Founded in 1912 and with many successful films to its name, including “The Godfather,” “Indiana Jones,” “Transformers” and “Mission: Impossible”, Paramount Pictures is one of America’s oldest movie studios.
The Challenge: With 10 critical security systems including perimeter protection, fire alarm, intrusion, access control, and video surveillance systems using different operating systems, the company needed a way to centrally monitor and manage incidents for improved response times and better overall protection. With these disparate systems, it took multiple operators in the command center to respond to an incident, not including the responders on the ground, which meant Paramount needed a more efficient and effective way to respond.
The Solution: For the highest level of security possible, Paramount chose to invest in enterprise command center software (ECCS) by SureView Systems to consolidate all of its security and life safety systems across the globe in a simple, effective, and central-managed security response solution. Paramount combined emergency management, emergency response, and business continuity under the Business Resiliency Group to more effectively identify risks and mitigation practices, and expanded the role of its private command center beyond the monitoring of its production lots to providing 24/7 monitoring of global operations.
SureView’s enterprise platform met the company’s need for a simple, user-friendly, interface that wasn’t over-complicated and didn’t require a lot of time to install, configure and learn. The platform also is UL certified for alarm monitoring.
