
“We are pleased to have been selected to protect India’s Parliament House, which is a major, comprehensive win for the NICE Situator solution, from our recent acquisition,” said Israel Livnat, President, NICE Security Group. “This is a leading edge, strategic security project that reflects how NICE is revolutionizing security situation management by offering an integrated solution that enables proactive real-time response, a complete operational picture, and comprehensive investigation capabilities, based on the situation management software solution. Furthermore, this win reflects how cities around the world which are faced with ongoing crime and terror threats come to NICE to help them protect their citizens and national landmarks. India is increasingly becoming a key market for NICE, as more and more advanced and sophisticated security solutions are implemented in the country. We believe that this prestigious project will help pave the way to further successes with large-scale security management solutions with complex implementations,” Livnat added.
