Ensuring the Security of Seaports and Cargo

Keeping Seaports and Valuable Cargo Secure by Integrating all of your Security Systems into a Single Platform 

Ensuring the secure transport of valuable cargo from theft, damage and loss in your seaport requires the ability to identify and verify potential unfolding events as they happen, or even before. Proactive, comprehensive NICE security and surveillance solutions can help. They protect seaports with automatic and semi-automatic tools and complete situational awareness via NICE Situator to assist in the detection, verification and resolution of security events in real time. 

Advanced Security, Surveillance and Situation Management for Seaports and their Cargo 

Seaports are fast-paced, high-traffic 24/7 environments subject to severe weather conditions. Operating in vast, sprawling environments, with a perimeter that has access to both land and sea make them challenging to secure and vulnerable to nefarious attacks, including terrorism. With 90% of the world’s trade transported via cargo containers, an attack on any single seaport could have major economic repercussions. Adding to the challenge, seaport’s security operations are tasked with the protection of dock operations; warehousing; piping; port employees; terminal operations; and the shipping companies that load and offload cargo containers. In order to ensure the safety and security of all these entities from theft, damage and loss requires a robust security solution that addresses each of these areas.

 

The NICE Security Solution for Seaports is an integrated multi-layered security and surveillance solution that monitors your infrastructure, identifies potential unfolding events, and verifies them with automatic or semi-automatic tools for real-time response. Along with its ability to integrate standard security systems such as audio, video and access control, the solution also integrates systems unique to the seaport environment such as radar, vessel tracking systems and AIS, long-range acoustic devices (LRAD), perimeter intrusion detection systems, weather feeds, mass notifications and more. The NICE Security Solution for Seaports provides full situation management capabilities enabling personnel to improve operational productivity and reduce downtime by managing incidents effectively, detecting and controlling theft and terrorism attempts, and managing safety issues.

 

With a single, unified platform, the efficiency and efficacy of your security operations is vastly improved. NICE provides a Common Operating Picture (COP) with real-time alerts and information from all the integrated systems, enabling complete situational awareness and pre-planned situation management capabilities. Task automation not only eliminates the potential for human error, it helps ensures regulatory compliance, including TWIC. The NICE Security Solution for Seaports greatly enhances your ability to prepare for, detect, respond to, and debrief quickly and effectively all routine and emergency security situations.

Not only does NICE Security Solutions for Seaports secure your operations from theft and other damaging and costly activities, it also provide valuable insights that can improve your efficiency. Flexible IP architecture provides access to live and recorded video with which your team can identify operational inefficiencies. Video recording and archiving capabilities enable you to investigate and rectify issues accurately and immediately. With NICE, you not only secure your seaport’s infrastructure, you gain control over it.
