OCTOPUS: CONVERGED SECURITY AT ITS BEST
As a former Israel Defense Forces combat soldier and officer in the paratroopers, it’s not surprising when Tal Bar Or, the CEO of OCTOPUS, spells the mission that drives him: The sense of creating a secured world. “But it’s not an easy task to achieve,” he says. Being a corporate security and risk consultant, Bar Or understands what CIOs and security administrators are dealing with today. “With globalization, they are struggling to gain a comprehensive overview of security, risk analysis, and Common Operational Picture (COP) of all their assets and staff around the world,” adds Bar Or. The disparate nature of security solutions add to the complexity, hindering the ability to manage and correlate information for
effective decision making. CIOs need smarter· tools that can provide a bird’s eye view of physical security, safety, cyber security, and operational requirements-from one system, in real time and in a proactive manner. OCTOPUS was established to fill this gap, and the results are already visible. With a new breed of smart, agile, and easy to deploy Command and Control software system, OCTOPUS has been recognized as the most innovative command and control system by Frost and Sullivan last year.
Born under the supervision of Bar 0r and Baruch Tagori- a cyber technology expert and global cyber risk consultant OCTOPUS offers the industry’s only completely cloud-enabled, converged physical security and cyber event management platform with all the necessary tools. “The advanced Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) Command and Control Center takes the guesswork out of our· client’s security management by unifying disparate security devices and information systems in to one converged platform,” says Bar 0r
