LOCAL GOVERNMENT- PUBLIC SAFETY CAMERAS
ENTERPRISE CLASS STORAGE
The explosion in the use of cameras in policing and public safety has created vast amounts of video data that must be retained, tracked and secured for chain of custody purposes. Even a modest sized Police Department may find themselves generating multiple terabytes of data every year. Other public safety agencies, such as 911 Emergency Response Services, can add to the storage needs of a municipality.
A large US City needed to upgrade their storage capabilities to archive and manage current and future public safety video retention needs and to support their recently updated 911 system's faster response times, computer aided dispatch, GIS mapping and case-based evidence records management.
The team at S-3 worked hand-in-hand with the City Police Department to design and install an enterprise class storage solution. S-3 sourced the technology specifications, managed the implementation and provide support and training for staff. The new system is a 500TB HPE 3Par storage solution consisting of two 250TB storage systems mirrored to two different locations. Body and vehicle cameras automatically record and then auto-connect and upload to a media server and the 3Par storage at shift change.
SIMPLIFIED SERVER MANAGEMENT
A large US organization operates hundreds of mission-critical servers across a number of locations. They wanted to streamline their operations and free up their senior IT engineers by simplifying server management and replacing their current management platform, which was too complex and cumbersome.
S-3 participated with the CIO and his team in an educational process to review a deep product portfolio, develop and source specifications, provide demonstration and proof of concept equipment, implement the solution and provided support and training. The chosen solution was HPE OneView a very powerful automation-enabled tool that assists in the simplification of very complex server management practices. Additionally, HPE OneView utilizes REST API which allows the organization's development team to extend the system using whatever scripting tools they prefer to develop their own automation schemes. The new management platform has simplified operations, eliminated complex silos and increased productivity.
CYBER ATTACK MITIGATION
Corporations and Federal Agencies are not the only organizations that have to be concerned with cyber threats. States and local government such as cities, counties and local agencies can also become targets. But local government efforts to protect sensitive citizen data and vital public services are often hampered by budget challenges, aging infrastructure and a shortage of specialized cyber security talent.
A large municipality wanted to reduce their risk of security breaches by adding safeguards to protect against, detect and mitigate breaches if they occur. Speed of detection and response was vital. According to industry research, many breaches are not even detected until as much as 8 months after the fact. That kind of delay was unacceptable to the City.
The team at S-3 worked with the City's IT department to help develop a strategy and source, install and train staff on a security solution that would meet their needs. Central to that solution is 5thColumn's next-generation security as a service offering. This automated detection and response system collects and ingests extensive info logs from the City's systems, applies AI and machine learning processes and correlating what is seen in the logs with all other customer's logs in a blind manner. This powerful process reduces the time it takes to recognize that there is an issue by 850% and immediately provides an actionable mitigation 'to-do-list' to the City's security staff. The City's new security service is delivered non-invasively and without complicated design. The solution extends the capabilities of the City's existing investments and staff.
