Several years ago, faced with security systems that were deployed with minimal or no managerial oversight, Cisco began searching for a way to address the need to centralize and improve physical security management. The solution had to address global integration and service and support issues for all these disparate system, as well provisions for universal building access cards unique to each user. Cisco Security, Technology & Systems (STS) developed a centralized server architecture based on a single set of equipment standards, supported by regional security servers worldwide. Cisco also standardized the access-control and alarm systems at every site, and supports them with a single set of software tools.
