RA'ANANA, Israel, January 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that NICE Situator has been named the Best Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) Solution as part of the 2012 Government Security News (GSN) Homeland Security Awards. The GSN Awards acknowledge the outstanding achievements of security vendors and government agencies at the federal, state and municipal levels.
Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD), a NICE customer, was also recognized by GSN with an award for the Most Notable Railroad/Mass Transit Security Program.
NICE Situator was chosen as the Best PSIM Solution by a panel of judges based on Situator's successful deployments, advanced analytics, and deep vertical market expertise. NICE's submission also pointed to the security, safety and operational value for the customer and to the fact that NICE Situator goes much further than other PSIM solutions by moving beyond integration to address the entire incident lifecycle. This helps security operations better manage, predict, and prevent events, and make continuous improvements.
"The winners' plaques went to an exceptional group of companies and government agencies," said Jacob Goodwin, Editor-in-Chief of Government Security News (GSN) Magazine. "Among entrants in the PSIM category, NICE was selected as the best by our objective judging panel for technological innovation, providing increased efficiency, and its view to future organizational requirements."
"This is a real honor, and one more indication of our leadership in the security, safety and operations market," said Yaron Tchwella, Security President and EVP Business Operations at NICE. "I am also proud that Denver RTD was recognized because it shows how a world-class transit system with a vast, open infrastructure can benefit from using NICE security solutions."
The GSN award is the most recent in a series of announcements recognizing the unique value of NICE Situator. This includes NICE's ranking as a Tier 1 PSIM Company by Frost & Sullivan and as a PSIM world market leader in IMS's latest report.
