HCL Security, Cisco collaborate to deliver IP-based safety and security offerings

Combines capabilities of Cisco's Smart+Connected Communities and HCL Security's Safe State architecture

By CBR Staff Writer

HCL Security has signed a memorandum of understanding with Cisco to collaborate on delivering IP-based safety and security offerings for secure communities. The collaboration is expected to combine the strengths of Cisco’s Smart+Connected Communities leadership with HCL Security’s ‘Safe State’ architecture to deliver safety and security offerings in India initially and later in other countries.

Cisco said that its Smart+Connected safety and security offerings address the complexity of protecting citizens, critical infrastructure and assets by enabling the construction of a common security operations picture while helping to ensure full integration and interoperability between different functional parts of a security system.

HCL Security’s Safe State is an architecture that offers integrated urban safety and security technology offerings with policing and enabling actionable intelligence to make a city secure and safe.

The collaboration is aimed at combining the complementary capabilities of Cisco and HCL Security. With the addition of collaboration and datacentre technologies Cisco is expected to provide an approach for safety and security enabled by the network in detecting, assessing and responding to security threats.

As part of the collaboration, HCL Security will use Cisco technologies to build a Command & Control Centre for next-generation security offerings that will provide customers with features of prevention, automated detection, analysis, and coordinated response to incidents, the companies said.

Dave Stone, vice president, safety and security of Smart+Connected Communities at Cisco, said: Cisco’s Smart+Connected Safety and Security solutions enhance the capabilities of emergency and security personnel by employing next-level infrastructure, technology, services, and platforms to create intelligent, enduring solutions. Our collaboration with HCL Security and its Safe State architecture will help us better address safety and security projects and customer requirements.”
