Based in Vienna, VA, Vidsys, now an ARES Security company, provides mission critical Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software to Government Agencies, Corporate Enterprises, Transportation Agencies and other Iconic Properties in North America, the Middle East, and the Asia Pacific. “The acquisition of Vidsys provides a launchpad for ARES Security to develop the next generation of PSIM that Security Operations Centers (SOCs) need – an intelligent, responsive, enterprise level system that is seamlessly integrated into the physical security lifecycle of assessment, design, training and real-time operations.” said Ben Eazzetta, CEO of ARES Security.

“There is strong, ongoing demand in the security market for PSIM technology to fill a real-time, incident response capability gap in the SOC that Video and Incident Management Systems have failed to address.

Vidsys products are very complementary to the deep AVERT technology stack that includes AI and machine learning powered rules engines, dynamic pathfinding/tasking for robotic sentries and response systems, site/facility digital twins and modeling/simulation powered assessment, design and training systems.”
