The protection of critical infrastructure depends on effective perimeter security. 3eTI’s VirtualFence platform is already a proven solution, deployed by the U.S. DoD to detect unauthorized individuals approaching and breaching established physical or virtual security thresholds. It is the first perimeter security solution to achieve the DoD Red Team endorsement and an Information Assurance Approval.

Now, the integration of Milestone XProtec video management technologies with VirtualFence means customers will have even more functionality in support of their missions, including enhanced automatic alerting and intelligent video analytics.

“These products meet the stringent security and assurance requirements demanded by the DoD, so deploying them as an integrated solution will save agency customers a significant amount of time and expense,” says Charlene Mowery, Ultra Electronics, 3eTI vice president of global business and marketing.

Mowery continued: “This agreement enabled the implementation of highly effective perimeter security solutions without the need for additional systems engineering or separate information assurance accreditation, so we are now looking forward to expanding our already substantial work with the UK Navy and supporting the implementation of this technology into other DoD agencies.”

“Ultimately, this partnership is about helping our government customers secure the nation’s critical infrastructure, by allowing them to access two first-class technologies as a unified solution,” says Walter Coady, Milestone key account manager, federal systems.
