Frost & Sullivan Awards VidSys 2008 North American Integrated Security Emerging Company of the Year Award

VidSys Recognized for Leadership Position in the Fast-Growing Physical Security Information Management Sector

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - March 27, 2008) - VidSys, the leading provider of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software for Situation Management, today announced that Frost & Sullivan, the global growth consulting company, has awarded VidSys with its 2008 North American Integrated Security Emerging Company of the Year Award. Recognized for its leadership in the burgeoning PSIM sector, VidSys' software is deployed in some of the largest state and city command and control centers in the U.S.

"We're honored that Frost & Sullivan has recognized VidSys as the emerging company of the year in the integrated security sector," explained David Fowler, senior vice president of marketing and development for VidSys. "As security threats and related events grow in volume and intensity, security personnel can be buried in data from a variety of incompatible security devices and systems. To help identify and resolve critical situations in real time, VidSys' open, robust PSIM applications and platform empower personnel to focus on managing the situation rather than the technology and data. We're proud that Frost & Sullivan has recognized our hard work."

VidSys has been recognized for its product innovation capabilities in introducing the physical security information management (PSIM) platform, which has helped to bridge the gap between the information technology (IT) and the security industries. By focusing on the complete integration of security systems, and overlaying intelligence engines to assist situational awareness, VidSys has been able to provide a solution compatible with different devices and to help organizations identify and resolve situations quickly.

"With the inclusion of Virtual Tracker, Google Maps, and a Web-based user interface, VidSys has extended the integration of various systems further, to utilize the power of the Internet while maintaining security," said George C. Paul, Frost & Sullivan research analyst. "The company has demonstrated excellence in technology innovation and strategic partnerships to advance the integration of security systems. In view of this and the recent awards received, Frost & Sullivan presents VidSys the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Award for Emerging Company of the Year in the North American Integrated Security market."

The Frost & Sullivan Award for Emerging Company of the Year is presented each year to the company that has emerged as a significant participant within its industry. This company is perceived to have exhibited outstanding management, superior market growth, exceptional customer service and the ability to combine technology and successful strategic initiatives. This company has the exceptional know-how to take advantage of market changes through the execution of innovative strategies within the existing competitive landscape.
