East Brookfield, Mass. (PRWEB) February 27, 2009
MassBiz, LLC announced today its new web site called PhysicalSecurityTechnologist.Com (PST). PST is a physical security technology portal and emerging community, enabling industry peers to share professional knowledge about physical and IT security technologies, news, events, ideas, solutions and projects.
The PST platform supports security & IT professionals who need to make strategic decisions in the rapidly converging physical security market through collaboration. The PST physical security technology platform will incorporate blogs, video, both interactive-professionally produced and end-user generated, with manufacturer and security association neighborhoods, unlimited discussion groups, wikis and powerful APIs, facilitating targeted community interaction in which physical security and IT security users and advertisers can participate. James McDonald, CEO of MassBiz, LLC, the principal owner of PST said of the new site "We believe that a network-based model such as our own creates more value for its participants than the traditional sales advisor or consultant-based approach. With the high costs associated with the time and travel involved to keep up with new technologies that change every day, we wanted to offer a virtual 'trade show' alternative to help solve the problems associated with protecting people and assets. The collective experience and insight of the prospective tens of thousands of security professionals and executives in the global network has the potential to achieve commanding personal and corporate performance improvements and breaks the traditional compromise between cost and quality of information presented by traditional consultative sources and services."
Today's portal home page of news and information which is focused, but not limited to, physical security, will guide the development of the full community over the next few months. The security disciplines which are covered are video surveillance, infrastructure, monitoring, access control, asset tracking, business intelligence systems (BI), alarm systems, intrusion, fire and life safety, perimeter protection, physical security information management systems (PSIM), and executive protection and guard services. These products then, because of the overwhelming quantity of options, are offered as 'best-in-class' solutions within specific vertical markets like retail, hospitality, financial, home automation & security, gamming, corporate office solutions, data centers, healthcare, educational, institutional, industrial & commercial, transportation, and public works and homeland security. Members can discretely locate solutions and discuss successes and failures of each solution with their peers. McDonald say's "We use the language of membership to remind ourselves every day that this organization is centered over our members' interests, and not our own and we will achieve our objectives, only as a result of building value into long-term member relationships."
