CNL Software and Promise Technology form all-new strategic technology partnership

CNL Software, the specialist Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) solutions provider, has entered into a technology collaboration with Promise Technology, the developer of open storage platforms for video surveillance. The new partnership will enable CNL Software to provide an IPSecurityCenter PSIM platform in which Promise’s high performance storage solutions can be used by risk and security management-focused professionals. This creates peerless integration opportunities along with the assured reliability offered by Promise’s surveillance-optimised storage solutions.

Promise Technology has become the surveillance industry’s default open storage platform. The company has created a large ecosystem of partners as it strives to offer customers a wide range of integration possibilities that have been tested and validated. This ecosystem includes the leading software and hardware vendors in the industry who are committed to delivering high-performance video surveillance solutions that help businesses and organisations detect crime, identify suspects, improve productivity and reduce losses.

“We believe in a connected world where security and life safety are not compromised by silos of information that are not able to communicate,” explained Adlan Hussain, vice-president of marketing at CNL Software. “Technology should take the complexity out of decision-making by integrating systems, people and processes. That’s why we work with Promise Technology. Together, we’re able to create an agnostic method for connecting critical technologies.”

John van den Elzen, general manager for surveillance at Promise Technology, responded: “Promise’s server and storage appliances are custom-built to offer the highest level of performance for IP video surveillance. When it comes to PSIM implementations, we’re aware that assurance and quality are paramount in order to both reduce support needs and ensure availability. Our focus on innovation means that we’re more efficient, allowing less hardware, less maintenance and a lower cost of ownership. We’re active in all the key video surveillance segments and can offer solutions for deployments of any size.”
