Smartmatic launches the Unified Security Platform

Caracas, May 19, 2003.- Smartmatic, the device-networking solutions provider, officially announced the launching of its Unified Security Platform (USP), a physical security and automation solution adjustable to any industry needs.

Based on SmartBank - Smartmatic's proprietary solution for large branch office networks, USP provides the most complete software, hardware, and network infrastructure to supervise the physical security of large multisite facilities, regardless of their geographic location.

"USP has the essential characteristics of SmartBank, but expands them to multisite enterprises with more than one facility, like educational, government, healthcare, and commercial facilities", says Paul Babic, Product and Marketing Manager.

He adds that: "Given that the basic concept meets the needs of the banking sector, where security is a fundamental aspect, USP includes the best physical security practices of the industry".

"With this new platform for physical security, automation, video-surveillance, access control, and fire detection for large facility networks, Smartmatic expands its offer of physical security to different technical markets. Its successful experience in the banking sector is its best guarantee", he adds.
