Autonomy Launches Surveillance Portal

UK-based infrastructure software company Autonomy has launched a web portal for enterprises to monitor security and surveillance activities over the internet.

It said the Situational Awareness Web Portal is based on its Idol technology and is an extension of its Virage command and control platform, which allows monitoring and analysis of security data in real time. It will give users access to intelligence information, risk assessment, and incident response planning.

Autonomy said it can also be integrated with data sources, including access control, video surveillance, license plate recognition, facial recognition, and scene analysis.

David Humphrey, managing director at Autonomy Virage, said: "The new Situational Awareness Web Portal is yet another powerful tool to enable security professionals to connect to intelligence in real time, offering the unrivaled ability to automate security operations and uncover threats which would otherwise be missed."
