Cogito Universal Security Management System is the front-end that integrates all your security management tasks. Cogito is a unified command center for managing and monitoring access control, video, alarms and more.
Financial institutions need advanced tools that can leverage the existing IT backbone to correlate information from traditionally separate subsystems — video surveillance, access control, alarm management and reporting.
Banks and financial institutions rely on video surveillance and advanced security systems to reduce fraud and increase safety. With cash and financial instruments close at hand, the industry is intrinsically vulnerable to crime. Financial institutions also deal with highly confidential documents including commercially sensitive data, customers’ personal information and proprietary research.
Managing the common aspects of security operations such as access control, monitoring, video surveillance, reporting, alarm management and configuration within a single intuitive platform enables security teams to be more productive, while minimizing operational costs.
Cogito is used to manage access control through card readers, PIN pads and biometric readers with an advanced access control feature set, such as pre-set lock/unlock schedules and overrides, with comprehensive role based access permissions. Alarm monitoring encompasses duress alarms, intrusion systems and video surveillance alarms, providing the security team with on-screen and e-mail alerts for events that require attention, plus related workflow, analytics and reporting. Video surveillance is also fully integrated with all access points, alarms, analytics and reporting.
Cogito also integrates mustering during emergency evacuations, badging, visitor management and other valuable features.
