Lodi, September 2014 – Milestone Systems, world leading provider of  Video Management Software (VMS), has finalized a partnership with Zucchetti, the first Italian Information Technology company, for the integration of the XProtect video management platform with the XAtlas access control system.

Milestone Systems and Zucchetti are ready to revolutionise the PSIM world (Physical Security Information Management), for handling the information coming from security systems.

At Security Essen, the most important trade fair dedicated to the security and fire protection sector, scheduled from 23rd to 26th September in Germany, the two companies will present the integration between XProtect 2014, the new IP video management platform from Milestone Systems, and the XAtlas access control solution developed by Zucchetti Axess, the part of Zucchetti Group specialised in the field of security and automation.

There will be presented a turn-key solution consisting of two applications which  for many years now, have been benchmarks in the field of video surveillance and access control: 

  • XProtect is powerful and user-friendly video management software, designed with an open architecture. It means that all XProtect products are compatible with thousands of IP cameras, digital encoders and video recorders from hundreds of manufacturers, thereby offering the freedom to use different hardware based on individual budget needs and requirements.
  • XAtlas, the multi-platform security management system designed by Zucchetti Axess, allows integrating access control, workplace security, time and attendance data collection, anti-intrusion and fire fighting, video surveillance, vehicle transit management, parking management and company canteens.

In order to show all the functionalities and advantages of this one-of-a-kind solution, which aims to revolutionise the way of designing security management for people and buildings, Milestone Systems and Zucchetti Axess will be presenting the solution for the visitors at Pavilion 2.0/Stand 216.

The joint participation in the fair will be only the starting point of a long-lasting partnership between the two companies, in order to provide complete and integrated solutions for companies from any sector and of any size.

“We have chosen to integrate our solutions with those of Milestone Systems because both of us want to provide our customers the most efficient, flexible and technologically advanced access control and video surveillance system available on the market,” states Domenico Uggeri, Zucchetti Vice-President. “The benefits for the users will be remarkable, starting with the fact that the access control functionalities of XAtlas software will be directly accessible through the XProtect platform interface, with modular and scalable settings, according to the specific requirements. Moreover, we are striving to reduce to a minimum the economic and organisational impact, since our offer can be adapted to the already existing company network infrastructure.”

“We are excited to intensify our cooperation with a leading Access Control manufacturer like Zucchetti. Milestone Channel Partners and customers now gain the advantage of the deep relationship between Zucchetti and Milestone,” Says Claus Roenning, Director Southern Europe & DACH, Milestone Systems. “The ability to integrate Zucchetti’s access control and Milestone software open software into high-value PSIM solutions utilizes our technologies to their fullest extent to be a driving force for our combined partner communities.”
