The CBORD Group has formed Integrated Security Solutions Group designed to focus on the company’s growing security business. The new sector is expected to support the deployment of CBORD’s growing catalog of security hardware and software. Mathew Birnbaum, Integrated Security Solutions Group manager, will lead the new business unit.
Integrated Security is intended to be a resource, including system consulting, design, and implementation, strategic partner selection and management, product strategy and management and marketing.
CBORD’s partner program, known as the CBORD Data Xchange Program, includes a variety of security providers such as Ingersoll Rand, HID, NICE Systems, Pelco and Cisco Systems.
The security group’s aim is to extend the reach of security systems to provide more complete control of campus security operations, including one-card transactions, access control, video surveillance, alarm management and emergency notification.
“In the ever-changing field of security technology, a fully integrated system and service mentality is key,” said Tim Tighe, CBORD’s president and CEO.
