Security Product’s Government Security Awards honor outstanding products for the government sector
COPENHAGEN – April 14th, 2010. Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software, has been honored by Security Products magazine with the Gold Govies Government Security Award in the category for Video Management Systems for its top-of-the-line solution: XProtect® Corporate.
The Security Products’ Government Security Awards were launched in 2009 and re-launched as the Govies in 2011. The revamped program gave top industry entrants the added benefit of displaying their products in the Security Products booth at the annual GovSec Conference & Expo that was held March 29-31 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The GovSec conference also featured the U.S. Law Enforcement Conference & Exposition at the same time.
The judges narrowed down the 2011 submissions to those achieving top status, and Milestone Systems XProtect Corporate version 4.0 was chosen for the Gold Govies Award for Video Management Systems.
“As the nation faces evolving and multi-faceted security threats, government agencies, law enforcement and the military need to stay updated on the latest technology to assist them in maintaining national security and public safety. We are very pleased that our most sophisticated, high performance offering, XProtect Corporate, won this award to heighten awareness of it for this sector,” states Christian Bohn, VP Product Management and Marketing at Milestone Systems.
Version 4.0 of XProtect Corporate was released in January of this year. With infinitely scalable federated architecture, extended user rights, bookmarking, multi-stage video archiving and grooming, Milestone has expanded the capabilities for powerful, reliable management of large-scale security system operations.
