RA’ANANA, ISRAEL, June 2, 2014 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that the Naftoport Ltd, the major oil transshipment port in Poland, is successfully using NICE Situator and NiceVision intrusion detection video analytics to protect its critical resources. The project integrates nine existing gateway security systems to enhance situational awareness for improved incident management and operational efficiency.
NICE’s advanced situation management solution, NICE Situator, offers a single, centralized interface and automated, adaptive workflows that are helping port authorities respond quicker and more efficiently to unfolding incidents. Working together with ISM EuroCenter S.A., NICE has fully integrated NiceVision intrusion detection analytics, surveillance cameras, radar, intruder and hold up alarms, passive infrared, ACS, GPS and automatic identification systems with NICE Situator. Even sonar is being fed into Situator to detect intrusions from underwater.
The NICE solutions are also being used by Naftoport to optimize its day-to-day security operations in order to minimize down times and ensure operations continuity. Roughly 40 procedures are being automated with Situator to proactively prevent any disruptions.
Naftoport plays a vital role in the supply of petroleum to refineries in Poland and Germany, as well as the transit of crude oil from Russia and Kazakhstan to the ports of Western Europe, the United States and the Far East.
Cezary JóÅºwiak, Head of Security at Naftoport
“Integrating our disparate security systems within NICE Situator has made our security team more efficient, effective, and agile by automating response processes and administration. It gives them a single operating platform through which they can proactively monitor, manage, and maintain the safety and security of the port, reducing risks and improving incident management.”
Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE Security Group
