Verint And Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority Win Security Technology Executive Magazine’s 2012 “Security Innovation Award” Silver Medal

Stocks in this article: VRNT

Verint® Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: VRNT) today announced that together with its customer The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), the organizations have been selected as the silver medal recipient for the “2012 Security Innovation Award” from Security Technology Executive magazine.

Those nominated for the Eighth Annual Security Innovation Awards, which recognize the most innovative use of technology and services in the security industry, were selected by the media outlet and a panel of industry experts. Verint and the WMATA’s case study submission showcased the authority’s innovative approach to enhancing technology across its expansive transportation network. Leveraging Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funds that were awarded earlier this year, the authority began a phased approach to upgrading its security platform, including a system-wide deployment of Verint’s Nextiva® Video Management Software™ (VMS).

Connecting the District of Columbia, the state of Maryland and the commonwealth of Virginia, The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority serves as a tri-jurisdictional government agency. It provides rapid transit service under the Metrorail brand, fixed-route bus service under the Metrobus brand and paratransit service under the MetroAccess brand. Metrorail serves a population of 3.4 million within a 1,500-square mile jurisdiction with its 86 stations and more than 100 miles of track.

To help monitor its vast transportation network with dispersed operations, the authority uses Verint’s Nextiva Video Management Software, which today helps WMATA rapidly detect, investigate and act on security-related issues and potential threats. The comprehensive VMS solution promotes more manageable and effective video operations with its automated system health monitoring and diagnostics, live and recorded video viewing, policy-based video distribution, efficient virtual matrix switching and versatile investigation management capabilities. Nextiva integrates its security functionality into a single, configurable user interface for optimal ease-of-use and operator efficiency.
