GM Security Technologies opens $1.8M response center
With an investment of $1.8 million and the creation of 17 new jobs, GM Security Technologies recently inaugurated a state of the art Critical Incident Response and Replication Center to monitor, analyze and manage threats and new opportunities for clients.
“The GMST Critical Incident Response and Replication Center is a next generation installation that combines process analysis and multiple data workloads, from different disciplines within the organization, devices and technology to create a global and focused vision of the diverse variables that influence our client’s daily operation,” said Guillermo Martinez, CEO of GM Holdings, parent company of GM Security Technologies.
“This process and analysis allows the identification and remediation of threats and new operational and business opportunities that would not be detectable through traditional mediums,” he said.
To comply with a new global paradigm, it’s essential to have the capacity to store, host and analyze client data in a way that allows the revision of processes and automation of rules-based responses, he added.
The center’s technological evolution accelerates GM Security Technologies’ capability to predict and respond to challenges as it allows for the identification of trends and data correlation from diverse sources, said Martinez.
“The paradigm has changed in terms of storing and data analysis capabilities through focus on Big Data models that includes the description of operational transactions, security events and unstructured data such as videos, event logs, and intrusion transactions. The convergence of these workloads enables us to provide to our clients actionable intelligence, such as customer behavior, trends analysis and demographics, among others, ultimately enabling business decisions,” he said.
Currently, GM Security Technologies provides services to more than 300 clients, supervises 150,000 sensors, over 5,000 video cameras and 3,000 controlled access doors. The company provides information technology, processing, capturing and information analysis services for multiple clients in the government and industrial sectors.
GMST has three data centers linked by fiber optic systems and redundant connectivity.
