CNL wins Govies award for 2nd consecutive year

Ashburn, Va (USA)

For the second year in a row, CNL Software's Ipsecuritycenter solution has been voted the most outstanding PSIM product by Security Today magazine in the Govies Government Security Awards.

An independent panel of judges from the security industry selected the top entries in the 2017 categories, including Ipsecuritycenter PSIM, based on criteria including features, innovation, user friendliness, interoperability, quality, design, market opportunity, and Impact in the security industry, technical advances, and scalability.

“The Govies is an amazing product recognition programme whereby companies in the security industry can highlight their technology and solutions that work flawlessly within the government vertical,” said Ralph C. Jensen, editor in chief of Security Today magazine. “We received 28% more entries this year, which also corresponds with the need to provide better security options not only at the federal level but also at the state and municipal level of government. I believe these products and solutions only prove that the government relies heavily on the technology advances in the private sector.”

“We are delighted that Ipsecuritycenter has been chosen for the top award in the Govies PSIM category for a second year”, says Mike Mostow, General Manager – Americas at CNL Software. “Our Ipsecuritycenter is critical to the missions of many homeland security, defense, safe cities, and mass transit customers who rely on the platform for situational awareness, the accurate and early detection of incidents, and the ability to resolve them faster and more incisively. CNL Software was chosen for these important security programmes because of our superior technology, innovation, and the technical and operational know-how to help drive impactful outcomes.”

Meaning they ranked third, still behind both 125 kHz proximity and smart card readers in popularity. "Hardly the credential revolution that manufacturers were hoping for." says Jim Dearing, analyst at research company, IHS Markit.
