Verint unveils series of enhancements to Situational Intelligence Platform

Verint Systems has announced several enhancements to its Situational Intelligence Platform that helps organisations in strengthening their security strategies while providing Actionable Intelligence to improve operations. Sitting at the core of the Intelligent Security Operations Centre (ISOC), the Situational Intelligence Platform provides a suite of integrated features that enable complete situational control in complex security environments. This integrated, modular and flexible platform drives a better user experience, facilitates real-time monitoring, provides greater situational awareness and helps security teams respond faster and more efficiently to situations when they occur.

Customers and the market at large face mounting business and security challenges. That has propelled Verint to infuse more analytics and automation into its Situational Intelligence Platform. These innovations are critical because cyber and physical security threats are becoming more prevalent while data is growing exponentially, driving organisations to seek more advanced solutions to better address risk.

Security managers and operators rely on a multitude of solutions and systems to ensure comprehensive protection which results in an enormous volume of data to analyse. This influx of information can often be overwhelming and, in most cases, manual processes are needed to manage an event across all security components for full awareness, which is a significant barrier to automation.

Verint’s ISOC concept is designed to address this challenge head on. The ISOC aggregates multiple systems into a single interface and exposes it to an analytic layer that results in the delivery of Actionable Intelligence. The ISOC facilitates the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning to analyse data across an enterprise’s domains and assess how it impacts the business as a whole. By unifying data to enable the detection and identification of risks, enterprises can move to a more predictive threat model.

Unified operations

Verint’s Situational Intelligence Platform consists of several modules that can be implemented separately or as part of the integrated platform.

One of the platform enhancement is VMS One. With this enhanced module, end users gain a single, consolidated platform for the ISOC with video at the centre and seamless correlation of sensors and alarms, allowing operators to immediately gain complete situational control while determining the appropriate intelligence-powered response.

The solution ‘fuses’ all relevant information, such as video, alarm notification, device state, analytics metadata, search output and more on a dynamic GIS-map based interface, providing a clear and immediate picture of an incident and enabling faster and more efficient response. In addition to VMS One, the enhanced platform provides new capabilities in the Dispatch, FaceDetect and Incident Management modules.

“As threats continue to grow in complexity, mission-critical organisations face significant challenges,” said Alan Stoddard, vice-president and general manager for situational intelligence solutions at Verint. “Each component of our suite of solutions is a critical part of our intelligent security strategy developed to address customer requirements for a more effective, intelligent approach to security operations and risk management. Now, our customers are equipped with comprehensive options designed to further synchronise IT, cyber and security operations across infrastructures and proactively address and mitigate modern day threats.”
