Gallagher named Security Software Manufacturer of the Year
Global security manufacturer Gallagher has been awarded the Security Software Manufacturer of the Year accolade at the 2022 Security & Fire Excellence Awards.
The Security Software Manufacturer award category was created to celebrate the efforts of a security software vendor who has gone above and beyond in the areas of innovation; marketing; commitment to high physical, integration and cybersecurity standards; being a great employer, and building products that meet or exceed the latest environmental and energy usage standards.
Richard Huison, Regional General Manager for the UK and Europe at Gallaghers Regional, says the recognition reflects the company's in-depth knowledge in the cyber field, as well as its commitment to the safety of its customers.
"We're absolutely delighted to be named 'Security Software Manufacturer' of the year and to be recognised for the all-round excellence of our Gallagher Security Command Centre software," he says.
"Our customers are at the forefront of what inspires our innovation and I believe that our ability to consistently deliver such a high standard of product and service is a direct reflection of the outstanding levels of knowledge and skill held by our employees. This culture of innovation and excellence ensures that Gallagher remains a market leader and creates the enduring and successful partnerships we experience with our customers."
The company says that the Gallagher Command Centre is the powerful software at the heart of its integrated security solutions, providing a centralised platform that gives unparalleled control of every aspect of a site.
They say it is fully scalable and supported by continuous investment in research and development. It is also said to support future growth and changing security requirements as new types of threats emerge.
It also provides perimeter solutions, intelligent access control and building management for critical sites with some of today's highest security requirements. Gallagher says the technology is designed with people, site, business and building management in mind.
Now in its twenty-third year, the Security & Fire Excellence Awards is said to highlight the very best people, projects and processes that the security and fire sectors have to offer.
The awards ceremony occurred on Wednesday 23 November 2022, at the London Hilton in Park Lane, London, UK.
In 2020, Gallagher became the first New Zealand organisation to be authorised as a CVE Numbering Authority (CNA), giving the company more scope for assigning and communicating security vulnerabilities in its own product suite.
A Common Vulnerabilities and Exposure (CVE) number is a way of identifying a particular security vulnerability. CVE notifications enable security vendors and organisations to discover and correlate vulnerability information.
